Help identify these
    #5955747 - 08/12/06 07:10 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,

I need your help identifying the following mushroom species. All of these species are found in the southern part of the Sultanate of Oman, where that area is exposed to west-east monsoon that brings rain for almost 3 months and cools down temperature during summer months to 25ºC maximum and to 19ºC minimum in this subtropical area. These species are found only in woods during this period. Plz help.

#1




Habitat: found growing on termites colonies.
Gills: white in color, free gills.
Stem: White, enlarged at base.
Cap: Gray.
Spore print: could not get them
Bruising: No changes.
Location: the southern of Sultanate of Oman-Salalah

#2
IS THE FOLLOWING THE SAME SPECIES ABOVE?


Habitat: found growing on termites colonies.
Gills: !!
Stem: White, hard, enlarged at top.
Cap: Gray.
Spore print: could not get them
Bruising: No changes.
Location: the southern of Sultanate of Oman-Salalah


#3
from above:


from the bottom:

Habitat: found growing on the bottom of tree stems.
Gills: attached I suppose!.
Stem: it seems that there is no stem.
Cap: dark brown to black with orange color around the edge, bottom is brown.
Location: the southern of Sultanate of Oman-Salalah.

Really out of it, so just gonna be vague (genus, have to look into species).

#1 looks like some spcies of Clitocybe perhaps.

#2 might be the same species as #1, but if so, it would be a mutant. Probably not, but could be.

#3 is within a group of mushrooms called Polypores.

#1 looks like it had a rooting base and extended down into the termite colony. Given the habitat and general appearance I think you have a Termitomyces. If so, then it would produce a pinkish spore print.

#2 could be an aborted fruiting body. You should try cutting it open to see what the inside looks like. That should help tell you what it is.

#3, as CureCat said, is a polypore.

Happy mushrooming!
