Cystoderma jasonis (NL: Oranjebruine korrelhoed / EN: Saffron parasol, Saffron powder-cap, Earthy powder-cap / DE: Langsporiger Körnchenschirmling / FR: Cystoderme à spores allongées, Cystoderme de Jason) is a small orange-ochre, or yellowish-brown, gilled mushroom growing in damp mossy grassland, in coniferous forest clearings, or on wooded heaths. Cystoderma jasonis is the current name for two taxa that were previously known as varieties of Cystoderma amianthinum (var. longisporum and var. sublongisporum). C. jasonis has a darker brown cap and stem with slightly larger granules, a sometimes purple stem apex, and slightly larger spores. Microscopic examination is necessary for a correct determination !
