Sorry about the long load

http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/titan_113/detail?.dir=/1f2f&.dnm=d32d.jpg&.src=ph

Thats the link.
The biggest of the group is about 2 inches tall and there caps are not uniform. They are a yellow on the outside fading to a brownish orange on the inside. Some of them have a slight indent on the center of the cap. The underside is a pale yellow and the cap slightly inrolls over the gills just slightly, the gills seem adnexed. I am curently getting a spore print. Is there anything else i could list?, there is no viel, and it was found growing out of the roots of a Oak tree were they meet the ground. The flesh seems pretty solid. I was rather excited to come upon this ring of mushrooms, its quite a change of only seeing bracket fungi over the winter. Ther also my first mushroom iv picked that had a cap. Thanks.

Hello Re/aiir

I don't know for sure where you are at, but then I would give the same advice wherever you are. If you are serious about finding edible shrooms you need a minimum of three books that cover your area and/or an active membership in a mycological club that somehow has managed to keep its head out of its b---t.

For some reason those pics tell me Cortinarious species. When you get those good books I would start around there.

That species reminds me a little of Collybia Fusipes. Lets us know what the spore print colour is- that will aid in reducing the list of possible species.

Oh and welcome to the wonderful and mad world of Mycology.

I live in Pennslyvania, about an hour or so away from Philadelphia(south-eastern PA). I do have a book(Mushrooms by Htomas Laessoe and Gary lincoff, its one of those DK books). I also checked 2 other books out fo the school library. Hmm i looked up the Collybia Fusipes and its listed as being found in earope and not reported over here. But the description in my book is spot on with everything except for the Caps of the ones i found are more uniform and less eradic. But the cap is greasy when wet. Also the lower part of the stem is rather hard almost like wood, but from there on up it becomes softer and fibrous. I jsut checked the spore print, It is very white and there doestn seem to be any other tint to it. Woohoo well im off to school Laughing , wat fun. Cya!

Perhaps you could find out the address on the national mycology society over there and send them a dried specimen to have a look at.

Another possibility could be Oudemansiella Radicata

Iv looked through all my books and it seems that Collybia fusipes Matches up with everything...Minus I live in North America, is there any possiblity that what I have found is in fact Collybia Fusipes. Has something liek this ever happened before? The habitat right down to the cap dipping in towards the middle is the same.

Thats a link to a picture of Collybia fusipes so you can compare. If i was to send this to a Mycological Society should I include the spore print, also?

Hi there,
Well there is always the possibility of something new turning up- if you dont look, you dont find. Contact NAMA(http://www.namyco.org/contact.html) and ask them how you could go about sending a specimen for possible identification. If they do want a specimen, they'll want it dried- the microscopic characteristics will be preserved.

Chances are that its not Colllybia Fusipes and something else entirely. On the positive side, if they do accept a specimen and get it positively ID'd then that is another species that you will know.
