rather large white mushroom
    #3152615 - 09/19/04 12:49 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi there.
Today, I stumbled upon the biggest wild mushroom I have ever seen (in my very short mushroom hunting carreer). The cap is dinner plate sized and the stipe is probably about an inch and a half in diameter. It was growing in leaf litter, not really near anything in particular. I did not pick it so there is no spore print, but the gills were white. Chances are the spores are white as well. Sorry, I don't have anything in the pic for size reference. I'll try and get back there and take another pic sometime tomorrow. I found a little puffball in the same area. It's a little bigger than a baseball.

enjoy.

Actually, I'll bet that the spores will be dark chocolate brown. White is not an unusual color for the young gills of an Agaricus, and that's what your mushroom looks like.

Happy mushrooming!

Toxicman, you are right of course. I found some smaller ones and took a spore print as well. They are a dark brown colour.
Is this mushroom edible??

That's a bit more difficult. Agaricus includes both edible and poisonous species.

Cut one of them in half vertically, then scrape th inside with your knife edge hard enough to bruise the flesh. Any color changes can take up to a hour.

We also need to know what they smell like. Try sniffing where the cap and stem join.

Happy mushrooming!

My buddies yard is full of these. The guy he rents from says that they're edible. He's eaten them a couple of times. I left one on my desk for a few days. It didn't smell too bad, but when I picked it up, the cap was covered in hundreds of little worms eating away at it.
