*** Warning ***

I wrestled with the option of whether or not to try to identify and place names to my fungus images.  The study of fungi is done by specialists known as a "mycologists" who have many years of education and specialize in identification.  There are many techniques used to identify a mushroom and it simply cannot be done by visual inspection alone.  Incorrectly identifying a mushroom can have deadly consequences if eaten.

While I have tried to link images with fungus names, I am but a lay person and have used books and images to try to look up, categorize and name the species.  My identification should in no way be relied upon and may be completely inaccurate!

There are many toxic mushroom "look-alikes"  that resemble edible ones.  You should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES  rely up on any of these images to identify edible, toxic or medicinal organisms/plants.  Some mushrooms and fungi are DEADLY  poisonous and their effects do not show up until it is too late to save yourself.  YOU alone are responsible for properly identifying any mushrooms that you may be interested in.  I have attached names to images which I merely THINK resemble the species.

I am grateful for corrections to taxonomic determinations, please contact me at FreeTiiuPix 

 

Agaricus arvensis 
[The Horse Mushroom]

Agaricus arvensis is commonly known as "The Horse Mushroom" although it doesn't really have anything to do with horses.  Perhaps because of its size?  Some very large specimens can be found!

This species fruits alone or in groups on grassy areas during the very late summer and fall.  Caps are white or pale yellow and 7-20 cm wide.  They are convex at first and become flattened as they age.  The cap will bruise yellow.

Gills are free and at first a white colour then becoming a flesh-coloured pink and finally become brown with age.

Long stems 7-25 cm, have a hanging veil.  Specimens younger than the one I have photographed below may have a denser, fuzzy looking veil with a pebbly surface.

Agaricus campestris, the "Meadow Mushroom" looks similar in appearance but is not as large as A. arvensis.  It begins fruiting as early as July.

Fabulous Fungi

 

 

"The world depends 
on fungi, 
because they are 
major players in the
cycling of materials 
and energy 
around the world."

~ E.O. Wilson ~

 

 

 

"I thought a forest 
was made up 
entirely of trees, 
but now I know 
that the foundation 
lies below ground,
in the fungi."

~ Derrick Jensen ~

 

 

 

 

"Falling in love 
is like 
eating mushrooms, 
you never know 
if it's the real thing 
until it's too late."

~ Bill Balance ~
