mushroom hike identification
    #2926297 - 07/25/04 05:20 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i recently went walking on some horse trails in SE michigan and found that the park was full of different kinds of mushrooms. Most I knew to be poisoness or not useful, these two I'm not too sure about.

both were found by the trail. soil was sandy, covered in a fern/moss like groundcover. It was dry and relatively shaded. It grew on the ground and not on any decaying matter or horse crap

The wider-capped one is a Russula. Unfortunately, identification to species requires a microscope. Given its appearance, it's not one of the ones generally regarded as edible, and is likely to be mildly poisonous. A quick wild guess would put it in the group of species close to Russula emetica.

The taller one with the ring on the stem is an Amanita. An accurate identificatio to species for this one would require a microscope and chemical reagents. At a glance it appears similar to Amanita flavoconia, but it could very well be any of several similar species. It should be treated as poisonous.

Happy mushrooming!

The Large capped mushroom with the red top appears to
be Russula emetica, with a slightly deformed cap, though
it seems to be poking its head out early, R. emetica is a
poisonous mushroom. The smaller capped mushroom with the
orange top seems to be Amanita flavoconia. I am unsure
of A. flavoconia's edibility, but it is best to consider it
unedible.

Please note, that these are not to be considered positive
identification, as the information provided was inadaquate,
and based on visual recognition only.

We seem to be of a like mind ToxicMan, you
however are more careful in your warnings,
though I try to give decent warning with my
ID's also. I hope that I don't appear to be
treading on your, or anyone elses territory,
but it's been a while since I've posted in
this, or other similar forums, and I always
get a kick out of identifying mushies.

*I should add, that in the time it took
me to type my reply (I'm a slow typist)
yours had already been posted. Since they
were similar, I didn't want to look like
I was just copying what you had said.

The small one is definately Amanita, They're related to Destroying Angels and it will probably kill you, if not make you sick.

cfsimmons - Having more people to seem to have a clue about identifying is a good thing. I don't think any of us get worked up about somebody new making IDs, unless they're wildly wrong and might lead to a poisoning. Especially if your IDs are at least close the assistance in identifying will be appreciated. The ones I have seen so far by you look pretty good.

My conservativism in identification comes mostly from time around professional mycologists. There are few things that help develop one's humility better than to guess a species for a mushroom and then have a world recognised expert name it something else. I have also done some IDs for the Poison Centers, and you have to be very careful in those cases. If you have any doubts, then you need to be sure they are explicitly expressed, as somebody's life is potentially at stake.

Happy mushrooming!

thanks guys.

now that i've come back home and have seen the pictures, I shoulda picked up what I thought were good Panaeolus subbalteatus. what threw me off was that some were like a bright toxic orange and some were the normal flesh color. oh well, it was just an impromptu search after discovering a large patch of 6 or 7 different kinds of shrooms

The subbs in my patch sometimes take on that bright orange coloration.

You can kinda see what I mean in this picture:


Here's a perfect example:

There are about 3-4 different red/purple/pink rusullas, I found a bunch this weekend. If it tastes hot, it is probably a bit toxic. They are gorgeous! I love them.....
