What are these ?
    #2870021 - 07/08/04 09:22 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Can anyone identify these?

a. they were found in georgia right beside a pine tree forest, rained 2 days ago, temp is 80-95*F
b. gills are thin and well moveable
c. Cap size varies but they are all bell shaped.
d. stem - size it alittle bigger then a pencil, only slightly hollow (small hole through it)
e. cap - yellowish white/off white. top view is round, side view is bell shaped, with a nipple on the top, also you can see gill-like texture on the outer ring of the cap.
f. spore print - will know in 12 hours or so
g. bruise - light brown, slightly darker then its color.
h. either my nose is broken or they have no scent

here are slightly better pics.


For more information on them just ask.

You should really read the forum guidelines... There's a lot of information you should be providing with that pic, as the fuzzy pic alone is nowhere near enough to be remotely confident as to what kind of shroom it could be... **This is where you read forum guidelines and edit your post to fit them :wink:**

Yes, read the rules/guidelines. Take a sporeprint, those are definitely not what you're thinking they are. is that a cup(volva) I see at the base of the 2 on the left? if so they could be amanitas or volvariellas. if they're amanitas they could be deadly, don't eat them...

II. Accurate mushroom descriptions

It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable.

Along with the pictures (if possible), please include the following:

a. Habitat (where [state/province/country] and what does it grow on)
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
c. Measurements of cap and stem.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
f. Spore print color (very important!)
g. Color that the mushroom bruises
h. Scent of mushroom

For more detailed guidelines for describing your finds, please view this document.

For an explanation of mycological terms please refer to this document .

ahh

if they're amanitas the spore print will be white, volvariellas have pinkish to reddish spores.

From the pictures I am finding online they look sorta like the psilocybe samuiensis, or P. Azurescens




LOL... Ps. samuiensis grow in Thailand, and Ps. azurscens grow in Oregon in late fall. Definately neither one.

Nice ID request!

Someone will have an ID for ya when you get the sporeprint up. I'm guessing amanitas for now.

one species of volvariella is commonly eaten and sold in stores, but it's from asia and not found wild here in the US, AFAIK. I think there are edible species here in the US, but it's best to avoid any mushroom with those cups at the base, as people have been poisoned(some died I believe) after gathering amanitas by mistake. Like I said above, don't eat them. I agree that they're more likely to be amanitas, given the habitat.

Those certainly look like one of the various deadly Amanita species. To identify them accurately to species requires a microscope and some chemical reagaents, but any mushroom that resembles them should be treated as deadly.

Nice specimens.

Happy mushrooming!
