The staghorn is a species of mushroom with a flat, brownish cap. It is sold at the apothecary in Diagon Alley and thus is presumably used in Potion-making.
Rubeus Hagrid kept a jar of powdered staghorns in his hut.
Behind the scenes
- The staghorn mushroom is used in healing and has shown antitumor applications.
- However, the mushrooms shown in the prop do not resemble ordinary staghorn mushrooms. They may be a magical variety instead.
