  1. Last week
  2. I just ran across something that reminded me of this discussion. https://www.mycoquebec.org/bas.php?trie=L&l=l&nom=Leucocoprinus ianthinus / Lรฉpiote violette&tag=Leucocoprinus ianthinus&gro=12
  3. I think more information would be needed in order to arrive at reasonable ID proposals for these mushrooms. Knowing the habitat, the spore print color, and probably some microscopic features would be desirable. I don't see any blue or green staining on these, so Hypholoma, Leratiomyces, or maybe Psathyrella seem like better candidates for the correct genus than does Psilocybe. We don't typically don't discuss psychoactive fungi here on this website. You're better off using the online discussion board at Shroomery. But, here are a couple suggestions applicable to mushroom ID in general. Take photos outdoors in natural light, but neither in direct sunlight nor heavy shade. Indoor lighting, flash photography, or use of things like flashlights tends to alter color. Also, when harvesting mushrooms for the purpose of discussing ID, extract the entire fruit body from the substrate. Sometimes, seeing the base of the stalk is useful.
  4. Found many of these growing and thought they looked similar to some magic shrooms Iโ€™ve seen in the past. What say you? TY
  5. The genus Phylloporus consists of species commonly called "Gilled Boletes." As suggested by the questioning, this is basically an oxymoron. So, what's up with that? Phylloporus mushrooms have fertile surface consisting of gills (except near where the gills reach the stalk they are often somewhat poroid). DNA supports the idea that Phylloporus belongs within the family Boletaceae. But, this placement predates the use of genetics to classify fungi. Except for the presence of gills, Phylloporus mushrooms morphologically and microscopically resemble other types of boletes. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/phylloporus_rhodoxanthus.html According to my understanding, mushnoobs photos do not show any species of Phylloporus. The second photo down does somewhat resemble a Gilled Bolete, but it has a partial veil. As far as I know, there are no North American species of Phylloporus that feature a partial veil.
  6. What is your reason for calling these gilled mushrooms boletes? Boletes are generally pored, not gilled. There are rare exceptions, but why assume a rare exception when you don't know? There may be some confusion underlying your question.
  7. It's a puffball, likely a species of genus Lycoperdon, genus Calvatia, or genus Bovista. The shape reminds me of Lycoperdon or Calvatia; the smooth outer skin points toward Bovista. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/bovista_longispora.html http://www.mushroomexpert.com/lycoperdon_caudatum.html http://www.mushroomexpert.com/calvatia_cyathiformis.html The flesh in the basal portion is probably less dense and I'm guessing this is what looks like pores to you. This is also a trait of Lycoperdon or Calvatia. If you allow one of these to mature in-situ --and if the weather cooperates-- eventually the inside will turn to spore dust; yellow, brown, olive-brown, or in the case of Calvatia cyathiformis grayish-purple. A hole or holes will develop along the apex and the mature spores are ejected when any pressure --eg. falling raindrops-- is applied.
  8. I just sent a PM to you via wildmushroomhunting.org.
  9. Looks like puffball to me. I do not see anything else. Stem and top are made from different tissues. Top - spore producing material and bottom is for support
  10. Yet another one. Now I've seen about 4 of them. Puffball ? Please say yes I want to eat this thing ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I just realized, it has that little... Skin around it.. And the stem seems to have pores looking at the cross section. Maybe not a puffball ?
  11. That would be really interesting, thank you for your help, Dave. I'd be happy to send some your way. What would be the best way to do that?
  12. I think these may be a species of Tubaria. This large genus --globally, lots of species-- is seemingly represented by only a handful of species in North America. Tubaria mushrooms are generally fairly small. The "vibrant orange" spore color mentioned here is not much different than the typically yellow/ocher prints of the Tubaria I commonly see here in eastern NA (presumably mostly T. furfuracea). Online photos of Tubaria pallidispora look similar to the mushrooms seen here. My guess is that species of fungi native to southern Utah are not well-understood. Nice find! Hego, if you can dehydrate a few of these and mail the material to me, I may be able to get it sequenced (DNA). It would be very interesting to find out what species these represent.
