Interesting Mushroom, ident just for fun
    #11272642 - 10/18/09 07:39 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Ok so I'll be the first to admit that actually identifying this mushroom is unlikely. Honestly I'm just posting here because it'd be pretty interesting to see what it was. Unfortunately I did not pick it. I was out walking in a nearby park with my girlfriend and spotted this beautiful mushroom in a little clearing off the trail (it's a wooded trail). Here's the info that I have (forgive the picture, it was taken with a cell phone):



I am in central Florida, Gainesville to be exact.

Found in a wooded area, growing beneath a tree (which I believe to be an oak)
Gill-less with a spongy texture beneath the cap
The entire mushroom (cap, underside of the cap, and stem) was the same bright red color
Stem was smooth, not striated
Cap was deformed and bulbous. It fanned out umbrella shape)
Stem was tough and didn't bruise
Mushroom was a good size, cap was probably 4-5 inches across. Stem was about an inch in diameter and 3-4 inches tall.

Ok so anyone have any ideas? I know this is a shot in the dark but I'm curious. I'll watch this thread and answer any questions I can.

Yeah sorry, if you click on the picture you can see it. It's nearly the same color as the leaves :laugh:. Fall has just hit here in Florida. Literally up until about 4 days ago it was still 80-90 degrees daily. Now it's hanging around 60-70 daily, getting to around 50 at night.

And yeah I hate camera phones. For some reason the point of focus in that picture is in the top left hand of the picture. :frown:

Something in the boletales group. Impossible to make out more than that.

Agreed.

Judging by the colours, I would suggest maybe something like Boletochaete bicolor (=Boletus bicolor), but that is really going out on a limb.
Definitely would need more info and good photos to be sure of the genus or species.
