Noobs second post
    #3196459 - 09/29/04 06:44 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This is the second section of a post I put in general questions earlier today. Was advised that this part of that post would have better response in this section of the forums. I am in the process of educating myself on identification and posted some questions regarding this in the original.
Sorry for the partial redundancy.

I found the items in the picture below just by chance this morning. They were located up in the hills near Olympia WA in an area that is very wet most of the time right now, but not yet freezing at night. They were growing in patches in semi deep green/yellow grass. It was a totally accidental find - I actually ended up stranded in my car at this location all night until somebody could come up with a needed equipment. I was stretching my arms and yawning in the morning mist when I looked down and the whole patch was right at my feet exactly where I had parked. I briefly searched the surrounding area for other patches but only found the occasional single fruit here and there.

These look like what I recall eating as LC's in the past, but I of course cannot rely on my memory as to any sort of ID. I am still trying to get the hang of taking a good picture with my dig cam - so I can probably improve the quality if these look like they might be the real thing. Thought this might be good enough to start with.

Any info and comments are greatly appreciated.

Be Well.....

The items are actually washed out a bit colorwise in this photo - they are a good deal "browner" in reality:

They look similar to Liberties, but I can't really tell from the photo. Get more opinions, I'm new at this.

Probibly not liberty caps,

Spore prints would help in this case.

They appear to be a species of Conocybe, However the color is off.

And no, they are not Psilocybe semilanceata and they are not psychoactive.

They "ALMOST" have the right shape from what i can tell, but yet again the colors appear to be way off.

Negative, ghost rider. The caps on those mushrooms are way too broadly conical, and lack an umbo or an inrolled margin.

Thank you for the posts! I just got back from the library where I picked up a field guide for northwest shrooms. While I was there going through the pages it was pictures of the conocybe family that sure seemed like a match to me also. I guess there are some similarities between some Conocybes and Psathyrella that make them hard to tell apart.

I need to learn some of the terminology around gill structures, as this seems like an important feature. Just based on what I can understand right now (geographic locale, diameter/shape/length/color of stem, diameter/shape/color of cap my best guess would be Conocybes tenera (Brown dunce cap).

It was sobering to read that Conocybes filaris is a nearly identical shroom to this one and is deadly poisonous.

Thanks again.
