Thyroid dyscina

Fruiting body of thyroid discina: The form is disc-shaped or saucer-shaped, veiny, often irregular, strongly wavy. The diameter of the cap is 4-15 cm. The color varies from brown to pinkish-olive. The underside is off-white or gray, with prominent veins. The pulp is brittle, thin, whitish or gray, with a weak mushroom odor and taste.

Stem: Short (up to 1 cm), veiny, not separated from the lower surface of the cap.

Spore powder: White.

Distribution: Thyroid dyscina occurs from early May to mid-summer (mass release, as a rule, occurs in mid or late May) in forests of various types, in parks, often located near rotting tree remains or directly on them. Apparently prefers coniferous wood.

Similar species: In the same places and at the same time, Discina venosa also grows. It occurs, obviously, somewhat less often thyroid dyscina.

Edible: It is considered an edible mushroom of not the highest quality – something on the line of an ordinary one (Gyromitra esculenta).

Remarks What is interesting about this mushroom is that it appears in complete mushroomlessness (at least in 'our' places), and thus attracts increased attention. It must be admitted that the thickets of large, juicy discines make an all-round pleasant impression – especially if they turn out to be the only species of mushrooms found as a result of many hours of searching. Maybe a good impression is associated with the noble coloration of the fruit bodies, suggesting the idea of ​​a porcini mushroom. One way or another, the mushroom itself asks for a bag, and even fair warnings about its low value, without which no description is complete, are usually wasted.
