Galerina is a genus of small mushrooms first observed by F.S. Earle, and published in the Bulletin of the New York Botanical Garden. There are over 300 recognized species of galerina around the world, 12 of which have been observed in the Canadian High Arctic with circumpolar or bipolar distributions. Galerina are often found growing on wood, but these brown-spore mushrooms often prefer mossy habitats. Many of these mushrooms also contain amatoxins, which are extremely toxic if consumed.
