Synonyms: Agaricus detersibilis, Agaricus erinaceellus, Flocculina erinaceella, Phaeomarasmius erinaceella, Phaeomarasmius erinaceellus, Pholiota detersibilis, Pholiota erinaceella.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Flammulaster erinaceellus is a species of fungus in the agaric family Tubariaceae. It was first described in 1876 as Agaricus detersibilis by Charles Horton Peck. Roy Watling transferred it to Flammulaster in 1967. The fruit body has a hemispherical to convex cap 1–2.5 cm (0.4–1.0 in) in diameter that is covered with small, erect, brownish scales that can be readily rubbed off. The gills have an adnexed attachment to the stipe. The stipe is up to 2.5 cm (1.0 in) long and 2 mm thick. It is either hollow, or stuffed with a pith-like mycelium. The spores measure 7.5–9 by 4–5 µm. Fruiting occurs on logs in the woods.

Polish: Płomienniczek rdzawobrązowy.
