Bluing mushrooms, possibly a Gymnopilus spp (PICS)
    #717837 - 07/02/02 12:20 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Found some mushrooms today while browsing the blueberry patch at my property. The blueberries are about done for the year, but there are mushrooms growing all over the blueberry patch under the bushes. I found about 5 bluing mushrooms that appear to be some type of Gymnopilus. My question is which species of Gym is it, or is it even a gym at all. I suspect they are active, not only because of the bluing but because the smell, I swear I can smell magic, and these are very magic smelling

Maybe a new bluing species of Gymnopilus?? Anyone have any ideas?

















LK,

Gymno's have rusty orange spore prints.

It is either Lactarius deliciosus, an edible species...or a gymnopilus..not sure which one. For Lactarius it will have a yellowish, creamy sporeprint and gymnopolis well you know...orange rusty brown. Nice pics LK, and some beautiful mushrooms.

Cheers

I don't think there is a such thing as a gilled bolete, is there? Its not a lactarius, I am certain of that. Good guesses though, anyone else have an idea? It definitely blues, its not a green or a green blue, its blue, and like I said it has that "smell" about it that peaks my interest.

I've always been under the understanding that if it has gills and stains blue its active. I don't go by this as a sure fire rule though, and these mushrooms do have a suspicious look about 'em, I wouldn't eat them just because of the blue stains. But it does seem likely these could be psilocybin/cin active. They have the scaley cap like a gymno, the size and stature of a gymno?

while jims are sposed to grow in my area i have yet to identify one. lactarius are so named because they exude a milky substance, since i see no evidence of this, it rules these out. spore print color?

i'm allways leary of non-purplish sporeprints. there are several genera that have active members with non-purple prints, but they are difficult to ident to species without microscopic exam. I too was to believe that bluing gilled mushrooms are all active. see if a chunk turns rapidly blue with hydrogen peroxide in a blender. the oxeygen from the peroxide reacts with psilocin and gives a quick cheap and fairly reliable indication. there may be an exception, but i don't know of one that turns blue-jenes-blue in peroxide and is not active amoung gilled mushrooms.

Yerah LK it may very well be a gilled bolete, if you rule this out then it is gymnopilus. Look up phylloporus rhodoxanthus..this one looks like yours, and is edible.

Cheers

Now that is an ID I'll go with, you nailed it Saint! I never thought there was a such thing as a gilled bolete, learn something new about mushrooms all the time This is the first gilled blue stainer that I have found that wasn';t magic, a great find nonetheless! One to keep in my archives for show and tell in future discusions!

Had I thumbed through the good ole Audubon a few more pages I would have identified it myself, oh well, everyone needs a hand every now and again Thanks for the help everyone!


LK,

I knew that gyms didn't stain so intense or rapid, which is why I asked in my original post whether or not it was even a gym at all.
