Graveyard Hunting. (NEW PICs /with prints)
    #1799449 - 08/10/03 09:52 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Went to a new spot today, it was a mossy shaded area about the size of a football field. There were gravestones dating back over 100 years.
Only one problem, there was a smudge on my lens the whole time!  :shake:
To give you an idea they were all found in this fully shaded mossy area.


We found over 30 different species, too many pics to post!

1.
Boletus bicolor, Two-Colored Bolete
This mushroom slowly bruises blue then fades.
It has bright yellow pores, and a very fleshy cap.
Spore print was pale olive green.
Well I ate some on top of tonights meatloaf. :grin:
I prepared them by in butter with fresh garlic, sage, salt, pepper, and paprika. :smile:
Truly a choice edible, right up there with Morels.

2.
Clavulina amethystina, Violet Branched Coral
These are simply beautiful! I tried to figure out the smell. I guess I would say they smell like pussy!  :grin:

3.

I am very curious about these guys. Really cool looking.
The cap is smooth and convex. No noticeable smell.
They have close gills and a white spore print, they bruise light brown.

4.
No luck IDing these. I thought maybe Hard's Stropharia?
Spore print was light brown.

5.
Slightly fuzzy stem, dark brown gills. Black spore print.

6.
Patches and clusters of these everywhere!
White spore print.
Not sure.. some type of mycena?

7.
My guess is  Clavaria vermicularis, Worm-Like Coral
Edible.. any thoughts?  :tongue2:

8.
Lots of different boletes. This one has a strong mushroomy smell.
The largest one I found today. The cap was 4 inches in diameter.
It bruises blue instantly.

9.
Boletus subvelutipes, Red-mouth Bolete
This bolete had a velvety top and orangish pores.
They stain dark blue instantly then it fades to grey.
Spore print dark olive green.

10.
Yet another bolete, at first glance I thought these might be Gymnopolis.
Brown hollow fleshy stalk. Pores are white.No bruising. They had an almost creamy sweet odor. Spore print turned out to be pinkish beige.

11.
A russula of some type. No print yet.

12.
Never seen anything like this, could it be a forming earthstar?

13.
No clue on these. Did not get a print either.

14.

Same species as #6 which interested you ToxicMan.

15.
Very fragile, bell shaped cap. No spore print.  :oogle:

16.
Slimy and sticky. Wasnt able to get a visible print. Any tips on printing these sticky type mushrooms?

ID help is encouraged! :wink:
Thats all for now. .  :sun:

ehh
thats kinda creepy, but besides that
the second to last is the king bolete- im 99% sure
(edit: looking more closely, those are realllly nice specimens imo.. aaah.. looking at them makes me hungry)
4th to last is likely a xerocomus- i cant really be more specific from the top of my head ..
pretty nice though

Very nice stuff. I need to smudge my lens. :grin:

Considering the other IDs you did of these, I'm surprised you didn't get the genus for #3. It's another Russula. Of course, IDing to species pretty much requires a microscope. In general, the Russulas that bruise (especially red or black) should be avoided.

With #4, I would probably start with one of the pale spored genera until a spore print shows it isn't. The overall stature suggests Tricholoma.

#5 looks like a Psathyrella. It's similar to Psathyrella velutina in that photo.

#6 is very striking. I haven't seen any quite like those. I'd probably start with Hygrophorus for an ID.

#7 I think you have correct. Most corals don't have a lot of flavor. They tend to make nice accents in a dish. Also, many corals tend to cause mild diarrhea if you eat too much, so don't overeat.

#8 matches the description of Boletus sensibilis (which is poisonous) too closely to eat. The rapid blueing is not a good character for edibility.

On #10 you should get a spore print. They could be Boletus or Tylopilus. Also, on boletes you need to note if the stalk is reticulate (especially look at the top third). Another thing to consider is tasting them. The bitter and peppery ones let you know right away, and that helps the IDs along quite a bit with those species.

Great stuff!

Happy mushrooming!

Thank you TM. So the IDs I had were correct you think?
On the tasting I am a little weary because Im a newb. :wink:
What is a good size to eat? I think I read it was a 1/4 X 1/4 inch square.
Can any species kill or make you sick at this dose?

hrm, you sure bout 10?
the creamy smell is a good indicator ..Those look like good european king boletes ( then again, maybe im mistranslating from my polish to my english, and this is in fact not whats called a king bolete here? hmm )

and 7, thanks for clearing that up, i looked into it some more and the xerocomus subtomentosus i was thinking of has a different cap and less reddening..

Yeah, I think you did a pretty good job on the IDs you did.

As far as how much to eat, it should be a small amount. The only actual measurement I've heard mentioned is that it needs to be less than a teaspoon, raw. If what you're sampling is poisonous, you're still going to get sick. The idea is to make it so that you're less sick. I don't think any of the deadly species are that poisonous, but you should never taste any mushroom that could be deadly.

Morrowind, I'm fairly unsure of what #10 is yet. Certainly Boletus edulis is a possibility, although most of them I find have very nearly white stems, and they are usually more bulbous than those. Getting a spore print and examining the stem for reticulation will help to confirm an ID. I know people here who refer to Boletus edulis as King Boletes - that's a fairly widespread name.

Happy mushrooming!

Okay.. Im examaning the stalk looking for reticulation.
Not quite sure what that is though. :wink:

i looked it up and it said:
To make a net or network of.
To mark with lines resembling a network

So I am looking for a visible fiberous like network close to the cap? I think I am seeing that.

The word reticulation comes from the Latin reticulum which means net.

If the stem has reticulation, it means that the surface looks sort of like a very fine net.

angry took a photo which is in the FAQ which shows it well:


Often reticulation is more difficult to see than that. Having the light at a low angle will help to show it better.

Happy mushrooming!

#10 looks exactly like the ones I found today !!
I took some pictures of them with my camera, but I'll have to wait a few days before posting them.

By the way, the cap of a mushroom like yours was very wet and left a residue on my finger...
