I found this first shroom in my compost pile growing on some grass clippings in Connecticut. It looks like a panaeolus but i cant figure out what species it is (could be a sub?) The cap has more rings around it than a foen and the stem is darker and thicker, so i dont think it could be a foen. Here is a description: Cap: 3 rings, first dark brown, then light brown, then dark brown again, about 2cm diameter Gills: Dark brown Sporeprint: Black Stem - brownish, 5mm thick Habitat: Growing in grass clippings Here are some pictures:
I also found another shroom that looks to be a panaeolus (maybe a foen) but i cant tell which. Cap: Orangeish at the top, then getting whiter towards the bottom Gills: Light brown Spore print: Im making this now Here are some pics of the second shroom:
If anyone can help me ID these id really appreciate it.
The top one looks like a bell cap panoleus, but I am from Canada and know nothing about your zone...just a guess. Interesting though I just picked some bell cap panoleus shrooms yesterday here, and they do look identical to those. What is your temperature outdoors now, and what was the ground where you picked that shroom (top one) like...
Well, i know the top one is active because i ate a few and got a nice body buzz and a light trip (i know its incredibly stupid to eat unID'd mushrooms but i was 100% sure it was a panaeolus of some sort and i know they are all safe to eat). The bottom one i am still relatively unsure of.
