Another Possible Gymno Find
    #1820796 - 08/16/03 08:35 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I found this small cluster growing from a large mound of woodchips. No noticeable bluing like the last bunch, and this group is much smaller as well. However I think in appearance they seem to be identical to the g. spectabilis I found the other day. They give off an orangish sporeprint.

This is the picture of the positively identified g. spectabilis. How do you think they compare?

Hi, in your second picture it looks a little like the cap has some Purple on it??

Gymno's can be real tricky to ID. But if the cap has some purple on it then i would start researching towards G. luteofolius. There are also a few other species of Gymnopilus which have purple on the caps. The appearance of the luteofolius i find (frequently) at some patches seem to have strange variations (possibly seperate species) but some of them have the purple (which narrows the identification down easily) and also the tendancy to have bluish mycelium at the base of the stems and also bluish splotches on the purple caps(but not all of them have blue or purple)..

What kind of wood did you find them on?

Ah i see, you found them on woodchips..

You might need to find more mushrooms, because like i said, luteofolius tends to vary some...but they do look quite similar to what i find on the woodchips.

Here are some of my lutes (and these ones are more robust and the more purple and bluish of one of my last collections, not all of them are purple or have blue)



And from a different location than above;

I heard that those are notoriously bitter.

Actually I did not notice any purple on the caps, but I will have a second look. There were only these 4 mushrooms that were in decent shape, and a lot of partially decaying mushrooms on the stack. Would you say they are definately some kind of gym?

Yes Ladle2! You have found a Gymnopilus!

Most Gymno's are heavy spore producers, you probably don't even need to do a spore print to find out what color the prints are, you could probably just touch all the gills of the mushrooms and your fingers will have orange. Or wipe the gills on a white cloth, Gymnos are heavy spore producers.

Definately Gymno's, probably very close to being a luteofolius but we cannot be sure yet.

That cap in the second picture looks a tint of purple/yellow to me. Like i said, they vary quite a bit, and in about half of the luteofolius patches i have come across the caps do not have any purple on them and they are more just yellow and orange (a mix of both forms yellow/orange caps and the purple/yellow caps). I believe that the psychoactivity is most concentrated in the purplish caps, and of course when they have blue on them. A strange blue though, not quite like Psilocybes or Copelandia (because they do not readily blue, they are already blued when in the ground before you pick them and then no furthur bluing afterwards.).

Keep looking in the same type of decaying mulch beds, the same type of woodchips. They prefer the woodchips that were laid down oh maybe after 6 months, never really from freshly laid chips. My guess is that you guys have more Gymns that you think in GA,, become familiar with how the woodchips look in the places that you do find them, so then you can spot a potential Gymno patch in the woodchips with easier chances of finding them, compare freshly laid chips to the ones where you find the Gymns in.

The two pics that i put up are examples of extremely purple caps.

Keep shroomin,
GG

GG: i can see the purple also and would have to concur.
Ladle: good score.

Thanks for the help so far. When you talk about the purple in the second picture, are you talking about the second picture in the set of 5, or the picture in my first reply to this? If you are talking about the picture in my first reply, this is from a different patch found a few days ago... see my thread "I think I've got a Gymnopilus here...."

Both patches were found growing from wood chips. The series of 5 pictures are very small compared to the big ones found the other day.
