COOLEST thing I've ever found...seriously!!
    #16382240 - 06/14/12 07:55 PM (2 years, 5 months ago)

Habitat:
Where does it grow? Eg. woods, pasture, state, province, country, altitude, etc. What does it grow on? Eg. soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?), etc.
Semi-wooded lot in pine & oak debris, SE GA

Gills:
Color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc.
spines/teeth, they were minute, can't estimate length but they were seriously tiny- warm light brown in color

Stem:
Length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc.
hard to decipher, it grew from a BRIGHT TANGERINE ORANGE base that was the same reishi-like texture as the cap

Cap:
Diameter, color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc.
It was approximately 3 in across, maybe a tad bit bigger, oblong shaped, lobed. The texture was smooth and kind of rubbery, and slightly pitted. AND BRIGHT,LIGHT, LAVENDER-BLUE PURPLE!!

Spore print color:
Very important! I didn't take one, i put it back where I found it- I was being eaten alive by chiggers!

Bruising:
Color that the mushroom bruises, if any. Damaged areas of the tooth surface seemed to bruise a darker shade of their own color.

Other information:
Scent of the mushroom, anything else you think is important, large close-up pictures showing stem, cap and gills.
Smelled pleasantly earthy/mushroomy. Like reishi but... fruitier?



I can't find this in my field guide, Mushrooms of the Southeastern United States. Shape is similar to what is described for Mycorrhaphium adustum (kidney-shaped), but the colors/textures are all wrong. My crappy phone camera pics don't show the cap to it's greatest advantage, it was definitely PURPLE. In fact when I spotted the cap, before I bent down, I thought I was about to finally find a Lactarius indigo (which i WILL be finding this year, dammit!). I'm on a roll with purple mushies, hopefully that L. indigo isn't far behind! :smile:
If anyone can fix these pictures please do, and i am going to be getting an SD card for my new camera this weekend and putting a stop to these smeary pics!

You were raised up in the city,
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways,
Ah, 'bout country ways."

Hydnellum caeruleum?
Blue and orange hydnellum, should be a really unusual find for my area.
I guess my lackluster pics really undermine the beauty of this amazing mushroom. :sad:
