Oklahoma ID - Hi Res pics - In Grass
    #3325122 - 11/05/04 05:46 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I found these in a grassy field which was still kind of soggy from rain the previous few days. They were mostly in small patches, but a few were off a little bit by themselves. I have a pretty good feeling that they are nothing special, but no harm in having the 'professionals' check it out, eh?

There appears to be 3 different species. Here are 2 pics of all of them together:


I had them divided into 2 groups, but one of them appears to be different from all the others, so I decided afterwards it was probably a third species. Note: none of them appear to have really 'bruised' at all, at least as far as I can tell.

==Species 1=====
note: the 'species 3' one is lumped in with some of the pics of Species 1, but hopefully you can tell which one it is.

Mostly an ugly shade of brownish-white, with light brown around the edges of the cap and on the top-center of the cap. The edges of the cap appear to be kind of frayed. Brownish-white gills. Caps ranging from approx .5 inch diameter to approx 1.5 inch diameter.

==Species 2===

These all apear to be very much alike. Approx 2 inches high, with a small cap, as seen in the pics. The stems of this one are about the same shade as the Species 1, while the caps of these are definitely more brown. Gills same color as stem. They appear to be more 'resilient' than the first species (not TOUGH, though).

==Species 3===
pics a bit blurry, sorry.

This one is entirely off-white. Cap is about the same size across as a quarter. Approx 1.5-2 inches tall.

If you have any questions about them I'll do my best to describe them further.

At first glance they all look close to Marasmius oreades, a very common lawn mushroom, just different ages. That species is considered edible.

Here are two features you should verify:

Get a spore print on white paper. It should come out a very pale tan.

Try bending the stem to see how much it bends before it breaks. M. oreades is noted for having an exceptionally flexible stem. The last specimen I was brought I was able to tie the stem in a knot without breaking it.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
