Help needed please
    #3212828 - 10/04/04 08:24 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hi, new here and wondered if someone would help clarify this specimen for me. I think it's a Magpie Ink Cap but not 100% sure due to the colouration and texture of this.



Thanks in anticipation, Ian

Mr Ivi,

I took the photograph yesterday and can prove it by sending the original! I title all my work and before I upload the image on to my site, I wanted the specimen's identity confirming before making a fool of myself within the fungi world!

Ian

To be honest, the picture looks more like an unopened parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota Procera) to me.

Cheers

Nick

Edit: but don't eat it until you've gone through the ID procedure.

Okay, here's the original image (I don't particularly like posting my work without my copyright on it) - do you have any idea as to what it is, I'd much appreciate your help.

Could be any of the various Lepotias. Could be edible, could be poisonous, could be deadly. I'm not sure how to ID these mushrooms but ToxicMan should be able to help out.

I agree that it looks like a Lepiota, but I don't think we can say much more without more information. Did you try cutting it in half vertically to see the color changes inside? How big is it? Habitat?

Immature mushrooms are often difficult to identify accurately.

Happy mushrooming!

Hi ToxicMan,

No, I didn't cut it vertically because had I been the next photographer coming along I'd have been rather annoyed if someone had cut it in half! [;)]

Its habitat? It was growing in quite dense grass under the shelter of several different species of trees but was nowhere near any tree trunks or rotting wood. I'd say it stood at around 7-8" tall. Not sure if this information helps but thanks for taking the time to help out.

Ian
