Help with identification
    #4495952 - 08/04/05 06:29 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I found a small mushroom growing in my yard. I need help identifying it. I can't get any pictures, so I'll give a basic description. The cap is dark red. The underside is yellow, the gills almost look like a sponge. The stem is yellow, but turns to the same red as the cap at the base. It stains blue, very quickly, and very vividly. Found growing in the northeast part of Georgia. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've heard that when it turns blue, thats a good sign.

But, being as I'm no expert, don't have a picture to go by, and a general lack of information...I wouldn't go by what I said at all.

You might want to just steer clear of it, or wait til someone else can help you.

This should probably go in the hunting forum, but here is what I say.

It sounds like a Bolete to me. Boletes have spongyness instead of gills, and red caps are in this genus too. There is a good chance that it is poisonous.

*edit - and more info and a pic would be needed for an ID down to the species, but this sounds like a bolete to me.

Well, that doesn't sound active at all....sounds like you found some type of bolete.

but the best place for you to get an answer is in the hunting and gathering forum.

I don't think you need a certain amount of posts to view it, but I could be wrong.

If you can post in there.

You will need to post a pic of the mushroom, a pic of the cross section of the mushroom, picture of the gills, and possibly a spore print if possible. they will be able to give you a definate answer.

From your description, to me, it sounds like you found a bolete.

But never eat anything until you get a positive ID on it.

yea..wrong forum. you want the mushroom hunting forum. you're probably going to need to take a spore print if you dont have a picture. there's a sticky thread at the top of the forum, read that and it tells you want info is needed for it to be identified.
