AMANITAS plus strange blue/green shrooms (PICS)
    #2042903 - 10/25/03 10:10 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

There is a xmas tree farm I walk through every year in W Washington for the wealth of amanitas. I never find any magics and I'm not into eating amanitas but I love to look at them and I've picked a few to spread around my yard.

I've found lots of other cool shrooms there too like some violet colored ones last year. But now I've found these strange blue/green ones. The color doesn't show up very well in the pics (looks more purple) but they are a very blue/green color as one would see in magics. Only they are intensely colored throughout. They were growing in some moss and shaded under young evergreens. They are also being eaten by maggots unfortunately. Can anyone help me with an ID?

Here are the pics of those as well as recent amanita pics.







...damn. I reached the upload limit. I'll upload more later. I have some really beautiful stuff.

Your Amanita, of course, is the ever popular Amanita muscaria.

Your other mushrooms I would normally suggest that you make a spore print and all that other stuff, but they are actually fairly distinctive. And you even got specimens of different ages. they are Cortinarius, close to Cortinarius balteatus or C. sodagnitus. Your second photo shows the cortina (spider web like partial veil) pretty well. Neither of those species is considered edible, and no Cortinarius should be eaten. They are difficult to identify accurately to species, and that results is little useable research on edibility. There are known to be deadly poisonous species of Cortinarius, and none are listed as good edibles. None of them are active.

Happy mushrooming!
