Fur trees lone mushroom
    #463508 - 11/19/01 04:32 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

I don't post here, but I've taken to hiking daily around a lake here in the piedmont region of NC. I've always kept my eyes peeled for fungus and today I found a mushroom. It was all alone under a fir tree. The mushroom was not fragile at all. It was actually hard. The stem was about three inches tall and white with a 2 inch diameter cap. The gills were in a circular or radial pattern. Um, at the bottom of the stem there was a bulbous white mass. The cap was a orangish brown with some white in it.

I'm not looking to eat the mushroom, but I thought it would be neat to kinda have some idea of what it is. I'm taking a photo and I'll post it if the BB's software will take it in upload.

Oh, if it matters, the air and ground are bone dry. It has not rained in over a month. We are also experiencing abnormally warn weather for this time of year. Highs are in the upper 60's with lows in the 40's.

Yes! orange with white bumps. This software does not allow for my pics to be uploaded. I get a mac binary error. Oh well. Do they come out after a rain? It is supposed to rain (finally) tomorrow morning.

PGF,try to figure out a way to post a pic if you can.It's really hard to tell what any mushroom is from just a description.
I'm surprised you found any type of mushroom.Like you said,it's dry as hell in N.C. Even after we get some rain,I think it's still gonna be slim pickin's.The temperature is right,but it's just too damn dry.

doo

Welcome to the hunting forum PGF =)



Did it look similar to the mushrooms on the right?

Peace out,

That's exactly what it looked like Gumb! The big one on the right side. Is that amanita? COOL!!!!!

That is so neat! I'm stoked that I found it in the first place and then to identify it is just neat. Haha, cool.

Doo, this drought is getting old. The lake I walk around has several dry spots where you can see the bottom. The ground in most places in the forest is just hard as a rock. Are you piedmont or mountains or coastal? This has been the first and only mushroom I've found in the woods in the last two months. Usually those puffer balls are everywhere, but I haven't seen any.

What do you do with your amanitas gumby? I'm not looking to eat them at all. But, I would like to collect them, and if it's possible, maybe get toss them a little closer to my house under some furs and see if they come sporulate (sp?).

cool.
