Shaggy Parasols (chlorophyllum rhacodes)
I brought a couple of these home around the time I was starting mushroom hunting thinking they were the edible Parasols (macrolepiota procera). Luckily, I grew suspicious at the red staining which occurred when I cut them, and after some research realised they were Shaggy Parasols, the look-a-like that can cause serious illness in some people. You can also distinguish these two mushrooms by the snakeskin pattern on parasol mushrooms, that doesn’t occur on shaggy parasols.
She found a home! Thank you so much! #mushrooms #danitaart #painting #watercolor
Plates from a German botanical textbook, Lehrbuch der praktischen Pflanzenkunde in Wort und Bild, published in the 1880′s. Scanned from the collection of Lloyd Library and Museum in Cincinnati, which features historic texts on medical botany, pharmacy, eclectic medicine, and horticulture.
On my way back from my oyster mushroom hunt I realized that I had also cosplayed as an oyster mushroom.
24 morel mushrooms found, though not all pictured lol. Finally got warm enough for them to start popping out. 🍄
