Snoqualmie pass mushroom hunt. ID help.
    #11216719 - 10/09/09 07:21 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I am only posting this thread in the ID request because I would like some help on two of the mushrooms That I collected today. The first I believe to be Amanita  cokeri or Amanita silvicola, and the second in question, I "assume" to be honey mushroom. Thanks for the help everyone.

Amanita silvicola?





Habitat:Found growing under Western Hemlock growing out of soil.

Spore print color: White

Bruising: pinkish bruising on stipe and cap.

Other information: No scent, and did not taste.

Some other pictures of mushroom finds.

This one looks like a dick!

Some coral
Oyster

not sure on this one.

Bolete love!!

Oysters


I'm not sure if these are honey mushrooms. Found growing in a ring at the base of a western red cedar. large clusters. Partial veil attached to stipe. Smells pleasant.



I like this picture. I think it came out better than any of the rest.


Not sure what these are, but believed to be some sort of Hypholoma. I found it strange that they were growing out of a Red alder that was still alive.


To everyone who reply's, Thanks for any help, or suggestions. And sorry
if some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy. For some reason, my hands were really shaky today, and I have yet to purchase a tripod.

Looks exactly like the bottom picture. I've found numerous other species like this one with fibrous veils (if that's what it indeed is). Very interesting, but definitely one I washed my hands off after touching, regardless.

Even though the outside is purple on that species a solid indicator is the gills (they will be brown-yellow). Also some report it has a "fruity" aroma. :smile:

when I smelled it, it reminded me of ripe peaches, or something like that. And the gills on older specimens, that I now believe to be of the same mushroom, were a slight brown/yellow. At first glance, I thought they were green, so it was something that I tend to stay away from (green gills). Thanks for the help! It's much appreciated.

The base doesn't look right for A. silvicola, and A. cokeri probably does not occur in your area.  You mention pinkish bruising but the base of the stem doesn't look right for the taxa near amerirubescens.  This would be a good one to post on http://mushroomobserver.org so Rod Tulloss can get a look at it.

2) Russula
3) Boletus infected with Hypomyces
4) Ramaria
5) Pleurotus
6) Cortinarius traganus
7) Boletus
8) Pleurotus
9) Armillaria
10) Pholiota aurivella

For the red one, compare it to Russula rosacea

The closest thing to the mushrooms I believe to be "honey mushrooms" is Armillaria ostoyae, after further investigation, (which I believe is the honey mushroom). It was found growing on western red cedar, which I will quote from "North American Mushrooms", "Armillaria ostoyae is an important pathogen of conifers causing a root disease. Observed on Western red cedar and Western white pine. it is most common on hardwoods in the Pacific Northwest." Am I just lucky to find it growing on a red cedar?

Would the Pleurotus indeed be Pleurotus ostreatus? it's the only pleurotus in my field guide that matches the specimen. I just don't want to eat something that's gonna give me the squirts.:grin:

The Armillaria was cooked using some butter, white wine (risque to be exact) onions, olive oil, pepper and salt, and added into a fantastic Cesar salad. As for the oysters, well, they found their way into some of the best calzone's I've ever made. Cooked using Santa Fe' seasoning, olive oil, garlic oil, pepper, and wrapped in pepperoni while sauteed. Outstanding!!!

I think your oysters look like Pleurocybella porrigens, close enough to oysters I suppose though :wink:...

EDIT: Also, your boletes look like Boletus mirabilis...

That's probably Pleurotus porrigens aka Angel's Wing. Pulled a 1/4lb of those outta that same area last weekend :thumbup:

Hey- nice finds!:thumbup: Did you boil the honeys before you sauteed them and ate them? I find they taste astringent if I don't boil them (sometimes 2 or 3 times) before sauteeing them or incorporating them in food. I've never had an upset stomach from them, either. :crazy2:


--------------------
I advise any noob looking to identify mushrooms to fill out the ID form and provide clear photographs. Knowledge is a privilege and deserves respect. Let's give due props to the experts!
