Purple bruising
    #1347159 - 03/02/03 04:44 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hi,
Went for a hunt on saturday in some paddocks and came across a whole lot of different kinds of mushrooms...alot of white ones with gills to match but also came across some fairly small golden brown ones with narrow brown gills. They were all fairly young it would seem....i took my camera with me but forgot to bring a disk so couldn't get some photos...I'll get some by next week. Anyway we bruised one of them and when we came back about 30 minutes later there was a small concentrated purple discolouration at the point which we broke the mushroom's 'skin'.....strange, or can this be interpreted as blue?

could you tell what color the spores were? Where are you located? More info needed for an ID

please read this thread.
purpple bruising is mot the same as blue. a psilocybian mushroom may appear to bruis purpple if the flesh of the mushroom is red to begin with, but i have never seen this happen before. i am not familiar with any purpple bruising mushrooms but i am sure someone else around here will be.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Typically mushrooms containing psilocybin bruise more of a blue-green color than a blue color. So, no, purple is not the same thing as blue.

Interesting. Purplish bruising is pretty unusual.

There are a number of Lactarius species which bruise a purplish color. Here in Colorado they are represented by Lactarius uvidus. Lactarius pallescens is apparently more common in California. You didn't mention if the caps were smooth or hairy, and Lactarius representaneus would be a hairy capped mushroom with the same characteristic. Note that all of the purplish staining Lactarius are poisonous and should not be eaten.


Another, relatively remote possibility also suggests itself:

Chroogomphus tomentosus will sometimes bruise purplish or wine colored.


If any of those match, then you got lucky. If not, give us a more detailed description and we'll see what we can do.

Happy mushrooming!

Hi,
I live on the south east coast of australia.....this was roughly two days after some fairly heavy rain, in the late afternoon. The cap was small and fairly smooth, pretty round. The purple discolouration was on a place where the skin had been cut a bit...was pretty dark for purple. The stalk of the mushroom was thin and white...the fungi itself looked quite small....probably 7 centimeters high max, with a one and a half or maybe two centimeter diameter cap
thanks for the help

The only thing slightly related to purple on a P. cubensis would be the spore color of the ring around the cap of the shroom.

I have in thirty years never seen a putrple cubensis, But blue, yes.

Chocolate to dark purple brown are the color of the spores in the Genus Psilocybe. Not the mushroom.

IF it had porous skin (not gills) Gills are not porous.

You probably had a Boletus.

It was just a tiny little spot of purple though which was the strange part....however it was distinctly purple, I wouldn't mistake it as blue but from what I gather as far as posts go, psilocin doesnt oxidise purple? We bruised the mushroom lightly on the cap, left it for a while and upon return we saw just a tiny little spot of purple that wasn't there before, maybe a quarter of the size of the bruise..

seems like there's alot of boletus around my way - I found one that someone said was a boletus which stained blue really quickly, I mean as soon as I tore it it stained blue and then sort of faded black over an hour or so.

cheers
