Need help IDing these mario mushrooms ;D
    #2081321 - 11/07/03 04:36 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, my friend found 3 different species of mushrooms today ,this is the first one we need help IDing ( we are shroom huntin noobs).







a. Habitat (where and what does it grow on)
Found alongside the road, near a canal, in some grass and bushes.

b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
The gills look like a yellow sponge, with pores. Also there are little tiny tiny ass round bugs chillin around the gills and going into the spores.

c. Measurements of cap and stem.
The cap is 2 2/3 inches wide. the stem is about 3 inches long, and 1/2 inch wide .


d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)

Pale yellow/whitish color on stem. Smooth texture, and Solid.
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)

The cap is a brickish red, with pale yellow color on the outer edges of the cap. Texture is smooth like a baby's bottom. The shape of the cap seem halfway convex, and on some they seem conical.


f. Spore print color (very important!)

Getting that now, will post it later.
g. Color that the mushroom briuses

Mushroom bruises blue and then the blue turns a little more black a few minutes later... It bruises a couple minutes after touching it on some spots.

h. Scent of mushroom
Mushroomy smell :P

When you scratch the pores, do they turn blue within 30 seconds?

Look very closely at the stem. Is there a pattern of tiny ridges on the surface like a net, especially near the top?

Happy mushrooming!

Yes I just scratched the pores and they almost instantly turned to a darker bluish color.

Yes there is a pattern of what looks like tiny ridges and where the stem connects to the cap it definately resembles a net-like texture.

Btw, i found these in southern florida, if that helps.

The photos appear to show that the cap is a fairly bright pinkish color, or possibly a pinkish brown. Is that correct?

Try taking a small piece from the edge of the cap about the size of your smallest fingernail, put it in your mouth, chew for a few seconds, and spit it out. Is it bitter, peppery, mild, ...?

Happy mushrooming!

Yes actually bright pinkish brown is a better description of color than my previous description.

My friend just chewed on some. He says it definately wasnt spicy in any way, or peppery. He says that he didnt hate the taste but, he didnt enjoy the taste either. He said he cant really describe the taste but probably bitter is the best description.

Also btw, where he broke off the part of the cap it is white inside the cap and turned blue'ish.

When a mushroom is described as bitter, you don't normally have any doubt at all about it. They tend to be either extremely bitter or not bitter. Since your description suggests that it's not intensely bitter, it's probably closer to mild.

Your bolete keys out fairly well as Boletus speciosus, which is an edible species. Most descriptions seem to suggest that it isn't worth eating, just that (if cooked) you won't normally be poisoned by eating it. I wouldn't bother trying eating it. Your mention of the bugs on it suggests that they've probably already gotten to it pretty good anyway.

It is interesting, in that I don't recall seeing that species out here before. Nice specimen.

Happy mushrooming!
