Galerina Autumnalis Laccaria laccata


        Agarics, also called gilled fungi, are what most people think of as mushrooms. The fruiting body consists of a flattened to variously rounded cap attached to a stalk. On the underside of the cap, usually radiating from the top of the stalk, are thin blade-like structures called gills. The spores of an agaric are produced on the sides of these gills. As a group, the agarics display a considerable range of diversity with respect to color, size, shape and their role in nature. Many different species form mycorrhizal associations with forests trees, while others decompose wood or forest floor leaf litter.
