    #3271991 - 10/24/04 05:34 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I have a few more mushrooms I would like help ID-ing. Not planning on consuming, just want to know what they might be. Here are the details (link to photos below):

~Found in N. Virginia
~Growing in border of flowerbed. 6 month old chipped wood mulch.
~Cap+stipe average 3" high
~Base of mushroom slightly bulb-like
~Average 1.5" across cap
~Small brown/amber scales on cap
~Gills white
~Mild pleasant "mushroom" smell
~spore print white

Exceeded my 24 hour photo upload limit, so pics can be found here. Sorry. :

looks almost like amanitas. i cant tell if those are remnants of the universal veil or not on the cap.

the vulva (bulb) makes me wonder though.

not hallucinogenic, if that's what you're shooting for.

Those are Armillarias, Honey Mushrooms. They are edible and in my opinion quite good. Yours appear to be the scaly variety which have been reported to cause stomach upset in some people. If you plan to eat them try a very small amount at first to make sure they agree with you.

Shroomydan has it. Those look like Honey Mushrooms. They are edible with caution (which means eat only a small amount the first time). Be sure you cook them thoroughly.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the help ID-ing these guys. :smile:







I double checked my field guides and everything matches.  Armillaria Mellea.

You guys know yer stuff! I decided to maybe try a few to toss in my morning omelettes.  Picked a few pounds and tossed them in the dehydrator.  Could have gathered 50 lbs, but I'm going to try a small quantity to see if they agree with me first.

I'll make sure thoroughly cook.  What is a good amount to test my tummy?

Toxic man recommends a 1/2 teaspoon of cooked mushrooms as a test.

See if it upsets your tummy or causes any GI problems.

That's what I do with new edibles.

Also keep some fresh in the frig in a paper bag (never plastic) so you can ID them if you have any problems.

I also go one step further and write the time I ate the test and how much I ate them on a notepad and leave it over the dish with any remaining cooked test mushrooms.

Have fun mushrooming!
