Pictures of an unidientified mushroom
    #3126488 - 09/12/04 06:38 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Can someone please take a look at those pictures and tell me if the know what mushroom those are?

I found them in a field with allot of Psilocybin Semilanceata, but they don't look like them. What I am curious about is that I'we heard several times people talk about the bluening is something one should check out when identifying a mushroom. Well these mushrooms had a blue-ish overcast when I found them, the color hasn't changed since I picked them (about 5 hours from now).

Here I am going to answer the basic questions:
a. Habitat
They were found in Iceland in low grass.

b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
See pictures

c. Measurements of cap and stem.
The stem is about 3-4 mm wide
The cap is from 0.5 to 1.3 cm wide

d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
Solid, rather thick

e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
Overall feel(touch) of the mushroom is quite similar to Psilocybin Semilanceata. About the same feel when you peel it appart.

f. Spore print color (very important!)
I am currently taking the print.

g. Color that the mushroom bruises
No change in color that I notice. Although I am not quite sure what this question is about.

h. Scent of mushroom
I couldn't tell...

Here are the pictures:

I'm thinking some species of Cortinarius due to the cobweb-like veil (cortina) and terrestrial habitat. If this guess is correct, then they are inactive and possibly poisonous. I think the spore print should be rust brown.

Hmmm... Those are some very interesting mushrooms!!!!

I would be lying if I said I knew what they were.

They defiently have that Psilocybe look to them, but, I would guess they would be Stropharia.

Wait until someone else chimes in.

Stropharia aeruginosa, S. caerulea or something similar is what I was thinking as well.

Stropharia aeruginosa, i've always wanted to find that mushroom.

It is not-active..

The book Mushrooms Demystified also notes
these as similar species;
Stropharia albocyanea
Pholiota subcaerulea

Nice find and cool pictures
thanks for sharing.

I think it is more of a green bruising.
