help on id of these shrooms
    #3271741 - 10/24/04 04:36 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I just picked a whole bunch of cyans(I think) but do not have pictures of them. I am about 85% sure they are true cyans. Heres my description
-The caps are an orangish brown. They are lighter on the outside, then get dark, then lighter around the center, and the middle is a darker round circle.Some of them are wavy, although some are barley at all. There are little bumps on them, especially in the center dark brown spot.
-The stems are brown, but get pretty light up near the cap. Near the top they have a little ring around them.
-The gills are white with some orange streaks
- The diamiter ranges from around and inch and half(the smaller ones) to my biggest which is about 5 inches,which is my biggest one. Any help is appreciated. I am also sure I can answer any questions you have about them, sorry I dont have pictures. :mushroom2:

You need pics before anyone can ID. Go to kinkos or something because your description cannot be validated responsibly by anyone here. What you describe may be gallerina. Is there blueing?

Firstly, the stems wouldnt be brown at all, and the gills would be cinnamon colored rather than white. Also, you wouldn't have any that are 5 inches across. Cyans rarely much darker in the center and don't have little bumps on the caps.

I know that cyans grow in the area that you were looking, but maybe they were picked over when you went there.

I will try to get some pictures. I am pretty sure they are cyans, I mean they look just like most the pictures in the cyan thread, and they were all growing on wood.

Thats true, I can't be 100% sure without a picture. Get one if possible.

Do they bruise blue at all, they should. And 5 inches you say? They are around 1 and a half to 5 cm. Gills are brown not white, and the stem is a dirty white or just plain white. I think you should post some habitat info because from what I'm reading I'm 85% sure they are not true cyans.  :rolleyes:

Does anyone know where to find a pic of some gallerinas so I can make sure? I'm starting to think they are. Good thing I hav'nt eaten any, although I'm very dissapointed.
