One of the first gilled mushrooms that appear in the spring. This mushroom will be growing from the gound, have white-pink gills, and a brown cap with a nipple in the center. The "group" refers to the fact that there are several mushrooms that appear very close to this description, and are impossible to sort out without a microscope and very good references.
