Fun day of mushroom hunting
    #3101371 - 09/07/04 12:50 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Today was a very exiting day. Me and my mother went to Mountville pine forest, NewHempshire. We aquired a few speciments a few of which we brought home for the cook out. I have collected here the finest edibles which we prepared in soup and cooked some with potatoes. Since i just got my new digital camera i have decided to share with you all some of my beatifull finds.

First one reminds me of a Russula. If so the gills will be white and the stem will snap firmly. The second one is a Boletus, perhaps a Suillus. The last one is surely a Destroying Angel. It's part of a species complex in the genus Amanita. A single bite of that mushroom will kill a large man.

It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable.

Along with the pictures (if possible), please include the following:

a. Habitat (where [state/province/country] and what does it grow on)
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
c. Measurements of cap and stem.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
f. Spore print color (very important!)
g. Color that the mushroom bruises
h. Scent of mushroom

That said: Here's my stabs at IDs(to a genus):

1. Russla
2. Boletus or suillus
3. Amanita(quite possibly deadly)

YidakiMan was right on with the IDs.
