Sheathed Woodtuft Kuehneromyces mutabilis

Sheathed Woodtuft Kuehneromyces mutabilis

This is quite an attractive and colourful little mushroom which grows in large tufts on rotting tree stumps and logs. It is very similar to the Funeral Bell (Galerina marginata) which is deadly poisonous. This was found on a mossy White Willow which had fallen near the river.

  1. Excellent photos Pete! The funeral bell variety is aptly named too from what you have shared! I enjoyed learning that. Take good care friend!

  2. What sweet arrays–when I see them arranged like this, I can’t help but picture a little faerie drummer sitting there having a gentle go at them, but then, usually, I can’t keep another image from appearing and displacing it, the unforgettable Muppet drummer, Animal.

  3. I miss walking in the woods and looking for interesting mushrooms. I know you have to catch them quickly, or they are gone! Yours are lovely.
