Found these 2 mushrooms in a horse corral, where the horses have been asbsent from since summertime. They were the only 2 we find growing right next to each other on some hay /dirt /grass .
a. Habitat (where and what does it grow on)
Found in a horse corral (fenced off area for horses). Was growing in some dirt around old hay, grass, with horse shit nearby.
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
The gills are brown, attached to the cap, with no pores. c. Measurements of cap and stem.
The caps are about 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 long. Stem is about 1 1/2 long.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
Stem color is a shiny white color. It is soft to the touch, and very stringy ( when broken). Stem is hollow, thin and fragile. e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
Cap color is greyish brown, and very dark on the outer edges of the cap. f. Spore print color (very important!)
Just put them on some wax paper now , waitin for results. I want to also mention that on one of the shrooms , the stem had apparently given in to the weight of the cap because it was directly on the ground on top of its own stem. The part of the stem touching the gills is all black.
g. Color that the mushroom briuses
No bruising that i noticed, except that the outer rim on the caps is black or dark from when it was rolling around in the paper bag.
