A huge shroom with salmon gills
    #4005611 - 04/02/05 06:06 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I spotted these growing in the some 'duff' on the forest floor and picked them up because they looked so cool. They have been in the fridge two days since I was away from home and proper storage, and during this time the gills changed from the beautiful bright salmon pink they were to this brown/pink/white color. Any ideas? Edible is what I'm hoping for...

That looks like a species of Agaricus.. Some are edible, some poisonous. Check for a bruising reaction if they aren't too old. This is one important feature in the identification of species in that genus.

As eris suggested those are Agaricus.

Cut one of them in half vertically, then scrape the inside with your knife edge hard enough to bruise the tissue. Color changes can occur up to one hour after you bruise the mushroom.

Also, note the odor, particularly at the base of the stem and where the cap and stem join. If you can't detect any particular odor (or it just smells like earth), try crushing the base of the stem with your fingertips and sniffing there again.

Happy mushrooming!
