''Hypholoma lateritium'', sometimes called brick cap, is rarer and less well-known than its relatives, the inedible, and poisonous sulfur tuft and the edible ''Hypholoma capnoides''. Its fruiting bodies are generally larger than either of these. ''Hypholoma sublateritium'' is a synonym.

In Europe this mushroom is often considered inedible or even poisonous, but in the USA and Japan it is apparently a popular edible fungus. One further reason to avoid it is the possibility of confusion.. more
