Mushroom question
    #2762835 - 06/04/04 12:16 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I'm quite the novice mushroom hunter, and I've yet to find an active species that I could be sure of. But, last night at 4 AM, after it had rained, I went to a cow pasture and picked about a handful (I had to get out of there quickly, there were people moving around at the farm.) of silvery, almost translucent mushrooms off of cow manure. They seemed to be almost over absorbed by water, as the caps melted away while attempting a spore print, as did the ones that were lying beside them on the table.

I don't have a camera (yet), so I'll try to describe them...

Cap: concave, translucent silver, with a gold dot where the stem attaches.

Stem: 2-3 inches long, hollow, white, can be wrapped around finger.

Gills: silvery, attached to the the stem

Location: cow manure, near a large puddle in a pasture in Eastern Massachusetts, USA

Bruising: not that I've been able to observe

No spore print.. immposible to do. I dunno, can anyone do an ID from this description alone? Or at least a guess?

-------

Also, I found what look like very young amanitas growing by the train tracks in my town, anyone have a picture of the active amanitas at the beginning stages of their growth for reference?

likely Coprinus Picaceus or Coprinus lagopus

I looked at both of those species, and neither of them seem to match the descriptions given by mykoweb... No white hairs, and it doesn't look like the picture of picaceus, although that obviously doesn't mean much.

Coprinus, I'm pretty sure. Nothing active anyway, sorry.

Whatever, man, it's just cool to find some. I am aiming to find active species, but any type of find is exciting in itself.
