I think we'll need a bit more description than that. Or maybe a photo or something.

Happy mushrooming!

That's better. Maybe you didn't have the right setting in the "Make post" drop-down list?

Those are Coprinus, and look like Coprinus comatus, Shaggy Manes. Unfortunately, by now they've probably turned into inedible, vile goo.

Happy mushrooming!

Interesting - the caps in your new photo don't look the same. What color are they? In the first photos they look white - now they look brownish. Are they covered with scales that can easily be rubbed or washed off? Is there any odor?

Don't eat them quite yet. Your first photos looked like small, immature Shaggy Manes. Your new photo looks like other species, and there are some species in Coprinus that you don't want to eat.

If they're one of the edible species, then you want to eat them while the gills are still shite. Once they start to turn color they're nasty.

Let us know, and maybe you can eat them.

Happy mushrooming!

The lack of a nasty odor is promising.

From where they were growing could you see a mat of mycelium? It would probably look sort of like mold, and be colored anywhere from white to yellow, orangish, or brown. If so, the color is important.

Also, could you show us what the very young specimens and very old specimens look like? On the young ones we need to know if there's a coating of hair-like fibers on the cap or stem (and what color they are). On the old ones it's important to know what shape the cap eventually becomes as they go nasty.

Keep us posted, we're getting close finally. These particular ones are tougher than they look at first - mostly because I don't want to get it wrong, especially if you're going to eat them.

Happy mushrooming!

The scales near the center of the cap on the Old and Nasty are not good, if you want to eat them. From that, they seem to resemble Coprinus cinereus or Coprinus flocculosus, neither of which should be eaten.

They are not one of the easy species of the genus to identify - we'll probably need a microscope to identify them accurately.

Sorry for the bad news. I wouldn't eat them. Some of the Coprinus cause gastric upset (read nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea), so it's probably not worth the risk.

Happy mushrooming!

i would say get a nice Coprinus key online or from a book in a store and try to id them using their exact features. it is highly probable to id them like. in my opinion, Coprinus are fairly easy to identify with a guide, compared to Strophariaceae or Tricholomataceae. :smile:

check these out:

you can classify your specimens into subgenuses and then go from there. although by now they may be fairly old try anyway. that site is very good.
