Unable to Identify
    #11413369 - 11/08/09 09:00 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Hello everyone,
I found this cluster of mushrooms among many others in my back yard on the dead roots of an old tree stump earlier in the day. I've searched for various types of wood loving mushrooms and their descriptions, but i can't quite figure this one out. I think it is closest to resembling the Gymnopilus sp. but I could be completely wrong. I am wondering if it is merely a poisonous look-alike. When bruised, its color changes to just a slightly darker shade. And also, it is very odd to me that it Does Not produce any sign of a spore print after placing it on white paper and under a cup for 30-60min. I am currently testing it on black paper to see if the spore print is white.

If anyone has a clue as to what type of mushroom I am dealing with at the moment I would be very appreciative to hear them... i don't wanna die from eating these lol.

Just hoping to find some answers! :smile:

Looks like Armillaria, maybe armillaria tabescens. Look for white spores on dark paper after several hours.

okay, now i tried finding a spore print using dark paper. It did come up white! :smile: So, it must be an armillaria tabescens? are those poisonous? or edible? possibly psychedelic?

Armillaria tabescens is considered a good edible, but I have not tried it myself.

Armillaria taxonomy is in flux right now, but collections of some kinds of honey mushrooms have been reported to cause mild gastric problems. You might want to do a little research on Armillaria before decideing whether or not to try them.

The photo on the right looks to have remnants of an annulus, which is uncharactoristic of Armillaria tabescens.

come together

Okay great! Thanks so much for the help. I'll do some more research on this. I'm most likely not going to eat them just to stay safe, unless I can identify it 100% and I become that hungry, because from what I've read they do not contain any psychoactive components.

Again, I appreciate all the help! :smile:

Looks like some kind of lactarius. Break off a bit and see if it bleeds a white latex.
