Mushrooms found on cow pie need help!!!! id request
    #8763836 - 08/12/08 07:05 PM (5 years, 11 months ago)

Habitat:
I found this patch of mushrooms on cow dung. I am in flagstaff AZ. The cow dung was located in the woods next to a cow pasture. There was no decomposing wood around it, just a pile of dung.


Gills:
gills are a dark brownish and do not attach to stem.

Stem:
the range of stem length was 4.5 to 7.5 cm. the stem is very sturdy. varies from light and dark brown to almost white.

Cap:
Diameter- varied between 1.9 cm - 2.5 cm

color- light brown some caps darker than others.

texture- slightly conical very smooth

Spore print color:
I am not experienced but it looked purplish brown to me

Bruising:
black to dark blue bruising

Other information:
smell: smells like white mushrooms bought from the grocery store.

specifically i would like to know if you think these are going to kill me or if they are psychedelic. Also i would like to know what they are. PLEASE BE SPECIFIC!

I think you have a mix of Panaeolus subbalteatus and Panaeolus papilionaceus there.  The smaller three in the habitat pic are the later species.

If any of the prints are not jet black then its something else.  Also it almost looks like that cluster of three has an annulus which would change everything, but I don't think it does.

Sorry for calling them Stropharia semiglobata earlier.  I guess they look a little more like Panaeolus, but I was going on the purple brown spores and annulus, I am doubting both those features now, the print looks pretty black.  But its kind of hard to tell with the print being so heavy.

As long as the print is jet black they are not toxic for sure.  All members of Panaeolus have jet black prints and none are toxic.

There are some toxic mushrooms with dark purple brown spore prints but they do not grow on dung.

I think these are ok to eat and probably active P. subbalteatus, the larger ones at least.  The smaller ones are inactive but harmless.

So did you eat them cause I bet you won't get off on those at all.  They don't look active to me.  There's no bluing reaction and while I'm not familiar with all the names I know the looks and these don't appear active to me.
