Can someone help ID these?
    #3293552 - 10/29/04 01:54 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)





I found these along with 2 more amanitas today in a local park.

The one on the left was found growing in scattered patches under sorted oak trees. It smells a little sweeter than other mushrooms I've collected and has purple gills.

The other one was growing pretty close to the 1st one and I only saw one clump of these. The top is really sticky and it has yellow pores instead of gills.

Both were found in NW South Carolina. I'm taking prints of them now.

The one with purple gills looks like Laccaria ochropurpurea, they are edible and in my opinion very flavorful, though a little tough. If you plan to eat them be sure to check for a white spore print. Some poisonous species of Cortinarius closely resemble them but drop brown spores.

The one on the right is a bolete. There are several different genera of 'Boletes' and loads of species. Some are poisonous, some are edible, and none are known to be active. An accurate ID will require a close up photo of stem and a better description.

Please supply all the info requested here when when making an ID request.

Although I see the resemblance of the purple gilled one to Laccaria, I'd like to have a spore print color before I'd commit to an ID. It also has a resemblance to several Lepista species, and the mention of a sweet odor is also suggestive.

The fact that the bolete has a sticky cap is suggestive that is from the genus Suillus, although shroomydan is exactly correct that we need to see the stem in detail to get started. Boletes are one of the safer groups of mushrooms for eating. All poisonous boletes bruise blue, have red or orange tubes (or tube mouths), or both. That still leaves several boletes that are inedible because they are bitter or peppery, but none of the others are known to be dangerously toxic.

Happy mushrooming!

well...I went to get the stem this morning to take a picture of it and couldn't find the box I had it in. Then I faintly remembered seeing it go on the fire last night when one of my drunk friends was running around the house burning everything he could get his hands on. so unfortunately I won't be able to get a picture of the stem or an ID for that matter.

The one with the purple gills dropped a white spore print.
