mush ID request
    #1848608 - 08/25/03 04:35 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Before anyone says anything, I am NOT planning on eating these particular specimens. I just want to know what species is in this spot in case of future flushes. Two full shrooms and the partial cap of an older one.

a. This is Northern Ohio, these shrooms were found under a rose bush near a decaying stump.
b. Gills yellow (is that natural, or some kind of mold?) turning brown after sporulation. Gills are pores, I can't tell what kind of attachment.
c. Cap on the big one would have been 4-5 cm, young one just 1.5 cm. Stems 4 cm or more.
d. Stem smooth, appears brown but that may just be dirt/spores stuck to it. Yellow at top like the gills. White flesh underneath when scratched open. Stem appears solid, but I only had a young stem to break open.
e. Same color characteristics as stem described above. Smooth surface. Semi-spherical when young, flattening out a bit to convex with age.
f. Brown, doesn't seem to be the purplish brown like a cubensis.
g. Very bright and quick blueing reaction, shown in the third pic!
h. Not a strong scent, just like a cubensis or common grocery-store shroom.

whole9 has it correct that your specimens are a bolete.

Nice description, but we need to know a few more things to get to the species.

Bruise the tubes (where they're yellow), and let us know if they bruise blue (or green) within 30 seconds.

Look closely at the top of the stem. Is there a set of very fine ridges there in a pattern like a net?

Let us know.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
