First time hunter looking for an ID
    #3123695 - 09/11/04 10:24 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hello to all. Before I get down to buisness, I would just like to tell everyone here that you guys do an amazing job and are very helpful in getting one started in mycology. With that said...I just returned from my first hunt with little success. I found a decent variety of mushrooms, but am catious(as one should be)so I just got rid of any mushrooms with white gills. As for these ones, they were found

a. Pennsylvania-September 11 -growing on the forest floor on wood chip type ground
b. The gills are light brownish/reddish and are attached to the stem
c. I didnt get an exact measurement of the cap or stems, but the larger caps are about the size of a baseball in diameter and the smaller ones are about the size of a tennis ball maybe.
d. The stem is solid and smooth in texture, roughly between 2-4 inches
e. The cap is pretty much flat and the edges droop down a bit, maybe due to moisture. It has a lighter brown color around the edges and a dark brown center, although the center is moist.

-i havent gotten the print yet, but I am in the process of it as I speak and will update

-thanks for your help

Given the size, the rust colored spore print, and that it was growing on the ground, it's probably a Cortinarius.

Happy mushrooming!
