Another Mushroom ID Request

Came across this mushroom - right in the middle of a forest path - it was not growing next to any particular tree trunk.

I am stumped - looks a bit like a red top, but I am just guessing.

Sorry for pic quality - I took several but messed them up when transferring to PC - so this is all I got to share.

The top was light tan with bumps all over it,
the underside was smooth white, no fins at all.




what say you?

Tough to tell from pic. Growing near a conifer?
Looks like Amentina muscaria, the fly mushroom, as some in these parts call it.

Jeff - there were a few hemlocks in the area - this mushroom was right smack in middle of path - at least 10 feet from nearest tree.

The only schrooms I will harvest and eat are papinkis and sheepshead - they are the only two I can positively no questions asked ID.

Thanks for looking.

The woods are absolutely loaded with all sorts of mushrooms. Banner year withall this moisture.

It's some kind of amanita. Don't eat.

Possibly a gem-studded puffball. Edible. Yet, it goes without saying, don't eat a thing without proper id

Re: Another Mushroom ID Request

It's hard to tell what this is without seeing the top. It's definitely not a gem-studded puffball. Those really don't have a stem of any great length and the cap is joined with the stem (so to speak). This pic shows a very long stem and you can almost make out gills underneath the cap. There is no "underneath" on a puffball.
