Another Indentification (PICS) Weird one
    #1675413 - 07/01/03 12:09 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

While looking for the Boletus, I found this little guy.

As I said the earlier thread, after I picked these and was waiting on a spore print from the Boletus, it began raining and the wind began blowing. I was mainly interested in saving my camera, so I was not able to save this mushroom for measurements and such.

I was able to give it a small sqeeze and brown, nearly cinnamon colored spores came from it, and ALOT OF THEM! It was pretty cool.

Growing within 24 inches of an oak tree. This was the only one. It was off white to yellow (Just a yellow tint) and covered with brown spots. It already had the hole in the top when I found it. Completely dry. I would guess it was about 2.5 - 3 centimeters across, with only a nub of a stem.

It had none. The bottom looked just like the top except for less brown spots and a nub of a stem. Truthfully it wasn't like any mushrooms I have seen before, I'm not sure this would even be classified as a mushroom.

It was basically just a small "bag". That is the closest thing I can think of to describe it. Spores just shot out of it when it was sqeezed.

So these still form mycellium just like mushrooms, don't they?  Interesting little fellows. 

Thank you both for your help. :laugh:

Oh, I had another question, are there any mushrooms that are dangerous to even handle?

I just did a search and looked at other pics I could find of this species, and they just don't look the same to me. The one I found was very smooth, without the bumps like those had.

Did I just get it in a different stage of growth?

I don?t think that is a mushroom at all. I have these things in my yard and they fall from trees. They are hollow and "hard". They have a "stem" spot (visible in pic). I don?t know what tree they fall from as I am worthless at identifying trees. I may be wrong but I?m betting we have the same thing here. When opened they release a cloud of what appears to be spores. They are generally golf-ball sized.


edit: In retrospect I can see that what you have there is one of these. i seriously doubt this to be a mushroom as it has roots and foliage (foliage visible in pic). That paw belongs to a Jack Russell to give you an size perspective.

No it is a puff ball, very simular looking to that tree fruit though i must say.
But you can see its stem and spore opening in the first pictures, and
i bet if he squeesed it lightly it would shot out a puff of spores :-)

Not the same as the puffballs growing in my area, but the same
family i would guess.

Sorry missed this bit

I've read somewhere, I think it was in the golden guide of hallucinogenic plants and fungi, that some puff balls where active. Toxicman? Mr. Mushroom? Ever hear of these? If I can find it I'll post an excerpt. Supposedly it cause auditory distortions and stuff like that.

here we go, you can find it here.

Quote:

PUFFBALLS (Lycoperdon mixtecorum and L. marginotum) are used by the Mixtec Indicins Of Oaxaca, Mexico as auditory hallucinogens. After eating these fungi, a native hears voices and echoes. There is apparently no ceremony connected with puffballs, and they do not enjoy the place as divinatory agents that the mushrooms do in Oaxaca. L. mixtecorum is the stronger of the two. It is called gi-i-wa, meaning ''fungus of the first quality." L. marginatum, which has a strong odor of excrement is known as gi-i-sa-wa, meaning ''fungus of the second quality.


?? Although intoxicating substances have not yet been found in the puffballs, there are reports in the literature that some of them have had narcotic effects when eaten. Most of the estimated 50 to 100 species of Lycoperdon grow in mossy forests of the temperate zone. They belong to the Lycoperdaceae, a family of the Gasteromycetes.

Yes the soil was very rich in wood.  Mulch was nearby.

I can definately see why it has that name! :smile:

gdman420, that is very interesting.  Where are those species indigenous to?
