Some Help to ID please
    #4690823 - 09/21/05 05:39 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hello.

I am a newbie, both here and in shroom hunting.

Me and my girlfriend were walking around, and we found this, close to a tree where the ground was very humid.



I know it's hard to say anything, but just to have an idea.

Habitat: humid ground beside a very big tree, in south Brazil.
This bigger one was completely white, there were two others that were dead and getting into a dark brown collor.

Well, that's all I know. I didn't take it away from there.

Anything helps, just to have an idea.

Also, is there anything I can do to make some more grow or keep that one alive?

Thanks in advance.

Ah- it was dark and I couldn't take the flash down to help on the picture quality. I guess you can notice that- hehehe.

you can take a spore print, get the color, and that typically places it into a specific group, you could also attempt cloning the mushroom if you think it's worth it

Hello, and welcome to the shroomery! :laugh:

There are a few things you need to do to properly Identify this mushroom:
first,  describe  the mushroom in every bit of detail. then by taking a spore print.

If you are a newb like you say you are, it is highly recommended that you read every bit of info on this site.  a good place to start is HERE
especially the  Getting started section.

peace, and have fun!

Thanks everyone.

Well, not sure if it's supposed to be active, it was just there the way the picture shows.

How's the way to clone it? Can you point me straight to a good thread about it?

Thanks once again.

Why would you want to clone a random mushroom? Judging from that white cap there it kinda looks poisonous.

All that there is to really go on here is a white silhouette of a mushroom.. it vaguely resembles a lepiota (a genus unsafe for beginners), but could also belong to a number of other genera.
In the future, bring home specimens to identify. You can observe things and gather info about it that you may not have been able to notice in the field. (not to mention better pics)
Like the others mentioned, it doesn't resemble anything active. It doesn't really appear to be a worthwhile edible and probably is not worth the trouble of cloning. A way to go about that would be making a tissue culture on agar. Even then it may not even be a species that is reasonable or possible to cultivate.

Thank you for the answers again folks.

You know- I live in a very big city (Sao Paulo) and everything is so dirty that there's no way to find good stuff. I'll have to drive out the city to hunt in the weekends. I was just surprised by this thing when I saw it really clearly.

You know what my problem is? I wanna start doing shrooms, with my girlfriend, and that's the first time that I need to look for drugs, and not vice-versa. It's depressing me...
