Anyone know what these are?

These just started popping yesterday. This makes the third year they have come up in my yard. They will eventually open up and have small scales on the caps. I think I know what they are, but could someone help me out?

Thanks!

Scott

Re: Anyone know what these are?

That is what I was thinking. Here is another picture I took today.

Re: Anyone know what these are?

This is the last picture I could get. I tried to wait til it matured and opened, but the leopard slugs got it and cut it off at the stem last night (even though I pulled one off about 10:30 when I was looking for night crawlers!)

Is this a shaggy parasol? That was my thought, anyway.

Thanks!

Isn't it awfully early for shaggy parasols? I found the ones I had last year in the fall. I think it looks more like a shaggy mane. Do a spore print if you are thinking about eating it, and I find it helpful to look up any lookalikes too, for comparison.

Since you said they are growing in your yard, and are not near any Pine such as Blue Spruce or such. I'd say they are Chlorophyllum molybdites. They look too young to get a spore print, but if you could, it would show green spores. If they were Chlorophyllum rachodes, which was Macrolepiota rochodes, and was also Lepiota rachodes ,they would have white spores. But most often these are associated with pine.

Re: Anyone know what these are?

They are in the yard, but around 10 foot tall white pine about 10-12 feet away. They have only been in those areas the past 3 years. I was planning to take a spore print when it opened, but those stupid slugs wouldn't wait! There are 4 or 5 more. Hopefully they will get big enough!

Also, the last 2 years these haven't started coming up til the mid to end of July.

If it is a shaggy mane it will decompose rather quickly.

If it is a shaggy parasol it will have a white spore print when it opens.

Beware of green spore print!

The usual time to find shaggy parasols is in late summer or early fall. However, they do sometimes have two flushes. I have had one flush in early June and another in September.

I will post a photo of shaggys in various stages of growth.

These are very tasty mushrooms.

These are Shaggy Parasols from under a spruce tree. Notice how some of the smaller ones have smooth brown caps. At this stage they do not look like shaggys. The brown starts to crack as they mature and leaves markings on the mostly off white caps of mature specimens.

I have found them in May September and November.

Re: Anyone know what these are?

Thanks. I have been trying to get a spore print, but the first one didn't work - too young when the slug "decapitated" it!

I just picked another today that has opened up. Hopefully over the next few days I'll be able to see something.
