Aureoboletus cramesinus (Secr.) Watling syn. Boletus cramesinus Secr. Kirschroter Goldr?hrling Aranyb?l?s? tin?ru Bolet cramoisy, C?pe sanguine Cap 2.5?5cm, ochraceous peach to dirty pink, viscid. Stem 50?80 x 5?10mm, more or less rooting, narrowing towards the pointed base, smooth and viscid, yellow at apex flushed reddish buff or pink towards the base. Flesh whitish often pinkish under cap disc and lemon-yellow over the tubes. Taste and smell pleasant. Tubes lemon-chrome then golden-yellow, unchanging on bruising. Pores similarly coloured. Spore print ochraceous buff. Spores subfusiform, 11?15 x 4.5?5.5?. Habitat in broad-leaved woods, occasionally on old bonfire sites. Season late summer to autumn. Rare. Edible. Found In Europe.
Armillaria ponderosa (Pk.) Sacc. New syn. Tricholoma magnivelare White Matsutake Cap 5-20cm across, convex becoming flatter with an inrolled, cottony margin becoming somewhat uplifted in age; white with flattened reddish-brownish scales and spots, particularly over the center; tacky becoming dry with streaks of brown fibers near the margin. Gills adnexed, crowded, narrow to broad; whitish staining pinkish brown. Stem 50-150 x 20-40mm, hard, firm; white becoming pinkish brown from scales and patches of veil remnants; white and cottony above the ring. Veil partial veil leaves thick, soft, membranous ring on the upper stalk. Flesh firm; white. Odor distinctly fragrant. Spores broadly ellipsoid to globose, smooth, nonamyloid, 5-7 x 4.5-5.5?. Deposit white. Habitat scattered to numerous under pine and in sandy soil, especially near coastal areas. Common. Found in northern North America and the Rockies. Season August-November (December-February in California). Edible-excellent. Comment. Known among Orientals as the White Matsutake. This is one of the most sought after edible mushrooms.
Amanita flavoconia Atkinson Yellow Patches Cap 3-7cm across, ovoid at first, then expanding to convex or flat with umbo; bright yellow to orange, with small bright yellow veil fragments loosely spread over surface; margin of cap without radial grooves. Gills free or slightly adnexed, crowded; white or with faint flush of yellow. Stem 50-100 X 5-15mm, white to yellow, with swollen basal bulb, covered on lower half with yellow floccose-crumbly veil fragments; with membranous white or yellow ring. Flesh white, unchanging. Odor slight, pleasant. Spores ovate-elliptic, smooth, amyloid, 7-8(9) x 4.5-5?. Deposit white. Habitat in mixed woods. Very common. Found in most of eastern North America. Season July-October. Edibility uncertain - best avoided. Comment Most likely to be confused with the much rarer Amanita frostiana, which differs in its striate cap margin, nonamyloid, globose spores, and often marginate basal bulb of stem. My third pictures shows a very white bleached form.
Amanita crocea (Qu?l.) K?hn. & Romagn. syn. A. vaginata var. crocea Qu?l. syn. Amanitopsis crocea (Qu?l.) Gilbert Orange Grisette Orangebrauner Scheidenstreifling, Falso farinaccio giallo, Narancssz?n? selyemgomba. Cap 4?10cm across, convex becoming flattened or turning up at margin, with a broad umbo, pale yellow orange or apricot at centre, paler towards the lined margin. Stem 100?150 x 10?20mm, gradually attenuated towards the apex, covered in silky or cottony tufts of the cap colour throughout the length, the non-bulbous base encased in a thick, persistent volva which is white on the outside and flushed with the cap colour on the interior surface, no ring. Flesh thin, white often pale orange below the cap cuticle. Smell sweet, taste sweet and nutty. Gills adnexed or free, cream. Spore print white. Spores subglobose, nonamyloid, 11?12.5 x 9?10?. Habitat amongst broadleaved trees especially birch. Season late summer to autumn. Occasional. Not known to be edible -best avoided. (Never eat any mushroom until you are certain it is edible as many are poisonous and some are deadly poisonous.) Found In Europe and north America from New York west to Colorado.
Agaricus crocopeplus Berk. & Broome Golden Fleece Mushroom Cap shield shaped 2-5cm across light orange-yellow colored with cottony tufts and patches, stronger orange than the cap surface. Stem .5 x 4cm, also with orange tufts, tapering to the base which has a small bulb, hollow, with a distinct ring. Gills free, darkening with spore deposit, rather mottled like the gills of a Stropharia. The spore print is dark brown. Not edible. Found on compost or leaf/bamboo litter. It has been also recorded from Africa, India and the Philippines.
Cap 10-20cm across, obtusely ovoid at first expanding convex, yellowish-brown covered in chestnut-brown fibrous scales. Stem 100-200 x 20-40mm, whitish with small scales below the ring which discolour brownish with age, bruising yellowish; ring white, large and pendulous. Flesh thick and white, becoming tinged reddish with age. Taste mushroomy, smell strongly of bitter almonds. Gills free, white at first then brown. Cheilocystidia formed of chains of bladder-shaped elements. Spore print purple brown. Habitat in coniferous and deciduous woods. Season late summer to autumn. Uncommon. Distribution, America and Europe. ---- The beautiful Agaricus augustus is considered by many to be the most delicious of the edible Agaricus species. It is a happy find for any mushroom hunter, although it is reported to be difficult to find them before the worms do! Like other Agaricus species, the Prince grows on rich organic substrate, often as a litter decomposer in nature. It is probably a secondary decomposer, which means that bacteria and other fungi have to break down raw materials before Agaricus can grow. On a commercial scale this is the process known as composting. The Prince can have caps about one foot (30 cm) in diameter, although many mycophagists prefer to eat them when unexpanded because of their better texture and odor. The gills turn chocolaty brown when the spores are mature. However, even somewhat expanded caps can show gills that are still white. The beautiful veil and scruffy to shaggy stem (at least when young) are also hallmarks of this species.
