Succesful harvest....Shroom ID WHIte Gills=Bad?
    #1962260 - 09/29/03 10:31 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys...I went pickin in central Florida cow fields last night and found a bunch of shrooms again. (After a successful night 2 days ago) I got 5 ounces of wet Cubies...about 9 ounces of Healthy good sized copes and a few other species I was hoping you can help me out on. The first one highly resembles a Cubie..It has the ring and a copper nipple on top. However...The stems seem to be rather thinner and the gills are totallly white. Any ideas?

Start by getting a spore print. Since this spore print is for identification, you need to do it on white paper. Let us know what color it comes out. Then, give us a bit more description of the mushroom - look in the sticky threads for help on what should be there.

The problem with "highly resembles a Cubie" is that it might seem to be that way to you, but a mycologist might think they don't look much alike at all.

Happy mushrooming!

First thing that comes to mind is some sort of amanita. Could be something entirely different though. Follow TM's instructions if you want this species ided.

I believe I found some of the same mushrooms your talking about, I'm taking a sporeprint as we speak and then I'll try to scan a pic. It looked a lot like a cube from a distance, but as he said, the gills are white and the veil is also white (as opposed to being stained purple/blue). The nipple is a little pointier than most cubes, and is brown fading to white on the rest of the cap. The cap also apears to be sort of bumpy (for lack of a better term). I am reasonably sure it bruised a very noticable red when I first picked it, when I went back to look at it just now the stem had turned a nasty black.

White Spore Print.
