The Mushroom type Max and Kamil are hunting for is a Honey Mushroom (Armillaria mellea) - eatable muschroom, and most recognizable pick with honey-brown colored cap, 4-8 mm blades, 50-200 mm stem with yellow or brown ring, which most often is found in groups growing on or next to fallen trees. They can be found most often in fall from September to October all over Poland.

Mushroom hunting or mushrooming is the activity of searching for mushrooms in the wild, typically for eating. It is popular in most of Europe, from the Nordic, Baltic and Slavic countries (see mushroom picking in Slavic culture) to the Mediterranean Basin[citation needed]. Due to global warming, British enthusiasts today enjoy an extended average picking season of 75 days compared to just 33 in the 1950. To some it is a sport - one in which the mushrooms may actually have a chance of "winning" if the person eating does a poor job identifying the species. However, picking mushrooms and eating them is a safe occupation, provided one recognises the toxic types, properly identifies the species, and stays with the most common edible ones. There is a large number of mushrooms species that are favoured for eating by mushroom hunters. The king bolete is a popular delicacy. Sulphur shelf is often gathered because it occurs in bulk, recurs year after year, is easily identified, and has a wide variety of culinary uses. Chanterelles and morels are among the most popular types of mushrooms to gather, the latter being fairly hard to misidentify by anyone with practice. Only experts, however, collect from dangerous groups, such as Amanita, which include some of the most toxic mushrooms in existence. Identification is not the only element of mushroom hunting that takes practice - knowing where to search does as well. Most mushroom species require very specific conditions some will only grow at the base of a certain type of tree, for example. Finding a desired species that is known to grow in a certain region can be a challenge.
