Extract from Wikipedia article: Cystoderma amianthinum, commonly called the saffron parasol, the saffron powder-cap, or the earthy powder-cap, is a small orange-ochre, or yellowish-brown, gilled mushroom. It grows in damp mossy grassland, in coniferous forest clearings, or on wooded heaths. It is probably the most common of the small Cystoderma genus. Possibly edible, it is not recommended due to its unpleasant odour and resemblance to poisonous species.
