ID Help: Blue-green mushrooms & Blewits?
    #11676641 - 12/18/09 07:52 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I found both of these mushrooms in a park in Houston this afternoon.  I think the second mushroom is a wood blewit, but some confirmation would be good.

Habitat: In duff beneath pine trees.

Gills: Pale, but bruising to a reddish color.  Attached, I think.

Stem: Short.  Thick.  Slightly offset.

Cap: Dry, 3-5" across, rounded but with a kidney shape that reminds me of ash tree boletes.

Spore print color: I did not print it!

Bruising: This mushroom bruises RED.

Other information: Smelled mushroomy.










Habitat: In duff under some kind of hardwood that I am unable to identify.  Mushrooms grow linearly in small clusters.

Gills: Pale violet, crowded, trippy.

Stem: Short, solid, somewhat swollen at the base with violet mycelium attached.

Cap: Violet, up to 6" across, convex, fading and flattening out with maturity.

Spore print color: I've got a little bit of a print so far, and it looks pale on foil.

Bruising: No bruising.

Other information: The scent is sweet and somewhat fruity, but not as strong as the Clitocybe tarda mushrooms I found in yards last spring.

The pictures of blewits in my Texas field guide look pretty much exactly like them.  Sweet!  I saved all of the stem butts for transfer to cardboard.  Ironically, I just bought a blewit culture.

Thanks for the confirmation.  I'll be sure to post here if my liver turns to mush! :laugh:

I could have sent your Blewit spores for free.:smirk:

Nice find! I've been finding a lot of Blewits this year.

This was my first season getting familiar with Blewits.  They smell like grapes to me and I could never figure out their place in the kitchen.  Love that smell though.
