Hm. Michigan Mushroom.
    #2868648 - 07/08/04 01:50 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hello. I'm not normally a person who looks for mushrooms of the psychadelic nature but on my morning walk I stumbled upon a cow pie. And on that cow pie I saw a mushroom.

So I pciked it and brought it home. I got a spore print and it's jet black. The stem is also dark. I don't have a digital camera just a scanner. Do you know if this is even an edible mushroom? Thank you.

Welcome :smile:

You probably have some species of Panaeolus.

Type up a better  description, throw it on the scanner and post an image and we might be able to help you more.

DH was right, it's somw spcies of Panaeolus. inactive, not-toxic and not in the least worth eating.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I just have a follow up question. I was looking up Pan Subbs on erowid and it said not to pick ones up that were on dung. Why is that?
