GILLED MUSHROOMS: Colored & Dark-spored


Cortinarius cracked warm tannish cap, lavender? subdistant gills becoming brown and stem with bulbous base.booted stem.  01494

Fungi with colored or dark spores may not reveal their true shades until enough spores have matured and been released to change the origincal color of the gills from white or another pale color to the color of the spores. This is why it is necessary to make spore-prints. Dark-colored spores can be pink to salmon-pink, purple-brown to black, brown, rust-brown, or green depending on the genus and species. Colored-spored fungi are listed in accordance with their spore colors. There are fewer dark-spored gilled mushrooms than light-spored mushrooms. The photo above shows the gills of a Cortinarius.