  13. Earlier
  14. Very interesting! Orange spore print suggests genus Gymnopilus. But, no species names come to mind. And the "Gymnopilus" suggestion is not made with much confidence, just an idea. I'll re-visit this.
  15. Species of Phylloporus do not have partial veil. So, no they are not (you mean the first photo I assume).
  16. I haven't seen the beetles in Pleurocybella. The gills are kinda shallow on those, maybe not deep enough for the beetles' liking.
  17. I think the white polypores may be a species of Trametes, maybe T. pubescens. I also see some Hypholoma mushrooms, possibly more than one species.
  18. These are some mushroom that began growing in a set of raspberry starts I got from a relative in southern Utah. I've looked through and can't find anything like them, granted I'm just taking my first steps into Mushrooms. The caps and stems are a dark violet that lighten as the age. When the mushroom spores the caps The gills start an almost dandelion yellow that grows into an orange color as it matures. When the mushrooms spores it is a vibrant orange color. Any guesses as to what it is?
  19. Thanks Dave, you don't think the 'bolete' could be Phylloporus rhodoxanthus? I can take a spore print, won't be eating due to buggyness. Delciosi sounds tasty but it smelled unappetizing. I had only planned to post about the gilled "boletes" but started getting evidence the scaly one was Lepiota and got a bit concerned about handling it so much so wanted to get some other input and now that I have it I'll probably never make the mistake of handling an unknown mushroom again! Thanks again.
  20. I need a microscope. I did a spore print on the greyish-green ones and it came back white. I also really need to learn my trees better. That seems like the best way to id these oysters. There was a bunch of little black beatles in them too so I know thats a good sign. Do the beatles also eat and live in Pleurocybella porrigens? I couldn't find much on this online.
  21. Guttation or weeping is the only thing I know about the process.
  22. Several different mushrooms; a few photos show more than one species. Potential for a confusing discussion. Best to feature one type of mushroom per discussion. But, I do believe the small scaly one represents a species of Lepiota. The first/second photos (mushrooms with stalks thickened below and partial veils), maybe either genus Armillaria or genus Gymnopilus; knowing spore print color would help. The mushrooms with decurrent gills... maybe a species of Lactarius section Deliciosi. It is ill-advised to judge the potential edibility of a mushroom based upon how it smells (unless this is one feature among several that confidently support an ID proposal).
  23. Sorry for the picture ordering... Redwood forest northern Californi,a a mile from the ocean, 1st, 2nd, 4th picthose bolete looking mushrooms are about the tastiest smelling shrooms I've ever sniffed, and the slugs sure seem to love them, but gills? Second smaller mushroom in 3rdand 5th pic found growing alone in a clayish road cut, wish I hadn't been touching and smelling it if it is a Lepiota sp... Would feel better if it isn't. 3rd/5th picture larger multicolored mushroom I have no clue, growing in solitary but near others near a swampy creek, just got it inthe shots with the questionable Lepiota. Any thoughts? Curious if a delicious smelling mushroom turns out to be actually edible. Smells reminscant of chicken of the woods.
  24. Hi, sorry again about the bad photos. They definitely have white flesh interior, and grow single. I'll try and get some better pics I'm convinced it's a chanterelle friends have been eating them for weeks now.
  25. Few top pictures are really cool. What is the term for mushroom sap/dew like secretion?
  26. I agree, species of Armillaria, aka. Honey Mushrooms, Popinkis (based upon a Polish name), Opiata (based upon a Russian name).
  27. Yup, the polypores seen in the first several photos are Ischnoderma resinosum. Also seen in subsequent photos are a species of Coprinellus section Micacei (aka. Mica Caps). I think the white polypores are a species of Trametes, maybe T. pubescens or T. gibbosa. I also see some photos of at least one species of Hypholoma.
