  1. I was thinking that the small amounts of latex were due to the mushrooms being very dry, but you're definitely right that the latex would be leaving brown stains. Should have caught that. Definitely not L. corrigus
  2. I was thinking it looks like Leucoagaricus leucothites, but I can’t get past the dark edges of the gills. There also looks like dark colored dust on the stipe, that I was attributing to spores, otherwise I would have dismissed the discoloration of the gills more easily. What do you think is going on with the black/brown on the gill edges and on the stipe? Mold or something?
  3. Possibly L. corrigus It would be a lighter than usual color, but otherwise it matches well including the faint fishy odor
  4. Any notable smell? I'm thinking maybe one of the agaricus species that don't have a pink gill phase - A. augustus for example. It doesn't quite fit A. augustus because the cap isn't scaly I'm very interested. Those dark spores on white detached gills are an unusual sight for me. The only mushrooms I can think of with dark spores on sometimes white gills are agaricus. Can't wait to see where this one goes.
  5. You’re correct. Definitely not G. frondosa. I just saw these identified recently, but I’m drawing a blank. It will come back to me
  6. These are a cortinarius species. Definitely not G. marginita. Cortinarius is an extremely large genus that can be quite difficult to identify to the species. Some species of cortinarius are toxic.
  7. This mushroom was identified on another forum as B. chippewaensis and I immediately thought of this thread. It was identified by the same person who told me about the pink staining. He seems to be quite familiar with this species and I’ve seen enough of his identification to trust him. Looks very similar to me.
  8. Very cooI! I was having trouble finding that information
  9. Does P. ovoideocystidiata present with rhizomorphs on the base of the stem? I'm reading that this is a fairly unique characteristic
  10. Where are you located? These look to me Like Psilocybe azetecorum. If you are in an area that the occur, I'd say it fits. This is a low confidence proposal because the habitat isn't exactly correct. Any conifers around?
  11. I've seen someone point to similar staining on another forum as indication that the species was chippewaenis. I've also seen a post titled "the many looks of B. chippewaenis". There seems to be tons of variation in the cap and stem coloration.
  12. Some days it feels like every group is still being sorted out in North America. It's tempting to write the word "group" after most id's
  13. I am super curious about this lotion/compress that you intend to prepare. I've never heard of such a thing.
  14. Could this be B. chippewaensis? I think that would explain the staining beneath the cuticle
  15. Yes that is Grofola frondosa. Best way to cook is hard to say. They are a versatile mushroom. I've used them in dishes ranging from soup to pie and anything in between. Really any dish that prominently features store bought mushrooms can have G. frondosa substituted with superior results
  16. My print was even lighter brown than yours and had some white sections. I know mushrooms don’t have multiple spore colors, so the white parts must be closer to the true spore color, but I was still too nervous
  17. Looks like Leccinum scabrum to me. A very similar looking specimen was the first wild mushroom I foraged.
  18. For most boletes, the color of the pores is essential for identification. I can't tell what color the pore are from your photo
  19. I don't think this is a Russula. The rolled in margin on a mature species would be unusual for a Russula as would the brown gills. My best guess is this is a Cortinarius species, but that is low confidence. I'm thinking cort because I think the brown gills might be from rust colored spores and I've seen a lot of corts that look similar with a bulbous stipe base and in-rolled margin and the brown markings on the stem look like possibly a "ring zone" created by collapsing cortina remnants. Also that gill attachment, while possible in Russula, isn't typical. Curious why you say Russula? Your observations tend to be very astute and I'm wondering what you see that I don't.
  20. Certainly a Suillus species. Close up photos showing the stem and pore surface would be helpful. I’m thinking probably Suillus weaverae
  21. Really would need to see the gills, but omphalotus illudens is a good guess
  22. Amanita section validae I think
  23. This one looks like Chlorophyllum molybdites. A green spore print would confirm. Spore printing requires no setup. You just need to put the cap down on pretty much any surface and wait a few hours for the spores to fall
