Edible Fungi


As below


Slimecap (Gomphidius glutinosus)

Picture does not do it justice. The foot of the stem is a bright yellow and the cap is tan to brown and slimy when wet.

The gills are covered by a veil when young and leave a faint veil remnant. It turns black when it dries.

Edible but slimy. The slime layer can be peeled off




Violet Cortinarius or Webcap (Cortinarius violaceus)

Edible. A beautiful, non-viscid,  mushroom which is so purple that it almost appears black (as above) in some instances. The surface is velvety with small scales or tufted fibrils and the cortina is not always evident. It is perhaps the only species to possess sterile cells (cystidia) on both surfaces and edges of the gills. It has rusty-brown spores.
