    #945564 - 10/09/02 01:58 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

While walking in the woods around Athens, GA. i came across what seems to be P. Weilii. I collected over 300 of these, but i need some help on identifying them. They were found mostly underneath oak and pine trees. Brown caps, white stem immediately staining blue. THe gills at the time of picking turned purple, but after drying and sitting around they turned rusty brown. And the presence of the bluing reaction now looks purplish-red. NO veil was present. DOes anyone know of any mushies with this description that stain, that are poisionous? Thanks. Pictures coming soon.

How about the smell? The smell of weiliis is how I always identify them, their smell is very distinct. It's nothing like any other mushroom I've found before. Take a spore print of them, it should come out brownish purple.

Another thing: Check for presence of a pericle by breaking the cap. If you break the cap slowly and the broken part back towards the center of the cap, there should be a transparent membrane over the cap.

where'd the pics go "coming soon"
waiting.
you said rusty brown about the gills, that worries me.
rusty brown is NEVER good.
post pics please.
sounds like you might have something interesting.
did you make a print?
make a print.
if you picked three hundred cortinarius mushrooms and helped to disperse their spores all over the place that would be silly.
when you say theybruise blue, how blue?
and what do you mean the gills "turned purple"?
please folloew up on this.

these are definately not corts man. the gills looked purple when i picked them, but during the process of drying, they look rusty brown now. In regards to the stem, it was very sensitive to touch. Anywhere it was touched stained blue. Not looked blue, bled blue. annulus and veil not present.

Based on your description, my first guess would be Cortinarius, too. If you say they aren't, OK. Other genera with rusty brown spore prints are Galerina, Pholiota, Inocybe, Phaeocollybia, Bolbitius, Conocybe, Gymnopilus, and Hebeloma. All of those genera (including Cortinarius) are noted for having inedible and poisonous mushrooms.

Could you give a more detailed description? We don't even know how big they are. Was there an odor? Were they slimy, moist, dry?


--------------------
Happy mushrooming!
