Helvella crispa

There are many sorts of mushrooms in the forest at the end of our street and since we were kids we liked picking the edible ones. Then it has always been interesting to find a differ one, as well. That happened to me this weekend. Which looked as fallen leaves at first glance, turned out to be Helvella crispa, a mushroom described in our country as early as 1772, by Giovanni Antonio Scopolli. This is not an edible mushroom, but it is fascinating to look at it. How well it mimics fallen leaves, be it in shape or in colour!
