Mitrula paludosa

The swamp beacon (US) or bog beacon (UK) is the club-shaped fruiting body of the Mitrula paludosa fungus (which was known as Mitrula phalloides).

Habitat[edit]

These mushrooms are found in swamps and bogs across North America in the cooler climates of south-eastern Canada, New England south to the Mason-Dixon Line, and much of the mid-western United States. Also present in Europe from the British Isles to Eastern Europe.

On the West Coast of the United States, the Mitrula elegans looks similar.

Identification[edit]

Many related species of Mitrula look identical without microscopic study. The cap or club is yellow with a white stalk (possibly with some pink coloration).
