Senu mate

In Latvian mythology, Senu mate ("mother of mushrooms") was the mate who presided over mushrooms and mushroom hunting, which was integral part of the lives of the ancient Latvians, and still is. Some Latvians say prayers (badly corrupted by time) or perform other rituals originally associated with Senu mate, when they go mushroom hunting.
