  1. Today
  2. Hi there, These sprouted up overnight in a garden bed and I have never seen these before. Located in central Florida. Very curious what they are if anyone knows.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Actually, I wondered about that last photo. Are those the ones that did not stain blue? As for toxicity within the red/yellow boletes. There are a few species that have bad reputation. Boletus miniato-olivaceus is a common species up here in the NE that is considered to be a sickener. Also, B. sensibilis has a bad reputation, and this species is similar in appearance/staining to B. patrioticus. The only species of red/yellow bolete that I eat is Baorangia bicolor (formerly Boletus bicolor). Even this species can be tricky to distinguish for some of the others. So, I only use them when I'm confident about the ID. For the non-stainer maybe Aureoboletus gentils. This is a European species, but it has been reported from FL https://mushroomobserver.org/136820?q=p6Ta .
  5. So... Upon further inspection I have at least two different species of bolete that all look very similar. One does happen to be the B. Patrioticus. It has the 'sour' taste, slight red in the cap and the meat bruised blue immediately. I have another one that I cut yesterday and is currently still yellow, no bruising. I suppose a better question would be is there any dangerous look a likes to a red and yellow bolete? Thanks once again for all of your help Dave.
  6. Probably not an Oyster Mushroom. The dark tinge seen on the gills suggest these are species of Crepidotus, a brown-spored mushroom. Did you obtain a spore print?
  7. Species of Agaricus; looks like one of the species in the A. campestris complex. Spore print will be dark brown. It's difficult to assess the gill attachment from the photo. Agaricus species have gills that are not attached to the stalk ("free" gills). Calocybe gambosa is a white mushroom, white gills, white spores. Gill attachment for C. gambosa is said to be sinuate, which means the gills are attached to the stalk very thinly, possibly as thin as a thread. Distinguishing free gills from sinuate gills can be tricky, as attached gills can break away from the stalk, creating the false impression that the gills are free.
  8. Either Polyporus brumalis, or another similar species of Polyporus.
  9. These are a species of Psathyrella. One difference between Pstahyrella and Agrocybe is that Psathyrella mushrooms are much more fragile/crumbly. Spore print colors are also different for the two genera; Psathyrella prints are dark purplish-brown (or pink for the P. conissans types). Agrocybe mushrooms have cigar-brown prints, no purple tint. There are lots of different species of Psathyrella. Here's one example http://www.mushroomexpert.com/psathyrella_pseudovernalis.html .
  10. Found a new batch of these growing out of a tree, I’m pretty sure they are golden oysters I hear all about. Gills going straight to the base just want to check with my first wild spotting
  11. I was hoping for St,George but the gills are darker. I am doing a spore for the I.d, but they were beside an active road so not going to consume
  12. I think I’ve also found these before in #3
  13. Found a cluster of these, I kinda they they are close or are Agrocybe pediades like I found in #6.
  14. I think these may be Boletus patrioticus https://mushroomobserver.org/observer/observation_search?pattern=boletus+patrioticus . This species is found throughout most of SE NA, north to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Interestingly, I haven't found any confirmed reports of this mushroom in FL. However, here's an old FL post from WM that may also represent B. patrioticus
  15. Pores bruise blue rather quickly. Cap and stalk bruise slowly. The 'meat' of the mushroom still hasn't bruised, approx 4hrs after cutting. SLIGHT red hue/markings on the stalk. Caps are various shades of red. Central Florida.
  16. Last week
  17. This may be a species of Termitomyces, a type of "termite hill mushroom." Any other details? Rings on the stalks? Spore print color? Are the dark specks on the caps form the mushrooms or are they soil?
  18. I think so, bobby. Another trait to note is that in most cases the amerirubescens types have non-striate cap margin, as is seen in your specimen and in each of eat-bolete's photos.
  19. i found this shroom that sprung in a hole it was a cluster the cap was like 6 to 8 inches here in the Philippines
  20. This looks like A amerirubescens. The stem enlarged toward the base without veil remnants. It had some reddish staining in the stem. It was in oaks at north park. Yesterday. amerirubescens?
  21. Looks like a species of Panaeolus, or possibly Hypholoma. We don't discuss psychoactive mushrooms at this site. You may find some online help at Shroomery.
  22. Hey guys was just wondering if these are psychoactive?
  23. Likely either a species of Psilocybe or one of the blue-staining Panaeolus species. Looks more like a Panaeolus to me, and the spore print appears to be pure black (which is actually best evaluated by collecting the print on a non-absorbent black surface). I have no information about the possible toxicity of the Asian species of these types. Information such as this is best discussed (online) at Shroomery.
  24. Congrats:) haven’t seen such bounty in a long time.
