The parrot toadstool has been elected Mushroom of the Year 2014, this choice is not fortuitous. The parrot toadstool is characteristic of arid grasslands where the soil has not been disturbed for a long time. Where it occurs there are often also other special grassland fungi. It is also one of the most easily recognizable waxcaps. Help the mycologists and go looking for the parrot toadstool.
