The standard for the name " mushroom " is the cultivated white button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus; hence the word " mushroom " is most often applied to those fungi (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycetes) that have a stem (stipe), a cap (pileus), and gills (lamellae, sing. lamella)

behaviors’ of the mushroom

What exactly is the growth behaviors’ of the mushroom?

 Might it be growing by itself? If there are clusters, are they tightly packed, so that the bases of the stems are touching, or even fused? If the mushroom is growing from a log, does it stick out laterally from the log, or does it sit on top of the log--or does it have a curved stem that comes out of the side of the log but aligns the cap so that it is perpendicular to the environment?

Series Techniques about mushrooms ?

Choose fresh mushrooms  you really feel you have a sensible opportunity of identifying. Test and mistake will assist you make this choice; after a few tests with, for example, a tan Cortinarius, you may decide that there is a reason some professional mycologists specialize in a single genus that contains a lot of species.

To be able to have much achievement at all in determining organic mushrooms, you will need to have several individuals symbolizing all stages of the mushroom's development. Pick mushrooms  in good condition, selecting buttons, medium-sized individuals, and mature mushrooms. Most mushrooms make substantial changes in their appearance during their brief lives, and you will frequently need to know what these changes are in order to determine all of them. While this "all-stages" rule applies pretty much all the time, it is especially important with species of Russula, Cortinarius, and boletes.

The Effective identification of some mushroom

Effective identification of some mushrooms will depend on whether or not you know what is going on with your mushroom at the base of its stem. Many species of Amanita have a characteristic Volvo enclosing the base of the stem; other mushrooms may have a tap root, like Xerula furfuracea or Polypore’s radicatus. So you will need to "dig up" mushrooms--but, as you do, do not cause unnecessary damage to the soil or wood they are growing in!

Spot 4 or even 5 individuals in the same waxed paper bag, leave the top of the waxed paper bag open or very loosely folded, and place the bag in your basket. Avoid piling things on top of one another. If you are hunting mushrooms on a hot day, make sure to keep your basket in a shaded and ventilated place for the car ride home.

Mushroom identification skills

While you start to create your mushroom identification skills, you will find that some details may need to be examined "in the field" for some mushrooms. Some Lactations species, for example, contain a very scant amount of milk, or "latex." Since you will probably need to know what color the latex is and whether it changes color on exposure to air, you may need to record this information when the mushroom is still very fresh, especially if the mushroom has a long ride in a hot car ahead of it. There are many other examples of mushrooms that may require information are recorded in the field; experience will help you decide what you need to do immediately and what can wait around.

Collecting mushrooms

When someone starts to be collecting mushrooms on Mushroom Wonderland Day--say, throughout the monsoon seasons associated with the actual Pacific North west or the Rockies, or throughout a rainy summer week in northern Michigan--count your blessings. There will be mushrooms everywhere. Once, during the monsoons in the Four Corners area, my mother and I entered a spruce forest that contained so many mushrooms we literally had to be careful not to step on them. Sadly, though, you can only carry so many mushrooms and attempting to identify a single species you have collected can take well over an hour when you get home. In your desire to choose every mushroom  in view, you might want to keep in mind these records.
