More Spring Agrocybes? (Pictures Added)
    #1581592 - 05/27/03 03:35 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

At first I thought these were Agrocybe praecox, but after reading in my field guide I think they might be Agrocybe dura because they were growing in my lawn. Everything my field guide said about A. dura is right on for what I am seeing. Plus the book says that it is very similar to A. praecox, but it is more common in lawns, whereas the latter is more common in mulch.

My field guide doesn't have a drawing of either or them, though, and it doesn't even have written information about A. praecox, so I'm still not certain.

Anyway... I can only upload one photo for now because I have met my limit for the day. I think that should change fairly soon, though, so I will post the rest in a short while.



(I am trying to obtain a spore print right now, but I'm not sure if the mushroom is mature enough already to drop spores, so we'll just have to wait and see for that.)

Namaste.

Here's a link to a page with a nice description of the species.

Those do look right.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the link!  Based on what that says, I am going to wait and see what color the gills turn as they age, and also be sure to check the spore print.  That should let me know for sure what they are.

I think these mushrooms look really neat, with their cracked caps and all.  They're very interesting and distinctive-looking, to say the least! :smile:

Haha, thanks man! :laugh:

Here are the rest of the photos I mentioned:









The cap that I am currently trying to get a spore print from has dropped some spores, and they are brown in color.  So it looks like these are Agrocybe dura! :smile:  Hope you enjoyed the pics.

Peace,

RebelSteve
