I plan on going to a cow pasture on october the 10th or so, it has been rainy and about 65 F here, is it too cold/late in the year?
I found some mushrooms up in tulsa on some dead trees and dead plant matter on the ground, dark brown area on top of the caps that radiates out to cream white, single mushrooms, white spore print, annexed or free gills, many gills close together, long thin stem with no veil rip point or rings, it starts out brown grey next to the ground and goes up and becomes white as it reaches the gills, convex cap with VERY slight ubonate look. What do you think?
other mushroom is white with with a bit thicker stem prolly 1 cm convex cap white with lines appearing to radiate out because of the thin flesh and the gills, gills are very short and cup inside of the mushroom cap so that the gills themselves form a curved patern, a bit of ring on the stem, colouration of stem same to above
Found a bright orange mushroom on a tree, emarginate/succeeding gills rust brown area in cap center that turns more orange towards edge of mushroom, has a real "mushroom shape" not like golden oyster, I am not done with the spore print, if it is orange its probably active
Update: tried a sodium hydroxide and an ammonia test on the small brown and white slimey/sticky mushroom, no reaction on both fronts, I did get a nice spore print and I have a cross-section of the cap, it alternates between small and large gills, small ones can be seen on the right side of the mushroom cross-section. It was found growing on a path right in front of a long rectangular earth-holding log used to make stairs on the hiking trail, there was some decaying leaf-like matter present, it was found in a shady area. It is most likely alkaline soil due to the large amount of limestone in the area, it composes the entire hillside.
Thanks, if the first one is a Marasmius species I think it might be marasmius cohaerens, habitat fits, looks similar, however it says the hydroxide should turn olive, my mushroom might have been a bit old, it took a few hours to get the supplies for the test. Spore print looks really pretty though, only thing that doesnt fit is that it makes no mention of the sticky cap.
