A Kinda Witch Capped Musrhoom
    #3369743 - 11/16/04 06:18 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Okay, there were two of these mushrooms. At first i thought they were P. baeocystis until I picked them and looked at them. The caps were similar to baeos but were more pointed on the top like a witches cap.

But they were blue-black completely on the caps. Even the 2nd smaller one looked like a baeo. But only for a moment.

I personally have never seen this shroom before, at least in this condition. Maybe seen or knew of it in fresh condition, but then itr was actually pretty solid healthy shroom. At least physically it was strong.

As for descriptions, the shape is all I can give. I did manage to photograph them from the bottom. The smaller one had a redish tinge over part of the blue-black color of the of the cap. The stems, mostly bluish-black except for yellow going up the stem and again a little reddish color.

The cap of the large mushroom which had both an umbo and pleates on the sides of the cap, was bluish underneath.

So If anyone has seen them let me know. They were in mulch bed on campus at Seattle U.

Check them Out.

Remember that I am five feet above the shroom so I was thinking I found a baeo, which I have picked a few thousand of those in my life. When I got closer I realized it was not a baeo once i turned it over.

The image of the larger first specimen is about 3 inches in height.



This second specimens was about 2 and 1/4 inches in height.

This cap shape was most awesome. I espied it when peeking inbetween the bushes to take a picture of the first one above.



Now here is the surprise. after i lifted them out of the ground to check underneath, I saw the yellow of the stem.



Well thats it for this post.

I will await the responses.

They sure were purdy. Also Sorry about the blurred first image. I cannot believe I took that picture. I was so sure, but I had to lay down on the sidewalk where students were passing by.

looks like the cap was origonally a dark orange color. I'm think its a Witch's hat (Hygrocybe conica) like you mentioned. They do get bluish blackish sometimes, but not usually like that!

Very cool. My first thought is that they fit the general description of the genus Leptonia. Many Leptonias are deep purplish or bluish in color. If they are, then they should have pink to salmon colored spore prints.

Happy mushrooming!
