Newbie Stumbled On Pile of Shrooms
    #2044663 - 10/26/03 02:33 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys,

I've been shroom hunting a couple times before, but always unseccessfully. Today I was fishing, and I found a group of shrooms growing next to the lake. I'm waiting for the spore print now, and I'll post a picture before the days over, but I'd like to list some characteristics and see if anyone can make an early guess.

I'm in South Georgia. It rained last night. We were fishing at a lake surrounded by trees, it was very shady. The shrooms were growin about 5-10ft away from the water in moist ground covered by pinestraw. They are several sizes, ranging from small ( one inch tall is the smallest and not very wide at all) caps to large, heavily gilled caps that are folding into themselves almost. The caps and and stem are redish-brown. The smell is very mild. The taste is virtually non-existent, vaguely mushroomy. The stems are thin. They basically just look like big red shrooms that are curling up on themselves.

I've taken shrooms several times, but never found my own. I realize my description is probably too vague for anyone to identify, and I'm working on a picture right now. I'm having trouble hooking the camera up.
Thanks in advance.

That's the correct way to taste an unknown mushroom.

Make sure you get a photo of the underside of the mushrooms. We need to see the gills and top of the stem. It's also a good idea (if possible) to slice one in half vertically and show us that in the photo as well (the inside part, that is).

Happy mushrooming!
