There are over a thousand different types of edible mushrooms in the world. The rogues also belong to them. This mushroom belongs to the Pluteaceae family. The names pluteus and pluteus are also used.
The fungus grows on woody debris and is a representative of the forest area.
They differ in the cap-toothed fruiting bodies. Plutey does not belong to the category of popular mushrooms, therefore, it is rarely harvested.
Not so long ago, scientists have proven that some of its types contain small doses of the hallucinogenic psilocybin, so it should be used with extreme caution for culinary purposes. Only certain types of spit are safe and are occasionally picked by mushroom pickers. For nature, these mushrooms play an extremely important and unique role: they destroy dead wood. The rogue mushroom is a "orderly".
