Possible Gym? plus others
    #963223 - 10/15/02 03:59 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Just back from another day of hunting. Have 4 pics here...first one I found a lot of these little guys growing from a fallen tree, very slimy, some had lime green gills. The second pic is of some strange mushrooms I found growing on a stump in my front yard.

These last two are the ones I'm most interested in...are they gyms of some sort? Found about 15 of them growing in a small area of rotting trees/leaves. My hands still stink from carrying this one back. Smells like dirty socks/piney. No bruising is obvious. Thanks!

Something about that mushroom just says it's not a gym. I'm thinking maybe some kind of Paxillus(some are dangerously poisonous) or maybe some kind of Lactarius(Edible and poisonous I believe). Either way, none of the mushrooms you found are active :frown:
Nice pics though :smile:

Thanks for the quick reply! My hands still smell from these big guys hehe. I still haven't found an active shroom but will keep posting my finds just to share the pics!

the first pic is mysterious.
the second seems to be some kind of pleurotus, maybe.
did it smell good? was there a bit of decaying wood there?
the last two photos resemble russula more than anything, although lactarius and russula are very similar in appearance. if they stink so much i would say russula, of which there are several with names like foetidus that describe there stinkyness. they can be slimy in youth, too.
as to species, boy, that one would be kinda difficult, being that thee are so many russulas and they are sometimes distinguished by habitat and micro characteristics. i migt say fragricans or foetidus. but those would be guesses.
good luck
peace.

For the first ones, a spore print would point us in the right direction.

The second ones we need to see the underside of.

The third one looks like it's probably a Lactarius. Try cutting it in half vertically and letting us know what it looks like inside. Also, cut across the gills with your knife and tell us if some juice oozes out (if so, tell us what color it is and watch to see if it changes color in a few minutes or stains the flesh around the wound).

Interesting finds.

Happy mushrooming!
