Hydnum repandum – Hedgehog mushrooms

You don’t see the distinctive teeth on hedgehog mushrooms until you pick them. Tuffy P and I picked a few this morning. Here’s how they appear in the forest.

IMG_1851 2IMG_1846IMG_1850There are two types of hedgehog mushrooms, Hydnum repandum and Hydnum umbilicatum. These are Hydnum repandum. Hydnum umbilicatum in our area appear with flatish caps close to the ground, with a “belly button” on the cap. I have found they tend to be more orangy-tan than the others. Both are equally excellent to eat. Just be sure you know what you’ve picked 100%.

Have your say...
