ID requests on five different mushrooms
    #11414608 - 11/08/09 11:46 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Thanks in advance for all the help! I have a few different mushrooms that I have not been able to identify. I'm pretty sure that all, except maybe the first, aren't active but if anyone can help with the identity that would still help satisfy my thirst of curiosity.

Mushy #1

Habitat:
Coniferous woods, on the ground (but I could be wrong about the ground; I found so many yesterday that I can't keep them all straight! Next time I'll take better records).

Gills:
Cinnamon colored, attached slightly (the mushroom is small and I'm inexperienced thus my perception of its attachedness is iffy), close gills.

Stem:
1.5" long, 1/16"-1/8" diameter, white

Cap:
1/2", yellow/brown, moist, spherical, convex

Spore print color:
Cinnamon brown

Bruising:
Might have bruised a darkish color but I'm iffy on that. It wasn't obviously blue like some boletes I've seen.

Mushy #2


Are these two pictures even two different mushrooms? Notice the white ring on the flared edges of the caps of the second picture.

Habitat:
Coniferous woods, on the ground

Gills:
Dark brown, attached slightly, close to slightly further spaced gills.

Stem:
4" long, 1/16"-1/8" diameter, dirty white.

Cap:
1/2" - 1", brown, dry, spherical, convex

Spore print color:
Unfortunately this one didn't seem to spore print for me (unless it was white because I forgot to put it on dark paper as well); I think it's because it was being devoured by bugs.

Bruising:
No apparent bruising effect.

Mushy #3



These mushrooms were, as far as my inexperienced eyes could tell, the same as the previous except for color differences in the cap. Is this usual variation among the same species or would this be a significant sign of a different species? I got a spore print on this species: purple-black

Habitat:
Coniferous woods, on the ground

Gills:
Dark brown, attached slightly, close to slightly further spaced gills.

Stem:
4" long, 1/16"-1/8" diameter, dirty white.

Cap:
1/2" - 1", brown with some discolorations, dry, spherical, convex

Spore print color:
Purple-black.

Bruising:
No apparent bruising effect.

Mushy #4




Habitat:
Coniferous woods on mulch and in grass but also among a lot of oak and rhododendron leafage. Grows on the ground

Gills:
White or light tan, attached slightly, (you guys should be able to clearly see what I'm calling "slightly attached" in these photos; what would you guys call it?), distantly spaced gills.

Stem:
2-4" long, 1/16"-1/8" diameter, brown/light-brown.

Cap:
1/4" - 1/2", light-brown on top turning even lighter, almost white, on the edges, dry, conical with a nipple, convex

Spore print color:
Alas, I have yet to get a spore print on these. Please forgive me.

Bruising:
No apparent bruising effect.

Mushy #5



Note that, again, this species is similar to the previous except coloring. I see a ton of the previous mushroom but I only saw about three of these and they seemed significantly more yellow. Also note that one of these three is the only mushroom looking like these that I have seen growing on dead wood.

Habitat:
Coniferous woods on mulch. Grows on the ground and on mossy, dead wood.

Gills:
Light-brown/yellowish, attached slightly, distantly spaced gills.

Stem:
2" long, 1/16"-1/8" diameter, light brown/yellowish.

Cap:
1/2", light-brown on top turning even lighter, yellower color on the edges, dry, conical, convex

Spore print color:
Alas, I have yet to get a spore print on these. Please forgive me.

Bruising:
No apparent bruising effect.


I am tremendously appreciative for all your help.

Conrad

Do you happen to know the species? (You just gave genera, correct?)

What identifies #1 and #5 as Galerina? They seem very different to me. The last seems more like a Mycena than anything else. #1 is very rounded while #5 is very conical. Not to mention the moistness of the first cap with the second one dry. Just trying to learn. [edit] OK, I did some more homework and maybe you were thinking of Deadly Galerina for #1 and Sphagnum-bog Galerina for the #5?

OK, so what separates the Mycena from the Sphagnum-bog Galerina? Like I said in my post they look very similar. What species of Mycena were you thinking? Maybe a spore print would help me differentiate?

Correct.

Brown, small, orange-ish, growing on moss, doesn't quite look like Tubaria.

They might be different species of Galerina.  They might not even be Galerina.  I think they are though.

Quote:

There are a lot of mycenoid Galerina that grow in moss.  Maybe something close to Galerina vittaeformis.

Yea.

Quote:

Spore print color.  In the field, check the gill color and odor, many Mycena smell like bleach.
