Rdr2 – parasol mushrooms location (galampernas)

In many places it is known as galampernas, lampernas, zarrotas, etc, to a group of species of the genus Macrolepiota, large mushrooms with cap surface torn into scales, cap and foot separable from the cap and white and free lamellae at maturity.
Closely related to the previous one, with an equally tigrated foot with brown scales, Macrolepiota konradii has a cap whose surface is torn into stellate bands instead of concentric scales.
The mameloned galamperna, Macrolepiota mastoidea has a more delicate habit, more stylized with a long and slender foot but with a white and smooth surface, without scales, with a cap marked with a protrusion or pointed mamelon and its surface is torn in many different ways that has led to create many varieties such as the variety rickenii with a very long foot, 2 to 3 times the diameter of the cap and somewhat scaly.
The semi-peeled galamperna or Macrolepiota excoriata, also with a smooth foot and without scales, is more typical of Mediterranean forests and has a hat very little torn in scales and only slightly bulging in the center, not properly mameloned.

Curiosities of the macrolepiota, parasol or galamperna mushroom

I give them a 10 because there is no 11 or 12. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a porch and a garden that is a marvel and is in a very quiet area. The breakfasts are extraordinary, where you can tell that Julian is a pastry chef (the scones, muffins, croissants … are delicious), although you also have fruit and sausage.
But the best of all are Montse and Julian. Charming, hospitable and very friendly. They will make you feel at home and, if you want, you will come back from there with two more friends, as it happened to us. We will come back and we will come back.

Fried mushrooms in batter

Fruiting body of the Macrolepiota procera mushroom. It is large, with a drumstick shape when young, but with a cap of up to 40cm when adult. It is brown with scales and a darker central mamelon that should be discarded. Its foot is slender and white, marbled with brown spots, very fibrous and also discarded. Its flesh is white, tender, delicate texture, with aromas reminiscent of green non-fleshy fruits, such as walnut or hazelnut. It is rich in nutrients and proteins. It admits all mushroom preparations, grilled, breaded or Viennese style, to make sandwiches, with quails, etc. In Sanabria, the collectors of this mushroom are called cucurrileros.

Galampernas on the plate

However, this mushroom should not be confused with Macrolepiota rhacodes, which apparently in small quantities is not usually toxic. With the exception of the more doubtful edibility, Macrolepiota rhacodes var. bohemica, hortensis and derivatives, where you can see a reddish hue when cut in the first, for example, although they are distinguished by their smaller height.
