MUSHROOM (BOLBITIUS VITELLINUS)
Bolbitius vitellinus is a small, yellow, attractive mushroom that is easily recognized by its viscid, striate cap, yellow brown gills, rust-brown spores, lack of a ring, and habit of growing either on dung or grass. Like many small Coprinus (s.l.) species, fruitings are ephemeral, mushrooms opening in the morning, then shriveling by the end of the day. Occasionally, unusually robust specimens are found which may persist for several days.
