Need ID Help...have pics
    #3469530 - 12/09/04 10:37 AM (12 years, 2 days ago)

The species I'm going for is Gymnopilus spectabilis but this is my first go at shroom hunting so I'm probably way off. Any help at all would be appreciated. Alright heres the description and pics:

habitat - northeast ohio, found on a decaying log
stem - hollow, seems to get darker towards bottom

I'm pretty sure the pics answer the rest.

Those are deadly Galerinas. They are extremely abundant in Ohio this time of year.


[Galerina autumnalis]

These are active Gyms from Ohio. Note that they are larger and more colorful with meatier flesh.



Galerina can also be distinguished from Gymnopilus by spore color, smell, and taste.

Those are deadly shrooms as Shroomey Dan has indicated. Try not to rubn your fingers in your eyes when handling thsese shrooms. He posted some good images of the Gyms in his response to you.

have a shroomy day and good luck.
