Please Help me Identify these
    #11221854 - 10/10/09 06:43 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

Hello everyone long time lurker first time poster.  Ive been hunting for about a year now, mostly just taking in what I can in my spare time.  So its October here in the Northeast and there's a lot of rotting going on.  I found these while investigating strange music coming from the woods.  Turned out to be hunters (animal hunters).  After seeing what was making all the noise I headed back when I stopped and looked at the ground and found a little colony of these shrooms.  They looked like what Ive seen called "liberty caps"  and they resemble shrooms I have eaten and tripped on before.  Well I don't want to, or have anyone else take any chances on wrongly identifying these and I would like some experienced human input.  All thought and time is much appreciated.






Habitat:They were growing on a dead wet tree stump in a mostly pine area boarding an old field.  Northeast America

Gills:Gills are a white/off white color and are attached to the stem at the very top inside.

Stem:
About 1 to 4 inches long, hollow with slight curves, and are white.

Cap: Cap is about 1 inch across on the biggest. its a white to gray color, and a few look shiny as if they are wet. 


Spore print color:
Very important!  Iam waiting on a pending spore print atm. And I will post back as soon as its ready. 

Bruising:The mushrooms seem to bruise only very lightly to a slightly darker grey.

Other information:They have small but noticeable nipples on the center of the caps.  I found a small amount of very small new ones growing on a piece of wood I also kept.

liberty caps dont grow from wood, they grow in pastures in the tall grass (not from cow shit either)

You can find out all about lib caps on this site.  I just skimmed the post so I don't know if you gave an exact location.  Depending on where in Northeast America (I don't want to know), you might not be in a prime spot for them.  Doesn't mean they have no chance of being there.
