Possible Gymnopilus luteoviridis or another gymn species? ID help

Recommended Posts

Possibly a species of Gymnopilus. Also, Pholiota and Flammula are possibilities. Spore print looks a little dark brown for Gymnopilus (although I am not familiar with G. luteoviridis). Gymnopilus spore prints I have observed are rusty orange to rusty brown. To confidently distinguish Gymnopilus from the other similar genera, microscopic analysis of spores is recommended.

They were rusty brown on the prints I should have used foil instead of white paper but I also didn't take the print until they had started drying so that made it a little darker than you for the help

Just happened to look again at the bottom two photos. Looks like there's several different types of mushrooms.

We don't discuss psychoactive properties of mushrooms on this website. There are other websites where this topic is up front.

The purple mushrooms look like Laccaria amethystina. I'm not familiar with the name "velvet milk cap". Do you know the species? They look like Lactarius chelidonium or maybe L. subpurpureus.
