Wierd old mushroom
    #3136384 - 09/14/04 10:41 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I know this is old and dried up, but it so wierd and rather interesting. Kind of hard to describe, so I apologize for no description. I found it in an old growth hardwoods forest on the ground in leaf and branch compost. Any guesses? I would just like to know if it is worth looking for any fresh ones.

Solid funnel with tapered stem

Ridges and veins, does not look like gills.

Had a ring

Looks like the cap may have been white

In that condition it's going to be pretty much impossible to identify accurately. Even the professional mycologists generally just throw specimens like that away without trying to ID them.

Having said that, it suggests a really old, rotting Honey Mushroom.

Happy mushrooming!
