Mushrooms popping up all over my yard. ID?
    #3270074 - 10/24/04 03:05 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Took a little walk around my property and found lots of mushrooms.  Anybody able to help me ID.  Not planning on consuming these, just curious what they are.

All found in suburban Northern Virgina.
Here's the pic's and descriptions:

Mushroom (a)
~Found in grass under pine trees.
~orange/yellow caps with white warts
~averaged around 5 inches high
~fully opened caps around 4-6 inches across






and here's on little guy that is returning to the ground..


I think are Amantia Muscaria.  Absolutely beautiful!



These next ones were growing in an area of the yard which has the stump of a maple tree which was cut down 5 years ago. Also found in grass.


~growing in clusters
~3 inches high with caps about 3/4" across
~very little smell
~dark spore print..almost a deep coffee brown
~Coprinus Micaceus, think I'm correct?  Did I give enough info for an ID?

Doh!  I just maxed out my pic upload limit!  I have some better pics of this one which will have to wait. Sorry.  :frown:Guess thats a sign I should go to bed.

The remaining ones I have no idea what they are.  When I get pictures posted I'll try this again. I'll save the rest for tomorrow.
Thanks guys!  Peace!

I think the all white one in pic #2 is poisonous. I have little expertise though. Nice specimen and pics.

Sometimes the color pigment fades or is washed away in aminitas.. It looks like the white one has faded from yellow.

Your last pic and description does not really match coprinus micaceus. The pic only shows the cap surface. Coprinus species will drop black spores, the gills should also become a dark ink-like fluid with age.

Eris, just checked the cap of the second mushroom and it is doing exactly what you describe....black inky fluid (picked about 10 hours ago). & the spore print is defiantly darker now. I think it seemed dark brown because I only let it drop for 20 minutes or so...a very light print. I'll be a little more patient next time. I'll get better pictures of the individual mushrooms tomorrow.

Thanks!

The pics are good. Sounds like you do have coprinus.
There are a lot of mushrooms that look the same from the top view, descriptions are important. The combination of black spores and inky gills makes coprinus rather easy to ID to genus.

According to Terence McKenna, ants will become an intelligent species very soon, if they continue like this! Or aren't we talking about amanita pantherina? (I'm not so sure)

yellow amanita is not muscaria, im no TI but def wait until you get a ti to look at that before u would eat, i have mistaken that before seeing as the muscaria is supposed to be more orange or yellow in eastern US. id like to know what that is cuz i found tons of them in pa, pm if u want a pic or two.... that is probably poisounus
