Autumn - Time for Mushrooms

The autumn arrived and with it, the while mushrooms. Do you want to see how they look like under a microscope?

We used a SMZ-171 TLED and a Moticam 5 to observe some particularities on Lactarius deliciosus, commonly known as the Saffron milk cap, Red pine mushroom.

These mushrooms grows under the
acidic soil of conifers and forms a mycorrhizal relationship with its host tree. It is native to the southern Pyrenees where it grows under Mediterranean pines. It is much appreciated in the Mediterranean gastronomy, special in Spain, but is also used in the Proven├žal cuisine, in Poland and Russia.
