Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca talker is a false mushroom that is often confused with a highly valued edible fox of ordinary Canthallus cibarius. The fruit surface is covered with a multiplebranched glorylike structure, which is very characteristic and devoid of crosslair foxes. Some people consider orange talkers safe for use (but with a bitter taste), but in general, mushroom pickers do not collect this type.
French mycologist Rene Charles Joseph Ernest Mayor in 1921 transferred a dialect of orange to the Hygrophoropsis genus, and gave the generally accepted scientific name Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca.
From 2 to 8 cm across. Initially, convex hats expand, turn into shallow funnels, but individual specimens remain slightly convex or flat when they are fully matured. The color of the hat is orange or orange-yellow. The color is not a constant feature: some specimens are pale orange, other bright orange. The edge of the hat usually remains slightly curled, wavy and intermittent, although this feature is less pronounced than that of Canthallus Cibarius, with which this mushroom is sometimes confused.
They have a brighter orange color than the color of the hat, many times branching sporeforming structures of the false fox straight and narrow.
As a rule, from 3 to 5 cm in height and from 5 to 10 mm in diameter, the hard legs of Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca have the same color as the center of the hat, or a little darker, gradually pale to the base. The surface of the leg near the verge of the part is slightly scaly. Smell/taste softly mushroom, but not distinctive.
Habitat and environmental role
The false chanterelle is quite common in continental Europe and North America in the forest zones of the temperate climate. Orange talus prefers coniferous and mixed forests and wasteland with sour soil. The mushroom grows in groups on a forest litter, moss, rotting wood of pine and anthills. Saprophytic mushroom is an orange dialect from August to November.
A popular edible look of an ordinary chanterelle is found in similar forest habitats, but has veins, not gills.
The false chanterelle is not a seriously toxic appearance, but there are reports that some people suffered from hallucinations after consumption. Therefore, the orange talker treat with caution. If you still decide to cook the mushroom after prolonged thermal preparation, do not be surprised that the legs of the fruit will remain tough, and the hats feel like rubber with a weak wood flavor.
The benefits and harm of orange talk for the body
The false chanterelle in folk medicine is added to potions, and the healers believe that it fights infectious diseases, removes toxins from the gastrointestinal tract, restores digestion, reduces the risk of blood clots.
