found mushroom
    #3968623 - 03/25/05 02:21 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

wus crackin
this old hippie i know found this mushroom in oakland, ca
it was lighter when it was fresher, but it was kind of dry when he gave it to me so im not sure about the color when it was fresh
here are some pictures



the spore print is purplish. the cap is tannish yellow. the stem was lighter and bruised brown. it was found in a rose bed after a couple days of 60 or so degree f weather. it had been raining a few days before the shroom was found, and had been raining for several days off and on. the stem was hollow when i broke it from the cap to get a spore print, and somewhat tough. it looks like there might have been a ring and spores might have fallen on the stem, but if there was a ring it fell off before the shroom came into my possession.

any help would be much appreciated. thanks.

What was it growing from?

My first thoughts are Agrocybe or Stropharia.

if your not able to ID it,throwing it out is about the best thing you can do,that or dry it and itll stay good forever until its later IDed.Im on the oppisite side of the country from you so other than that,im not familar with anything that grows wild in cali...wish i could be of more help,but drying it will preserve it and most alkaliods present if any.

Looks like Agrocybe or Stropharia to me too.

Throw it out, its worthless.

You gotta get some books and look around.Something probably grows there.The local library is an invaluable source of knowledge and information...study up on the subject and youll be rewarded=)
