Fascinating Gilled Mushroom

Recommended Posts

Here's one...  The veil was stretchy and slimy.  It looked like it covered the entire cap, and down the stem.  The flesh and pores stained brown almost instantly when broken or damaged.

Yep.  Same mushroom.  Pics 3 and 4 were after I peeled away the covering / veil that covered most of the cap.  Pic 4 was after I'd snapped a couple of pieces off of the cap.  The flesh turned brown so fast, that I snapped a 2nd and 3rd piece off , and quickly took a photo to show the color of the flesh before and after staining.

Stumped by this one! The photos are good. Maybe someone on Mushroom Observer would have a suggestion? If you like , I could copy the photos and create an MO post.

Hi Dave.  This was found in north-eastern Illinois.  North-eastern Kane county in a hardwood forest to be exact... This was found stop a moraine hill surrounded by wetland on 3 sides...

Cool.  Thank you Dave!  I'm going to go back tomorrow in hopes that more have grown over the weekend.  It's been hot, humid, and rainy!  If I find any more, besides trying to get a spore print, should I do anything else?

This type seems pretty unusual to me. If you could dehydrate some, it may be of interest to someone.

Woohoo!  Thanks so much Dave!  As to edibility, other sites say, "you're on your own." I guess better safe than sorry.  I hope to find more though!
