I found these in a cow field about an hour southeast of atlanta. They were found in a nice rich mixture of dung and straw.

Sure. The pics aren't that great, sorry about that. The caps are light tan with banding along the ridge that is more prominant in the larger/older specimens and a gold coloration on top. Some of the caps have very dark coloration on them (I noticed this on many of the mushrooms that were underneath others). The gills are a fawn color with very dark spores.. I'm still waiting on my sporeprint but I'd say it is black. The stems are light brown with dark brown overtones (maybe a slight tinge of red?) and are hollow.

Thanks MM! This is my first find on my own, can't tell you how happy I am. I pulled into a gas station this morning after having no luck whatsoever. When I got back in the car, I stuck my key into the ignition and BOOM! my airbag deployed. This hurts a little, by the way, and your ears ring for a while from the explosion. I went to walk it off on a dirt road behind the gas station and stumbled onto this field. Looks like about 130 or so wet grams and there's more in the field for later.

Oh, and I think the gills are what is described as free.  (edit: scratch that, they actually look adnexed. The description I'm looking at says that pans have attached gills. I assume that adnexed could be considered attached. Looks like I get to school myself in gill structures today. Now I know why I took all those biology classes in college.. money well spent :smile: )

Wow... That's a crazy story!  It seems those mushrooms wanted you to find them, so they somehow made your airbag deploy.  Hmm.... If mushrooms can make your airbag deploy.... What else can they do?!?!  :crazy:

Congrats on your find, man! :laugh:

Definately. As a bonus you can actually pick in the daytime - another first for me. I watched the farmers feed the cows as I picked.. I was so far away they never knew I was there. Kind of like a shroom ninja.

My lab rat has absconded with 21 grams of my stems and a big 'ol cap. The little bastard insists on being called Dr. Benway, for some reason. He just sent me an email saying that he has made some kind of liquid mushroom concoction and is prep'ing the lab for some experiments with one of the test humans he keeps around. I'm not too worried, though.. He's a better scientist than me.

Here's a shot of my find (minus what Ben ganked). Now I have a giant sheet of spores, too. Life is good.
