    #1824993 - 08/18/03 03:50 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

most likely completely wrong but i think it might be a hygrophoropsis aurantiaca. here are some pics and some notes...



cap: orange, ~9cm across (this was a medium sized one of the group), flexible edges; more firm in center, greasy, shaped like a loose M (/\/\ round those angles off)
stem: orange, 6cm x 2cm, tough, meaty, thin at base then swells in middle then thins again near cap, curved
gills: orange, close, forked, attached (actually go down the stem a bit)
spores: making spore print...will update
habitat norhteast MA, found in lawn under conifers in a cluster

My book says edible with caution. Not very digiestible. Maybe better going in then out? haha It was once thought to be poisonous. Take caution as always!

I would be very cautious about eating those!

They look an awful lot like Omphalotus illudens, the very nasty poisonous Jack O'Lantern mushroom.

In any event, Hygrophoropsis aurantiacum is strongly not recommended for eating.

So, either way, you really shouldn't eat those.

Nice specimens and photos.

Happy mushrooming!
