Possible Chanterelle, Please Help ID
    #2003464 - 10/12/03 10:17 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)















Alright I found these in a damp lawn today located in the Seattle Tacoma area. The caps are viscid. The spore print came out brown. It has a strong mushroom smell, similiar to the normal button mushrooms you buy in the store but with a slight difference that I can not describe. The mushroom bruises brownish orange. It may be a clitocybe or something, I am not too sure. Any help would be great, thank you.

They don't look like chanterelles. They look like they have real gills, whereas chanterelles have mock gills. Also I don't think chanterelles typically grow in lawns like that. I have no idea what they are.

True, as I look in the book I have it describes them with vein/gill things. These do have real gills.

Definately not Chanterelles. They could be Paxilus or Lactarius. Could be poisonous, do not eat.

Chanterelle gills/veins look like this:

Yep, they're deadly Paxilus involutus. Look at the incurved margin!
They're not poisonous for the first or the second time you eat them, but then you may develop an acquired hypersensitivity-type reaction that may result in hemolytic crisis.

zeronio has it. Those are the potentially deadly Paxillus involutus.

Happy mushrooming!

Here's a couple things to help you ID those in the field (other than general appearance).

If you scratch the gills (use a knife or twig), they should bruise brown.

The gills peel easily from the underside of the cap (much as the tubes of boletes do).

Happy mushrooming!
