Lawn Hunt *update - more pics*
    #3286973 - 10/27/04 11:17 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My lawn seems to be the only place around here than can grow anything:

SW Ontario
All found on a residential lawn


With a nice chocolate-brown sporeprint: Panaeolus foenisecii?




These ones had black prints:


I found these small ones but I think they're the same as the big ones:

Here's my guesses:

1. Agaricus sp.
2. Panaeolina foenisecii
3. Inocybe sp.

Inocybes can be deadly, some Agaricus are poisonous(some edible), and Panaeolina are inactive.

I second Gumby 1 & 3 yet I doubt any are pan foes.

Panaeolina foenisecii

I'm pretty sure the middle ones are panaeolina foenisecii, as I've found some of that species on my lawn before.

These look like more Agaricus sp.?
(prints will follow)

Those don't look much like Agaricus to me. Agaricus typically have pinkish gills when young turning into dark brown gills when older. Perhaps you have some species of Amanita or Lepotia(both genera contain deadly mushrooms).

Well I hadn't planned on eating any, so don't worry about that :wink:

These mushrooms all seemed to pop up overnight last night in the lawn. It rained most of last night and was still raining this morning when I picked them. These were all in a patch by themselves, in an area of grass that I haven't found any other species before. (or ANY mushrooms, for that matter)

I'm at work right now, but I have a couple of the larger caps dropping spores at home. Should be able to post some prints in a few hours! The gills were almost perfectly white, though these mushrooms are all VERY fresh and haven't been exposed to direct sunlight yet so there's no weathering/damage done to them at all.

White sporeprints! Some kind of amanita?

I'm really interested in finding out what species this new find is! I just went out and collected some new specimens, and noticed that there are a TONN more popping up. Are these some kind of Amanita? Or Leucoagaricus? Spore prints that I took earlier were pure white, though they were done on white paper so I couldn't get a good pic. I set these new specimens up on some blue paper so hopefully in a few hours I will have pics of the prints up:

Caps are mostly smooth, though the older ones are slightly bumpy. They start out very convex with a SLIGHT nipple at the top, but end up flat or slightly concave. They are mostly cream-white in color, though seem to darken slightly with age (the center of the caps are a slightly darker beige). Gills are pure white. I've tried bruising several peices of stem and cap, quite hard, but no color change is evident even after a few hours. The mushrooms have a STRONG smell to them: they smell mostly like mushrooms in general with a hint of something else I can't put my finger on. Not really irritating, but rather just a "wrong" smell.




The younger ones have a fairly thick veil around the top of the stem. It's still there on the older ones, but is usually torn and falling off. I can't seem to find any vulva or egg-like formation around the bottom of the growing mushrooms. The stems themselves are like a bulb on the bottom and seem to be growing straight out of the ground/grass. I broke a stem apart: the center is mostly hollow with a spiderweb-like material in it.

especially with the white spore print i'd say its the destroying angel amanita--quite deadly

The more I look at it, the more they look like the leucoagaricus leucothites shown here:
http://www.mykoweb.com/CAF/species/Leucoagaricus_leucothites.html

The lack of any sacs around the base of the stem throws me off...don't most amanitas have a sac?

Those look like Leucoagaricus naucina, a very common lawn mushroom. Although listed as edible in some books they are not recommended, as they often cause stomach upsets. Also, as others have noted above, they are a bit too close in appearance to several species of deadly Amanita.

Happy mushrooming!

I think you've got this one nailed, ToxicMan! I'd say these look like L. naucina!

Thanks for the help, eh guys :smile:
