Today's Hunt
    #1994214 - 10/09/03 06:40 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I found these under pines, near some Amanitas.
They look to be Boletus or Suillius, they had a very thick membranous veil which was very sticky.





I was hoping this was my first active find..
The image came out blury. :frown:
The gills looked to be a little too brown to be psilocybe, but the smell was reminicant of cubes. It also stains brown.







Im not sure where to start with this one, it was growing under a pine next to Amanitas.

 







Here are some Shaggy Manes.



Any help would be appreciated, I'm printing them now.

Thoes are probably "Prince" Agaricus augustus. They are edible and choice, if you get to them before the worms do.
look for similar pics on-line. I have collected several of them not long ago. There is a clump of them under some pine trees down the street. Ive got pics but there not ready yet.

Next time you go on a trip, I recommend listening to Her Satanic Majestys Request by the Rolling Stones. You'll be glad you did.

Those first guys look like Suillus to me. If you look very closely at the stem, there should be tiny colored dots, especially near the top. Those are called "glandular dots", and they are a characteristic of many Suillus species. Try bruising the tubes and let us know what color changes you get (they tend to bruise within a few minutes).

The second one is a bit blurry. Are any parts of it slimy or sticky? Let us know about the spore print from this one.

The next one looks close to Agaricus augustus. Scrape the inside with your knife edge to bruise it, and watch for color changes. A. augustus should bruise yellow, and it should have an almondy odor. There is a lookalike species here in the Rockies that bruises reddish (it's edible, too). There are also some poisonous Agaricus that can be similar to that, so be alert for a possible phenolic (ink-like, metallic, library paste) odor.

And, of course, Shaggy Manes are one of the easiest mushrooms around to identify. That makes them one of the safest edibles around.

Happy mushrooming!
