Some help identifying please
    #2782638 - 06/10/04 07:04 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I went hunting this afternoon and came across a mushroom that i've
been having trouble identifying (i haven't been hunting in such a long time). Some help would be great!

Description
Geography: Eastern US (North Carolina)
Location: wooded area, growing in decomposing leaves sticks etc. on
ground
Cap width: About 3-5 cm
Cap description: light tan brown in center of cap, tip slightly
pointed upward resembling a nipple
Had gills, color brown-dark brown
Spore print: brown (could not get a good print because the mushroom
was mature and already lost most spores before i picked it
Stem width: 3-5mm (mushroom braudens a bit at the base)
Stem length:7-9cm (slightly curved)
Other: I checked for blue brusing but it had none

I'll check the location again after the next rain to find a fresher
specimen and maybe post some pictures

Your description is a good one for an LBM (Little Brown Mushroom). David Arora has an amusing bit in Mushrooms Demystified about LBMs. The short version is that the vast majority of LBMs are destined to never be identified.

To have any hope of identification we would need a much much more detailed description. Even then the chances aren't always good.

Happy mushrooming!

Hmm... Ok let me think of some more details. The stem is hollow in the center, the stem itself is fiberous, with age the mushroom edge curls upwards. Bruses a bit grey (questionable color not really grey), was a loner not in any kind of group or cluster.

I don't know if that will help any. Luckly it looks like its going to rain tonight and I might get some better specimens tomarrow
