Lawn

Woodchips

I'm posting these for a friend, so I didn't bother asking him the preliminary questions
He's getting spore prints now and if you can't ID these from the pictures, then I will ask him

Oh, and I don't care about the specifics of it, if you KNOW that it is not active or edible, then please do not ask me to elaborate on the characteristics of the mushroom

Thanks a bunch!

OK. If all you're interested in is if they're active or edible, that makes it quicker.

None of them are active.

#2 looks like a common edible species, Coprinus micaceus. To verify the ID, look closely at the caps (you'll probably need a magnifier) and see if there are any tiny, mica-like (like glitter) particles on the surface. If so, then that's definitely what they are. They are edible if you get to them while they're still young and the gills are still white. Once they get a bit older and the gills turn black they're too nasty to eat.

It's possible that some of the others are edible, but their identification would be much more difficult than for #2. I wouldn't bother thinking much about eating any of them, except #2.

Happy mushrooming!

They can be washed off by rain or sprinkler systems. The ones in the photo are much too old to eat anyway.

Watch for mushrooms that look like those (they'll usually be in big clusters). If the gills are still white, then look for the mica-like particles. The cap doesn't have to be covered with them. Especially with older specimens there might be only a very few on the cap.

Happy mushrooming!

#3 appears to be some type of Psathyrella, probably P. velutina
