Any ideas on this one??? PICS
    #1735956 - 07/21/03 07:55 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Came across it while searching the subb feild the other day. It was frowing on an old decaying pine log covered in moss. Quite a pretty site these two were! There was no noticeable smell, but I was kinda stuffed up that day, and there was no apparent brusing in the first 10 minutes(which is all the longer I held on to them) Stem was about 3/4 of an inch thick at the base, cap was around an inch and a half. The rest should be in the pics. Need more just ask...

Kinda has a similar appearance to a honey mushroom, but I've never seen any honeys' quite like these before.









LK,

how can you call those magic without an id or any brusing?
seems irresponsible to me

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

No, they are not magic. And yes, that is a rather irresponsible assumption.

I know, I should have taken them home and printed, but I left them there. I can only hope they re-appear sometime yet this year.


One more thing, I'm not sure if you can see it in the pics, but the mycelium at the very base of the stems has some purple color in it. I'm in no way saying these are active mushrooms(they arenot), as we all know active mushrooms stain blue not purple, just had to poin that out before I gt another reply like the one above. Its just a detail I forgot that may aid in identification.


I'll head back out there tommarow and see if I can find a few more and maybe get a few prints.

LK,

That's certainly one of the more interesting specimens out here recently.

Overall the appearance certainly suggests that it's an Armillaria. The lack of a ring would make it Armillaria tabescens, but those don't look like any I've ever seen. I suspect those are A. tabescens which have grown strangely due to some environmental effect. There is the remote possibility that they're an unnamed Armillaria species.

If you think there's a reasonable chance they're something really new, you should collect them. You might also try emailing photos to somebody like Tom Volk (who has studied Armillarias quite a bit) and see if they think there's something worth pursuing more.

Definitely a worthwhile post.

Happy mushrooming!

depends on your definition of "magic". i wouldn't tell anyone that anything was "active" from a pic, but i consider all mushrooms to be magic, personally, but then i differentiate between magic (as all living things are magical to me) and active.  at any rate, yes, we all need to be careful w/ quick assumptions as to the activity or edibility of mushrooms whether from pics or in the field, and these particular specimens are pretty damn cool indeed.  Volk seems to know his stuff, i find his page very informative.  And hey, if it's something new, perhaps you could have it named after you:  Amarillius Lizarkingius!  Woohoo!  :laugh:

those look beautiful and verry interesting.
i've never seen an Armillaria that looks like them, but it makes sense.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Well................... I don't believe it's a weilii. :noway:The color's not right. Neither are the gills. The stem doesn't fit the description either............hehehe......  :wink: Ok, I'm just being a smartass.
I does look like a ringless honey mushroom.
Could it possibly be a type of Entoloma,Gomphidius,Chroogomphus,or Lentinus? Just a thought.
Armillaria does seems like the best choice.

One thing's for sure, it does appear to be some type of mushroom.  :grin: :wink: :grin:

LK, don't forget to call me if there's a * twat* storm down your way............We can just stand outside,look up to the sky with our mouths open, and try to catch a few drops........ :lol:

doo

Well, I believe it is this guy:



Otherwise known as Pleurotus dryinus. I found mine this past weekend on the Connecticut coast, growing from a live oak tree.

Though the two look quite different, I was intrigued by the decurrent gills on yours, and the fact that in stature they look alot like P. eryngii. A picture in "Mushrooms of Northeastern NA" looks VERY much like yours, though it is hard to tell the cap color in the photo. Interestingly, this is the only species of Pleurotus that has a ring, at least in the button stage.

I picked mine, and am in the process of cloning it, and plan also to look at the spores under the scope, which are also supposed to be distictive, almost cyclindrical.

Let me know what you think, LK. And I can scan the pic, if needed.
