ID Help??
    #2735650 - 05/27/04 08:58 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I found these growing in the grass in NJ. They have light brown gills with white edges. The spore print i took came out a light purplish grey (not a dark black). The stems are pretty sturdy, but hollow inside. The stems also appear to have a slight white fuzz up near the cap. I also noticed what i thought to be blue bruising on the stem.

Ok...i took the print again, but this time let it sit MUCH longer than before. This time it came out (what appears to me) to be dark black, but i'm no expert.

Are all brown sporeprints easily distinguishable from blacks? Are there any tricks to get a definite ID on spore color, or does that just come with experience? Aside from using a microscope, which i don't have.

Yeah, I've never seen a brown print that I would confuse with black, but YMMV I guess...

You can't get a definite ID based only on spore color, it's just one of the main things to consider, you need other characterictics to get down to the species level...

I have no experience with this mushroom so I could be wrong, but based on your pics and info, I think you *might* have Psathyrella velutina .
