Habitat: northern pa, growing on decomposed wood chips
Gills:
the gills started as white to pink, and after a day of drying have become more brown or tan

Stem:
about 7.6 cm long, 2.5 cm wide. Has also gone from white to tan. Stringy consistency when pulled apart

Cap:
16 cm diameter, flat to concave. Smaller ones were convex

Spore print color:
Pinkish/tan


Bruising: no brusing effects that I can see

Other information: The mushroom has a mild scent, fairly pleasant. The cap is darker in the center. Hoping it's Plateus, but probably mistaken (full on noob)

Maybe pluteus petasatus. That thing is huge. wait for someone who knows better though. If it is though it's quite a good edible.

Thanks for a guess anyways man. There were plenty more of equal size around it as well. Some smaller and rounder though.

Could you take some better pics of the gill attachment and maybe some photos of the younger ones. Pic of your spore print too if possible?

Those gills are attached to the stem which rules out Pluteus. My guess would be Clitocybe or something close.

Ah, alright thank you. I had a fruitful day of hunting today and will be adding my finds tomorrow after I get the spore prints. Hopeful that one species is active. Thanks again.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

You know, I believe you're right. The out of whack color of his photos are what threw the wrench in my spokes. :drunk:

I live in the same area and I would definitely have to agree with canid, Blewits.

I found some a couple weeks back and fried them up in some butter with onions, they tasted great - very meaty.

If you find them fresh they usually have a very purplish color.  When I printed it, it was exactly as your's is.  Pinkish to pinkish buff.

Did the younger ones have the lilac color?  Also, look for an in-rolled margin in the younger ones.  Also, did you check for latex?  I think they have a white latex when cut under the gills.

Good luck, should get a definite ID soon :]

aqua: blewits do not have latex. you're thinking of milkies [the Lactarius] on that count. otherwise, that's just about right.

don't forget the smell. the aroma of fresh, young blewits is almost unmistakable. i liken it to fruity pebbles cereal.

These mushrooms didn't have a very unique scent. Very basic "mushroomy" scent.

Thanks Canid.  Yeah I've read that blewits are one of the best beginner mushrooms to search for because there aren't many that look similar, except for maybe Cortinarius alboviolaceus and a few purple mushrooms.  I think the Milkys you were talking about being one of those.

Wait, I was just reading this page ( http://leslieland.com/blog/2008/10/the-mushrooms-of-autumn-blewits/ ) and came across this.

"Like all Corts, alboviolaceus will produce a rusty-brown spore print. Lepista nuda will produce a pinkish-buff to lavender spore print. In mature Corts, the spores can often be seen collected on the collapsed cortina as a rusty-brown powder."

I would recheck before you ID OP, even though I ate some blewits and printed one and it came out that color, the fact that Corts have a rusty-brown spore print, which is what you referred to it as, worries me.

Please shroom responsibly. :laugh:

P.S. Kylenaut -The ones I picked did have a very mushroomy fragrance when I picked them, but I beleive that was because they were just a little past their prime.  I think they only exhibit the scent canid spoke of when very fresh.  Good luck!

I'm thinking you're right candid or at least with the color of the spores, they look rusty brown to me but it's probably the lighting. They are probably just really mature and really big lepista nuda. But it's still is missing that striking violet color, another lepsita is more whitish at first and then brownish flesh colored, lepsita irina.

here are some pictures to cross reference with Kyle....
