My friend found these in and near her back yard today. Expert help is most appreciated, as we are a both a little rusty at doing this after many years of not being involved with wild mushroom hunts in any way.
THE BOTTOM PIC COULD BE ANOTHER SPECIES (The only difference is the darker ring on the outer cap) - ?
Habitat: Central/East Kentucky in yard of grass, wild strawberry and clover.
Gills: Dark Brown to Black
Stem: Aprox 6 inches long, very thing as shown in pics above, NO BRUISING Hollow stem that splits easy.
Cap: Slight dimple in middle, gold rust brown and slight to dark circular ring on outer edge of cap
Spore print color: Dark Black
Bruising: None whatsoever. No blue color found anywhere on mushroom.
Other information: All the mushrooms above were found in the same back yard in various spots. However they are separated in two piles, with the bottom pic (above) being a patch that appears the same type except the outer ring on the caps appear darker. The Same?? -- Small worms were found crawling out of all mushrooms as they dry.
We Will Post A fat Mushroom of Another Variety in another post soon.
Thanks for the help gang. I might post complete spore prints tomorrow, however after looking at the thread dedicated to the species panaeolina foenisecii I really think you folks have pegged most of these correctly.
Appreciate the feedback and welcome other comments as well.
