Cortinarius caperatus – The gypsy

Synonyms: Agaricus caperatus, Dryophila caperata, Pholiota caperata, Rozites caperatus, Togaria caperata.

Common name: the gypsy.

Russian name: Kolpak kolchatyy.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Cortinarius caperatus, commonly known as the gypsy mushroom, is a highly esteemed edible mushroom of the genus Cortinarius found in northern regions of Europe and North America. It was known as Rozites caperata for many years, before genetic studies revealed it lay within the large genus Cortinarius. The ochre-coloured fruiting bodies appear in autumn in coniferous and beech woods, as well as heathlands in late summer and autumn. The gills are free and clay-coloured and the smell and taste mild. Although mild-tasting and highly regarded, the gypsy mushroom is often infested with maggots.
