Hunt at 7,000ft (pics) -updated
    #2991871 - 08/11/04 05:44 PM (13 years, 11 days ago)

Earlier in the summer I noticed lots of mushrooms on my favorite fishing trail. It's just too bad that i didnt have a camera then... now i do! :smile:

Anyways the trail has a horse/bull field to the left of it (you can feed the horses). To the right is a major river which floods most of the area. It is very swampy considering that this is at 7,000ft with 50% or so RH. In the beginning of the trail I found the really dark one with black gills. Next to it i saw the one with white gills that went down to the middle of the stem.

Farther down the trail, not very close to the river or the field i found one of the same mushrooms that I found over three weeks ago. It is absolutely huge now! As I was in awe over the huge mushroom, my friend saw some oysters on the same tree.

Acouple weeks ago after a lot of rain I found many different species of agrocybe's and amanita's. The trail has definatly dried up and the mushrooms aren't very plentiful. I'm sure in the next few weeks when the rains hit again the trail we be plentiful once again! Hope to have more eye candy for you soon.


One more thing... anyone know of a good place to host some pictures? I have really high quality 1600x1200 of these and i want you all to see them instead of these resized piece's of shit.



I have no clue what this guy might be.



Maybe a amanita? not sure, still a newb :smile:




Nice lookin oyster, especially the high quality pics. Still need a place to host em...

Your first one is an Agaricus. It appears to be bruising yellowish, so we would next need to know about odor to make an accurate ID.

The second one is a Cortinarius. The usual next step with them is determining which parts (cap, stem) are slimy or not.

Nice oysters.

Happy mushrooming!

EDIT

I took a better look at the high quality pics and it looks like the stem is slimy. Doesn't look so much like slime but more so like a goo or a sap, it's darker then the stem also.

BTW anyone know of a good place to host pics(500k-700k) ?

is the agaricus growing from rich loam in the forest bed?

does it smell like anise?


--------------------



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.

Yep it was growing in rich loam right next to a good sized river. It was found in shade next to shrubbery. I have another high quality picture of them if I could get a host for it.

I went out today to take some better pictures of the oysters and the cortinarius growing on the same downed tree.

The cortinarius didn't have a distinct smell, also neither the cap or stem was slimy to the touch.

Cortinarius - up close pic of gills

Cortinarius - up close stem
Cortinarius - up close cap

Just a good high quality pic of the Cortinarius

The only pic of the oysters that came out well this time.

Nice photos.

In case you didn't know, Cortinarius are terribly difficult to identify to species. Meinhard Moser (the guy who was the best expert in the world on them until he died a few years ago) said that to identify them you have to have at least three specimens, including a young one and a mature one, to have any hope of identifying them accurately.

None of them are recommended for eating, and there are a few of them that are deadly poisonous.

Happy mushrooming!

^Thanks for the info ToxicMan, i didnt know any of that. Can you suggest any sites to get me started on my mushroom knowledge?

Hopefully the rocky mountains will start to get rain every afternoon again. If so i'll be able to supply lots of pictures of many different species. It really is too bad I didnt have a digi a month ago. :frown:

Also I found this little guy today...

The cap and surrounding area

The gills

The stem

Side view -- very good pic

Mushroomexpert.com is a good site. Michael Kuo has put some keys that show the basic idea of how to classify a mushroom.


The pitlike depressions on the stem suggest that your mushroom is a Lactarius, and the overall appearance suggests that it could be a drought modified Lactarius scrobiculatus. The species close to that one are all inedible or poisonous.

The recommended edible species of Lactarius all bruise green.

Happy mushrooming!
