sponge gills?
    #2074039 - 11/05/03 04:54 PM (20 years, 6 months ago)

What oes it mean when in place of gills, a mushroom has sponge-like stuff? Is it a veil, or just weird gills? Because I found mushrooms that looked just like this:



But the one I picked had a spongy underside instead of gills. And yes, I know that picture is of Galerina Autumnalis, and the spore print was rusty as well, so my guess is that it's the veil?

It means they're boletes and not at all the mushroom in the picture. Do a quick look up on boletes and you'll see that all of them have sponge gills... pretty nifty. None of them are active, some are edible, some are poisonous.

Well, I Googled "bolete spore print" and the only one mentioned with a rusty spore print, that didn't bruise blue, was Austroboletus, and the stem of the mushroom I found was very different. Any suggestions?

There are a ton of Bolete species.

It depends on the habitat in where they were growing, what they were growing from, the color of the pores (The sponge-gills..heh), and the size of the mushroom.

Most boletes have a brown or pale olive color sporeprint. You have to be a little bit more descriptive when trying to ask for an ID.

I wasn't asking for an ID, but now I am, I guess.


Size: don't exactly recall, around 7in tall including cap. Cap was maybe 3 or 4 inches in diameter. (once i figure out how to get a pic from my friend's phone to my comp, I'll have one)

Cap: Very "meaty" feeling, same color as the galerina pictured above

Stem: about 5in long, white, no noticed bruising (could have easily overlooked it). I now realize the stem was longer than those galerinas, too.

Spore Print: rusty brown colored

Gills (pores): white/off-white?

Smell: basically, an organic earthy mushroom smell

Anything else?

If you scratch the tubes, do they bruise bluish within 30 seconds?

If you taste a tiny piece of the cap (spit it out after tasting), is it bitter or peppery?

Happy mushrooming!
