Mushroom Founf In RI - Weilli/Gyms?
    #4713851 - 09/26/05 01:46 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hi, This is my 1st/2nd post. I am becoming very intrested in mycology, and went on a Hunt a couple of days ago. After taking pictures, and doing as much research as I could, I still could not positively identify my finds. I also can not seem to find the paper bag containing the mushrooms. (although I still have the pictures). I actually don't have a spore print, unfortunately, but just wanted to see if anyone could shoot some ideas as to the species. The first picture is of a musky smelling mushroom with a round cap, broken veil, and somewhat hollow stem. Ive never seen any gill like it though. They are inverted into the cap and are extremely tight together. The second set of pictures were found in a large cluster next to a tree stump. They have large wavy caps, tanish white gills, and unhollow stems. All of these were found in a woodsy, humid rhode island swamp-land. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and hopefully providing me with any info

the first one may be an amanita muscaria var. formosa, maybe even an amanita gemmata...its hard to tell with the light but its probably muscaria...did you find them near a pine or birch tree?

don't know what the second mushrooms is
