Western Washington Mushroom Identification
    #17118490 - 10/28/12 05:31 PM (1 year, 8 months ago)

Hello Mycologists! I am just getting into mushroom identification and I have a good idea to what these particular specimens are, but I just want to do a little cross-check with you good folks!


#1



Habitat:
Western Washington. Cascade Foothills. Wood chips, under spruce and growing under low ground cover.

Gills:



Stem:
Largest specimen has 6cm long stem, rotted. White, bluing upon age and contact

Cap:
2-4cm. Dark brown( to slimy blue with the age), slighly slimy (much rainfall) concave. Bluing around rim.


Spore print color:
Dark Brown


Bruising:
Blue bruising on stem and cap. Dark blue, slimy old caps were present in the same fruiting colony

____________________________________________________________________
#2




Habitat:
Well-manicured grass. Under spruce tree.

Gills:


Stem:
White, narrow

Cap:
1-3cm. Conical, firm.


Spore Print Color:
Dark Grey-black. Very, very dark


Other:
No bruising present on stem or cap

___________________________________________________________________
#3




Habitat:
Western Washington. Cascade Foothills. Wood chips, under spruce and growing under low ground cover.

Gills:


Stem:

Difficult for me to explain. This image is very detailed. White when young, darkening with age.

Cap:
caramel. white

Spore Print Color:
I know I have a lot of nerve to post this specimen without a spore print. Within 24 hours, I will have a photo posted.

Other:
Heavy, heavy rainfall.

Thank you!

Nice finds!

1) Definitely Psilocybe, I think these might even be P. baeocystis!
2) Panaeolus cinctulus or olivaceous. Might be Panaeolina (inactive) if there is brown in the spore print.
3) deadly Pholiotina or Galerina I think. I need to get better at these west coast species!

1 not to sure

2 looks like panaeolus foenisecii

3 is Galerina for sure. They actually smell very good but its extreamly poisonous.

Stuck in time im riding with the seasons. See the things we find are all for reasons some are pleasing and in one more day, I'll find another way home.

Agree'd.
#1 is most likely P. baeocystis.
#2 is most likely not a Panaeolus sp though, look at all those brown spores in the print! They are indeed dark spores, but black spores are BLACK.
#3 is a Galerina sp. Most likely Galerina autumnalis.

Don’t just keep ones head down and ones pace steady, look behind to make sure there’s no trail of destruction. Consider that the things below ones feet in physicality, are actually above ones head in importance. Remember that we are not the only ones alive, and are definitely not depended upon to continue living. We are an expendable creature in the eyes of the earth. Thus, we must treat ourselves like we are guests. Accommodations must be made for life all over the planet. The power of life is incredibly diverse, intelligent, and intricate in its adaptability. Lets not give nature a reason to consume us in turn.

:bow2: I couldn't tell if the brown in the spore print was from the very yellow/warm lighting or not. Thanks!

Just offering my 2cents. You covered yourself well by adding that it could be a Panaeolina sp, and for the OP to check the spores.

The most important thing to learn in identifying mushrooms for others, is the ability to say "it looks like" or "it could be" versus "yep, its that one for sure". The latter of which can be dangerous, unless there is enough evidence for you to be 100% sure. Don't think I am lecturing you or correcting you...You're doing a great job and your help is greatly appreciated around here. :grin:
I am just saying this stuff so others can learn from this as well :laugh:

3 could be Kuehneromyces lignicola.

If the blue staining on 2 is dramatic, it could be Copelandia bispora.

2. is certainly Panaeolina, idk if you should call it P. foenisecii or P. castaneifolia. :shrug:

nb4idtaken,
I went back to my patch today and got some photos of the remaining fruit bodies. Keep in mind, my caps were picked 5 days ago and the other fruitbodies looked much better when I was there then. The decaying process is very quick with these guys!
Found in a patch of bark, in a small residential park with playground. Fairly established(10 years old).



These Baeo's were found less than 15 feet away from whatever species #3 was. I never bothered with a spore print with #3 too.

I was thinking #3 could also be Hypholoma marginatum, but it's kinda missing the marginatum part :smile:
