Aliright Well i found this growing on a moulch bed in like a cluster of 6 or 7. Dont think this is fully matured b/c the cap hasnt opened yet. As you can see in photos that it bruises a kinda dark red/ brown color. The stem is 3 inches and cap is 1 inch. The cap has some "cracks" in it. Ill post back with spore print and gill characteristics.
It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification. A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable. Along with the pictures (if possible), please include the following: a. Habitat (where [state/province/country] and what does it grow on) b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc) c. Measurements of cap and stem. d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc) e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc) f. Spore print color (very important!) g. Color that the mushroom bruises h. Scent of mushroom
