BEP Mushrooms

Witch's Hat (Hygrocybe conica) is one of the few mushrooms that grows under Redwoods and Cypress. Its shiny yellow cap and stem (along with its white gills) turn black as it ages or is injured. The cone-shaped cap is distinctive, and the color can be orange or red. The blackening is the ID criteria. Use a piece of black paper to make a spore print.
