Other than the 5th photo (bluegills.jpg), I can't make much out in the other photos.

The main group of mushrooms in that photo look similar to Psathyrella candolleana. Unfortunately, there are a lot of species which look close to that, and most of them are of unknown edibility.

For the other mushrooms, try writing a description. A big thing to help (and one you should get in the ahbit of doing) would be making a spore print. Include the spore print color in the description.


You are correct in your statement that eating the wrong mushroom can kill you. Around the world there are several deaths a year from people eating the wrong mushrooms. There is no easy way to identify the poisonous ones vs edible ones. You have to identify each collection of mushrooms.

People who are starting out have the most success by learning a few distinctive, easy-to-identify species found in their area and focusing on finding those. As they become familiar and easy, learn new species from time to time. Eventually you develop a broad enough knowledge to identify a good percentage of what you find.

Get a book that covers the species in your area and read it. Then start trying to identify the mushroms you can find in your area.

Another way is to find experienced people in your area to help you out. Mycological societies are useful places for that.

If you want to try and find somebody from the shroomery, try the Gathering Forum.


Happy mushrooming!

Those are a Panaeolus species, probably Panaeolus papilionaceus.
They are not active or toxic. :imo: I would not eat them its pointless.

You are in the right habitat though for Panaeolus cinctlus which is active.

What you have:
Pan paps


What you want:
Pan cinct


Where abouts are you demotus?

If your in FL fuck cinctulus and look for Psilocybe cubensis or Copelandia cyanescens in dung around pasture land.
