    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 :-)

    Hi Nico,

    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!).

    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?

    much appreciated!

    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)

    See Here:

    Bye Bye

    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...

    Nice collection basket.

    Did you make it, or, where did you order or acquire it from?
