Shaggy Mane Update
Last week I posted here about a funky looking mushroom I had found. I had googled it and thought it to be a shaggy mane, but I was not completely sure.
But now based on another blogger's id and the progression of the mushroom as described on the link from last weeks post, I believe this is a shaggy mane (edible-please use caution) mushroom.
I'm going to show you some before and after pics today so you can see the progression for yourself.
before ~ mushroom I showed you last week ~ image made 10/26
after ~ image taken 10/28. see how the bottom is turning black. This is one of the evidences of shaggy mane. you would need to read the link from last weeks blog post to see why they do this, I can't remember, something about the spores.
after ~ image taken 10/28, the underside of the above mushroom. you can see it did develop a bit of a stem.
before ~ remember the "father, mother and baby"? this image made 10/28, they are a little bigger.
after ~ see how the bigger one developed a stem, this image made 10/30
different angle ~ after, turning black and melting. image made 10/30
before ~ image made on 10/28
after ~ melting and turning black, image made 10/30. this is the one where I seen the most drastic difference.
Unfortunately I went back on 10/31 but the guy has mowed the grass and run all of them over so I did not see there end. I can only assume it was a pile of what may have looked like black tar.
