Lion’s Mane/Bearded Tooth Mushroom

Stumbled across this Bearded Tooth Mushroom back in December while stopping for lunch in the Bienville National Forest(Mississippi).

Hericium Erinaceus is the scientific name. It’s also known as satyr’s beard, bearded hedgehog, and pom pom mushroom. It’s a popular edible and medicinal.

In Chinese and Vietnamese the name translates to “Monkey Head Mushroom.” In Japanese; “Mountain Priest Mushroom.” And in Korean it’s known as “Deertail Mushroom.”
