Amanita? Yard Shrooms HUGE!!
    #1886951 - 09/06/03 12:14 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Found these monsters in a nearby yard. I ID'd them as Amanita Albocreata. My guide says the caps are 1-3" though, but look at the ruler and my rather large hand for scale!! these things were enormous!! The biggest one was 9 inches across! The ruler in all photos is set to 12" to provide scale. I love this hobby.





Here are some of the caps that hadn't opened yet:


Here's the growth pattern:


I am sorry for not kicking one over to get a look at the gills. I could't bring myself to kick over any of these monsters just so I could look at their guts. My bad. I should have kicked over one of the smaller ones for better ID.

Thanks for looking. Any comments welcomed.

Nope, those are Chlorophyllum molybdites... poisonous!

Looks like someone lost their disc. Are there any disc golf courses around?

those do not look Chlorophyllum molibdites. they look like a (macro)lepiota etc. get one and take some nice pics and write a description and get a spore print and well check it out. where do you live?

actually the middle pic really resembles C. molibdites but the rest dont. enough of pics. take a mature specimen and tell us the color of the gills, or swipe them on a white sheet of paper and tell us what it leaves on it.

Ive picked those from cow pastures and mistaken them for P. Cubensis. I ate them and got pretty sick. Good thing they arent deadly though. I just got all clammy as well as the shits and threw up for like 3 hours before I passed out. The gills should have a greenish color to them. Bot def dont fuck with them.

ya well you have to admit when you find shrooms in a cow field you get pretty excited. And they do kinda look like the Gulf Coast strain...expecially when they have that brownish nipple on top and the dark gills. I read somewhere that 95% of mushroom poisonings-misidentifications in florida are from the C.Molydite so Im not alone.

There was no way in hell I was going to try to eat them. They were growing in a yard about 3 hours NE of the coast of Texas.

Looking at my ID guide it is very possible that these were Chlorophyllum molybdites and therefore toxic. Without a photo or cross section of the gills or a spore print it will be difficult to know for certain. Odds are with the slightly cooler temperatures, the humidity, and the rain these will crop up again. I'll get a positive id on them then.

In the meantime it is a mycology hobbyist's interest that made me take photos of these and post them, not any kind of hope that they would be edible or active in any way. I think we all have to admit that a 9" cap is enough to capture our interest no matter what the final outcome or identification. I mean GOOD LORD! 9 inches!!

ive got those same exact shrooms in my yard. i live about 45minutes NE of san antonio texas. they are huge. i found 1 or 2 of them growing once, and i picked em. ever since then, when it rains and its humid, they pop up in small patches. usually 6/8 at a time. i was hoping they were magic :frown:

Well Boys uh huh nine inches HUH?But you can't take those,check my thread,you'll find reference to some birches ,now sadly only stumps having been sacrificed to an orchid conservation project, these produced amanita muscaria the size of supper plates more than once.
