Potential libs, ID?
    #11297892 - 10/22/09 08:57 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Well, me and some friends went picking and found a bunch of these mushrooms growing all over in a grassy pasture area behind my friend's house .. We're not quite sure what they are, would like to believe they're libs but I tbh have my doubts. The gills throw me off for one thing.

Haven't gotten a sporeprint yet, working on it.

Habitat:
Where does it grow? Eg. woods, pasture, state, province, country, altitude, etc. What does it grow on? Eg. soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?), etc.

Habitat: Pasture (large grassy field area), Washington state north of Seattle south of Bellingham

Gills:
Color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc.
Gills are rather white/gray looking.

Stem:
Length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc.
The stem is not very long in many cases, the length of the mushrooms were only a couple inches from top to bottom. The stipe color is white to light-cinnamon colored and is very brittle, rather thin.

Cap:
Diameter, color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc.
Caps are somewhat umbonate, are maybe an inch in diameter, and are varying shades of brown with notable lines going down the sides of the cap (see pics.)

Spore print color:
Still awaiting sporeprint, will update with this in a few hours.

Bruising:
Another thing that puts me off is I'm not sure I see any bruising.

Other information:
The mushrooms don't seem to have a very powerful odor to them, compared to others I've smelled of varying genus/species.

There were TONS of these things, and they seemed to be the only thing other than puffballs in this pasture area.

Mycena sp., spore print should be white.  not liberty caps.

It would not surprise me if the sporeprints come out white. Also my friends were warned to throw away if they did so all's well.

Mycena seems a proper ID for this considering the color of the gills, the lack of blue bruising and the improper stipe, along with the striped look of the caps.

Any particular tips for distinguishing this and other genus/species from psilocybe semilanceatas?

Btw: will still include sporeprint color in a few hours.

libs will have a separable pellicle, the caps will show hygrophanous fading from dark brown to light, straw brown as they dry, and the spore print color of course...

kk thanks :smile:

We did apparently find one with a dark sporeprint but all the rest had white ones so you were right on the money.

Appreciate the help.
