yellow spongy gills, red stem--1000s of these things whatever they are!
    #11387946 - 11/04/09 11:47 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)





I've got some better pics but couldn't get them off my camera before the battery died.  I don't think they're active, but more curious than anything why someone would go to the obvious effort of trying to destroy them since the hillside I found them on was off the beaten path a ways


Habitat:
1000s of these growing on a south facing hillside in the grass, under cedars and other conifers--hell they were all over under and around everything--taking over the place!  Seattle area.

Gills:
yellow and spongy

Stem:
red but turning to brown when they start to get dry.  biggest ones were about 1" in diameter or maybe a little thicker

Cap:
biggest of those I saw was about 4-6" in diameteter

Spore print color:
didn't pick or print

Bruising:
didn't pat attention--assumed they weren't active and just left them

Other information:
someone has been there with a shovel or something sharp chopping them up (a losing battle though--there are literally 1000s of these things all over the hillside).  But the fact that someone would take the time to try to destroy them made me think they're poisonous.

Suillus sp.

May have been destroyed by a bolete hunter.  If they were looking for porcini and found those they could be very angry.

:lol:

i will remember this technique this weekend on my hunt

i'm kind of excited because the person i am going with is from Siberia. 
mushroom foraging is a requirement to eat sometimes there, so i am excited to see what he points out as edibles

Probably a bunch of crazy crap that no one else eats.

I have hunted with Russians that take home baskets of Gomphidius and Russula.

I hunt a spot that if the Russian woman that also hunts the spot gets there first, she picks all the green and red Russulas and all the Boletes. Doesn't matter what they are. I can see all the green Russsulas, but all the Red? I'm like WTF? And she's smiling with her bag of mushrooms.

They'll just pickle it and if it acts up in their stomach they put it in its place with a quart of vodka. Seems to work amazingly well.
