    #3014632 - 08/17/04 06:21 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i live in new jersey, and i was out mowing my lawn and i found a single mushroom growing in the shade of a tree, on the grass. i accidentally kicked over the mushroom and it turned a very very deep blue. i have no experience hunting mushrooms but was curious about wether it was active or not.

a. Habitat - central nj, under shade of tree, growing out of grass
b. Characteristics of the gills - sponge-like
c. Measurements of cap - 1.5" diameter, and stem - 2".
d. Characteristics of the stem - beige/brown colored, smooth, thick
e. Characteristics of the cap - dark brown, almost red
f. Spore print color - unsure
g. Color that the mushroom bruises - very dark blue
h. Scent of mushroom - unsure

im not nsure if this is enough information but id appreciate any help

Your mushroom is a bolete, and it is not active. If you still want an ID, we need more info.

What color are the tubes under the cap (before being bruised)?

When you bruise the tubes, how long does it take them to turn blue (more than 30 seconds or less)?

Look very closely at the surface of the stem. Are there tiny ridges making a pattern like a net there? If there are, do they extend less than halfway down the stem or more than halfway? If not, is the stem completely smooth, or are there any tiny ridges on it?

What kind of tree was it growing near? If you don't know the exact kind, knowing if it was a pine tree or a deciduous tree is still important.

Happy mushrooming!

the tubes are a very light shade of brown, and they bruise blue almost immediately, definately under 30 seconds

the stems are completely smooth and show no patterns as far as i can see

although im not sure of the exact kind of tree it was under, it was deciduous

it definately didnt resemble any mushroom containing psilocybin ive eaten, but the way it bruised blue made me wonder a bit, so thanks for clearing that up
