Cantharellula umbonata, also known as Grayling is a small to medium-sized, funnel-shaped agaric with grey cap and forked gills that grow associated with Polytrichum moss and fruits in the summer and fall.
Cap convex at first, becoming flat to sunken; most specimens with a small, pointed umbo; margin incurved at first, becoming upturned and wavy in age; surface grey to greyish brown overall, often appearing to have whitish blotches; dry to moist; smooth to minutely hairy; flesh white; odour and taste not distinctive. Gills close to crowded, decurrent, repeatedly and regularly forked; whitish, developing spot-like reddish or sometimes yellow stains in age. Stem often with swollen portions; some-what flexible, often bent, curved, and/or twisted; white to grey; silky above, stuffed, usually with whitish mycelium binding the lower stalk to mass; often water-saturated near the base. Spore print white.
Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very hard to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. We recommend, because of this, that you don't eat wild mushrooms at all, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of the mushrooms listed here.
Although efforts have been made to ensure accuracy on this website, the information may contain errors and omissions and should not be relied upon and be used as any basis for eating any plants or mushrooms.
