Edibility, habitat and observations
Relationship with the surrounding plant environment: symbiote mushroom.
It grows under broad-leaved trees (especially beech trees), in summer-autumn.
Good edible. The Clavarias, as adults, take on shades that make the individual species equal: they are therefore to be consumed young.
