Shroom Identification : HELP! :)
    #4720396 - 09/27/05 04:42 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys, I'm new to this site and I would appreciate some of your help to identify some shrooms I found :smile:!

  So I went for a walk with my new dog (YAY!) and passed thru some lawn owned by the city. Not really a city actually, more of a suburb... but anyways.
  So I was walking my dog. Lemme describe the area where I found my shrooms:
  it's grassy, besides a fence, and besides the fence there are some plants which are taller than the grass - and they have big leaves - and after the fence, below, there is a river. So basically the area is very natural and has humid aspects due to the river. ALSO, it rained like a motherphuk yesterday... to add to the humidity factor.

  As I was walking I realize there was a small patch of shrooms on the grass besides the higher plants. There were maybe around 7 of them, but I chose the 4 nicest looking ones and brought them home. First thing I did was a spore print - still doing so, the cap has been sitting for about 30 mins. I put the other 3 shrooms in the freezer to preserve them.

  Me and my friend are fascinated with shroom hunting. We go once in a while, but I'm not a shroom-eater or anything... just yet. Out of the couple of times we went hunting, I never saw a shroom that looked quite like these ones.

  Okay enough bla bla... lemme post some pics I took with my crappy webcam.











Alright. Now for a TYPED description.

COLOR (outside): beige pretty much everywhere.

COLOR (inside - gills): brown. Milk chocolate brown. UPDATE: I cut the cap open to realize how the color of the gills shift. The closer you get to the cap, looking at the gills, the more light colored they get. It shifts from chocolate milk brown to light beige. Also, if I remove the gills, the under-cap is also very light beige, much lighter than the outter color of the cap.

STEM: about 4/10 of a centimeter wide.

CAP: 2 centimeter diameter. Very half-circly. (It SORT OF has a tiny TINY connicle shape, like not as much as a liberty cap, but you can see it has a SMALL nipple-like tip... ish.)

BOTTOM OF CAP: I mean the area where the outter cap meets with outter gills... when analyzed, it seems like it has very VERY small hair, as if it had super duper small jagged edges. Very hard to explain.

SCENT: Exactly like the white mushrooms we buy at the local food store. AKA your local pizza store mushrooms.

BRUISING: Well, I messed around with the cap from the spore print and all that I've realized is that the color sleightly shifted to a kind of darker beige/brown (the whole cap). Nothing turned blue. Nothing real different though...


SPORE PRINTS:






The spore print is definately cloudy black and cloudy light & dark brown. The light black cloudy areas of the print have distinctive gill traces, whereas the cloudy brown areas seem like brown dried up liquid.

Anyways, all help is appreciated, and I hope you guys know what this shroom is :smile:!

THANKS!!! :laugh:

I think that is some sort of Psatherella. Non-Edible and probably harmful.

Wait for some more posts. I could be wrong. There are some pretty damn Myco-Intelligent folks in this Forum.

As you probably know, there are alot of harmful mushrooms. So don't eat anything, unless you have a 100% positive edible ID.

Pretty good Description, there. Someone will probably tell you exactly what it is.

I'm not a "revisionist" I'm someone who thinks being historically accurate is more important than being politically correct.
I'm not a "climate-denier" or "anti-vaxxer", I'm someone who actually looked at the science and considers the official views to be very questionable.
I'm not "anti-semitic" because I question the Israeli rich elite's role in our government.
I'm not a "pervert", I'm someone who questions the purpose of the religious institutions forcing their sexual pseudo-morality on the masses, and not following it themselves.
Being a "skeptic" in america has come to mean regurgitating a certain set of preordained "correct" views, without questioning them. I reject this absolutely.

Wellaxer. When I started mushrooms hunting. I had a state of mind like yours.

I would say to myself, "I'm gonna go mushrooms hunting."

"Yaaayyy," I would say, "Mushrooms are awwweessommme!!!"

But then, one day, I realized that I would never be a successful mushroom hunter, unless I knew what I was hunting. So I went to the shroomery, and asked questions.

A very intellegent Moderator said to me, something along the lines of, "Say, Psiclops!!! Wouldn't it be grand if you did a tad bit of research??" I was all, "eh??? errr, I guess soo, drrr."

Then I did just that, Wellaxer.

Now, I know all the active mushroom in my region. It's great.

By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death."

It looks pretty similar to Psathyrella velutina to me. Not worth eating for any reason, but probably not poisonous.

Happy mushrooming!
