Possibly Gymnopilus junonius?
    #11258757 - 10/16/09 11:40 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)



Habitat: Found on a birch tree on a golf course in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Gills: pale to brown, close together and none seem to have a bump or indent where the stem is. The younger ones have a veil under the gills, while the mature ones have only a red/brown ring where the veil used to be.

Stem: range from short to long, some are thicker at either end. Usually paler at the top, then brownish at the bottom. None seem to have bruised a noticeable blue, most turn a little brown.

Cap: were a yellowy-orange before they were picked, but have now faded to a bit paler, some parts are slightly browner. They are 0.5 inch to 5 inches, I seem to have picked a variety of younger and older. Young ones have rounder, more even caps while larger, older ones are either broadly round or almost flat. None seem to be umbonicate or indented.

Spore print color: Reddish orange

Bruising: Not much, sometimes a little brown.

Location: Prince Edward Island, Canada

I'm about 90% sure that these are Gymnopilus junonius, I just posted this here to see what you guys think. Any ideas?

I think they are in Gymnopilus.  They look a lot like Hypholoma fasciculare, but they aren't that.  Its hard to get to species without (or even with) using microscopic features.
