Need help with i.d. please
    #1659035 - 06/24/03 06:38 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Well it's been dry for the last week or so here in west Texas.  But were supposed to get a good shower on thursday.  I was out strolling and decided to take some pics of these mushrooms that have had me puzzled.  If anyone has a clue about these be my guest.  This is afterall a pretty dry climate.

These first two pics im not really worried about I.D.

:laugh: Natural habitat.


:laugh: Broke this one apart for yall.

Okay now here we have a teaser.  I have found this next one in cental oklahoma growing specifically in horse manure, so I was suprised to see it growing in west texas in such a dry enviroment and in hay.

DESCRIPTION:  White stalk, hollow and fiberous.  cream colored to yellow dot in middle of cap fading to dark grey or black.  Grey gills.  I have found them with a slimy coating as in the post made today about slimyness.  Now I know this might sound crazy coming from a newbie and all but once dried these baby's smell like some high quality hydro grown shrooms I've ate before and yes I read the f.a.q. but I had to nibble on one you see , just a taste and they have the coolest metallic tatse.  I can see the ribbing now about that one.  lol 

I know this picture sucks and I am after an I.D. so I am going to wet the area down tonight and see what pops up tomorrow.  If that does nothing I'll just have to wait till thursday night or friday morning after it rains.  Then I'll add some better pics and a pic of a spore print.  I really want to know what this one is.  The ones up top I just put for amusement of fellow shroomers.    Thx    :mushroom2:Indio :mushroom2:


Okay I know this sucks cause it's dried up, but that's all I had to work with today.  Sorry Ya'll I'll post better pics this week in this thread.



Alright I just threw this in to show thier habitat and to note how dry this patch of hay is.  The funny thing is that they can sit all dried up like this and the first bit of moisture gets em popin.  I do want to add that they melt away quickly after poppin.

You sure those have gills? They look like pores in the pic.

Take time to read the whole post and you would see the description is for the bottom pics!

I did, that's why it didn't make sense to me, it said gills and it looked like pores, must be the light

Your mystery mushroom is probably some type of Coprinus. We really need to see it when it's relatively young to identify it.

You can taste a mushroom (that's often an important thing to do), the thing is to not swallow any.

Happy mushrooming!

Okay, Let me explain. The description and taste test was made on the mushroom in the lower pic before the cap shriveld up and turned black.

I did not taste the one in the top pic.

As I said before I'll have some better pics of the shroom in the lower picture later today.

I don't think so. According to my references, the typical lethal dose of amatoxins is about 6-7 mg. In quantitative studies, the concentration of alpha-amanitin in Amanita phalloides varied from 0.5 to 1.5 mg/g of mushroom, and the average cap size was 60g (nice big caps! - I would probably have guessed about 6g - maybe it's a typo).

If we make the taste size 1g (for convenience of calculation), then you would receive a dosage of (average) about a milligram. That's below the lethal dosage, but I'd be surprised if you didn't get sick from it.

And, of course, all that makes the assumption that you're stupid enough to actually swallow when you taste mushrooms. If you spit it all out, the dosage should drop considerably, and you probably wouldn't get sick.

On the other hand, I have heard of a case of a person becoming sick from tasting Russulas. Apparently they tasted a lot of them.


The recommendation I've heard from several professional mycologists is that you should not taste any mushroom suspected of being strongly poisonous. I sure wouldn't want to risk the buildup of some of those toxins from indiscriminate tasting.

Happy mushrooming!

Okay people here are the pics I promised.


This is the mushroom that I was describing in my initial post (see pic of mushroom on my knee up top) Any hints?

These next few pics are just random shrooms I found here in west Texas. I dont know what they are yet and I'm too tired to really describe em now, just thought people might like pretty pictures. ENJOY!!


This dude was slimy on the cap and soon melted away as the morning passsed.



This one had a pink nipple on the top. Like a tittie!


These two were all by themselves. I have not found any more like them.


And finally, these six were just chillin till I picked em. They had brown gills and a musty smell. Hollow stalk and a dark brown nipple on the cap.

And let me add, none of these appeared to be active, no bluing on shroom or mycellium.

Hope you enjoy nature!!
