Shroom Staining Red, Id
    #1043856 - 11/11/02 04:52 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I found a group of about twenty shrooms growing in a horse pasture. Their stems were white on the fresh ones and brown on the dry ones. The caps were white to brown with a dark center. Their gills were dark brown. They had veils and were all approximately 3 inches tall with caps ranging from 1 inch to two inches in diameter. The strange thing is that they bleed red aggressively when handled. I was wondering if anyone knew what kind this could be and if they are active or not. Thanks, . . .

More description would be helpful, but at first glance they sound like Mycena hematopus.

Happy mushrooming!

Yeah, those are Reddening Lepiota, they are edible and actually good. there are some poisonous look a likes so make sure you get a spore print. If it comes up green then you have the poisonous green spored Lepiota(Chlorophyllum molybdites). They could also be L rachodes or L flammentineta.

Are you sure you didn?t want to say they are BRUISING red?
L. rachodes don?t bleed red, but they bruise reddish.

There are a few similar Mycenas which bleed red. Mycena hematopus grows on wood and Mycena sanguinolenta grows on the ground. Mycena subsanguinolenta also grows on the ground but usually tends to bleed a more orangish color.

look at the VENEZUELA: Mushrooms of the Andean Highlands post, the mushrooms I found had little fibers of red going along the inside of the stipe. Did your mushrooms also have this?

It was Mycena hematopus because they were hundreds of them growing off of this big stump. It was a beautiful site :smile:

I wish there was a book that a picture of every mushroom in it, cuz I have heard of and seen lots of species in the US that aren't in either of my field guides.
