ok, I know this is like the third post in 3 days or something, but I am really interested to know what these are. couldnt really say, these look alot like the mushrooms which I tripped off last year. Only thing is I didnt know what they were at the time and were indistinguishable due to being A couple of days old and reduced to black, fleshy crap. Anyway, I picked these last week at the bottom of my drive and then disposed of them due to decomposing. They were growing in long grass off the side of A tree stump, or off cut branch. Only the heads of the mushrooms were above the grass and are therefore very hard to retrieve, they pretty much crumble with any contact so I have A bit of trouble picking them. Anyway, I am really interested to know if these are hallucinogenic as I found more growing there today, maybe about 30, 40. Only problem is that they are growing directly in front of my neighbours window but I just dont know wether they will still be there tonight, or if they will have just withered and died. I am currently making A spore print and will reply when it is done. Sorry for the pics, you know the deal. Oh, and by the way, these mushrooms ooze some kind of black oily substance, if you pick them it gets all over your hands and seems to be strong enough to stain.

ok, the spore print came out jet blac, but I am not entirely certain wether that is A spore print, or just the black liquid leaving A print. Anyway, these dont appeat to bruise blue, but they are similiar to the ones that I was sold which also didnt have any blue bruising and were certainly active.

Hmmmm, after A bit of A hunt A am beginning to think this may be Coprinus micaceus. Not too sure tho, A pity as I am now ready for another hallucinogenic experience. Oh well, ill keep looking.

^^^^^^^^ Like they said Coprinus. The reason the mushrooms you bought didn't bruise is that mushrooms don't bruise after being dried. You never said where you lived, aboutst, but there really are NO mushrooms that resemble the ones you posted which are sold for the purposes mentioned.

Peace - @cro

Those are close to Coprinus micaceus. They are almost certainly in section Veliformes and subsection either Micacei or Domestici. A quick verification that they are C. micaceus can be accomplished by examining the surface of the cap of a young specimen. It should have several tiny mica-like flakes (you may have to use a magnifying glass to see them). If you can see those, then they are definitely C. micaceus. Even if you can't find any they still might be, although then we need to consider species such as C. domesticus.


teen, the photo you linked to is somewhat similar in appearance, but if you read the description you will note that C. miser only grows on dung. The mushrooms Jamic is describing are growing from wood. While photographs can be useful for identification, you cannot identify mushrooms only by comparing to photos. Lots of people are poisoned every year by that exact mistake. If you use photos to try and identify, make sure you follow up by comparing the entire, detailed description to the mushrooms. Any significant differences indicate that you've found a different mushroom.

Happy mushrooming!
