Might I trouble you for a ID?
    #1735264 - 07/21/03 04:30 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Here are some mushrooms I have found, and am curious if anyone can help identify them. They are both have a cap that is 3 cm in diameter, they both smell like mushroom soup. I am currently taking a spore print and will update if needed. They were found recently in the southeast after a fairly rainy week, and were found growing on top of a bunch of decaying leaves in a deciduous area. They both have brown/black gills.

It would be helpful to see the undersides of those. Could you show us a side view and a view from directly underneath?

From what little can be seen, they're probably Agaricus species. Assuming that, you should also cut one in half (the fresher looking one) vertically and scrape the inside with your knife edge to bruise it, then let us know what color it turns. It can take up to an hour to change color, so watch for a couple minutes then check back after an hour.

Let us know, then we'll try for a better guess.

Happy mushrooming!
