Cave mushrooms
    #1262713 - 01/30/03 06:09 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I was exploring a local cave and found some very interesting white mushrooms. I tried to get a spore print but they dropped all the spores I guess ? all the mushrooms are tiny, white caps, white gills, white stems that are very skinny. they were growing on pine cones and other wood materials that found there way into the entrance of the cave.... the elevation is about 5000 feet area is North Eastern California.. sorry for no pics :frown:   

I understand if noone knows what these are because I don't have enough info....

Actually, the statement that they were growing from pine cones is pretty significant. To get the exact species we generally need to know what kind of pine cones (Douglas Fir, Sitka Spruce,...).

calishroomer is on the right track when he suggests Strobilurus conigenoides, but that species is listed in my references as being specific to magnolia.

Given that you describe them as being entirely white I would tend to guess Strobilurus trullisatus which primarily grows on Douglas Fir cones.

Happy mushrooming!
