Okay, we threw a piece of driftwood in the fishtank a few days ago and now there's a mushroom on it!

the visible mycelium is orange and mossy, stem is hollow and white, about 3.5-4 inches, no volva. Cap is tannish-brown with beige specks, was distinctly bell shaped when younger, but has flattened out a bit with age. The perimeter of the cap is uneven, but not quite wavy. There seems to be no skin on the cap, ie. the gills are visible from above the mushroom. It's growing on a small chunk of pecan which is floating around in the water :P. Dad is unwilling to take a sporeprint, but due to the odd substrate, I was hoping we could narrow this down to a genus, anyway.
This thing sprouted up over the course of 12 or 16 hours, going from pin to veil breaking at +12hrs or so, to fully matured mushroom at 16 hours (or so :P)

Anyway, random guesses are appreciated! :smile:
I'll get pics if I can!

OK, one random guess coming right up!

How about Coprinus radians?

Happy mushrooming!

No, the log is partially submerged, though.
The cap degenerated into a gooey mess rather quickly, so I think Coprinus may be right on... it's beyond chances of a print now, but if any more pop up, I'll be sure and get one :blush:
