Trying to ID pink spore mushroom to genus.
    #3157516 - 09/20/04 09:48 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I found these about a week ago, still trying to find out the genus. When i ran them through a key I end up with Clitopilus but i think that they also may be either Entoloma or Clitocybe. Kind of a toss up between those 3 for me.


warning: linked to high res image.


The caps on these are from 1-4 inches in diameter, the gills are attached to the stem, spore print pink or salmon, habitat is ground/clustered growth, location: northeast, cant get it to bruise.

Anyone want to take a shot at the genus or mabie even species?

I think I'll guess Rhodocybe.

The pink spored genera really haven't been studied as much as all the other kinds of gilled mushrooms, and there aren't keys for them that are anywhere near comparable. The result is that they are more difficult to identify than most other mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!

Oh, that is a useful bit of info. I didnt even see Rhodocybe in my key! I will check that out on the net. I see what you mean, I've been stumped by these mushrooms for a week and cant seem to find any complete info on the pink spore mushrooms. Everything seems to just list a few species here and there... thats all.

This is the best i could find for rhodocybe,(in limited searching) and its not even for north american species.

Of course, to make things even worse, the professional mycologists haven't really reached agreement on what genera there should be near Entoloma or how to decide which go where. Your books that don't mention Rhodocybe probably have those species rolled up into Clitopilus or Entoloma or something.

Happy mushrooming!
