strange mushrooms (pics)
    #1760570 - 07/29/03 08:21 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

These are some pics of some mushrooms I found while hiking.


this next one was huge and very strange



Does anyone know what any of these are? or if they are edible?
oh and these were found in the north east part of the U.S

that first one is an Aminita. can you give any details about the volva [formation at the base of the stipe]?

any additional info you can provide [size, smell, ect...] will be helpful.

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.

Nice finds.

The first one is an Amanita. There are a ton of pale tan capped Amanitas, and lots of them are poisonous, most of them are unknown. Definitely do not eat! Identification to species is difficult because there are so many of them. Did you pick it so you can answer questions about it?

The second one is a bolete. Again, to identify it to species we need to know more. Did you pick it?

The last ones look like Cantharrellus cinnabarinus, the Cinnabar Red Chanterelle. If so, they're choice edibles. Again, did you pick them? If so, then a little information will confirm that they are.

Happy mushrooming!

A. flavoconia is similar except it is yellow where A. muscaria is white, including patches. A. frostiana has a red cap and white patches but i believe the stem and gills are yellowish. this is what i have read in Common Mushrooms in Florida.

I didn't pick any of them. I left them for the next hiker to enjoy :smile:
I'm going to the library tomorrow to see if I can find a mushroom field guide. I'll let you know I figure them out.
here is another picture of those ultra bright floresent orange mushrooms.

also check this out. It might be a bit sick I know but these beetles, ants, and flies were going to town on this dead mouse.

And this one, this poor turtle is getting swarmed by mosqitoes, but I doubt they can get through his armoured skin.

Next time you find them, you should definitely pick lots of the bright red ones. Those are one of the better edible mushrooms there is.

The thing you should verify (that I can't see in the photos) is that the gills should actually be fairly blunt and crossveined, not like normal gills.

There's some good information on them here.

Happy mushrooming!

Ok I went to the library yesterday and found several excellent mushroom field guides. The 1st mushroom is definetly some type of amanita, probably a yelloe spotted amanita which is poisonous. The 2nd mushroom is a spotted Bolete (boletus affinis) which is surpizingly edible, considering how ugly it is.
And the 3rd like several people mentioned is red chanterelle(cantharellus cinnaborinus) which is also edible.

Glad to see you looking them up in a book. You'll learn a lot about other mushrooms as well while doing that.

The yellowish Amanitas are tougher to ID than most field guides let on. Without verifying with a microscope I wouldn't be confident of most Amanita IDs of those yellow capped guys.

What book did you verify the bolete with? Things you need to verify bolete ID include spore print color and how fast they bruise blue. Lots of boletes are very edible. Some of my favorite mushrooms for eating are boletes.

Happy mushrooming!
