Those appear to be some sort of a Clitocybe possibly. I wouldn't eat them.

Yeah, i think so also(after google 'clitocybe')...
Its somewhat nearer to this picture i found in the web:
Posted Image
They named this one as Clitocybe eccentrica. I found this at here: http://www.mushroome...eccentrica.html
On closer look, the once i found have almost the very same features as this one at mushroomexpert.com. The cap formation and even the color and those brow to white hues is exactly the same; even the gill formations is also the same; and it grows on wood too.
The only thing different is the stipe. Those i found(#16) had no stipe like those on the picture. The gills of what i found runs from the caps to the base roots - it has no stipe(as i actually see them).
Anyway, as i looked into other family members of the Clitocybes, the ones i found must been very very close relative.
Thanks Lazlo.

----------
Since we are now in page 3, here's a picture of specimen#16 for your reference.

This specimen seemed to look whiter because this shot was taken on a very sunny day after an evening rain.

Jack, to answer your question about spores and reishi growing on top of eachother.... Spores are very aerial. Even in what feels like still air they will fall in great amounts and many will float away on the tiniest currents. Others may get lifted by heat, like how a bird catches heat tunnels for lift. This type of dispersal is much more advantageous than just dropping spores for most species. So it really makes little difference that it is on top.

Jack, ...spores are very aerial. Even in what feels like still air they will fall in great amounts and many will float away on the tiniest currents. ...


You're right. I forgot that one.

Nevertheless, your statement confirms that specimen #26 really is a Reishi mushroom.

Thanks Bobcat. Please keep on droppin' by. I got a few more species in my vault that needs to be identified...

Here's what i found just today inside the company's mini-forest.
27
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159424167
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159424167
They are only about 5cm tall; cap is approx 1cm-1.25cm diameter. Stalks are hollow. Some grew on the ground covered with fallen leaves , some grew on dead branches of a mahogany tree. Im currently getting its sporeprints and by the looks of its gills, i think the prints will be white.

They seem to look like enoki mushrooms.

This is the first time i see a whole patch of little mushes! (pic#6) They look fabulous!

I hope you guys could help me ID this one...

Sporeprints of these were rusty brown.

Here are pictures of it in full bloom.

We had a seminar last Friday. The place, situated in Cebu City, looked like a watershed. I just thought i would find lots of shroomies in the area.

Here's one of those interesting finds i got.
28
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159743206

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159743206

Smells fresh; stalks are not hollow, prints are white... This one is growing on a dead branch of a Mango Tree.

...though i haven't seen a real shiitaki before, i was thinking this could be a wild shiitake. I hope so...

I only got a very few prints. But i sun-dried them all for future requests.

I hope i could get i positive ID on this one.

Here's a quite huge(for me) mushroom we found here inside the company vicinity. We found it under a wooden bench near the mini-store. We call it "Ihi sa Iro" meaning "a mushroom out of dog's piss" - an old belief actually.

29
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159775355

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159775355

Its about 11cm high; cap diameter is 7cm.
It has a "Ring", gills are white. Sporeprints were light (not sure if its white coz i made the print on a red paper. Its not pure white).
Stalk is hollow. It made a brow stain when i cut it off from the cap for the spore printing.
It grew on soil.

You can also see from the picture its button stage.

I hope you can ID this one quick. I had a sporeprint of this and dried it for future use.

While waiting of ID's of those above, here's something to add on the list:

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159921976
I found these under the Mango Tree where i found #28. Its growing on the ground with the mango's fallen leaves.

Cap color is visibly yellow. Cap size is less than 2cm. Spores are yellow also, you can see some on the stipe. It has no rings. Stands about 4-5cm.

I dont know what this is. Any ID?

I also found these a the lawn of the DECS Ecotech where i found #28 & #30.

As seen in the picture, its dark brown. It stands about 6cm. Cap size is less than 2cm. Never took prints of these. The whole mushroom itself is firm, not fudgy.

I think this is somewhat related to specimen #18 - a family of the Xeromphalina sp..

I think this next shrooms are Coprinus disseminatus.

I found these on the mossy rocks inside the mini forest of the company i worked for.

This is a common mushroom specie here in my place. Theirs spores are rusty brown to gray. They seemed to disapper the day after. Probably, they turned to ink overnight...

Still no additional IDs?
Anyway, i wanna add some more...

The Lepiota's at #20-#21 are growing again on the same spot in between our walls. But what im gonna post are those dark shroomies growing in front of it.

Here are some of its pictures.

The caps and stipe are tough(hardy).
It got no rings but it has some kind of a break on the stipe near the cap.
Its stipe is not hollow.
Gills are connected to the stipe.
Sporeprints were white.
And its growing on soil.

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1160434893

The day i found them, i thought they were members of the Xeromphalina genus like those of #30 & #18. I expected it to form a flat cap like those of #30; but it didnot!

Could these be native asian blewits? ...guess not? ...but maybe...

Any ID on this one?

Since our internet connection is a bit sluggish these days, im gonna post two specimen for today.

Here's another find....

33
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1160436388

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1160436388

I found these outside a wrought-iron furniture shop along the road.
Its growing on a dead Ipil-ipil tree. It stands about 7inches. Cap diameter is about 8inches. I cant seem to find gills of this one. It looks like a family of Ganoderma sp.

At the back of it(see last 2 pictures as attached), i found a dried(maybe dead) specimen of this one. Its very big. It stands about 10inches and its cap diameter is almost 13inches! On the top, its cap is like its been waxed and shiny.

Any ID on this one? Could this be a useful specie?

Here is the 34th specimen photo im uploading....

34
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1160519813

Its growing on a 3/4inch thick particle board. The very same board where #12 grew.

It looked like small ears but not like the jew's ears fungus(black fungus). Texture of it on the top are the same of those black fungus at #11.
It has gills like oysters but are too small to be oysters.
...just take note, its diameter is lesser than the 3/4 inch thickness of the board.
These were once white a few days ago. They turned brownish earlier, maybe they are maturing.

Could this be edible?

I found this on along the road on our way to one of our affiliate plants.

This one was growing on a "still-standing" dead palm tree. There were 3 clusters of these arount it just 2 feet above the ground. It actually looks like clustered oysters. Its soft and smells like fresh mushroom too. I tried taking its prints but to no avail.

I reserved one cluster at the fridge for tissue culture. I also have a few dried specimen of this one. That is if this one is edible. Actually, it looks edible....

Im also suspecting that this might be chicken of the woods?!?

...I dont really know. I hope the experts here could help me out on this.

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1160634492

I hope this could be wild "Chicken of the Woods".

I would gladly send free dried specimen of this one to anybody who could name this for me. ...that is if you would want it....

You mention palm trees. I think chicken of the woods grows a bit further north than where you may be. They grow on hard woods in the north east US south to about North Carolina. That is really all I know about them. I have never encountered one in the wild.

Definately not Chicken of the Woods. I'm not even close to being sure about any of those 2 specimens Jack to be honest. They do sort of look like an Oyster possibly, but I really have no idea. Maybe m1a might know.
