On the way back from getting my wisdom teeth checked up on this morning I saw a TON of these out of the corner of my eye. There must have been four or five patches, each with about 75 mushrooms. Sooo many. But to my dismay, when I stopped to get a good look they didn't resemble anything I recognized. :frown: But I still gotta know what they are. :smile: Here are a couple of pics:

a. Habitat - British Columbia; some sort of bark mulch that filled a huge flower bed, they were growing underneath trees and out in the open as well
b. Characteristics of the gills - off white, still don't know what attached/not attached means (I'll have to get a field guide one of these days)
c. Measurements of cap and stem - I only took two specimens, but caps probably ranged from 2.5cm-4.5cm, stems from 5cm-9cm
d. Characteristics of the stem - off white, solid, stringy like bark, brown inside, no sign of veil
e. Characteristics of the cap - rusty orange fading to off white
f. Spore print color - taking a couple tonight; pretty sure they'll be brown
g. Color that the mushroom bruises - Brown; very quickly too, light bruising instantly, and deep bruising within minutes if squeezed harder
h. Scent of mushroom - Very Strong

"GULF COAST TEXAS SYRINGE! EVERYTHING IS BIG IN TEXAS! Dear Keeper, I send you these pictures and spores so you may pass on this wonderful strain to the world! My cat accidentally ate a spore print and washed it down with 'Keepers Brew' when I wasn't looking. He took a 'DUMP' in your Kit A and before I new what had happened I found these monsters! WHAT THE HELL IS IN THAT BREW!?!? $35.00 + S/H " - SporeTradingPost's 'Keeper': douchebag of the century!

Nice photos and description. The spore print will be important for the ID.

I'll take a wild guess and say Psathyrella. If so, the psore print will probably come out a dark purplish brown.

Keep us informed.

Happy mushrooming!
