Colourful purple and blue shrooms (Melbourne)
    #2783787 - 06/11/04 04:46 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hey all..

Went hunting today with some friends up in the Dandenongs and we found a nice dense area of bush with lots of leaves, broken up logs and ferns etc.

We came across quite a few species of mushroom, a few which looked quite poisonous (real white ones coming out of logs, and tall big white ones with a black spot in the middle).

The 2 (or 3?) species we found (which i've taken pics of here) were amazing looking mushrooms.. there is a reallly violet  purple species which have purple gills and purple everywhere.. then theres the real blue/metallic blue ones which most of had a goldy brown/sometimes bright yellow spot in the middle.

I did not notice any real significant colour change in the stems/gills although some look like they have gone darker maybe(?)

Can someone please identify these? I dunno if they'd be actives? They just looked awesome :smile:

Ok im no expert but heres my guesses

Blue Capped Shrooms = Cotrinarius Rotundisporus
Purple Capped Shrooms = Cotrinarius Lavendulensis

Hey bozbo, take your cam' a hunting with you next time, I would've liked to see a natural shot of those guys growing... COOL LOOKING SHROOMS, despite non-active... (and then post your natural, well focussed non-active Melbourne find pics in Dr Octo's thread...)

Peace, love and organic brown rice...
