Mushroom Monday - Night Finds
Here are a few night finds for this #mushroommonday
Look at these strange nipples. The brown cap with a nipple in the middle is a good sign its a deer mushroom.
I flipped one over to check the gills and they are slightly pink another sign its a deer mushroom aka Pluteus cervinus. These were growing from wood chips another good indicator its a deer mushroom. I've read they are edible but I've never tried them.
Here are some unidentified amanita/agaricus species growing next to the deer mushrooms.
When I flipped one over it had white gills and a stem ring with a slight bulb at the stem. Thus I think this is a type of amanita, not quite sure which one it is though.
Now for some strange polypores. This one looks like it was growing out of the roots of a spruce tree. Perhaps the spruce will be how I can identify it later.
This looks like an older version of the same polypore. I thought it might be a northern tooth but alas it has no teeth so it still remains a mystery.
In the morning I found a huge motherload of ink caps.
They kind of resemble older mica caps.
Most ink caps have darkish gray gills and many are edible but will give you a stomach ache if you eat them and drink alcohol.
That's all for now, thanks for looking :-)
