Sample ID request - READ BEFORE POSTING AN ID REQUEST! * 29
    #5731447 - 06/10/06 02:17 AM (16 years, 5 months ago)

For people who want to post ID requests in the Mushroom Hunting Forum, I created this simple template to help encourage beginners make ID requests as complete as possible. The more detailed your presentation is, the faster and more efficient response you will get.

This template is by no means as detailed as mushroom descriptions can be. Following this template will help you understand the basic information needed to begin the ID process.

Before looking at the samples below, I suggest you read these important tips for creating an ID request:

  • Only one species per picture. Things get confusing when there are multiple types of mushrooms in the same picture. It's OK to have multiple specimens of the same mushroom, as long as it is the same species. When hunting, it is good practice to store each collection individually - by species.

  • Label each species by number. Sometimes there will be multiple pictures of the same mushroom. Numbering them by type will really help avoid some possible confusion and make things a lot easier. For example - If you start with 5 pictures all containing the same type of mushroom, place it all under #1 and so on.

  • Spore print color is one of the most IMPORTANT features for identification. You MUST take one for all ID requests. It is getting tiresome to have to constantly tell people to take spore prints. For those who don't know how to do a spore print, see this document and this page

  • List general area. It's important to know what part of the world you are in, at least what country. Certain mushrooms only grow in certain areas, so listing a state or general area will be helpful. A specific location or city is not necessary (specific locations are against the rules), just list a general area.




    Three different species are displayed here.

    Species #1:





    Habitat: Wood - Found in deciduous woods, growing straight from a fallen rotting tree.

    Gills: The gill color varies from a white to a light pinkish color. The gills are free.

    Stem: Whitish, pretty fragile, slightly enlarged at base. 2cm wide.

    Cap: Brown to gray, smooth, not hygrophanous, 3-6 inches across.

    Spore print color: A light pink color.

    Bruising: No color change was observed.

    Location: North East Coast region of the USA.




    Species #2:





    Habitat: Found growing on the ground in a deciduous woods.

    Gills: White, with dark streaks - the black marks appeared to be a result of bruising.

    Stem: Yellow, sturdy, with black streaks/bruising.

    Cap: Yellow around the edges to orange in the middle and dark at the tip. Smooth, not viscid. No color change was observed in drying.

    Spore print: White.

    Bruising: Bruised black on the cap, stem, and gills.

    Location: North East Coast region of the USA.




    Species #3:



    Habitat: Found growing from a piece of deciduous wood.

    Gills: Dark brown, attached.

    Stem: White, fragile, hollow, breaking and splitting easily.

    Cap: Dark brown when moist, fading to a very light brown straw color as it dries (hygrophanous).

    Spore print: Dark brown.

    Bruising: No noticeable color changes from bruising.

    Location: North East Coast region of the USA.




    #1 is a Pluteus
    #2 is a Hygrocybe.
    #3 is a Psathyrella.

    Notice how clear and organized the above response is. There is no doubt about which mushrooms are being referred to.




    Here is a blank list of the basic requirements that you can copy/paste right into your post and fill in:
