This site contains no information about the edibility or toxicity of mushrooms.
Bankera fuligineoalba, also known as Blushing Flagrant Tooth, is a medium to large, fleshy to fibrous cap with a spiny under surface. It is dark yellowish-brown at center to yellowish-pink or pinkish-brown on the margin. It becomes much darker and quickly water-soaked in wet weather.

Cap convex at first, becoming flat or depressed at center. Margin thin, in-curved when young, lobed and wavy later. At first pallid, then brown with yellow or red tinges, remaining more pallid at the margin. Pine needles adhere to densely mattered surface fibrils. The flesh is soft and brittle. Stem white at the apex, becoming dull brownish below, equal or tapered towards the base, downy, sometimes eccentric.

Similar species include Bankera violascens and Sarcodon species that have brown coloured spores.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very difficult to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. Because of that, we strongly advise against consuming wild mushrooms, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of mushrooms.

Although efforts have been made to ensure accuracy on this website, the information may contain errors and omissions. Therefore, the information presented here is for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as any basis for consuming any plants or mushrooms.
