Backyard find
    #1722962 - 07/16/03 10:23 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I was in my backyard about a month ago...maybe longer i came across an odd looking mushroom. I took pictures of it because i thought it looked so cool......but with my luck, the damn disk i used isnt reading the pics i took. Im not sure what kind it was but maybe yall know.

It had a red cap...maybe about 2 inches across. Underneath it (gills??) were yellow and the instant i touched the gills, they turned blue. I mean the instant i did. It was pretty cool to watch, considering i was mighty high at the time. The stem was pretty sturdy. Like a branch of some sort. It was red and was bout half an inch think. I didnt take a spore print, so sorry about that. I just have never seen one like this and was wondering if any of yah knew more than i do on the subject.......since i know all of you do.

Some kind of Bolete. While there are a few edible(NOT ACTIVE!) bluing boletes, most of them are poisonous. You're better off tossing them out.
