Gymnopus peronatus, also known as Wood Woollyfoot is a small saprobic agaric that grows generally in smaller or larger clumps on leaves or needles in deciduous or coniferous woods and may be found from May to December.

Cap convex, expand and flatten out at maturity, sometimes retaining a broad umbo. Color quite variable, ranging from pinkish cream to yellowish or reddish-brown. Gills coloured as the cap or somewhat lighter, becoming reddish-brown as the fruit body matures. Stem roughly the same colour as the cap. It is typically pruinose ("frosted") above and strigose (hairy) near the base.

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.
