  1. Thanks Dave. I'll have to find another specimen for a spore print, since I tossed that one. But here is a zoomed in picture of the gills. They are attached to the stalk. It does look like Stropharia ambigua; and description of habitat (wood chips) fits. Stalk description matches. Will see about finding another one in the chips/bark mulch and will see if its purple-brown spores or not. thanks! -J The only thing that I question is the gill color. Mine is more creme in color..while most of the pictures of Stropharia ambigua on the inte
  2. Hi folks, Is this a death cap? It was growing (two side by side) on soil with some bark mulch among a mix of Doug fir and Maple. I have not taken a spore print. Thanks. -J
  3. Dave, chilly is all a matter of perspective as you East coast folks know 😀 Its 41F now with a low tonight of 32 in our area. We've had a stretch of 30-40 degree weather. This last week we got a warm spell at 60 with heavy rain because of this crazy weather from the South...but we are back to lows in the 30's and highs in the mid-40's to low 50's for the next few days. So not sure how we define 'warm weather' or 'cold weather' for this particular specie. -J
  4. Hi Dave. Thanks for the additional info. You are right on the 'pseudostem', all of them have that little bald area. They all seem to be fairly rubbery in texture too. I took a little bite to chew and spit out to see if it was bitter or not...but I don't taste any bitterness. Fairly mild taste to me... -J
  5. oh, so its not in the Pleurotus family? Any good method of preparing these? Seem like online comments are that it can be bitter? Thanks. -J
  6. Normally, I pick pearl and Pleurotus Pulmonarius in the backyard growing on dead alder trunks. But today I found this guy...much darker than I normally see...albeit its also much later in the fall than I normally see them. We've had some mild wetter weather as of late...but normally they are more pearl / Pleurotus ostreatus in color. Thoughts on what Pleurotus variety this might be? -J
  7. Pretty mushroom near a grove of Red Cedars in Western Oregon.Phenol odor. Didn't take a spore print. Other than missing the spore print for ID, looks pretty close to Agaricus Hondensis. Any thoughts on if this might be something else? Although Agaricus hondensis is poisonous, it sure is a pretty mushroom.
  8. Thanks Dave. The gills also (in the younger specimens) appear to be white, but when picked and handled, they turn pinkish-brown pretty quick...which appears to be another telltale sign of the P. cervinus, no?
  9. Thanks for the help on the ID. Sure was a pretty mushroom when first picked. -J
  10. Hi Dave. Sorry I didn't include that picture. Here is a picture with the stem attached. This is a sample of another mushroom that was part of the same group just a couple inches away.
  11. So here is a print after several hours. Its not really a pinkish tone....more dark creme to me with a hint of pink is what I'm seeing in the sample.
  12. Folks, Picked this one by itself among a DougFir / Red Cedar area. Nice earthy mushroom scent - but I don't smell the apricot odor I normally smell with yellow Chanterelles. Taking a spore sample now; will post a picture of that if I can get a good sample. It looks like it wants to be a White Chanterelle, but the veins don't quit look right to me. Look too much like gills to me... The more closely I look at this...and these are indeed gills...not veins/false gills like most Chanterelles. So its got to be
