TN Mushroom, LOTZ, no ID (*PICS*)
    #972198 - 10/18/02 02:23 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I was walking in my yard today looking for anything new since the rain left. Well I seen some white mushrooms growing at the foot of my driveway but I have not made it down that far walking yet to pick them or to try and ID them. I have been looking all over the net to try and find a list of species that grow in TN and other states that are around me, but have only found one on the forum and just about 5 species listed. So I just wanted to post this one up to get its ID.

FOUND: in short grass, about 15 feet from a walnut tree
COLOR: cream with white gills, the other that is not as mature has a cream like edge and has a gray like center with white gills.
CAP: the one that is less mature does not have a wavy cap, but the mature one does, self explainatory I guess?














Anyway, when the upload limit lets me upload more, I will have more pictures. They are more mushrooms then the two that I picked, I would say around 40. I am not wanting to eat them or anything, just wondering the species... Thankz, laterzz

here i go again.
i'm gonna say lepista nuda (=clitocybe)
found onm grass. purplish. mostly equal stem.
light gills and no dark spores...i forget what color exactly, but light and creamy something.
i like the blewit alot, so maybe i'm biased.
if you are interested in edibles, whicjh i'm hoping everyone is, you should either examine some descriptions of this mushroom, or pick some more and post pics.
very few mushrooms have that appearance (the texture of the stipe is blewit-like. the stauture seems right. the fading of the cap from puyrplish to golden hues.)
cortinarius looks superficially similar, and if the gills were brown, and the spores were rusty, i'd say corts.
please reply with spore print color and any other details.
look here:

before you decide based on one picture, consider the term morphology.
peace

hey, thanks for the reply. I am mostly interested in the hobby of just seeing what I can find. I like hunting, just seeing any kind of mushroom is a gift to me.. hehe.. anyways, Lepista nuda looks like the same mushroom, just not the same colors. Like you said, its a white / cream color, but the pic on the like you give me looks more of a brown color. Your right about the equal stem, all of them are equal. I am going to try and get more pictures of more tomorrow. The reason of the out of focus pic, is due to me being in a hurry. I found them about 15 min before I went to work, and was like "I HAVE to get this posted before I go to work" so you could say I was in a hurry. I dont really get much time anymore to look, but I do every chance I get, even if I am with my girlfriend at her friends house (in which I dont like) I will walk outside to "smoke a cig" and will start looking in the flower bed and in the wood chips.. hehe... I dont know I guess I'm just weird..






notice in the two pics that it has a grey like center, but white gills.. maybe these two have dont lost their spores? I would say the viel has been broke for days, but tonight I am doing a spore print anyways to see... I will post more pictures tomorrow.

I am going hunting in the TN woods (which go on forever and ever) tomorrow armed with my SONY cam... so I am going to tape everything I find. We have had ALOT of rain from SC, NC, GA, FL.. so I am sure alot of lost spores from those states are here? Just wanna find something new =) hehe

Thanks for the help, and keep watching for more stuff!! Thanks for the help.. laterzz

It's probably not a blewit, the stem is too long in relation to the cap. It may be Laccaria. Laccaria ochropurpurea which grows in eastern woods has fooled me, twice I thought it was a blewit. L. ochropurpuera however has a tougher longer stem and lacks the citrus smell of blewits. The first time it fooled me I had not seen a blewit before. My wife took some of the spore print and checked it out under a mycroscope: the spores had spines . The second time I just really wanted it to be a blewit it was in July, way to early.
