High I am relatively new to mushroom hunting and have a question. I have seen many pictures of Weilii and it looks different all the time. I realize that spore prints etc are used to verify. I was just wondering from a field glance if it resembles Pholliotina filaris or any other deadly mushroom . Any comments would be appreciated
There are a few look alikes out there, but it's probably one of the easiest mushrooms to identify. Once you find one, you'll always know when you see more. The smell is the thing that always confirms it for me.
Easiest way to be sure it's a weilii:
If it doesn't briuse blue within 10 minutes, it's not a weilii.
Spore prints are purple brown.
Smell is unmistakeable.
It's really very easy to identify. Just remember, if it doesn't briuse blue, it's not a weilii
Pholiotina filaris is no longer and has not been since the late 1970s uirt is now known as Conocybe filaris. There is a picture of this mushroom on my site in the poisonous section of my Species Id section on my site at:
