russula growing on fallen log??
    #4296798 - 06/14/05 10:58 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

OK so it was raining beautifully today and as i hiked/pushed my way threw some crazy brush in a heavy downfall i came upon what at first i thought was an oyster... after getting closer i noticed it was indeed not anything like an oyster but a clearly defined cap/stem white gilled mushroom, and a very large one! so heres the description..

Location: fallen Maple branch
Cap: large 3" diameter, white at first turning yellow by the time i got home.. i swear i noticed frills at the end but they dont seem to be here anymore, they could have been damaged on the way home
Gills: Large, attached, distant, white
Sporeprint: white
stem: thick, 1/2" diameter white
flesh: white

sorry dont have a camera so no pics... working on keying it in right now, any help much appreciated.. thanks :smile:

Sounds like an aminita Consider it deadly until a professional gets in here , did you notice any bulb or a vulva at the base of it or left in the ground when you picked it ?
also does the stem go from fat at the base to skinny near the cap


--------------------

While i was in the grass, i picked them..

You need to post pictures of the mushroom before youll get much of an idea tho , thats just my opinion

Could be a Russla. I typically find Russla in the fall growing directly from the forest floor. Not sure if Russla grow from wood or not and I have no clue where my books are. Either way, I wouldn't mess with eating it.

Neither Russula nor Amanita grow directly from wood.

There are a few Russula species that grow from logs.

Look at the edges of the gills. Are they straight edged like most mushroom gills, or are they serrated?

If it's a Russula then the stem should break like chalk and not be fibrous.

Happy mushrooming!
