identification help?
    #1624389 - 06/10/03 08:38 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I found these near my school, growing in a pile of mixed hay and woodchips. the left mushroom has a spore print on it because they grew very close to eachother.

here is the bottem, the spore print came out to be dark brown to black/purpeish. It grew in maine, near the center, in Durham. oak trees and pine trees grew around the mushrooms, at the edge of a blueberry field

Three questions: is the cap margin stiate, are the gills adnexed or are they slightly decurrent, and are you sure the spore print is that color and not rusty brown etc?

from the look of the stained cap, it look like the spore print is reddish or brownish.

from the color spore print you specified i couldnt find anything.

I took a proper spore print overnight, and it does look brown/rust brown, although i'm having problems uploading this pic.
the gils are adnexed and the cap margin is striated
i can't seem to find it in my Mushrooms of north America book, it's realy got me stumped. thanks for the help

is there any chance the mushrooms could have been growing on wood (possibly burried), also is the cap slightly powdery and how large are the caps in diameter and how tall is the mushroom?

one more thing, have you found this specimen ever before around your area or recently?

if you have mushrooms demystified by aurora, then go to cortinariaceae on pg 396, that is what family it keyed out to be according to your description.

Given the rusty brown spore print color and strongly hygrophanous cap, I would guess that those are Cortinarius, subgenus Telamonia. The bad news is that there are probably only a few people in the world who could identify one of those to species. None of them should be eaten, none are active.

There are other possibilities, but that's the most likely.

Happy mushrooming!
