Big Laughing Jims?
    #1930797 - 09/19/03 12:20 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

These smell like mushrooms from the store. I have not seen any bluing yet, only been about 30 mins. My spore print is also coming. I will get all of this stuff on here asap.
My location is Ohio, and I found these in someones yard in the grass.
I know some of the pics suck, i just ran in their yard, took them and ran out. ha...right on the side of the road.

Absolutely positive about those not being Big Laughing Gyms. Take a spore print and I can be more positive about what they ARE.

Probably the poisonous jack o' lantern. I see no remnants of any annular zone, and also in that picture taken in the dark at night it seems to show an upturned cap, typical of mature jack o' lanterns and not a characteristic of G. spectabilis.


LK,

Those decurrent gills, and an apparent pale spore print suggest that you've found Jack O'Lanterns. They are very nasty poisonous - if you eat one you could be sick for several days.

Happy mushrooming!

Ah yes, and of course the decurrent gills were also a dead give away.

play around with them in the dark and you'll have a neat time though.

...and, since you cant see a sporeprint on white paper, that suggests it dropped white spores which also points to a Jack-O-Lantern.

!! :laugh:
