POTD: Agaricaceae

Posted on

I believe this is a Chlorophyllum Molybdites or a False Parasol (poisonous), which is frequently confused with the Macrolepiota Procera or the Parasol Mushroom (Edible).

    Good photo! I would be very afraid to even touch them, as so species can poison you right through your skin.

    Poisonous mushrooms always remind me of the Clint Eastwood film. Can’t remember the name. He was a soldier recuperating in home full of women and got a little too amorous, I think, so they poisoned him 😂

      I looked it up…The Beguiled. 1971. I’ve never seen that one. He was a Confederate soldier.

      I like Eastwood. He has short patience with bullshit.

        Yup, and still turning them out apparently 😁

            It was alright, I didn’t watch it properly, sit in corner writing every night, given TV up 😂 But it was on and sounded okay.

              It’s a good thing that you would rather write than watch TV. I’d rather read than watch TV. Most of it is propaganda, including the commercials. 😠

              I caught his movie trailer but, I won’t go out of my way to see it. Going to the movies has been ruined and I am not into Netflix or Hulu or Disney+. If it shows up on HBO or Starz, I might see it in the future at some point. Ken is a TV surfer, not me.

                Yes, I’ll write until I’m, phew 😥 Then I go and read lol. It’s the journalist’s and presenters that kill all news for me. But most films and TV programs are rehashed from older stuff, I guess I’m just getting too old, there’s only so many stories they can tell

                Think it was on Netflix, same here Gillian watches all sorts of stuff, I just zone it out.

    Fungi are so much more sophisticated than we give them credit for. With plants and fruits, it’s a botany of desire. With fungi it’s more a botany of death.

      They can, indeed, be deadly but, the right ones are excellent on pizza or as a burger substitute. Then, there’s the medicinal qualities. I routinely eat Lion’s Mane…tastes like chicken! LOL! I’m not kidding.

        Do you harvest them in the woods? I just found a vendor who sells them and a lot of other kinds of mushrooms. Will have to try Lion’s Mane. How do you prepare it??

          I don’t, no…though I may snatch a different kind of shroom off of a local tree. It grows Turkey Tail type shrooms and you can tell folks walk by and cut them off when they get to size.

          We have a company called Haw River Mushrooms and they make their rounds in Farmers Markets.

          Lions Mane looks like a mane of hair. All I do is slice them & pan fry them. They do have a chicken flavor on their own. Lard, salt, butter or any other cooking additive will hide that taste a bit. I love them in a spaghetti sauce I make.

          I have taken actual Turkey Tail medicinally. Paul Stamets brand.
