hydnum or hedgehog mushroom
Often called the "hedgehog mushroom," Hydnum repandum is easily recognized by its pale orange-tan colors, its terrestrial habitat, and the spines or "teeth" on its underside. Over the years mycologists have suspected a relationship between Hydnum repandum (sometimes named Dentinum repandum) and the chanterelles. In fact the hedgehog mushroom is easily mistaken for a faded chanterelle--until you get a peek at its spiny underside. Edmund Michael (born 1849 , m. 1920 ) was a German mycologist. He studied agronomy in Leipzig , and will be a teacher at the Agricultural Academy of Auerbach ", in 1884. His major contribution was the publication of a " Field Guide Führer für Pilzfreunde "
