Identification please?
    #2021276 - 10/18/03 09:56 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

New to the whole shroom hunting process... Please forgive any ignorance or oversight on my part.

Habitat- Growing in Western Washington, grassy / sedge pasture. Lots of tall grass. Growing in clumps.
Gills- beige, with an almost grey/purple tinge? Gills attached to stem.
Caps are 1-2.5 cm in diameter, 1-2.5 cm tall as well.
Stems are 7-15 cm long, 2 mm in width.
Stems are pale, whitish or slightly brown. Hollow, flexible (can be wrapped around one's finger, etc.)
Caps are brown at the base, most are cream / beige on top. There are also a few darker ones; brown to grey. The darker ones have a slightly more pronounced "nipple" while the lighter type are essentially rounded on top. Just old, or different shrooms? (Dark one is on the left in the picture)
All caps are conical, concave (relative to the stem.. opens downward, as an inverted cup).

Spore print is forthcoming, will provide if needed.

No bruising is yet apparent. No distinct scent (apart from 'fungus').

Thanks a lot for the help, keeping my fingers crossed.





PS: Sorry about the crappy image quality, best I can do.

i am fairly sure they are not P. semilanceata if thats what you were hoping for. spore print will be helpful and will confirm this.

as for what they are the bottom one looks like a Coprinus and a different specimen then the rest. the top ones remind me of Bolbitius.

I'd say Conocybe and Bolbitius are safe bets for the genus of these mushrooms. They're not active, and some Conocybes are deadly. Do not eat.
