Found mushrooms in patties...please help ID
    #1537349 - 05/10/03 06:27 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

hello. some buddies and I found some mushrooms in cowpatties in the hills behind our house. we live in San Luis Obispo and were wondering if they had any "magic" qualities. they are pretty small and have thin small stems. most of the caps are tan to a brownish color. they are definetely smaller than any "magic" mushrooms i have seen before. if someone could give me some info or tips for testing if they are poisonous or edible, it would be much appreciated. also, i was wondering how to take a spore print and if that would help me determine the mushroom's species. thanks for your help.

There are no good tests for determining whether a mushroom is poisonous or edible. The way we know what we know now is that somebody tried them - yes, including the deadly poisonous ones.

The only reliable way to ensure you're eating a mushroom that won't poison you is to identify it accurately.

Give us a good description as described in the FAQ (please include spore print color) and we'll give the ID a shot.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
