Help To Identify Colorado Mushroom
    #3078206 - 09/01/04 04:03 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I know I don't have all the required information for a proper identification, but guesses would be appreciated.

I found this mushroom in my yard in Denver, Colorado. I have no spore print because the cap wasn't opened up yet. The stem was not so brown before I picked it. Smells rather mushroomery. Here is a picture of where it was growing.

The habitat strongly suggests that they are Chlorophyllum molybdites. The very similar looking Chlorophyllum rachodes (=Lepiota rachodes, yes they recently moved it there) only rarely grows in lawns - it is generally found under trees such as Ponderosa Pine.

Happy mushrooming!

I agree with ToxicMan... Looks like a Chlorophyllum molybdite
to me (aka Green Gills). A spore print should narrow the choices.
A C. moybdite will not kill you but from what I hear, will make you
wish you were dead (in between the puking and pissing out your
bung hole :eek:).

Good luck in your hunting!  :sun:

Namaste,

Peaceful Nomad
