Looks like a liberty cap...
    #326914 - 05/27/01 11:58 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I found some mushrooms growing singly in my yard. They look very similar to Ps. Simlenceata (Spelling). The spore print is the same color as cubensis, the gills are attached to the stem, and there was no veil present. These did not blue.
By the way i live in northern ohio, about 12 miles south of the lake. Im pretty sure its not a liberty cap, but theirs a specie that resembles liberty caps. Any clue?

I was thinking possibly Ps. Caeruplies, Im told that they grow in ohio. Of course, i have no clue because im inexperienced at hunting. I'll have to get a picture of some in their native habitat. I dont have a digi camera, and the ones i picked already dried. They are very petite shrooms.

Ok. I just went outside and found about 250 of these bad boys, occuring mostly singly throughout the yard. These were found in freshly cut (3 days) grass. The fruit bodies are very petite, the smallest 2.5 inches, the largest 3 3/4. Caps are 1/2 to 1 inch. These look similar to Psilocybe inquilina and Psilocybe subfimetaria. They do not bruise blue. They have a dark purple spore print, attached gills, and their is no sign of a veil. Once again, I live 12 miles south of lake erie in northen ohio. I have no idea what these are, just a shot in the dark.

There are no cows that shit on my front lawn, but I used to have a dog that shit everywhere.

I think there are at least 2 species in this patch. Some caps are very dark, some are light. Some of the mushrooms have a funny design on top from sporulation, sort of like pictures ive seen of panaeolus subbalteus. The weather here has been about 60-65 all week if that gives anyone ideas. I took 9 sporeprints, and will send them out to any experienced person that wants em. Once again, I have no idea what these are, so don't get your hopes up.

New Update: I just checked out some pictures of Panaeolus foenisecii at http://www.grzyby.pl/gatunki/Panaeolus_foenisecii.htm

These look EXACTLY like what I have. Does anyone have any additional info on these?

#1. Do these bastards grow in ohio?
#2. Do these bruise blue (mine dont)
#3. Are these psychoactive?

ANyone know how I can ID these for sure?

Y9u can read my article on panaeolina foenisecii Maire.

They are not psychoactive at all and do not stain blue. They are referred to as the haymower's Mushrooms becasue they are in many lawns around harvest time .

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.
