[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hypholoma fasciculare, commonly known as the sulphur tuft, sulfur tuft or clustered woodlover, is a common woodland mushroom, often in evidence when hardly any other mushrooms are to be found. This saprophagic small gill fungus grows prolifically in large clumps on stumps, dead roots or rotting trunks of broadleaved trees.
The \"Sulphur Tuft\" is bitter and poisonous; consuming it can cause vomiting, diarrhea and convulsions. The principal toxic constituents have been named fasciculol E and fasciculol F.

Hi Thijs,
Ik ben er inmiddels achter dat het determineren van paddenstoelen onlofelijk lastig is. Ik zit zelf ook met een aantal foto's van paddenstoelen waarbij ik geen idee heb wat het is.
Mooie foto is dit in goede scherpte. Prima diepte ook in de foto. Ik heb alleen het idee dat de paddenstoelen iets overbelicht zijn omdat deze soort over het algemeen toch geler/ bruiner van kleur is.
