Cross Sound mushroom hunt (pix & ID req-cyans)
    #1105771 - 12/03/02 12:38 AM (14 years, 4 days ago)

[EDIT] - Hopefully all these pix load now! Sorry... I copied the code as shown... thanks for your patience!

Well I've been on a tear to find my first Ps. Cyans patch. I've spent at least two hours every day for the last four or five days!

I'm often disappointed but I'm amazed at how good I've gotten at spotting (the wrong) mushrooms.

I've limited my search to alder spots (landscaping chips, twigs etc.) - and out in Kitsap (west of Seattle across the sound), very few places landscape with alder, making the search tougher. Anyway, today I think I hit pay dirt - maybe.

I foound a new development where the builder cleared the land, and then spread thick alder chips/twigs etc. to keep grass etc. from growing. Its a virtual mushroom jungle, though I fear the cyans have all been picked - its such an obvious spot!

I also found a different batch near a shopping outlet which had a layer of alder mulch.

The pix are rough but they give an idea of what I've found.. any help ID'ing greatly appreciated!

Here is the batch I picked today (Group shot). The suspected cyans are lower right.:



Here is the fisrt pic of what I think is cyans. The tops were orange/caramel. The stalks are whitish/yellow, and appear to stain. The pix aren't showing the colors well.. the staining is dark, but the inside of the stank is yellowish:



Another pic of the same group. The stalks aren't pure white, and the caps inside also have a yellowish color and don't appear to stain when cracked:



Here's one of the larger ones I found. This shows the yellowish color and the dark staining on the stalk. I'm doing a spore test on this one. The inside of the stalk was light yellow:




In the field with alder I found these clumped together. Dark brown/chestnut with white stalks. Far as I can tell no blueing at all :frown:....




Last pic.. a shot of the lighter of the shrooms which look yellowish. You can see the staining.. not very pronounced on these:





So bottom line is I think I'm getting close but I feel very unsure of myself as to whether I'll know a cyans when I have one. Thanks again for any tips, ID's or advice!

Sorry but they are not P. cyanescens. maybe Cortinarius, but not P. cyans.

As the rest said, nope, they are not cyans.

Thanks all... I'm comiited to keeping going until I find cyans.

So many shrooms out here [Paulsbo area etc.] yet alder seems in short supply.

I think a trip East to Seattle is in order!

Thanks again for your help and I'm looking forward to posting my first cyans pics soon!

Paulsbo area... very close to you!

You'd think we'd be crawling in cyans out here!

Maybe we are and I just haven't discovered it yet!

Let me know how you do on the 'right' side of the sound...

Peace!

Another voice saying - no way are any of those Cyanescens.

Finding them for the first time was for me a nearly religious experience, and I wasn't even high. It was as if they called to me and led me to them in this most unlikely place. That was several years ago and the adventure unfolds in new strangea way every year.

Once you find them, it's amazing how distinct and unmistakable they become.
No matter how many pictures you look at, you don't quite "get it" until they are
right there beside your feet.

See those of you whom I may in the Astoria region in about eight hours...

I had my 'awakening' yesterday trellis see :

Roger_Barrett's first find

Just as you described.. it was amazing... it screamed at me in its hidden place!

I feel so embarrassed for having posted all these non cyans pix.. chalk it up to a right of passage I guess!

On with the hunt!

Peace!
