Identifying Giant Mushrooms
    #800529 - 08/06/02 06:13 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

So i drive past this field everyday, and i?ve been seeing these giants mushrooms in the field from the road. I tell my friends and we go pick them. It?s a field that possibly cows but definitely goats have been grazing. We?ve been getting a LOT of rain lately with very warm muggy afternoons.The mushrooms were picked from the ground and they grew individually in the grassy field. The stems have bruised a dark purplish color. The large ones have a cap of 6.5 inches in diameter and are 8 inches long. The smallest one has a cap 2.5 inches inches in diameter and 5 inches long. They have a ring around the stem and the gills have begun to turn a bluish color. The cap is as soft as a pillow and they have the most pungent smell similar to magic mushrooms that I have seenl. Everything they are kept around just reeks. Should my friends and i eat these things?

For future reference, why particularly would you say they are not active?
Thanks for the comment

Nice pics - too bad the mushrooms are a bit old.

At first I was thinking they were Agaricus, but I couldn't make it fit, quite. After some more thought, I'm very sure that these are Chlorophyllum molybdites. Close examination of the photo of the gills seems to show that they are a dark, dingy, greenish gray color (where they are not discolored by a blue mold). The appearance of the rings on the stems, as well as the bruising of the stems and and the habitat have convinced me.

Extremely poisonous, nasty. Do not eat! You probably wouldn't die - you'd just wish you could so it would end.

Happy mushrooming!

Even if they were active, you'd probably get sick from them anyway from the way they were improperly stored. Next time, post fresh mushroom pictures. Dry them with a good technique and store...

Yup, it is as Toxic Man says. They are Morgan's leiota otherwise known as 'green gills' and Chlorophyllum molybdites. They will put you in the hospital. THis is the number accidently eater for P. cubensis inthe state of Florida .

. Avoid at all costs. nj
