Today, in Liguria, Italy.
many and very nice
there where snow in the woods.
Snow and mushrooms :D
Interesting that they are appearing in early spring, not a time of year I associate with fungi. Is that normal for this species?
yes, this mushrooms grows under the snow
i've found them at 1300 mt, and at 1600 there were many snow in the woods.
edible, very good, and very nice.
not common, grows only under Abies alba, Pinus sylvestris, Picea excelsa, Fagus sylvatica and Castanea sativa, in woods when in the winter the snow falls down.

Thanks! Very unusual, I see it is even snow-coloured for camouflage. Hygrophorus marzuolus doesn't occur up here, but there are other species in the same genus here. Nice photos in the link!
PS 'Picea excelsa' = Picea abies :-)
Thanks to you!
In GB in this period there are mushrooms?
Not that I have seen, apart from perennial ones such as polypores. There might be some that I don't know about though (I don't know a lot about fungi, alas!).
Here...from 20 march we have a lot of edible mushrooms.
I have found many European sources saying that H. marzuolus is edible. And how timely this series of posts;, the species name means 'occurring in march'!
I have not, however, found any source in the US saying that H. marzuolus is edible, and have certainly not found anyone who has eaten the species over here. I can find H. marzuolus but am hesitant to eat it for this reason.
Does anyone eat the North American H. marzuolus or know anyone who has? And if not, does anyone have a reference saying that the variety out here is indeed edible?
I know that H.marzuolus grows also in the North america. And is edible, very good.
This H.marzuolus are from my Liguria, 10 march 2007.
Do you know what its full distribution is?
I know that it is found in the Rocky Mountains of the United States ...
Exactely!!! Under Abies alba, Pinus sp.
I haven't got here my books. Wait 2-3 days and I will reply You.
Well, presumably under Abies concolor or Abies lasiocarpa in the Rocky Mts ;-)
Ok. in rocky mountains and in the Sierra. my italian books didn't specify how and when. I suppose early spring under Abies sp. not near the cpoast, at higher elevations when snow goes off.
In the United States is also present the H.subalpinus, equal to H.marzuolus (subalpinus-->white cap; marzuolus--> grey)
Does it occur anywhere else in Europe?
In europe, is not common but rare.
Grows only in highest forest made of Abies, Fagus, Pinus, (not Larix!!!!)
Most famous woods are Vallombrosa (Florence, Toscana) and Monticolo (Trento, Trentino)
Grows also in Austria (Innsbruck) Spain, Switzerland (Chaux-De-Fonds) France (Merveilles, Verdon) and I suppose Finland, Danemark, Norway...
On my web.site (under construction) --> Genus Hygrophorus Photoshttp://www.apasseggionelbosco.it/cpg1410/index.php?cat=19
Definitely not in northern Europe! The conifer genus Abies does not grow here. Hygrophorus marzuolus has even not been encounterd under planted Abies trees.
