Little orange mushrooms, possible luteofolius?
    #3700623 - 01/30/05 02:05 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)






Hello, I'm a total noob and I've got no digital camera, just a scanner, so I apologize in advance for the horrible pictures. I will try to make up for it in description.

I'm pretty sure these aren't actives or even edible, but I've been curious about all these little orange mushrooms that keep popping up around here. I found some pics of Gymnopilus luteofolius and thought they looked very similar to what I have, but I also understand the west coast variety is different.

a. Habitat-
These samples were found on wood chips near Eucalyptus trees in the Monterey Bay area, California. I've also seen them growing in gardens and landscaping away from trees. They're pretty numerous and grow in clumps. It just rained alot these last weeks, as well.

b. Characteristics of the gills
They're pale orange and not attached to the stem.

c. Measurements of cap and stem.
The biggest one I found is about two inches across and the smaller ones are one inch. The stems are pretty short, about two inches, and about a half inch in diameter.

d. Characteristics of the stem
Very firm and woody, a little hollow, light orange and pale yellow streaks.

e. Characteristics of the cap
Dark orange at the edges fading to light orange in the center. Edges are wavy, probably from being bunched up together. Convex (that's without a depression, right?) round and no nipple. Not sticky at all, very smooth and sort of hard.

f. Spore print color

Rusty orange (see picture)

g. Color that the mushroom bruises
After a day or so I can't see any bruising.

h. Scent of mushroom
Very strong earthy and mushroomy smell.

I know gyms are very hard to id so I'm not expecting to be able to eat these, but I'm just curious and hoping somebody has seen them. Thanks for putting up with the noob, and let me know if you need more info.

Nice post Holly.

It would help to see how the gills are attached to the stem. To show this cut a mushroom in half, starting at the cap and down through the stem. You said they were not attached, but I suspect they are not totally free.

Another thing we need to know about is the veil which covers the gills on young specimens. Is it there at all? Is it solid or more like a spider web? Be sure to check a young one.

Gymnopilus is a possibility, and so is Cortinarius.

I too have seen this beautiful fungi. There is a patch near in playground woodchips under a conifer. I think it may be the same as this: web page
I was thinking Cortinarius but then I noticed the Gymnopilus and its connection with wood chips. ?

Those look like a possiblility. The caps are a little lighter though. I'll have to go get a fresh sample before I can show you a cross section, mine are starting to get icky.
