Xeromphalina kauffmanii

Xeromphalina Kauffmanii ( Xeromphalina kauffmanii ) is one of the many species of mushrooms from the genus xeromphalin, the mycene family.

Usually they grow on stumps, in colonies (especially many of these mushrooms occur on rotting stumps in spring), as well as on forest floor, in clearings in spruce forests, deciduous forests.

The fruit body is small, while the mushroom has a pronounced thin-fleshy cap. The plates of the cap are translucent at the edges, the edges have lines. The diameter of the cap of the largest mushrooms reaches about 2 cm.

The leg is thin, capable of curving bizarrely (especially if a group of xeromphalin grows on stumps). Both the cap and the stem are light brown in color, while the lower parts of the mushroom are darker in color. Some mushrooms may have a slight coating.

White spores are elliptical.

Xeromphaline Kaufman is growing all over the place. There is no data on edibility, but such mushrooms are not eaten.
