ID Question
    #683487 - 06/17/02 10:27 AM (16 years, 11 days ago)

Went hunting today in a state park meadow; found a small patch of inocuous, ordinary meadow mushrooms, along with a very small cluster of extremely wavy capped mushrooms that were orange in color; not too bright, not too matte. They had thick, solid stems and did not bruise blue or any other color. Does anyone have any idea what these latter 'shrooms might be? I'm in Southern Connecticut.

Given that discription, its impossible to say. Could be one out fo a thousand. Pics are really the best way to get a mushroom identified.

I didn't think that was too harsh. I'm trying to be nice these days.

there is a very good possibility that you have some type of gallerina, and a zero possibility that you would want to eat this mushroom.

be more specific about habitat, taxonomy , and take a spore print.

We should make a post at the top of this forums on how to describe a mushroom that you want to ID... Pics are nice but mostly not enough.
- Does it have gills, pores, spines?
- Spore print color?
- Habitat (dung, soil, wood, what kind of trees and plants are in proximity)
- Gills color?
- Attachment of gills to stem (adnexed, free, decurrent) ?
- Stem color?
- Bluing reaction?
- Ring on stem?
- Volva at stem base?
etc.

Problem is not everyone (including me) knows how to describe the characteristics of fungi in mycospeak, well not without a decent book handy anyway.

Sure, but there are many online guides describing mushrooms pretty well, i think it's not that dificult if you take a look at the guide and at the same time make your own description, it's just lazyness or you don't know any online guide.
It's just pointless coming here saying that you saw an orange mushroom with wavy caps, without a pic and with that kind of descriptions is better not to post or ask for ID. Most common answer is "it's a mushroom".

Peace,
MAIA
