I have found two very strang mushrooms and i cannot find any pictures of them online.
#1- I rather large mushroom with a white cap with big black "Spines" all over it makeing it look almost all black. Its stem is black and the underneath side of the cap is black and looks like a honey com.
#2- A small mushroom with a purplish brown cap with white in teh center. Its stem is pink and the underneath part of the cap is white.
The first mushroom sounds like an "Old Man of the Woods". It should bruise dark brown to black. Some field guides list them as edible and some as inedible. I've never tried them, but my dad tried them last year and said they didn't taste very good.
Habitat- Massachusetts, pine woods b. white flakey gills,very soft c. 3 inches tall d. Hard thin stem, soft pink color with white at the base e. cap is soft and small with dark purpleish brown and white in the center
