I live in the middle of nowere on a large cow farm, and from what I heard decided to investivate the cow shit closer than I normally do. This is what I have turned up.
Mind you there are just hundreds of each kind I am posting for an ID on. Thank yalls very much! First post of many here I hope
Found in moist dung and wood mulch. These were only found in a flat treed area were the cows like to lay so not much in the terms of grass, but I haven't let the cows over there for a while so maybe these poor guys got a chance to grow eh?
This next guy found scattered across the land likes to live in the tall grass. Even though it seems like they arn't growing in dung, I'm pretty sure they have to be. The place has been a cow farm for 35 or so years. Theres bound to be shit somewere under the grass.
This next shroom was found in the cow field and outside of it as well. It looks edible to me, and the stem that I cut open (pictured below) is solid white inside.
And my last current find was found in none other than a huge 4 by 4 foot pile of decomposing poop with some heavily degraded hay thats been there for god only knows how long. I thought they were kind of cute, so, I dug em up.
If there is more information you need don't hesitate to ask, I am working on spore prints as I'm typing this!
Thanks a ton, this website has been extremely informative and helpful to me.
1) Clitocybe or Melanoleuca 2) Galerina or Conocybe 3) Looks deadly but its edible, Leucoagaricus naucinus 4) Could be Panaeolus cinctulus. Which would be active. Check the spore print color. Pics of older specimens would be helpful.
