Sulphur tuft fungus model
Unsigned Sulphur tuft fungus model (Hypholoma fasciculare). The model is made of Painted plaster on a black wooden stand. Probably manufactured by Somso around 1900. Commonly known as the sulphur tuft or clustered woodlover, is a common woodland mushroom, often in evidence when hardly any other mushrooms are to be found. This saprotrophic small gill fungus grows prolifically in large clumps on stumps, dead roots or rotting trunks of broadleaved trees.
On the bottom of the botanical mushroom a description in German with characteristics of the cap, the stem, slats, spurs, odor, taste and common living conditions.
