FLA finds with pics: boletaceae and lepiota
    #1613194 - 06/05/03 11:54 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

check out these pictures of one boletaceae (im too exhausted to thoroughly attempt an id. i was looking at gastroboletus because it was so disfigured, grew half underground, and couldnt get a spore print the whole day. but it doesnt match because the tubes are fairly ordered. it is almost perfect for a Gb. subalpinus but the habitat doesnt match tremendously (subalpinus grows in high elevations in sierra nevada and sometimes cali and europe). also it bruises brown and Gb. subalpinus does not bruise. other Gastroboletus sp. bruise blue, not sure about brown.

the beatiful, but dirt covered lepiota is of course Lepiota lutea (formerly Leucocoprinus luteus). it was growing in rich garden like soil on the other side of the fence of a residence on the other side of the sidewalk from a busy street.







tadah!

Currently the "official" name for the Lepiota is Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, which could, of course, change yet again at any time.

Interesting bolete. If you want to do bolete identification, I'd recommend you get a copy of North American Boletes by Bessette, Roody, and Bessette. I don't have a copy yet, but it's high on my list of books to get next. He's got species in there that aren't described in any other book yet. My current best references are Mushrooms Demystified and Mushrooms of Northeastern North America. The link is a copy of the one from the Shroomery bookstore.

Nice photos. Your photography skill is improving rapidly.

Happy mushrooming!

thanks, hehe, i will need a better camera though.

i already have 'mushrooms demystified.' and i didnt get a spore print overnight with the boletaceae so im gonna go with Gastroboletus sp. because of that and the other characteristics i listed in the original post.

in the book it keyed out to be a gastroboletus because of that, but i could not key out that the sp. from there. it looked to be a G. subalpinus in all aspects but the habitat and brown-bruising.

i need a break my friends. chill pill for me.

thanks for the official name although when i look at that mushie i think Lepiota right away.

Here's a useful trick for field identification.

Often there's a spore deposit on the stem of the mushroom, or on something under the mushroom when you find it. With mushrooms that grow in clusters you can often find a spore print from one mushroom on the cap of another.


Yeah, you can see why they were originally in Lepiota. If you look at it as a white-spored Coprinus then you can also see why Leucocoprinus. It's similar to the way we got Leucoagaricus, which was also split off from Lepiota.


Happy mushrooming!

  ********************BREAKING NEWS**********************

the Leucocoprinus was somewhat small and fragile for a L. birnbaumii (i liked the old name better). in "Common Florida Mushrooms" by Kimbrough, L. fragillisimus is listed under the former as a smaller and more fragile species. i believe that is what i had found because they appeared small and fragile. there are probably microscopic differences but WHAT GIVES!? :wink: the name sounds cooler too... :grin:
