Hi, well about a week ago I got mushrooms demystified, and had been reading it hardcore for this week. Ever since I started reading ive been more perceptive about lawns and parks, and today I found two really nice looking mushrooms on a lawn - this was a welcome change from the traditional LBM that swarm the place. A little info on the surrouning - It was found in quebec (north eastern north america) on a treeless lawn. It's been raining a lot and the temperature lately have been between 10-15 degrees celcius. The mushrooms grew alone - I tried to make a print but got this mess instead
I did rub my finger on it and had specs of brown here and there but that might not be spores i dunno...
Here are pictures of the mushroom - I had a hard time taking a pic of the stem and this is actually the clearest picture of the stem I have - it was solitaire on the lawn aside from another completely different mushroom growing beside it which i will post when I have an estimate of what it is.
I followed the key and I believe it to be a Leccinum Manzanitae mushroom but im not sure because it was growing in the middle of a lawn without any wood to grow on so that wouldnt make much sense. What do you guys think it is? Those warts on the cap look really neat :p
