[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken at Slawoszewo forest near Police city.
The Brick Cap (Hypholoma sublateritium), is rarer and less well-known than its relatives, the inedible Sulfur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare) and the edible Hypholoma capnoides. Its fruiting bodies are generally larger than either of these. In Europe this mushroom is often considered inedible or even poisonous, but in the USA and Japan it is apparently a popular edible fungus. One further reason to avoid it is the possibility of confusion with Galerina marginata or H. fasciculare.
The cap is 3.5–10cm in diameter, usually with a brick-red coloration in the center and a paler margin. It is smooth, sometimes with red-brown flecks in the middle and sometimes with flaky veil remnants, which can easily be washed off in the rain, on the outside. The stipe is light yellow and darker below. The inedible fungus.
PL – maślanka ceglasta (grzyb niejadalny).

Ciao Olgierd.
Splendida composizione con ottimi dettagli che sei riuscito ha fotografare di questo gruppo di funghi con un’ottima nitidezza e splendidi colori naturali molto bella complimenti.
Ciao Marco.

Hi Olgierd this is a good shot but it could have been brighter and sharper.Inedible? I'm not sure but this mushroom looks like one kind I know that it's poison can be destroyed with boiling over 100 degrees.
