  1. I am using a piece of printer paper, but my previous proposal for the color was wrong The print now appears to be white. I would say that after reading what you linked, your proposal is correct. Everything seems to line up correctly. Thanks
  2. There are mostly Oak trees around, I don't know why the mushroom wont drop spores. Ill keep trying, I might switch it for another and see if that one will yield a proper spore print. I have also upgraded to tin foil as that will hopefully yield a more precise color.
  3. I found these mushrooms growing in my yard. The cap has a brown burned look almost. The underside has gills with the cap and gills sorta curling and waving upwards. They were growing in the dirt. These mushrooms have a very sharp mushroom smell that is quite fragrant. No bruising seems to occur. The spore print is coming in, will probably post a picture later, but for now it appears to be a light olive greenish color.
  4. I found this rather large grouping of mushrooms the other day. The spot where they are yields many different fungi, so I wanted to find out what this kind was. It appears to have a light brownish cap and the underside seems to be pinkish. It has gill-like folds that don't seem to be decurrent. The folds meet with the cap surface at the margin. It was growing in a large spread cluster in dirt. It does not seem to bruise or change when damaged. Nothing particular to note about the smell. I have been trying to spore print it but i'm having trouble. The ones that I collected have dried out and changed to a very pale color, opposed to the brown they started out as Note that its been somewhat colder out now here in northern Florida.
  5. The arced one was attached to a decaying log, A large portion of the center was rotted out. Thanks
  6. Yes, The fungus was growing in a rough oval cluster, I think the tree may have been oak but im not sure, The pictures on the website that you linked look just like it too. The only thing that doesn't match up is the expected range, I guess it was a rare find?
  7. The pore surface has tiny pores. I thought turkey tail weren't this color, and were a lot smaller?
  8. I found these mushrooms growing on the side of an oak tree, I presume they are the same species by how similar they look, though they might not be. They both have a reddish cap with rings that can be grayish in some areas. The cap has a very firm woody texture as does the entire mushroom. The underside appears to be Polyporus and is also very firm. The underside is white. The underside bruises brown when pressure is applied. The mushroom smells like a regular mushroom.
  9. I found these white mushrooms growing on a tree in a cluster formation. The cap surface is white, kinda furry but almost spongy, very moist, If I squeeze the cap water comes out. The underside is probably the strangest part as I haven't seen a mushroom like it. It has long fibers almost like a toothbrush. Smells like a normal mushroom.
  10. I found these polypore mushrooms growing on some old oak logs. The mushrooms have colors in rings thought they definetly aren't Turkey Tail. Brown to tan. The caps are smooth yet rather rugged on some. The underside is white The mushrooms have a regular mushroom smell They were growing on the side of oak. It seems like they are the same species however, two individuals, pictured last, seem to have slightly different coloring and or ring formation.
  11. Ok, I'll stick with that then. Thanks.
  12. Thanks for the input. I would say that the spore print is a light-ish brown with very slight pinkish tinge. The only difference I see with the mushrooms that you have linked and the ones that I have is that the cap color seems to be different. The mushrooms that I have, have a sort of darker, roasted, look on some rims of the cap. The spore print color probably is a tiny bit darker than it is, due to the picture quality, and because, like in the earlier mushroom post, I did the print on paper so some of it might have added moisture to the print.
  13. Judging by the spore print here along with your description I would say that you are right, however, when I google Lepista nuda most of the pictures show a mushroom that does not appear to look even close to this one here. Most of the pictured Clitocybe/Lepista Nuda appear to have a purple gill underside, The mushrooms that I have here have a tan gill underside. There are some pictures that do show a somewhat similar mushroom to this as well, So I don't know what to think. (Now I know that this is not a very strong method of identification or comparison but its just food for thought.) Part of me also wants to say that they almost certaintly aren't wood blewits, but again I am not a mushroom expert by any means here. The new mushrooms (Lepista nuda) Do have a strong smell and the spore print appears to have a very slight pale-pink tinge, Though it probably wont show up in the picture. Id like to add that the Old mushrooms (Lepista Subconnexa) Looks more like lepista panaeolus, but again im no expert and probably wrong. From my knowledge wood blewits are a decent edible Are there any poisonous look alikes? How would I rule them out?
  14. I think so too, but the ones I just picked do have striking differences aswell, It could be a different genus, or maybe they were at different stages of growth?
  15. I just saw this fresh fruiting in a grass pile area of my yard that has yielded a suprising amount of fungi. They were growing in the same general area of a cluster of mushrooms that I had posted about earlier, though they appear to be a different kind of mushroom. ( ) Maybe this could be of some significance or help somehow, I don't know. The mushroom has a very smooth and firm cap texture. The cap is dark where it curls on the underside to meet the gills. It smells like a "normal" mushroom (like a portabello or something i guess) It is quite strong. The underside has gills that don't appear to be decurrent, they sorta stop a little bit away from the stipe on the younger ones. The gills are a light tan. To my knowledge no bruising has occurred. It was growing in the leaf litter/dirt, (I took a picture of the stipes post harvest) Spore print coming soon.
