well its been raining for the last 2 days in Missouri and the forecast is rain for the next 2 days. i look in my lawn daily for mushrooms as they pop up everytime it rains this time of the year. well i found 2 today right near eachother but its blatantly evident that they are 2 diff species.
here's the pics
the pinkish cap one:
k this white/pinkish cap shroom i see quite often yet can never id. this one was over-mature and the cap had cracked into sections. the spore prints from these are usually pinkinsh/orangish. always solitary.
now here's the possible gymnopilus? (just an uneducated guess):
the above pic is of the gills, they seem to cruve down along the stem.
this last pic is of a small immature shroom that was connected at the base of the larger specimen.
i'm sure these arent active mushrooms, just be nice to know if they'd be worth culture as an edible species or for any novelty reasons.
i might send these off to one of the willing experts on this site to get id'ed.
well that depends on your definition of "interest". of drug use interest ... no. of mycological interest...yes.
the orangish (2nd shroom) one seems to be a Cantharellus species. i only say that because Cantharellus' have the same curving downward with stem type gills. this info thanks to GoKart. i looked up a few pics and they are very similiar.
there was actual a 4th find, however it wasnt much of a find considering i know its a P.Cubensis PESA. maybe cuz i "accidentally dropped a tiny bit of mycelium in a pot of jiffy-mix" in my yard;)
anyways i'll get better pics when my friend lets me borrow his digi-cam.
Plastic bags will rape your mushrooms. Try paper next time.
Wild mushrooms have the power to increase ones awareness of reality, promote critical thought on the ways of mankind, and encourage people to THINK!! THINK OUT OF THE BOX!! ..These are gifts given directly to you and me from the living soils of our planet, a road map provided by the Earth which may - or may not make possible for one to break the chains from evil powers in our world that have successfully immobilized the souls of masses, given the illusion of freedom, and repressed revolution of the human spirit - The tools provided by the Earth tell us to "WAKE UP! REMOVE YOUR MIND FROM THE DELUSIONAL BOX OF CONSUMERIST PROPAGANDA BULLSHIT, LIVE FREE, DEFY AUTHORITY! AND NEVER ABANDON THE QUEST FOR ULTIMATE TRUTH!"
upon further inspection of the possible Cantharellus i noticed the mycelium attached at the bottom of the stem has bruised a dark green. the smaller specimen also bruised green. if i'm correct , dont alot of "poisonous" (not the good kinda poisonous) bruise dark green or turn green when heated/cooked?
