Really Big, White Mushroom--What is it?
    #10749761 - 07/27/09 04:28 PM (4 years, 11 months ago)

This mushroom was found in a yard in north Louisiana after a few days of scattered storms humidifying and cooling off the 95+ temperature streak that started a several weeks ago. I live down the street from where I saw this mushroom and from a distance I thought it was a lawn ornament or something. Upon further inspection it was 4 of these large mushrooms.

Anyone know what this is?"

Most likely chlorophyllum molybdites.

Yep. You are right. They are very pretty in their lower stages of development. They grow around here in lawns, as well. They get decently big when they are fully mature. They have green gills. Yuck!

The peeling on the cap is one of the biggest giveaways for this species, as is the green spore print. I have seen some HUGE ones, like 8-9 inches across!

I just found a bunch of these in Jersey. Take a look at my pics in the following thread to see what they look like in different stages of development:

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/10763392

These are the biggest shrooms I've ever seen! Despite the cap's size, it is fairly light and "membraney," not meaty (like, say, an oyster).

These things really did get big! I didn't take a picture of them, but the caps are a solid 6-8 inches in diameter. I wish cubes were as conspicuous as these things :eek:!

that's one hip mushroom... up to the hip that is!

Usually you will want to make sure to get the base when picking a mushroom for id purposes, it can be very important.
