Are these mushrooms still edible? The colour of the gills changed.

I'm not sure what kind of mushrooms they are. They're not store-bought though, my mother picked them from the forest. She also washed them straight away. They've been stored in the refrigerator for 5 days. No off-odour. Gill's colour changed from light brown to dark brown-black.

  • What kind of mushroom are they, how were they stored and how long? – Stephie Oct 18 at 19:32

    I would think this is unanswerable. Wild collected mushrooms of unknown variety regardless of how they are stored or their condition cannot honestly be called safe from a picture. This is a high risk item without the facts. – dlb Oct 18 at 20:50
  • I'm pretty sure these are Agaricus campestris L manatarka.org/agaricus-campestris – TheLostInUnknown Oct 18 at 21:20

    Gill darkening is pretty normal over time. Slimey feel, dry spots and other fungi growing on your shrooms are the big danger signs. – Wayfaring Stranger Oct 19 at 23:30
