So how much experience does it take to be able to ID mushrooms on sight?
    #4687043 - 09/20/05 07:45 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, I found these guys right next to a crabapple tree in central CT. There was a patch of a bunch of them, maybe 40 or 50, all cramped next to each other. The stems are about 3-4 inches and the caps are 1-1.5 inches, though most of them were a lot smaller. They're orangish-brown. The bottom of the stems are blusih-gray, but I don't think it's due to bruising because when I pinched the upper stem, I didn't see any change in color. The caps curve upward. There's no distinct aroma. There were a bunch of little off-white maggot type guys chilling in the gills. No spore print yet. Any knowledge of these is appreciated.







By the way, how long after a rain does it take for cubensis in manure to start to grow? It rained a few days in a row, like three days ago, and there weren't any growing yet two nights ago. I saw some pins, but honestly they might've just been undigested corn.

Good night

To id something like that? Too many years, sporeprint is crucial. There are many mushrooms that look like that ranging from poisonous to edible.
Cubes? in central CT?

The decurrent gills suggest that those are a species of Clitocybe. Several members of that genus contain high levels of muscarine, a very unpleasant although rarely fatal toxin. Identification of most Clitocybe species requires a microscope.

Happy mushrooming!

To me, they look like an old aged specimen of the ringless honey mushroom...typically grows in dense clusters and looks a lot like that when it gets old. I see them every fall.. they look exactly like that. I would bet the spore print comes out white.
I notice a green or sometimes blue hue to the stems of the ones i find around here for some reason.

its funny, i thought they looked like inocybes... but for the decurrent gills.

and the first thing that popped into my head was "inocybe decurrens"

but there is no such thing.

still tho, describing a mushroom in latin can sometimes give you the ID.

clitocybe decurrens would work, but be redundant...
as decurrent gills are a trait of the genus..
clitocybe clitocyboides is also a redundant name...

Clitocybe dealbata might be it,

but i think it looks a bit like the false chanterelle
hygrophoropsis aurantiaca.

as a (on sight) identification, that would be my guess.

That silky fibrillose cap really does suggest Inocybe, doesn't it? If it weren't for those gills I would have said the same thing.

It's nice to see somebody else who looks at a mushroom, makes up a name in Latin that describes it, then decides if maybe that's what it actually is. The mazing thing is how often that actually works!

Happy mushrooming!

That was the first thing I thought, too. But there are many look alikes.
Good discussion here, this should answer your question about on sight.

I can pretty much id most common Psilocybe species common to my area. It takes experience and hours of staring at a computer screen reading and looking at pics.

I can ID several hallucinogenics (if they are common locally) and maybe twenty or so edibles on sight, it took a couple years of obsessing (going out hunting for several hours every day during the weekends in fall for the past two years), but it was probably worth it, either that or I wasted a good portion of my time, but I'm of the first opinion

It doesn't take much time to get as good as I am.
