First active find? (ID please)
    #2018613 - 10/17/03 08:03 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Found these growing on my lawn along with a bunch of other various mushrooms! i believe they are p.stunzii but i will get your guys' opinion as well!

a. Habitat: Grownin on my very wet lawn after the rain
b. gills: lighter brown in the young ones, very dark brown on the more mature one, mostly attatched to the stem.
c. measurements: about 1-2 in. diameter for cap, stem 1-3inches
d. Characteristics of the stem: seems to be hollow, light brown fading to whiter at the base, base gets slightly larger. Had a blue veil at the time of picking. (sorry the pic is blurry)
e. Characteristics of the cap: Tan-ish colored, with a nipple on top, slimy when it was picked. edges curve down, can see the gill lines in the cap when wet.
f. Spore print: dark purple (picture doesn't look like it, but it was dark purple)
g. Bruise: slightly blue, not very intense
h. Smells like a normal mushroom but a bit more earthy.



The blue veil can be seen on the stem in this picture (sorry its blurry, but you can kinda see it)





If these are indeed stunzii, how could i make them grow more? i left them there hoping they would spawn more. there were the three in the picture and two small pins next to them.

thanks!

aside from the stipe [wich should not really be hollow] if your description is correct they do seem to be P. stuntzii.

hollo was a typo...

oh well. if this feature is untrue and the rest of your description is correct you appear to have P. stuntzii.

wait at least untill you get confirmation from another person on the FAQ's list of trustworthy identifiers before you consider consumption.

I think p. firmetaria. the nipple on the cap as well as the cap shape all indicate the firmetaria. which is one of the blue ringers along with p. stuntzii.

if the sign says dont pick the mushrooms, you should probably pick them

P. fimentaria are uncommon on lawns. they predominate on dung but are know to fruit from manured grass.

Kodama: do you use dung based fertilizer?

P. fimetaria can also grow in woodchips soil and mulchy areass as well as fertilized lawns with manure in the topsoils of the law3ns or the sod.
Here are three images of P. Fimetaria growing in woodchips and earth







What you appear to have in your images are Psilocybe stuntzii var. tenuis, a more lighter colored stuntzii (blue ringer) with a move vconical convexwed cap and less of an incurved margin. Here is some of the same images form my library:







and here is one more of the P. stuntzii var. tenuis:

ahh yes the var tenius. didnt think about that. found some sweet woodloving stuntzii yesterday with cardboard. my astoria plan got put on hold for a week so did a lot of wandering. I still say firmetaria though. wish I had a better pic to look at.
