Pluteus petasetus
    #2690072 - 05/17/04 05:23 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)


These specimens of Pluteus petasetus were brought in at the meeting of the Colorado Mycological Society last Monday. They were growing from a maple stump. The largest cap is about 8 cm across. The cluster was split by me in two to make a better photograph.

Since we don't get to see very many pink-spored mushrooms, I thought they'd be an interesting change of pace. The pink color of the gills is an accurate representation of the spore print color. The gills were originally white when young.

Happy mushrooming!

You do know there are six species of Pluteus with psilocine/psilocybine in them.

Unfortunately this is not one of them.

cool score.

in the picture (the larger of the two smaller ones) it looks almost exactly like something that used to grow down the street from me (i live in ct) but the stem was smaller, you couldnt see gills (kinda of like Agaricus bisporus) and they grew on the side of someones garage near (but not in) a small compost pile. When you stepped on or squished theese a puff of greenish brown smoke would come out (only once each.) although theese may not even be shrooms, has any one ever heard of them or anything like them.

im sorry i dont have any pictures but they havent grew in 2-3 years

Being quite fond of Pluteus species myself I feel moved to add that P. petasatus (as it is spelled in all my references) is considered uncommon in England, although it one of many 'uncommon' species that pop up in ever more profuse numbers on woodchip beds.

Most of the pink spored mushrooms I find are Entolomas, and I don't consider that a genus to look for edibles in. There are a couple edible species, but most of them are too difficult to identify to use for food. There are also many dangerously poisonous species.

If you limit yourself to lignicolous (wood lovers) species, then you do a lot better. There are many edible Pluteus and Volvariella species. Of course, you still need to ID them to be sure, but the growing from wood part makes that a lot easier.

Happy mushrooming!
