Suspected Gyms & Other Mushies ID Request plz
    #11195319 - 10/06/09 07:18 PM (8 years, 15 days ago)

So today i took a long ass trek through the heart of the local forest. Below are my suspected finds of the day. I also met some new forest friends, Jerry the Buck, and Francesco, Jan, and their son Ivan the Wild Turkeys, and Bill the Angry Spider, As well as stumbling onto a huge 3ft long bees nest dripping with honey (all of which were camera shy)

These are the suspected gyms I found. They were pretty fucking dry and smelled like fruit though. They were still fairly moist though. (Pics below)

Habitat:
Rotting Tree.

Gills:
Orangish Tan/light brown? Attached. Wavy.

Stem:
Length - all were within 2 inches to about 5 inches long. Color - White. Texture - fibrous. rough. They were pretty dried out it seemed so they felt thick sum were really hard some were really soft. Also all of them had an annulus.

Cap:
Diameter: about 1.5 inches to 3 inches.
Color: Some were tannish brown, some of them were dark orange.
Texture: Soft, spongy feel.  Im not sure how to describe the shape. The pics should explain it pretty well.

Spore print color:
Still waiting. Will update.

Bruising:
None that I could tell.

Other information:
Smelled kinda nice, sorta like fresh fruit.







Moving on Here are some other finds that i didnt pick. An ID would be nice jus tbecause i want to learn there names. I suspect the first 3 are some form of Mycena.

This lil guy was extremely small. Hadda use Macro Shot to the Max.


Next up sum other tiny ass shrooms on the same log.



Moving on these were the first guys i found and looked pretty fucking old. They felt hard too.


This here was a suspected puffball but I couldnt get a very good shot.


Giant Shelf Mushroom of some sort. Oyster maybe?


I dont know what these are but they looked like pancakes. One of them was extremely bright red but i wasnt able to get a picture of it.


Lastly this is the wierd ass random suspected ritual circle me and a friend found.


And this is all the shit i came through to find these.

Would it be safe to take a small taste of the suspected gyms or is that pretty much frowned upon?

Well, yes but make sure its a small piece, roll it around in the front of ur mouth, and then spit it out, do not swallow. Gymnopilus are known for their extreme bitterness (in fresh species) i have never tasted dry ones, so as far as taste goes im not sure. There are some poisonous look-alikes like galerina, so like i said, a small piece wont hurt you just spit it out after flavor, i normaly spit multiple times and wash my mouth out with water (good practice)

yea thats fine. just spit it out after you get the taste, imo, those dont look like any gyms iv seen, but then again i have only seen gymnopilus luteus/luteuofolius/spectabilis My avatar is Gymnopilis Spectabilis(Junonius)(Big Laughing Gyms) The white stem is what is throwing me off, and something about the gills.

The annulus is NOT PERSISTANTLY HIGH - and the colors are off specially the whitish stems

Close call but not an active gym - nor would i for sure call them gyms at all

Keep hunting bro i swear they will find you!!
