slippery jack

suillius luteus

Description:

My mushroom pic is clear and shows the surrounding. I identified it and I think it is Slippery Jack. It lives in the kingdom fungi group. It has a lot of the same characteristics. One is the height of the stalk. They are both about 8 cm tall. My mushroom lives in a wet forest. There is a couple of the same kind of mushrooms around. Both the mushrooms have slimy caps. My mushroom has no spore print and is unattached. It has gills and is a light brown orange color. Its cap is thin and not long. Kingdom: fungi Division: basydiumycota Class: agaricumycetes Order: argaricales Family: sulicare Genus: sullius

Habitat:

This lives in a wet forest next to a pond

Notes:

this is kingdom fungi

It looks a lot like mine. It has some of the same characteristics but instead I had got a Golden Waxy Cap.

Slippery jack doesn't have gills, it has sponge like spore tubes. It is also a bigger mushroom than this appears. Although the cap itself is a bit blurred, I"d agree with waxy cap as a starting point for ID
