mushroom ids please
    #2897581 - 07/16/04 05:26 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hi, I found a mushroom with a white stem and orangish cap growing on some leaves and rotting sticks in the woods in rhode island. It was growing by itself.





Just to give you an idea on the size, that's a cd case that they are on.
The other mushroom next to it was growing with a group of three or four others. I doubt that that is anything good, but I picked one just incase. This one was growing on some wet ground where a stream used to run through.

Can anyone please tell me if these mushrooms are any good?

It's tough giving an ID with
the limited information and pictures
you supplied..

#1 you should read the posting rules.. And faq's... learn some ID lingo.

The first mushroom seems to be some type
of russula... Not sure of the species.. No where near active...
The second could be one of thousands... Don't know??? Not active or edible. possibly poisonous...do not eat either one....

I live in RI and have been finding those russulas...
Keep your eyes open for cantherellis cinnibarius,, and c. cibarius...
chanterelles... I spotted the first pins comming up in my patch the other day.. good luck and happy hunting Nofindum...

ok thanks, this was my first time actually looking for them. I'll give it try again later.

About 20 or 30 species of Russula can be identified fairly easily but there are perhaps 750 worldwide. Yours looks like R. paludosa or R. mairei to me but it's hard to tell with the information provided - I'm just guessing :smile:
