First Hunt ID help-- Liberty Caps Galore?
    #3003762 - 08/14/04 09:48 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

a. Habitat: Eastern PA, 1/4 mi from Delaware River
b. Characteristics of the gills: check out that pic! they're
much much darker now... nearly black!
c. Measurements of cap and stem: Cap: diam: .75- 2 cm, taller than
wide. Stem: 5-9 cm, 2 mm diam
d. Characteristics of the stem: Hollow and delicate, fibrous,
darker toward base, narly pure white at top.
e. Characteristics of the cap: Slimy at first; nippled (darker, protruding)
some paler than others; color is balanced in pic.
f. Spore Print: distinct rust color @ 30 mins...
g. Color that the mushroom bruises: no bruises as of yet
h. Scent of mushroom: like p.cubes (that's all I can really say)




there are tons of these growing all over my campus. they use good fertilizer... and we had such a killer rain the other night.

let me know please! so far i've been aligning perfectly w/ a guide but i want to see what pros have to say!

peace.

conocybe lactea
not active, possibly toxic
really looks nothing like a liberty cap,
wrong color,
wrong morphology
wrong sporeprint
wrong habitat,
wrong time of year
lacks translucent pellicle

thats about it

"Eastern PA, 1/4 mi from Delaware River"
"but on my second round out, i found six of (what i'm thinking) might be the actual thing..."

these two statements do not compute for a hot mid-august.

you really aren't going to find libs till at least late september.

i usually dont find them in any quantity till oct. and im farther north
