If you check the FAQs, there are descriptions there for the types of habitats that each species tends to favor.

The best way to find them is then to look for areas that match the habitat. There is also the issue of timing. Many mushrooms will come up for only a few weeks out of the year.

Your best bet is to go to various places that might have mushrooms, find some, then bring some back and get them identified. Keep track of what you found and what they are. After awhile, you should eventually get to know the species in the areas you're hunting.

Also, get a good book. For your area of the country, I'd recommend Mushrooms of Northeastern North America by Alan Bessette, Arleen Bessette, and David Fischer. For more recommendations, read the FAQs.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!

yea, besides, there arent psychoactive cow pasture mushrooms growing in Virginia as far as i can remember. your likely to find some related species though and that would help you with identification and would be fun and all.

your best bet is Panaeolus subbalteatus, which grows in horse manure/compost piles. look around horse ranches.
