    #26990372 - 10/17/20 06:07 PM (8 days, 14 hours ago)

Hello all, my first post here after lurking for a few months!Have been on my first foraging trip on Dartmoor today. Hope I've given all the info necessary for ID :smile: thanks in advance for any help with ID

Habitat:
SW England, all found on grassy patches on the moors with horses, cows and sheep grazing in the area. Around 400m above sea level

Lot 1 and 2,pretty sure these are all liberty caps:


Gills:
Stained dark with spores

Stem:
2-9cm long, up to 3mm thick, stems pale when fresh, some turning blue/brown while drying. Mostly thin wavy stems

Cap:
Diameter up to 1.5 cm, pale brown conical caps with dark spore staining on the bottom. Small umbo.

Bruising:
Some turning blue, most going darker brown when drying out

Lot 3:


Gills:
Pale Amber gills, no spores visible

Stem:
Up to 5 cm long, around a mm thick. Pale stems, some are a bit wavy

Cap:
Diameter up to 0.5 cm, pale, almost white conical caps. Some seem to have a small umbo.

Lot 4:


Gills:
Amber/orange gills, no spores visible

Stem:
Up to 6 cm long, around a mm thick. Pale orange stems.

Cap:
Diameter up to 0.5 cm, pale orang-y conical caps. Some seem to have a small umbo. Bottom is a bit wavy?

Lot 6: liberty cap but no umbo?



Gills:
Pale colour

Stem:
3 cm long, 1mm thick, stem turning blue while drying. Some dark purple spore staining on the stem.

Cap:
Diameter 0.6 cm, pale brown conical cap.  No umbo?

Bruising:
Some turning blue

Lot 7: I think all liberty caps?



Gills:
Stained dark with spores

Stem:
2-7cm long, up to 2mm thick, some stems pale, some dark when fresh, Mostly thin wavy stems

Cap:
Diameter up to 1.5 cm, pale brown conical caps with dark spore staining on the bottom. Small umbo.

Lot 8-15:



8, 10 and 13 potentially libs?
12: looked like they had a nice umbo but gills are a pinkish brown colour. Stems are not wavy
14:dark gills and small umbo but fragile stem. Not the right colour brown?

Your instincts are largely correct. Lot 1 and 2 and 6 and 7 look all good. Lot 3, lot 5 and that big yun in the middle of lot 4 should go in the bin.

Whilst I agree there are a lot of potentials in Lot 8-15 Compared to the others they look like duds so I’d get em chucked!
