lisichka lozhnaja (лисичкаложная) (today's sample record)

Language: Russian

Description: False chanterelle. As its name implies, the false chanterelle masquerades as a chanterelle but, instead of the egg yellow of the chanterelle, this is a darker orange and sometimes with a graded cap, dark at the centre and becoming lighter towards the edges. The false chanterelle is found in woodland, particularly under pines. It is edible, but is rather bitter and tough and may cause indigestion. It is easily confused with other mushrooms which are poisonous, so especial care must be taken. (If gathering mushrooms you must be absolutely certain what you have before you eat them as many are very poisonous.)
