Northern Ontario Mushrooms
    #3007676 - 08/16/04 02:22 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Was up in northern ontario this weekend, and happened to come across some red-capped mushrooms... Unfortunately didn't have a camera on me and only remember that it had a red cap, white gils and was growing on pine needles. Any estimates based on info?

Probably a Russula or Amanita.

Here in California I find many Amanita muscaria during the winter months in pine needles.

Did the cap have white spots, or was it just a solid red cap?

Solid red, no white spots

im pretty sure that it wasnt an amanita if it didnt have white spots, but then again ive seen pics of muscaria's that had like 1 or 2 spots.

Well, its safe to say that it was most likely NOT edible/active.

If you want a positive ID, read the Forum Rules and list some additional information.

I wasn't checking to see if it was an edible/active, I was just curious on some possibilities for the type of mushroom. I was unfortunately without a notebook to copy information down or a camera, so I can only give a description from memory alone. None of them had any signs of a veil, their cap was a slightly duller red then an amanita, I wasn't able to take a spore print, they had no white spots/warts on them, were found growing on pine needles in northern Ontario, Canada, gills were white and stem was white, and had a very weak smell (had to have nose practically pressed to mushroom to get a good scent). That's about all I can remember..
