Lone mushroom found - ID help needed
    #3986126 - 03/29/05 06:27 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I found a single mushroom yesterday growing under gum trees on the North coast of NSW Australia. I can't remember if it was growing out of the ground or possibly in the fallen bark of the tree.

This mushroom is unlike any I have ever come across.
The cap is heavily bruised purple and the stem is bruised a vivid pink colour!

The cap is around 8 cm in diamter and the gills are a creamy white colour and attached to the stem.
I was contemplating eating it due to the blue/purple of the cap but the pink stem kind of made me wary...

thanks in advance for any help guys. I wish I could get a picture up.

Be very cautious as to what you consider eating. Severe illness or even death could result. Just going by a bruising reaction is not enough for identification. Check out the guidelines sticky post for more details about the information that we need to be able to start the ID process.

please do not eat this mushroom.

do as eris said: at least post a proper description /or some pictures.
It doesn't sound active, and eating it would be a foolish gamble.
