Northern California (bay area) mushroom ID
    #2595621 - 04/23/04 06:26 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

My friend found this on the bank of a little runoff leftover from some rain we had the past couple days. I actually made a big mistake (I'm a mycology neophyte) and accidentally got the mushroom kinda saturated with water, so the spores seem to have gotten totally soaked and are all inky... unless that is natural for this species, but it wasn't like that when it was first picked. The spores were visible and black. If it's not apparent, the coloration is actually a light brown for the cap, kinda mottled on top. The stem is mostly white, and light brown near the bottom. the original coloration is obscured by the water/spore/inky crap. Sorry if these pictures are inadequate. I'll try to find some better lighting conditions, and better preserve future finds. Any idea what this is?



Sorry if there is not enough info here. I checked the FAQ and read the parts about helping identify mushrooms, but I don't quite have down the terms for the measurements and such, so I just put the bottlecap and pencil lead for scale.

Actually, I think I'll get some more of these and take a picture where they're located, instead of trying to take better pictures of this one. I'll have that in the next couple of days if nobody has a clue from these shoddy photos.

Coprinus (inky-caps) would be my guess. Not active. Some are edible some aren't.

Coprinus is right for the genus. i can't speak as to the species at the moment.
some species cause an adverse reaction when consumed within several days either way of alcohol. no species are active and only a slim few are worthy of cullinary interests.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
