i was looking around my yard today and noticed a patch of mushrooms growing below my tree. and i looked closer and seen they were comming from the bark in the ground but not a piece a bunch ground up some how. so i picked them and tryed to match them and aint really comming up with nothing this is what they look like

cap:top is a light light tan and fading to bluish purpleish as it gets to the bottom.some bell shape some older fully like a disk even a few a bit turned up

stem: all white twisted and pulled and no other color just a off white

size:baby ones 3 in mature 7in

print:dark purple dark like cubes
gills on some small ones r white and some r dark from spores droping and rain
these were in clusters of half pounds wet seem to have roots with evedince of dirt also right at the base of the tree

A picture would be great, but from that description I would say they are probably Coprinus micaceus.

That sounds like a good guess to me.

Good job with the description, MagicSnoop.  A little more detail/clarity would be nice, but you did a better job than some people.  Good  job getting a spore print, too! :laugh:

Ase, that link did not work for me.  There is a picture of Coprinus micaceous  here on Effed's site (third row down on the right).  If you do a search for it on google or mamma.com, i'm sure you will find some more images of them to compare the shrooms you found to.
