Hypholoma fasciculare, also known as the Sulphur Tuft Mushroom, is a medium-sized agaric characterized by its greenish-yellow gills and tendency to cluster on dead wood.

Cap convex, sulphur-yellow, with a darker orange centre. It expands with age, appearing smooth but with velar remnants attached to the margin. The flesh is sulphur-yellow, firm, and of moderate consistency. Gills crowded, adnate, initially sulphur yellow, becoming olive-green and progressively blackening as the spores ripen. Stem is more or less similarly coloured as the cap, but it is darker brown towards the base. The ring is zone-like, faint, and with maturity same colour as spores. Spore print purple brown.

Microscopic Features: The spores are ellipsoidal, smooth, measuring 6-7.8 x 4-4.5μm, and feature a small germ pore.

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.
