Weilli? please help
    #3303518 - 11/01/04 04:56 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hi I live in GA and im new to Mushroom hunting, and i decided to go out tonight to find some weilli's in my neighborhood. i did find one patch of what i think are weilli...

Description:
Caps: brown to dark brown on top. seems to have a dark blue/purple underside. (currently doing sporeprint)

Stems: i found 1 out of the 7 with a tall, very thin, white stem that bruises blue. the rest of them are about as thick as my pinky finger and also bruise blue.

Smell: they have the "crayon" smell described in an earlyer post.


there is one problem though, in gumby's description of weilli's, it says that the caps are "wax" looking. the mushrooms i found have all the characteristics of a weilli. (cept the pending sporeprint) and the fact that the top of the caps have a very soft almost furry feeling to them. i am just new to this recreation and want to do it the right way and not kill myself. any help would be greatly appriciated.

thank you,
ReefaMan

ps. sorry no camera.  :frown:

Looks like you found a common lookalike. The furry caps are not weilii but are sometimes mistaken for them.

I was chased by haitians in the main city charlotte amalie when my girlfriend and I got some cocaine for free in a bar and mixed it with alcohol, to form a stronger drug. With such confidence at 2am, we walked the 4-5 or so miles down to the beach where the african slaves lie like lions waiting on tourist prey.

If they bruised blueish green then maybe you found both an imposter and a weilii. What color was the cap? Did the stems break easily or are they more like rubber when bent?

My guess is that the spore print you take will come out almost jet black. You say the mushrooms have a furry cap, that is one of the main characteristics of weilii's most common look-a-like: Psathyrella velutina.

I made a post a while back about how to tell the difference between these and weilii:

Gumby is right, as soon as I saw fuzzy cap I thought Veluntina's... you know, I saw some of the LARGEST fruitings of those bad boys this weekend..

I came apon a patch and from 20 feet my heart jumped because I thought I found the motherload of weilii!!

But then as I got closer I realized I had been tricked.. oh well : )

Good luck... Vels mean the weilii are close by( most of the time) !!!

Yeah, I was duped by those damn velutina a few times this past weekend. I saw my first fairy ring of velutina... wished I would have brought a cam.

Yes, most cube growth has slowed dramatically. And if you're north of I-20 you probably won't even find cubes in the summer. They don't normaly grow too far north of 20 because of the elevation/temp change.

ya you posted to a thread that was almost 4 years old.

I know you haven't posted in this forum for over a year, but try not to do that.  You'll confuse the hell out of the old people.  Some of them have Alzheimer's, ya know?
