Trying to ID?
    #2234220 - 01/11/04 03:33 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I came across some mushrooms today that I didn't really have time to get a good look at much less take a picture but all the same I'd like to try and figure out what they were. They grew amongst oaks in a sandy soil in NW FL. The cap was of a lightish green color like this  :rolleyes: There were about 6 or 7 seeming to come from a common base. The stipe was white or cream and from 1-3 inches tall. The caps ranged from 1-2 1/2 inches. Hopefully some one can give me a few ideas as to what they might be. I've been using www.mycokey.com to help with the ID but to no avail.

Although green is an unusual color for a mushroom, there are a lot of species that can be greenish.

Russula is probably the most common genus for green mushrooms.

Hygrocybe psittacina is often green.

There are also lots of mushrooms that bruise greenish.

The shape of the cap, how thick and brittle the flesh is, and how slimy it is would all be helpful bits of information.

Happy mushrooming!

Russulas indeed come in some nice fancy finishes, yes :smile: But I've never seen several Russulas growing from a common base, so I don't think this could be a Russula.

Vertigo, some more info would be necessary to make a reanoably educated guess, IMO...

Lacteria deliciousus has green tinges in it and so does Stropharia aeruginosa, as well as Psilocybe stuntzii and Psilocybe cyanescens.

I have posted images of green tinged cyans, blue ringers and aeruginosa on this p board inthe past.

Stropharia aeruginosa, Psilocybe stuntzii and Psilocybe cyanescens do not occur in florida however. :smile:

Thank you all for your suggestions. After going through Mycokey I'm pretty sure their some sort of Russula. They most looked like Russula Roultii. They had the came color pattern (light color in the middle that fades toward the edge) but with a little more green like in the smlie face above. Do those even grow down here?

Keep in mind that you cannot accurately identify Russulas without using a microscope. Everybody tries anyway, and it's fun, but we should remember that such an ID is only a guess and it requires more information.

Happy mushrooming!

I don't know Russula Roultii (none of my guides lists it and Google didn't produce any results), but be sure to check if the habitat and season match with your find.

Russula Virescens is another green russula which appears to grow in deciduous woods. You can recognize it by the cracked cap surface. I guess this only shows the correctness of TM's last post: russula's are a bitch to identify, but it sure is fun! :smile:
