Mushroom Hunt Results: ID's needed
    #925387 - 10/02/02 05:36 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Allright, i guess i'll just get right down to it :laugh:


All mushrooms were found in British Columbia, near the coast in old growth forest.

#1:

Found on dead coniferous trees
Whitish gills
4cm cap and 6cm stem 1-2cm thick
Solid white stem, no markings, rings or discolourations on stem.
Cap is reddish brown mostly flat with downturned edges.
No noticeable bruising of scent.
Grows singly

#2:

Found on the underside of a dead tree
Whitish partially/fully attached gills
2-5cm cap
8-10cm stem 1-2cm thick
Caps are brownish to light yellow at edge, almost bulbous sometimes. Noticeable brown, very short hair.
White turning brownish stem, noticeable green tinge at base
No noticeable bruising
Smells like grocery store mushrooms
Grow in groups of 6-20

#3:

Found growing on dead coniferous trees
Brown and golden yellow gills
4cm cap
5cm stem 1cm thick
Cap is golden yellow with a gradual nipple in the center, convex. definate stickyness
Stem is yellowish turning brown.
No noticeable smell
Grow in small groups/singly

#4:

Found growing in dead tree mulch
Brownish gills
4cm cap
3cm stem 1/2 cm thick
Cap is golden brown in the middle turning to yellow near edges. concave with wavy downturned edges. Slightly brown mottled.
Stem is thin and white with brownish hair/fibres on near the base.
No distinguishable smell
Grows singly



I know it's hard without pictures/spore prints, but rest assured i'm not planning on sampling any of these until i get definate verification on the species.

Any information you could give me regarding what to look/check for on these shrooms in order to help further identify them would also be useful, and i'll be checking back often.

Thanks to all who help in advance.

The ones with the grocery store scent appear to be bruising bluish/greenish on the stems of the ones that were handled.

That's a nice start on the descriptions, especially the notes on habitat. Here's a couple more things which will help a great deal.

First, get spore prints and let us know what color they are. Make sure you have a heavy enough deposit to get a good idea of the color of the spores in aggregate.

Next, cut a specimen (or 2) or each collection in half vertically. Let us know about gill attachment (free, adnexed, decurrent). Note if the stems are solid or hollow (if hollow it may be stuffed with pith - let us know that, too). Use the edge of your knife and scrape the inside of the stem (especially near the base) and watch for a few minutes for any color changes (bruising). This is also a good time to verify any scents which the crushed flesh might emit.

In particular the spore print color will be important to at least tell us what genus these belong to.

Happy mushrooming!
