Slimy spike cap These are rather variable in color... but I think that this species that can be this apricot color. I wonder if the color is weather dependent? All of the examples I saw were this same rather light, faintly orangish tone. Geotagged,Gomphidius glutinosus,Slimy spike-cap,Summer,United States Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

''Gomphidius glutinosus'', commonly known as the slimy spike-cap, is a gilled mushroom found in Europe & North America. Although it has gills, it is a member of the order Boletales, along with the boletes. The fruiting bodies sprout in pine, fir and spruce woodland in Europe in autumn. Initially, are completely covered with a slimy veil, breaking through to reveal a greyish or brownish-capped mushroom with decurrent greyish gills which sometimes resembles a child's top. Opinions differ on the suitability.. more
