Extract from Wikipedia article: Pholiota aurivella is a species of fungus in the family Strophariaceae that is found in native forest of New Zealand and in the United States. It is frequently found in the American West and Southwest, especially in late Summer and Fall. Some books list it as edible, but David Arora lists its edibility as "to be avoided." It is sticky or slimy when moist and grows in clusters on live or dead trees.
