ID of Fungi……..: first photograph taken at Panhala ,Kolhapur,Maharashtra on wood in the month of december.

efloraofindia:”28102011MR2’’ mushroom Pune: I observed this mushroom yesterday in my neighbors garden .

Then it was a cap of 7-8 cms. I decided to photograph it today.
But today it appears like this opened with white stripes. Is it perishing?

I found another similar mushroom growing at the same place today one with stalk. Attaching pics of the same

Yes … it is perishing. It is helpful, if you can send some more fotos e.g. the Underside, its root, its stem etc and more information like if it is growing under a tree, and which tree, Open land, shadow, sun. etc.etc. Mushrooms are difficult to identify from fotos.
Hope some expers can help you.

Few days after this mushroom perished another similar mushroom cropped up a little further away. Attaching pics of the same. These show the stem. The underside looked similar to pic 281020112702 .jpg. These mushrooms were growing under a coconut tree in shade in my neighbours garden.

i was hoping someone from India would be able to help you. Many mushrooms go symbiosis with certain trees, this one is growing under coconut. In my books I don’t find any mushrooms under coconut. 🙂
I visit http://www.pilzfinder.de/ it is in german, but if you click BILDSUCHE-Button you will find many fotos, you can compare your mushrooms click on the foto and read the Info (in german).
Sorry, can’t help you!

Many thanks … for being so kind to provide me the link and telling me about the BILDSUCHE button. Yes this will be of great help to me to identify the mushrooms and as monsoon is approaching there will be many interesting mushrooms cropping up. Thanks a lot.
