So, the girls mushroom patches started fruiting an unknown mushroom before the EQ's popped up. The unknowns are a few inches tall and quite beefy with mycelium growing all over the caps, they look shaggy! The eq's are about 1.5", but she fears the environment might be too humid because of the garbage bag laying ontop. She lives in a semi arrid desert and wonders if it would be best to keep the garbage bags overtop, or just leaves and grass and such...*they might dry out?*

GO OUTSIDE.

"Inky Cap ? Coprinus spp.

These are evidence of free ammonia in the compost. Ammonia seems to be a nitrogen source. Their delicate gray caps autodigest quickly. Inky caps are indicators of nitrogen oversupplementation or a poorly managed Phase II compost. If there is too much residual ammonia, Phase II thermophilic microflora may be unable to convert all the ammonia into microbial protein. In addition, areas in the compost that did not remain within the range of 115 to 135 F from 72 to 96 hours after pasteurization may contain residual ammonia. This fungus is strongly cellulolytic."

I wouldn't go as far as to determine exactly what species is growing on your patch just by the information you just provided us with. There is a chance that fortyounces2freedom is right and they are inky caps, but to actually determine them, you should give some more info. Some photos would be ideal.

Also, I figure that if you're growing outdoors in an arid climate, it's not such a bad idea to have the garbage bags over your patch. Just keep an eye out for nasty contams which might rot your psilos away.
