Meadows and pasture territories in comparison with forests lose in the number of mushrooms. However, meadow mushrooms also grow in sufficient quantities, so if there is no forest nearby, in summer and autumn you can go on a quiet hunt right on the meadow.
Distribution area: Saratov, Samara, Lipetsk and Lugansk regions
The branch of the science of mushrooms, which studies their geographical distribution, is called mycogeography and allows you to determine the places and sites where the most forest and meadow mushrooms are located on the territory of each region.
The distribution range of meadow mushrooms is very extensive and covers almost all soil and climatic zones of our country. The area of distribution of fungi has a predominant connection with their food sources and partner plants. The climatic features of the region have a secondary effect on the abundance and distribution of meadow mushrooms.
Outside the forest, both edible and poisonous species grow. When harvesting meadow mushrooms, one should definitely learn to distinguish between edible and conditionally edible species from inedible and deadly poisonous ones.
Of course, the most valuable from the point of view of nutrition and taste are actually porcini mushrooms, which are often called meadow mushrooms, and boletus. However, according to the observation of experienced mushroom pickers, Forest mushrooms are higher in quality than those growing in the meadow, because they are less likely to be worms.

Poisonous mushrooms: description and names
To the category of poisonous meadow mushrooms can be attributed to the pigs or grasslands, which often grow on pastures, which is why they got their second name. Also in the category of poisonous are the less common mushrooms presented in the table.
Edible Field Mushrooms
Among the edible mushrooms that most often grow in meadows are meadow mushrooms or meadow grass mushrooms, mushrooms and rowanings. Slightly less common are the white or black whites, white and black milk, usually near groves and forests. Most species of meadow mushrooms do not differ in nutritional value and taste from their counterparts collected in the forest.
As it is known to experienced mushroom pickers, you can return home with "booty" not only from the forest, but also from the meadow. Meadow mushrooms are varied and tasty, however, you should be careful when collecting so that the mushroom feast does not turn into poisoning.
