So I'm scouting around for a place that's got mushrooms coming up for this Saturday's foray, and here's a few of the more interesting looking mushrooms found.

First, here's one of my favorites, Boletus barrowsii. It's one of the best edible mushrooms around. concretefeet, all the specimens I found today had reticulation extending entirely down the stipe.


Next we have one that will probably fool some who look at the photo first and not the text, as it greatly resembles Agaricus augustus, which it isn't. In fact, I stuck that name in the text as an *evil* prank to baffle the unwary. Actually, these are A. amicosus, which bruises pink, not yellow, and lacks the almondy odor. They are an excellent edible, although not as good as A. augustus. These are not large specimens for this species, even though the opened one is a bit over 6 inches across.


Next we have a colorful mushroom, Hygrocybe conica. They make nice photos, if nothing else.


Lastly, a mushroom I haven't been able to identify accurately to species. They're Entolomas, but IDing them to species is a bitch. There aren't any really good keys available. Entolomas have always been fascinating to me, but identifying them is an exercise in frustration and humility.


Happy mushrooming!

I think those little red mushrooms you called Hygrocybe are called Hygrophorous (same thing?), and they are edible. I've eaten them, and they taste pretty good, but they're tiny, so you'd need a lot for a meal.

ToxicMan is veryyy experienced in identification and has actualy specimens to ID with; I think he is more likely to be correct than you.

Awesome photos TM. Those Entolomas are facinating, and frustrating; it seems like nobody has really figured them out yet. I love your posts. :thumbup:

Hygrocybe conica and Hygrophorous conicus are actualy synonyms but i believe and according to Arora that Hygrocybe is the current and corect placement.

where edibility is concerned, if the texture of H. psittacina is any indication, i see no real reson to eat it regaurdless of the current evidence supporting it as a harmless species. i see nothing warranting the risk.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
