Need some help ID'ing
    #1907005 - 09/11/03 09:15 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

After finally getting some Washington rain, went out foraging to satisfy m'new hobby and thankfully found a patch of mushrooms in a buddy's yard. Thought they were Liberty Caps at first, but upon closer examination there are some differences I wanted to throw at more experienced mycologists for safety's sake )

Sadly I don't have any means at the moment to upload the pics, but will try to describe 'em.  All about an inch tall and all were found in a close cropped lawn, within 6 or so inches of each other. Cap's are slightly conicle, and are primarily cream colored, with some occasional light browns. Most caps are 1/4 to 1/2 an inch wide. Couldn't find a pellicle on any, even after moistening. Smooth to the touch, with no slime.

Gills are colored like the caps, only a slightly lighter shade. Stems are thin and semi fragile, usually breaking if tried to wrap around one's finger. Most are a slight yellow, almost hay color. Seem to bruise to a darker brown.

By this point I thought they were pelliculosa, but upon taking spore prints, the bastards came out white, or close to white(Damned boar vision) so with that and no pellicle, am puzzled. Found some pics at Mushroom John's as the closest point of visual reference I could find.

If anyone could toss some help my way I'd dig it  :thumbup:

white spored suggests Mycena.

Wondered about that, but will they grow out of lawns? All my sources said they took root out of wood substrates, so wasn't sure.

Also wanted to add most of the larger mature ones have a bit of a nipple on top.

there are some very common grassland species of Mycena - their habitats extend from soil to herbaceous debris to wood. The rest of the description fits well, including the nipple, so I think it's likely Magma got it.

Another possiblilty would be Conocybe, but, they will have a brown colored print. Could be that you didnt get a good print form them, and got nothing.

Thanks fer the help all, think I got it narrowed down to Mycena Aetites, after more research thanks to Mag. Did four spore prints, on black and white paper with only white showing up, no rust, so probably not Conocybe, would definitely be the next possibility though.
