Unidentified Mushroom
    #3150187 - 09/17/04 11:54 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi;
I was wondering if anyone can identify the following mushrooms. I am from Southeast BC, Canada and found the mushrooms under conifers in the mountains this fall. They are 6-12" in diameter. I was wondering if they were edible or not.
Thanx in advance
Hawken

At a glance that looks like a Leucopaxillus. See if the gills peel easily from the underside of the cap. That's a fallible test that can help to identify them. Leucopaxillus are noted for being bitter or indigestible and therefore not worth eating.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanx for the help. I looked up Leucopaxillus and found it was that specie. In fact it is Leucopaxillus Giganteus. Not edible.
