Yellowfoot Dapperling - 2
The yellowfoot dapperling mushroom is a pretty little mushroom found in coniferous and broadleaf forests around the world, but most commonly encountered in the Pacific Northwest and Europe. It has a somewhat shaggy appearance even when emerging from the forest floor with a very distinctive dark brown center on its scaly cap. Be wary with this one when foraging as the edibility of this species isn't clear, but it is related to some species that are quite toxic to humans when eaten. This one was found with many others in the forested mountains above Enumclaw, Washington on a very wet, cold October afternoon.
