first specimen id - checking if im correct
    #2978673 - 08/08/04 05:29 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

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

We really need to see the surface of the stem in detail. Also, is the stem hollow or solid (sut it in half vertically to find out).

Do the tubes bruise to another color?

Happy mushrooming!
