I was out hiking today with friends and came upon these two mushrooms. I took a couple rushed photos of the big fella which is about 7 inches across, very firm stock, appears somewhat off center. No annulus. I looked and looked for spectabilis last fall--just wondering if they could be growing on a rotting pine in the spring?

The small mushroom is about 1.5 inches in diameter. Spongy stipe. Cream gills. Could it be Lentinus edodes?
These could not be the same mushroom right?
Any ideas?




Wallace

Hi wallace,

I'm not sure what you have there, but it is not a Gymnopilus. You can find some species of Gyms in the spring. The earliest that I have found them is June. I imagine the further south you are, the earlier they will be.

Those are both in the group of genera near Lentinus. The first one looks like a young specimen of Lentinus ponderosus. The second one looks close to Lentinus edodes. They should both produce white spore prints.

Gymnopilus, of course, will produce orangish spore prints.

Happy mushrooming!

Be sure to take a look at my site with my possible gymnopilus spectabilis on it. Right here load twice if it doesn't work the first time. http://www.geocities.com/tampabayfinearts/shroomerypics.html

It's been determined that it's probably a different species yet hardly known.

Thanks ya'll

Thanks a lot for the help.
Actually when I reread my original message I realized it was not clear that it was the first mushroom that was the large one.
This was not the first time that I spied a mushroom and was absolutely convinced that I had spectabilis, and then even before I got home started having doubts. You would think I would know better. I have looked at the spectabilis photos a thousand times.

Here are a couple of near misses.
The first two photos I am not sure of.



The last two I am pretty sure are phaeolepiota aurea.




Anyone interested in taking a crack at the first one?
Thanks,
Wallace
