Fairyring mushroom

(Calocybe gambosa)

The Fairyring mushroom has a cap measuring 5 – 12 cm, which is semispherical at the beginning and convex at the end, with the edge always pointing downwards. The cuticle is fine, smooth, separable, dry, and is white in young musgrooms, later becoming creamy yellowish in tone (with closely packed gills, that are uneven, white and arched). The stem is white, cylindrical, with a fibrous surface, and is of a hard and thick consistency. The flesh is thick, white and compact, and smells strongly of fresh flour.
