ID Request, UK Libs
    #11361082 - 11/01/09 07:49 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Habitat:
We found 5 or 6 mushrooms within seconds of arriving at a pasture with a couple of dozen cows in it but had to leave because of the farmer before we got to explore the whole field. I doubt it would have been very fruitful. Field that yielded 6 libs was quite damp but the barren field was utterly infested with every type of mushroom except liberty caps, hundreds of them under your feet with every step.

The second field we got to really was a shock! About a 15 minute walk from campus and civilization, as soon as we got there we were certain (?) we'd found an abundance of libs - we got on our hands and knees and were picking probably 100-200 mushrooms every half an hour for an hour and a half solid. The grass was extremely damp and there were some other mushrooms growing although we found more libs than any other type by far - certainly an abundance compared to the other fields

The field was clearly used for grazing though we couldn't really identify what type of animal as there weren't any present. My best guess is sheep. There were two other fields adjacent to it but quite small and with houses attached so we didn't check.

Gills:
Attached, very dark, grey-y to purple-y although they've browned since we got them home.

Stem:
anywhere between half an inch to 4 inches, we got some real beauties, some way bigger than i expected, white, very flexible.

Cap:
0.5cm-1cm, some more some less, very bell shaped for the most part though we did get some rather odd specimens I'd be grateful for a second opinion on. There were a few brown caps when we first picked them but most of them were cream-brownywhite, and are creamier now they're drying. Bell shaped and curved inwards at the bottom, some classic libs here, some not-so.

Overall even if it turns out a few dozen of them are cases of mistaken identity, this would still have been my most successful hunt ever, by a wide win. We have some epic trips here to be had, and some really beautiful little mushies. :smile:

Thanks for the help in advance guys;

Nice. If only one could see more than a thumbnail size pic of piles of some mushrooms. I think they are libs, but each specimen is like 3 pixels on my screen, so I can't tell for sure.

Thanks a lot for the quick feedback. :smile:

Sorry about the picture quality - don't own a camera so having to use the one on my laptop for the first time. Hopefully these should be a bit better.





We're almost certain everything left in the haul is the same mushroom, give or take one or two rogues we may have missed us. These are some randoms from each of the sheets pictured earlier. We've got four shelves and a disused litter tray filled with these. Maybe just shy of 500. :-)

Thanks again for the help folks!

Pictures aren't coming up any bigger but can definitely see them clearer. I would certainly say there all libs... good job :thumbup:

Yeah I'm sorry about the small pics, no camera like I said so webcam will have to do.

Thank you very much for the help folks. Glad to finally have a hugely successful hunt under my belt. I thought I'd have to travel miles and miles and miles to find this many, but when you look they're right under your nose. :smile:
