Active or not?
    #2718014 - 05/23/04 12:56 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Today was my first time out mushroom hunting. I wasn't too serious about it, just hoping I would find a little something. I found what seems to be two different types of mushrooms, but they didn't look like any active ones I've seen. I have no pictures but information on both.

Habitat: Both were found in hay in northeastern Massachusetts.

Gills: (1)Not attached. (2)Cap hasn't opened yet.

Measurements: Cap(1)-3.8cm (2)Hasnt opened but I would estimate about 3.2cm
Stem:(1)8.5cm (2)5cm

Characteristics: Stem(1)-White, hallow (2)Also white and hallow. Has a patch of orange near the bottom
Cap(1)-It just rained this morning and it seems to be secreting a black, liquidy substance which covers the cap. Not entirely sure thats its original color. Has a spot of orange at the top. Kinda pointy.
(2)Orangish around the top and gets lighter towards the bottom, almost white.

Spore Print: Not quite sure, yet.

Bruises: (1) Doesnt seem to bruise (2)Bluish

Scent: Both smell like grass.

Some good info there, but we need pics :-) The bluish bruising you mention of shroom 2 sounds promising...

Peace, love and organic brown rice...

the first one sounds like maybe some sort of coprinus (inky cap) cause of the black liquidy substance...
