Tracy Cheng - Lab 5 Journal Entry

The common bonnet, also referred to by its scientific name Mycelia Galericulata, is evidently found in vast forests. Specifically, they can be found growing in clusters on hardwood logs and stumps, mainly throughout Eastern North America. Common bonnet mushrooms typically grow within the spring and fall seasons, or even in winter depending on warmer climates. Sense wise, this mushroom can be described as having no distinctive odour and a taste that is somewhat "mealy". When noticing the structure of this fungi, they are generally able to grow a stem of approximately 5-9cm, and 2-5mm thick. Common bonnets usually appear whitish-brown with a very hollow, hooded cap.
