Resident Coniferous Forest - Row
Ridge mushrooms belong to one of the species, the variety of which can confuse even an experienced mushroom picker. In addition to delicious edible and obviously dangerous poisonous, there are also inedible rows. The most famous of them:
- Row Spruce. It grows in wet thickets of conifers and firs. The hat is small, up to 10 cm in diameter, resembling a light brown bell with a slight bulge in the center.

The leg is rather high, curved, inside is empty.
- Ordering is sulfur yellow. Found in deciduous and coniferous forests. Young mushrooms have rounded caps of sulfur-yellow color, in old ones they level off, and a bulge forms in the center, and the color darkens.

Legs of old mushrooms decorate dark scales, but not always. The flesh is yellow-green, it smells like acetone, bitter.
Young spruce rows can be confused with conditionally edible greenfinchs, but, unlike the first ones, greenfinchs grow on a short meaty leg and green color predominates in color.
