Unidentified blueing object
    #1841327 - 08/22/03 06:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Today I went hunting and found afew cubes, nothing to talk of but I also found a LBM that bruised blue as hell. I would post a picture but my sisters camera is shitty and you can't see anything to use as an indifying feature in the pictures.

The mushroom is aproximately 1 1/2 inches long with a cap the size of a pencil eraser.
The color of the cap is white with a tan tint in the middle fading out towards the edges.
There was no viel.
The stem was tannish white and kind of scaly.
Immediately upon picking it started to bruise a deep blue.
The stem at this point is black.
It has been about two hours since it was picked.
The spore print is black.
The gills are not close and they are attached.

I know that this is a long shot and I wished I had pictures to post, but I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what this may be.

The mushroom was found in Southwest Georgia.

it may be a Copelandia (Panaeolus) cyanescens but from those details it is hard to determine what it is. from the size, color and intense bluing reaction it looks to be that species.

Yeah, from the description, it really points to Copelandia cyanescens.

It was growing from dung, correct?

You should go to google.com, click on "images" and do a search. See what you come up with!

The size of the mushroom made wonder about copelandia cyanescens. I was under the impression the they were larger.

The mushroom was growing on cow dung.

I'm going to try to cultivate they spores and then if everything goes good I'll be able to post a picture of the mushroom.

If I find more of them I'll try to get a better picture as well.
