ID'ing a shroom
    #1662741 - 06/25/03 10:31 PM (14 years, 7 days ago)

I've never ID'ed a shroom before. But I was walking along and i saw this big mushroom in the ground. I've never described a shroom before so i'm just gonna try. I found it in the grass, growing in the ground. It is a very pale white and sort of patchy light brown. It is still covered with some dirt, i have not washed it. The stem is about 7cm long and about 3.5cm in diameter. The cap was broken when i found it. Any information on it would really help.

I don't know how to make a spore print. The gills are a dark dark brown in some spots and medium light brown in other parts. The cap if I put the pieces together is fairly straight but with some waving. The cap is firm. The stem is full and solid. The whole mushroom is light brown/pale white. The texture of the stem is smooth and the cap is smooth but it is wavy. There is some more detail.

To make a spore print, cut the cap off from the stem. Put it, gill side down on a sheet of white paper. To protect it from drafts and get the humidity high, I put the whole thing inside a gallon ziploc bag. Let it sit undisturbed for a few hours. The spore print should be on the paper under where the cap was.

Happy mushrooming!

Does it sound anything like a hallucigonic mushroom? I don't even think it is "magic."

If you don't know what a "magic" mushroom looks like, the odds are against you to begin with. It probably isn't, but a spore print will help decide the issue pretty quickly.

Happy mushrooming!
