what is the odd discoloration on this cap? PICs
    #2238222 - 01/13/04 01:39 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

it's the dark brown/black spot on the top half of the cap. the white spot in the upper left part is where i wiped it off with my finger. it had a sticky/gummy feel to it. this same sort of spot was on another mushroom right next to this one, but the rest look normal. i first noticed this discoloration today when i picked them.
thanks for the help.

Looks like spores to me. Not to worry!

it kind of looks like that but it's on the TOP of the cap.  unless the spores were able to defy gravity i don't see how it could be spores :wink:

btw the white spot in the second pic is not really white, that's just from the flash of camera.

Yea, they are spores no doubt.

Make sure you pick those mushrooms before they begin to sporulate! Mushrooms can leave QUITE a mess :rolleyes:.

Spores. Cubensis has a viscid pellicle on the cap, that's what you called a "sticky/gummy feel". Logically, the spores get attached easily in that place.
