The Search for Amanita Muscaria
    #1133976 - 12/12/02 03:38 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

I had no luck finding any Fly Agaric, but I did find plenty of these...... see pic...




I was unable to ID them, has anyone got any suggestions to what they might be.
They were found in large numbers throughout a pine forest in the UK. Current temp is just above freezing.

The following picture should provide you with an idea of the type of habitat...>

Overall, they resemble Collybia dryophila, which is a very variable species. A few years ago this species was renamed Gymnopus dryophilus and there was some splitting done. This key gives you the information you need to ID it to species, but you'll need a microscope and some reagents to do it. Note that your specimens also seem to fit the description for Gymnopus erythropus, but I haven't been able to find a photos of that species to compare to yours.

Happy mushrooming!

They could also be Rhodocollybia butyracea, a Collybia dryophila cousin.
