i live in Atlanta, GA and i came across a field of different mushrooms there were alot of them but it looked like only 2 different types. i'm sure its not active but just very curious.
it just rained heavily the past week (and still is) and i found these
*no noticeable change in color when i tried to bruise one *size varied from small (2 inches across the cap) to huge (12 inches) [age difference i'm guessing] *very bright orange at the top, literally so bright it caught my eye as i was driving past-almost flourescent really weird. *white stalk with a ring at the top, under the cap *white/light gills *the two largest ones that measured at 12+ inches were very mature, their cap wasn't sloped down anymore. one of them was almost flat and the other was sloping upward some and had a puddle of water still gathered at the top from last night's rain. ________________________________________________________ the other: *no noticeable change in color when i tried to bruise one *white stalk *white gills *light brown "nipple" at the top *sizes varied around just a couple inches across the cap, smaller then the bright orange
**when i got out and walked over to them to look at them there was a distinct smell from them (kinda musky from all the rain, the grass was still very wet and dirt was muddy)
pictures are coming soon, i went back and took pics and found more along the way. the new ones i found look like some sort of amanitas.
the once bright orange ones have dried out alot just over the period of half a day from the sun. they went from an almost flourescent orange to a watered down orange, in time i think they'll turn brownish orange.
i know they're not active but i'm interested in knowing what they are, so hopefully someone can id them once i put the pics up
well i think i might have ID'd 2 out of the 4 batches. Chlorophyllum molybdites i think is one of the new batches i found on my way back to the old one, i'll post the pictures anyway they have "crumbly" looking caps.
the other looks alot like chanterelles, its yellow and has a wavy-edged cap from what i remember.
there's a very good chance that i'm wrong because i just now learned these words for these 2 strains
