Pacific NW rains brought a few I need ID'd!
    #3149766 - 09/17/04 09:36 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi! I'm so glad I found this site. I was researching Lepiota Rhachodes to begin with, but now that I know there are so many helpful people to ID other muchrooms I'll give it a try. I found a few that I don't know today so I took pics and will attempt to be clear about the characteristics.



This one and the other pics I took are a little blurry. I tried to get a closeup and apparently screwed up my focus. Are these Liberty caps?

Growing in grass, fragile, stems came up readily from the mossy grass under the fir trees where I was. Spore prints are in the works.



Are these edible? Are they Russulas? They have a pretty sheen to them but are not viscid at all. VERY cripy, the heads as well as the stem. They have an almost metalic smell to them...but very faint. I took a shot of the gills. They are attached and don't appear to show any bruising propoerties. Here's the close up of that. I have them printing right now as well.



My last entry is of some curious mushrooms I found growing in fir needles/moss/and a few in grass.




Again...not really viscid but with a nice sheen to them. They are tougher than the first ones. I can shake them by the stem and the cap doesn't fall off. The smell is almost lightly nutty. The largest I saw were around 1-1 1/2 inches across with most being smaller. Next time I'll take something for scale so you can get a perspective.

I've been a mushroom gatherer for many years but haven't really figured out the "special" varieties that grow in the PNW. I have 12 acres in the country and a TON of them that I just couldn't get a positive ID on. My land grows Chanterelles, which is my favorite...although, after eating those yummy Lepiota Rhachodes last night with grilled beef...I may have a close runner up!

Thanks for any wisdom you can offer and thanks for creating this website. It's a good one. I read quite a bit last night and appreciate the wise advice regarding "trips" and proceeding cautiously in the beginning. I hope people heed that word and ease in to the experience if they choose to try that.

Yeah...I guess finding a ton of them today WOULD be just too easy huh!?!

The spore print is white...so on I go to continue looking for some of the real deal...now that I know where to go for help in identifying them.

Thanks!

Anyone else know the names of the other two???

I just found some Lepiotas growing near my apartment the other day. Not sure if they're rachodes or some other. They were still pretty young when I found them.

Oysters and Chantrelles are coming out in Bellevue.

BELLEVUE! Chanterelles??? Cool! I would have thought they'd all been bulldozed under with all of the buildings up there!

You find Oysters in town???

Can anyone help me identify the following I found in my backyard (north Seattle)? I just want to make sure they aren't bad for my cat or something. She tends to hunt some types of mushrooms cause she likes they way they bounce. They were all found in grass/moss.

First One:


Second One:


Third One:


Thanks so much.

^^^ 2nd and 3rd look like aminitas. I dont know what species but there is a good chance that it is poisonous.
