Gymnopilus picreus is a medium-sized saprotrophic agaric with an orange-brown cap that grows on conifer wood and sometimes on hardwood. Fruit bodies appear in summer and autumn.
Cap bell-shaped at first, later flattening out and orange-brown coloured. Gills adnexed or adnate, colour vivid yellow. Stem darker orange-brown than cap and darkening towards the base, covered with small light grey scales.
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.
