Fairy or Witch [妖精か魔女か]

Fairy or Witch, sometimes I wonder when meet a woman. It suggests the fact that beautiful woman would have two sides. Could be! Why - in Western Europa mostly- is it said Fairy or Witch particularly on women?

Top picture; far deep part of the ring in the bottom picture, that shows only half of the whole. From the front to the other side, circle diameter about 8m.

Such a ring in forests is named Heksenkring (Dutch), Hexenring (German). The 'Heksen/Hexen' means the witch according to my feeling, Singular form is Heks/Hex who is similar to 'bitch' or a agree (rather old) woman. [note 1] There is a woman in known story ''Hensel and Gretel. [note 2}


There are a dozen of mushrooms that make such ring. A typical case that I found in my field is this kind. The species name is 'nebularis' which means cloud, especially those in univers after the star-explosion. When looking at the surface you can feel the spread of the eternal universe.

Several colour schemes. * dark gray , *light gray-blue, *light bruin-gray, *very white, etct.. In fact a lot of colour varaeties as well as form. 'Hai-iro Shimeji' in Japanese name means just gray colour shimeji.

The word 'Hexenring' sounds, however, fancy image too. Because british words say it as Fairy-ring in which pretty fairies are dancing. Why? Mushrooms contains sometimes wonderful culinary taste, in addition to sometimes deadly poison. I can imagine why both Fairy and Witch are used to express these phenomena. By the way I would understand why those two expression match in general to women. [note 3]

Left picture; An example of another kind. This is a small circle, about diameter 1m. Perhaps socalled ''Butter cap (collybia butyracea)'' but I'm not sure. Right picture; the cap colour is dark gray, however, it gives alike impression as Nebularis @@; but stem and gill are very white. It could be a sort of 'Russula'.

Recently it happens a series killer criminal in city of Muko at prefecture of Kyoto Japan. It might be linked with the witch in kinds. On 28 december 2013 a rich stock merchant ''Isao Kakehi(75)'' was dead. The cyanide poisons was detected from his body. Two month ago he has just married with Chisako (67). They have known each other through Marriage consultant.

The woman resisterd herself to Dating-Bureaus too, even duaring a marriage. She married past 4 times and also relationship 3 times, These all 6 men of her x-husbands/boyfriends did a suspicious death. In last week the legal proceeding against her took place. People could say, finally and officially. Death penalty in Japan still exists. She would be sentenced to death.

Just like a model of the cup or the wine glas. The end of gill shows a typcal type which ends flows along the stem. You will be able to notice a clear difference of the gill's end between above right dark-hat example and this 'wine glas'.

There are very deadly Fungi zoals Death cap (Dutch; Groene knolamaniet), Kaen-dake (Japanese;カエンタケno Europian name;Podostroma cornu-damae), Deadly/Fool's webcap (D; Fraaie gifgordijnzwam soorten、ツバアブラシメジ類) and Angel wing (D:Schelpzwam, スギヒラタケ).

Angel of Mercy. A term in criminology. Chisako might be called so.
At first sight the 67 years old woman is seemingly 'genius serial murderer'. She learned how to get money by easy way when her first partner died. It looks like for her that earning money is just important than murder. Besides it was not discovered at first time. What made her such a real witch should be considered the dysfunction of social security minds, in addition to a bit traditional bureaucratic authorities (prosecutors and police).


An large example. The shape is umbrella, but there is often reverse type. Its diameter is about 20 cm which seems to be maximum size in the species. The wavy edges are like that of flowers.

This profile is a white buety isn't it! Inside of hat remains, however, delicaat blue-gray colour. Sometimes it is observed really white in whole body in a biotoop. It seems to be an 'albino', saying ; Colourless individual..

【Note】:
1. 'Kring' / 'Ring' is synonim as 'Circle'. 'en' of Heksen connects Hek and Kring, thus no plural.
2. German tail ''Hänsel und Gretel'' by brothers Grimm.
