an big orange pineroot lover
    #2581762 - 04/20/04 10:42 AM (13 years, 11 days ago)

High
Last week I found a big yellow-orangish woodlover growing on the roots of a cutted pine.
The spores or orange.
I would like to know what it is and more if it is a g. spectabilis
Thanks

Wow!!! Great find! I do indeed think you have spectabilis.

I've never personally identified this species, but all of the indicators point to spectabilis. I'm poor and I'd put money on it.

Is there anyway you'd consider taking a print or two for me? I'd be more than happy trading for them.

Well, you can't eat them just yet, as I'd advise you to wait for a definite ID from one of the resident experts :smile:

Have you checked if your mushrooms show any signs of bruising?

Doesn't look like armellaria mellea the honey mushroom to me. Probably Gymnopilus but not sure which

Hey Toxic, am I right or wrong?

Quirion, nice photos, mj

wasn't thinking in eating them yep, dont worry.
Bu did take a taste sample (and spitted it out, just taking the flavour) and its bitter like hell. (or absinth, hmmm, yummy)
about bruising, there ins't much color change, that why i'm still not shure.
But does the Gymnopilus contain psilocine???

they can, but don't always. I've heard before that it's a regional thing, i.e. the g. spectabilis on the west coast (of the US) are not active and those back east are, but I don't know how accurate that is. Where were those in the pictures from? I've found what I believe to be G. ventricosus a few times, Arora describes it as a large, non-hallucinogenic, conifer-loving western form of g. spectabilis with a swollen stalk and membranous veil...

I've found spectabilis on the west coast in the US, but, they were not active.

I believe those are indeed spectabilis...but, I wouldnt eat them.

Those appear to be Gymnopilus spectabilis. The closest similar species is G. ventricosus. The easiest way to distinguish them is that G. spectabilis has gills which are adnate to decurrent and G. ventricosus has subsinuate gills. Your specimens have decurrent gills, so that seems to settle it.

Great find and excellent photos.

Happy mushrooming!

I ID those to be G. Spectabilis... Found several last year..
New England area..Your drying area will be full of the
sweet aroma in no time... Not yummy, but effective...
I've had several friends tell me they like the buzz,
better than cubensis.. "But what do they know"...
Personally I don't agree.. Good luck choking them baddies down....

He, he,,,,, Nice find.. NofindUm.....

You can tell spectabilis because of the partial veil. I would advise not eating them though cause ive heard they can cause liver damage.

Just for comparison purposes, here are a few images of Gymnopilus spectabilis I found on the web. Looks like a close match...
