    So... on my way to Ontario I stopped in Central / Northern Wisconsin for some mushroom hunting. And it was amazing! Such a cool place! So much diversity!

    Gymnopilus luteus!

    These were growing off of some kind of fallen hardwood and were very quick to bruise blue-green!!

    And now.... The REALLY fun stuff....

    These are a Gymnopilus species but we can't seem to agree on which....

    Growing in central Wisconsin off of fallen WHITE CEDAR trees.... They are usually smaller (cap around 1 - 2 inches across) and stems short a bit thin ( 1/2 inch thick) and have a wicked curve to them. the biggest ones I found were around 3-4 inches across but had the same small curved stipe. they have these cool pinkish purple scales and easily bruise blue green.

    Any ideas or suggestions? I do have spore prints and a sample that need to get sent off to the lab.

    I like how you can really see the pink / purple color in this one around the top and margin of the cap :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    some bigger specimens...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gill shots and you can see that hooked stipe:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    if you look close you can see some of the bruising on the cap :)

    [​IMG]

    this little one had a slug munching on it...hes still on the stem =P

    cobwebby veil!
