Mushroom ID with pics
    #2988616 - 08/10/04 11:25 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm curious if anyone can identify these mushrooms that have been growing outside my Omaha, Nebraska office for the past two months. The are growing on some kind of chipped wood mulch. I think the very largest of them is about 2 inches across, but typically they are about an inch in diameter.

I'm trying to get a spore print off of one of the caps, but I don't know how well that will work out.

My apologies for the blury pics, I can take a clearer picture if necessary. The top of the cap is fairly uniform in color, with some wrinkles from the dry recent conditions.




Any ideas?

The caps are infinately lighter in color than the autumnalis I'm used to finding bu the rusty gills and the habitat info are all correct and I can't fig. what else it would be. Do a spore print- if it's like a rusty color than that's what it is- eating one can kill. But I had no such worries- just a reminder. The print should be strong. There are one or two other things I guess it COULD be but lets wait on the print.

You've gotta keep in mind that if they've been in the sun, the caps will get "bleached."

Ahh! True- I guess that since I've never found galerinas outside of the forests, I have never seen any that have been exposed to enough direct sunlight to become bleached. I wish I had my old picture disks. They had lots images of galerinas and lots of other mushrooms too. Peace.

I've been watching these come up, and the new ones in the morning on overcast days are not significantly darker than the ones in the image. They come up light tan. The lightness of the cap in the image is not really accurate, they are.. um.. LBM colored. Maybe the color of slightly aged pine wood? Very much like a medium brown cubinsis. Cigarette-filter tan would be a good discription.

The sporeprint appears to be dark brown. The spores under the microscope are golden brown.

Here is the sporeprint and a blury image of the spores under the 'scope (I discovered I could get better images by leaving the print on paper and lighting from the top, but there just isn't enough light to get a good image without a tripod for the camera).

Micro- shot of spores sems to confirm galerina- elliptical- smooth depression. Print color matches as well. I'll be damned. There ya go! Deadly mushrooms in the flesh.
