The diameter of this fungus usually varies from 5 to 12 cm.
Spore powder is white. Sometimes the fungus has light greenish color. In some cases fruiting bodies are so cracked,
so wrinkled and so close to each other that it is quite difficult to separate the specimens.
It grows alone or in clusters on bare ground or in moss, in spruce forests or rarely in pine forests from July to October.
Sometimes it grows along forest tracks. It is common in Latvia. Edible, one can fry it without boiling.
Best kinds of preserving are drying or pickling.
Cepama bez iepriekšējas novārīšanas, bet ēdami tikai jauni augļķermeņi. Vēlāk vairs nav īpaši garšīga. Laba kaltētā veidā.
