Hunt today...ID PLEASE!!!
    #1532605 - 05/09/03 12:29 AM (14 years, 20 days ago)

Found these today in horse manure/compost pile (I'm in PA) with some pann subbs...I'll describe as best I can...
Spore print was purple-brown, measurements 1 to 4 inches depending on the cap, stem sizes vary, but they are thick, but hollow, whitish stems that bruise dark, ring on edges of cap, dark center (almost like a slightly lighter version of a big p subb)
It rained hard a few times these past few days until the sun came out this morning...active or not, I'm very curious to know what they are, any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Looks like another Psytharella find to me... and so I'd say they're definitely not active, but I'd leave the more educated guesses to LK/mj and others.

Yes. One example springs to mind immediately.

Stropharia coronilla has been listed as the cause of the following symptoms: "Malaise, headache, generalized aching, ataxia, dizziness, vomiting, hallucinations, confusion" (source - "Poisoning from the Mushroom Stropharia coronilla (Bull. ex Fr.) Quel.", Journal of the Arkansas Medical Society (1977) 73:311-312).

And, now that I think about it for a moment, Hypholoma capnoides has had a death attributed to possibly being by it. It has definitely caused a number of serious poisonings.

Spore color is only one of several features you need to use to identify mushrooms accurately enough to avoid being poisoned.

Happy mushrooming!
