I call it, "The Nipple Mushroom", any idea on what it is?
    #5129126 - 01/01/06 07:56 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

I find this mushroom everywhere in my area... regardless of season, temperature, or... well, anything. And I can't really find anything in any books that look quite like it. I know it's not active in any way, I'm just tryin' to get aquainted with all of the mushrooms in my area, so if any of you have an idea of what it is, that'd be awesome. =)

 

This is a picture of a bunch of 'em on a tree...


 

There's a closer picture of 'em...

Okay, lets see if I can post the info on this right...

Habitat: I found it growing on some sort of coniferous tree, not sure what kind... probably a pine, I'd assume. I have found very similar mushrooms growing out of the ground, though. Usually in groups. They were found in Maryland. Normally when I do find them growing out of the ground, it's very moist ground.

Gills: They're a brownish color... a picture of the gills will soon follow.

Stem: Hollow, slightly shorter than a smaller-size bic lighter(I didn't have a ruler handy), pretty thin.

Cap: About the size of a nickel(ditto on the having no ruler) But I have found them of all sizes, up to about the size of... well, a large nipple. They're also normally pretty moist.

Spore Print: White. Can't fill ya in on any microscopic features, due to lack of a microscope, though.

It doesn't bruise.

Scent: Mind you, I normally smell things differently than other people, but the smell kinda reminds me of a typical mushroom smell... and some of 'em(even from the same bunch), smells like fish.

Anyways, I also find another mushroom, or maybe the same mushroom during a different stage of development... only difference is the size of the cap, and the fact it has white gills. Here's a picture of it.


I find this particular kind hangin' around with the other kind almost all the time. That's the only reason I think it might be the same kind.

And here's a picture of their undersides...
 

THere's the white gilled one I described...

 

And there's a picture of them both. The first one(the really nipply lookin' one) on the left. And the white one is on the right.

Any help on identifyin' these would be appreciated. Thanks. :laugh: I'll probably have plenty more to bug you guys with when it warms up. ;D

As a note, I totally screwed up while tryin' to make this entry... I even missed a pic. I think I'm too lazy this moment to fix it, though. Sorry if it looks kinda funny. =P

Nice description, but the images are just showing up as little red X's.
Your profile indicates that you are from Maryland, which borders my state.. chances are that I find the same thing.
From your description, I can think of some good possibilities, but it would help to be able to see the pics.

Those look to be Mycenas. They are among the most important wood rotters in the forests.

Happy mushrooming!

I've searched around after you gave me the name for 'em... and I'm pretty sure that's what they are! Thanks a bunch. =)
