Hi all

I was out in the New Forest (UK) yesterday and while I was stomping around a field of horses, I saw some delightful-looking mushrooms growing  in the grass. From the time of year, I thought there might be a chance that they were liberty caps, so I picked a few to see if I could identify them when I got home. After a bit of web searching, I came across this site and after a bit of perusing, I don't think they are liberty caps. Nevertheless, I am now quite interested to know what they are! Could I have suddenly developed a new-found interest in mushroom hunting? Is this how it starts? lol





Habitat: Grass field with horses grazing. There were more growing near the horses' manure.

Gills: Sort of chocolatey brown

Stem: Off-white creamy colour, quite thin, a bit brittle

Cap: A rather lovely orange-brown, fading to cream at the bottom. 1 - 2cm in diameter

Spore print colour: Dark purple/black

Bruising: No colour change was observed.

Location: Picked in New Forest, Hampshire, UK

===

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Si

are the collected specimens (1st photo) the same as in the habitat shot? (2nd)

the collected ones are a Panaeolus species, the habitat shot ones probably are also, more pics needed

Hi Beege, thanks for the reply.

Yes, I think the habitat specimens are the same as the collected. At least, they were all growing in the same area and look very similar. I didn't take any more habitat photos, sadly.

Do you know if they are edible?

all mushrooms with a black spore print are eatable (meaning not toxic, though not necessarily good) some species of panaeolus are hallucinogenic, yours are not.

Hehe thanks for the explanation. I'll get back out there and try again, maybe take more photos next time.

Cheers
