The sulfur-yellow pseudo-foam (Latin Hypholoma fasciculare) is a poisonous mushroom from the genus Hypholoma of the Strophariaceae family.
Sulfur-yellow false foam grows on stumps, on the ground near stumps and on rotten deciduous and coniferous wood. It is often found in large groups.
The cap is 2-7 cm in ∅, first bell-shaped, then prostrate, yellowish, yellow-brown, sulfur-yellow, lighter along the edge, darker or reddish-brown in the center.
The pulp is light yellow or whitish, very bitter, with an unpleasant odor.
The plates are frequent, thin, adherent to the stem, first sulfur-yellow, then greenish, black-olive. Spore powder chocolate brown. Spores are ellipsoidal, smooth.
Leg up to 10 cm in length, 0.3-0.5 cm ∅, smooth, hollow, fibrous, light yellow.
Spore powder: Violet brown.
Distribution: Sulfur-yellow pseudo-grass is ubiquitous from late May to late autumn on decaying wood, on stumps and on the ground near stumps, sometimes on the trunks of living trees. Prefers deciduous species, but occasionally it can also be found on conifers. It usually grows in large groups.
Similar species: The greenish color of the plates and caps distinguishes this mushroom from most of the so-called 'honey agarics'. Gray lamellar honey fungus (Hypholoma capnoides) grows on pine stumps, its plates are not greenish, but gray.
Edible: Sulfur-yellow false froth is poisonous. When eaten after 1-6 hours, nausea, vomiting, sweating appear, the person loses consciousness.

Remarks I believe that at the competition of the most ordinary-looking mushrooms, the sulfur-yellow mushroom (or false froth) will never win the main prize: it will not be possible to attract the attention of the jury.
