ID+do you think i stumbled on someone else's mushrooms?
    #2790128 - 06/13/04 05:00 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I posted this awhile ago along with poison ivy thing. I never got any anwsers to this part

While I was out I found this patch of mushrooms growing around a tree. A few feet away is a decent sized log (10 feet) covered with more of the same mushroom growing. A few feet from that is a huge dead tree, also covered in these mushrooms. I've been watching these babies often. Every once in a while I'll go back and one or two of three patches will be gone. When ever the patch is gone, most of the stems are there. I guess something natural could be happening..I've also found an empty bag of humus next in this little area. Does this sound like someone is growing them? I can't imagine that that many mushrooms would just disappear. I don't plan on taking any of these, so don't worry. I did take one cap in order to make a spore print though. This is the third flush I've seen grow now. Here is a description of the average mushroom there.

Cap-4-6 cm, convex,Umbonate, moist/sticky, can be scaly with aging, smells a bit like almond

Gills- are a a good distance apart, grey-black

stalk-central, 6-10 cm tall, 1 or 2 cm thick, bulb at base, Fibrous, white, fairly soft

Veil-universal when young, mushroom tip is gold with veil. No piece of the veil is left though.

spore print-black

Habitat-Decaying hardwoods, like i said before, one patch grows around a tree's trunk, one grows on a log, one grows on a dead tree. There are about 50-75 in each patch

Thanks to anyone who can answer. I can get pictures if you'd like.

Since I posted that I have seen the dead tree(fallen over) sprout a huge flush(on a hot day, about 24 hours after rain) They were pretty mature then. With the almost flat cap. These all spread in a much larger area than usual. Parts of the tree have been broken to get to new spots on the ground where spores must have reached a while back. Also, there are some pinning out of the dead stuff around the live tree. Like I said, I can get pictures.

Sounds like some sort od Panaeolus; I couldn't say which species. Try taking a picture. If they are growing in the wild, they are no one's mushroom.

Pans wouldn't be growing on wood. maybe coprinus but some of your description doesn't quite match up with any of them I know either. Whatever they are, they aren't active, but a pic would help if you want an ID.
