  • About

Woodwaxes grow in association with trees. The caps are slimy or greasy, and the gills waxy to the touch. In general they are more fleshy than Hygrocybes. There has been a lot of movement between the generic names in the past, and names such as Cuphophyllus have been proposed. I have stayed with the names used in the British Mycological Society checklist current at the time of going to press.
