Yellow Unicorn Entoloma (also red and white varieties)

Entoloma is a genus of mushrooms with about 1,000 species.

I found this mushroom under some Hinoki and Sugi. It was tucked away in the shade hiding inconspicuously, silently. In elegant solitude it’s gentle yellow barely audible among the Sugi twigs. I’ve read it has an unpleasant smell…

Beware it’s inedible and possibly toxic.
