Inky Cap? Safe? (With Photo)
    #4146507 - 05/07/05 03:07 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Take note of the mushroom on the left (a normal shroom from the same cake) and then the two mushrooms on the right.

Is this inky cap, or bacterial blotch and are they safe to eat? It is not a spore drop because there were no shrooms above them.

The black coloration washed off and I currently have them drying. But I will trash them if anyone feels they may cause illness.

I would say they are safe to eat, but I have to disagree, I think that that is a spore deposit. Spores are extremely light and will follow even the smallest airflow upwards, so there does not have to be a cap straight above to give a spore deposit. You often get wavy patterns of spores in this case.
