Help identifying
    #4560017 - 08/20/05 07:23 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I found this mushroom in my woods yesterday and I thought it might be a psychedelic one, but would rather be sure. Any help would be appreciated in identifying. Thanks.

yeah i would have to say its a russula also.. i know they can be found in ohio, and the northeast commonly.. a location on where u found this would be helpful also.. they are edible but i dont believe they are psychedelic and if they are they have a very low psycobin content.. hope this helps.. peace

I hope you didnt just pick a random mushroom out of the woods thinking it would be active, because i would have to tell you that you are very ignorant and need to do A LOT of research.
Otherwise, it looks remotely like Amanita muscaria, and i can see how someone new to mycology could confuse a bug ridden, red capped Russula with Amanita muscaria, as they both have white gills and red caps with white spots. Do a google search on Amanita muscaria and you'll see what i mean, but i dont recommend experimenting with Amanitas without some field experience because many deadly species are contained in the genus, and several poisonous mushrooms (including certain bug ridden russulas) resemble A. muscaria.

Also, you need to read the rules for the hunting forum.

sure looks like Emetic Russula to me too. def. noticibly diff. from an amanita. But i hear Russula are not to be eaten. they can make u very sick to ur stomach. Emetic means to induce vomiting ;x

There are many poisonous Russulas; you obviously don't know what your talking about.

Thanks for spreading misinformation, dumbass.

Please do not spread misinformation. Amanita Muscaria is edible and magical. You are correct about not eating what Rarbet has there, which is NOT an Amanita Muscaria. Do not eat it Rarbet.

You know, guys, guessing a Russula based on cap color and stem color doesn't work very well. Doing a quick check on Russula species with a red to pink cap and white stem I count 99 species that match.

Without a microscope identifying Russulas accurately to species is impossible. You can often make good educated guesses, but you can't really be certain without that microscope.

Happy mushrooming!
