Pholiota squarrosa

Common Name: Scaly Pholiota

Synonyms:

Substrate: Wood 

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Brown

Comments: 

Always a neat find, this mushroom is often found on well decomposed wood. Look for the well developed scaly surface on the cap and stem. It should also have a ring on the stem.

Lookalikes: 

Pholiota squarrosoides is very similar but has a slightly gelatinous surface to the cap.
