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.[1]

Rubeus Hagrid kept a jar of powdered staghorns in his hut.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • The staghorn mushroom is used in healing and has shown antitumor applications.[3]
  • However, the mushrooms shown in the prop do not resemble ordinary staghorn mushrooms. They may be a magical variety instead.
