Purty shrooms...im lost.
    #3377369 - 11/18/04 02:51 AM (12 years, 23 days ago)

Well ya'll, on my huge adventure today with ray to locate some cyans...in the wilderness  :shocked: which it seems we did..we also came across a ton of new mushrooms i havent seen in this area before, or for a while..here are two that..i couldnt find in my book. I think the first one is a russula, but the second one i found no comparison to over 700 pics in my audubon book =\ any ideas...was too small for a print, any other detail you can see in pic, was found on the edge of a golf course in a mix of manicured lawn/leaf debris. ~D

I think this is a rosy russula:


So pretty, but no clue:


I have so many pics, but most are 1.5-2mb file size and i dont have my good imaging software at the moment...so ill prob load more as time permits..thanks for any interest u have in my countless hours spent photographing :P ~D

The first pic only shows the cap surface but from what I can see, the cap shape seems typical for a russula. Identification to species is difficult.

Second one might be a hygrophorus/hygrocybe species, can't really say anything for sure.. spore print and detailed description would be helpful.

Keys to genera can be useful in narrowing down your searches, I would suggest trying that out before looking through photos, especially when a lot of mushrooms can resemble eachother in pictures.

Ya =\...more or less just wanted to show em to everyone hehe..the lower one was really magnificant in person, the gills are colored just like an apricot, and the stem was translucent/mango colored as u can see, but looked much more vibrant in real life. ~D

I agree with Eris, it's hygrophorus. According to Audubon I'd say it most closely resembles first, hygrophorus coccineus
and second, hyrgophorus conicus. Edible or possible poisonous...you make the call!

It doesn't appear to have any black bruising, so that rules out Hygrophorus conicus.

Hygrocybe miniata maybe. Were they growing in tufts?

Yea.. Looks like a Hygrocybe Miniata, almost identicle to the one in my book, wish I knew the habitat.

I stumbled across a miniatus last Sunday on the Eagle Creek trail on the Oregon side of the Columbia River gorge. Growing
right next to a footbridge in coniferous debris and small ferns. Also found hyrgophorus psittacinus, the "parrot"
mushroom on the same trail. Both gorgeous shrooms.

Keep in mind the genus hygrophorus is pretty large. Most field guides are far from complete and just list a few species here and there. Hygrophorus is divided into several genera mainly based on microscopic features, one being hygrocybe. Some species of the genus are edible but not many are rated as being good. One of my books describes at least 75 species. It provides a large key which is VERY difficult to follow. I plan on getting a book on just on the genus but it is hard to find, my order got canceled because the book was "out of print".

Ya I agree, I wish i had my paintshop pro and photoshop copies back...i spose i can just dl them again...but...dialup sucks =\ i miss my cable in eugene! hehe..

Not sure why i didnt take a pic of that lower one on the ground..i guess you spend 4 hours seeing 100-5,000 mushrooms and...even tho one stands out I dont think bout it sometimes... ~D
