Stems bruising light red/pink
    #11240662 - 10/13/09 06:40 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

I was recently out on a field trip to the campus livestock center when I realized it was the perfect weather to look for some cubes.  The pastures are all top quality as this is a major agricultural university, and it is pretty much open to the public. After the field trip I decided to drive on back and grab some samples I saw while with the group. I know there are some really big cubes in the pastures that currently have cattle in them, but they were too close to public view for me to be picking so I went a bit farther where you could tell cattle used to be, but had been moved recently.  Anyway, I bagged as many samples as I could, but could not find one single stem that would bruise blue. Instead, all the stems are turning a light red/pinkish color. There were about 10 or so grouped around some really old manure that had already settled into the soil. They average out to about 3 or so inches tall and 1-2 inches across the cap. There is a skirt on them, the gills are white, as is the stem until it bruises. The cap has a slight brownish/yellow tint at the tip. Seeing as how I am a horticulture major and not a mycologist, I will have to post some pictures as soon as my camera charges up, and I am taking spore prints on both foil and paper. Any help is appreciated as I haven't found conclusive evidence of what kind of shroom this is in the hours ive spent searching the web.
Thanks,
-bto

No, that's the first one I came across but every picture I've seen of C. molybdites has a darker stem and a slightly different cap. I'm in no hurry to eat these, I learned my lesson long ago when I gobbled tons of the wrong stuff and spent the entire night projectile vomiting. I'm really more curious than anything as the red bruising suprised me.

Maybe Leucoagaricus americanus. 

Kind of pointless to guess when you have pictures though.

ya, but my camera battery was completely dead and I don't wanna ruin it by taking it off the charger prematurely.

Lepiota is starting to look more promising.
