Which Tricholoma?

Recommended Posts

photos 5(top mushroom), 6 and 7 might be a different species, it has a cap of different shade of brown (photo, left), it’s cap feels less dry, more slimy. Also the smell is mild, taste is pleasant, a bit sweet.

First 4 photos and photo 5 (bottom 2 mushrooms) : smell is strong, taste is quite strong too, with a bit of bitterness.

 

Spore printing both.

There are a few confusingly similar brown Trichs. They can be difficult to get to species, even with the help of a microscope. My first guess here would be T. vaccinum. If you can find a really young one, and you observe the remnants of a fleeting cortina --usually just a few whitish threads are visible-- then it's almost certainly T. vaccinum.

Hmm this is interesting.

Spore print attched. Mushrooms from photos 1-4 have white spore print as expected, while the latter one doesn’t seem to be Tricholoma species at all.

Wow! That one mushroom is doing a great imitation of a brown Trich! Is the brown-spored one the same as the one seen between your finger in the 7th photo down? Is this the one that smelled bad? Maybe a species of Inocybe. Or, possibly Hebeloma. My guess is Inocybe. If you have access to a microscope, then smash-mounting a bit of gill and viewing at 400x may provide enough info. Many types of Inocybe mushrooms have large hymenial cystidia with encrusted apices.

An excellent example here illustrating the difficulties associated with mushroom ID.

Not sure why photos uploaded in a different order I intended so all my references are wrong. 

Yes, the brown-spored one is on photo 7, also on 1, and top mushroom on photo 3.

The brown-spored one is the one that smelled mild and tasted pleasant, and had a bit slippery cap surface.

Unfortunately, no microscope atm, every penny goes towards getting a house :))

 

species of Inocybe sounds right. Here’s another photo of spore print (top) compared to that of Cortinarius (bottom)
