Species: A. xanthodermus
The Yellow-stainer mushroom displays a bright yellow colour at the base of its stipe when it is cut. It is poisonous for most people, yet some people can eat it without negative effects. The cap of the Yellow-stainer grows from 6 to 15 centimeters in diameter. The cap is initially convex and flattens as the mushroom matures. Some young species have a squarish shape. The gills change colour from pale-pink to chocolate brown as the Yellow-stainer matures. The spore print is brown. The stipe can grow from 1.5 to 3 centimeters in diameter and 12 centimeters tall. The Yellow-stainer displays such an intense colour reaction that it is difficult to confuse it with other mushrooms that turn yellow.
