Green moss photo and description of the edible mushroom where it grows, appearance

The type of mushroom mushrooms is green growing under broadleaved trees, but also fruit on the border of coniferous plantings with birch and willows (in detail about the types of mossy).

Since the fungus does not have pronounced characteristic features, there are difficulties with confident identification, even experienced mushroom pickers, but a simple chemical test removes doubts. The hat becomes bright red if you drop ammonia.

Where the mosses grow green

These mushrooms are endemic for most countries of continental Europe, Asia, Eurasia and North America, Australia.

Appearance of a green moss

Young hats inside are white, hemispherical and pubescent, become smooth and indepth, crack when ripening and expose yellow pulp under the cuticle. The skin of the hat is difficult to remove. With the complete opening of the pale olive or yellowish-brown color of the greens mossy hat:

  • become dark brown;
  • gain a diameter from 4 to 8 cm;
  • without coloring pigmentation at the edges or in cracks;
  • have the edges of uneven, a little wavy.
  • Pulp 1-2.5 cm thick, solid. Color from whitish to pale yellow, blue after cutting.

    The tubes and pores are yellow-chromium, darken with age, the tubes are attached to the stem. When exposed, pores usually (but not all specimens) turn blue, but in all samples this area is brown.

    The leg in the color of the hat or slightly darker from 1 to 2 cm in diameter, with a length of 4 to 8 cm, sometimes slightly convex at the ground and expands to the top near the hat, the flesh does not change the color or slightly blushes when cutting. There is no ring on the leg.

    Disputes of uneven ellipsoidal shape, smooth, 10-15 x 4-6 μm. The spore printing is brown-olive. Smell/taste mushroom.

    Environmental role and habitat

    This mushroom is found in separate specimens or in small groups in broadleaved or mixed forests, in park plantations, especially in areas with a limestone soil type, forms connections with

  • oaks;
  • beech;
  • rakes;
  • birch.
  • When mushroom pickers expect crop

    Fruit a green moss from August to October and even in November, if not cold.

    Similar species that are safely eaten along with the mossy green

    Cracking mossy (Boletus chrysenteron) is characterized by a reddish leg, usually an irregular pinshaped shape.

    Barnish moss (xerocomus frrugineus) its pulp is a whitish (including at the base of the legs) and does not change color when exposed, it is found mostly under coniferous trees.

    Mookhovik Red (Xerocomus Rubellus) is characterized by pinkish or pinkish-brown flesh at the base of the leg.

    Inedible similar mushrooms

    Wood mossy (buchwaldoboletus lignicola) grows on wood (prefers pine), and not on soil. The skin of a loose hat cracks at aging. Yellow pores change color to brownish. In places of damage, blue with a greenish tint.

    Hat from rusty to brown-yellow color. The leg is yellow, tall, brown at the base. Prefers coniferous trees for mycorrheal bonds. Often meets with Polip Phaeolus Schweinitzii, and actually grows on a polypor, not on a tree.

    Culinary notes

    The green moss is edible, but cooks do not value the taste of the fungus highly. Do not find a recipe that would be written specifically for cooking these mushrooms. When the crop failure for other species, then the green mosses are fried and boiled, added to dishes with other mushrooms. Like other mushrooms, this species is dried and subsequently used, but not stored for long. The fact is that the mold on the hats of green mosses damages drying, it blackes up too.
