These mushrooms have short, white stems that bruise a mild blue-green. They were growing very close to the ground in horse dung in middlish Georgia.

The caps are rubbery and tough, and dry as though they've been sitting out for a while. They exhibit mild blue-green bruising on the centers of the caps and on the edges, though not nearly as distinctly as on the stems.

The gills a tan/light brown color. The scent is very typically mushroomy.

Here are some pictures:










Thanks for your help in identifying these mushrooms.

I am pretty sure that you have the same Lactarius species that I was finding but the habitat you mentioned does not fit. Were all of them growing directly from horse dung?
The spore print should come out a cream color, I will try to find a pic of some of the ones that i found.
Even though they bruise blue-green, they are not active.

By *directly* do you mean that the stems actually come out of chunks of dung? In that case, they did not grow directly from the dung.

Rather, they grew amidst two separate piles of dung. The ground is covered with pine needles. However, none grew outside of the piles. Is that making sense?

I tried a spore print, and I usually do it well, but for some reason it simply is not working. Perhaps they are too old/dry?

*EDIT* - These are very similar to Lactarius Chelidonium, pictured and described here:

L. Chelidonium


Thanks again for the quick reply - directing me to Lactarius helped in making the tentative ID. I think that maybe the dung was a coincidence - the pine straw was important.

Makes sense. The ones that I found were growing close to pine trees among the mass of pine needles laying on the ground.
The color varies in them from the light brownish to grayish with blue stains all over. My books say that the milk latex is what causes the blue coloration. There more than one species with this bluing latex.


This pic is not that great. Mine are old near rotting specimens and the pic was not taken at the location of the find. Some blue is visible in the photo.

As eris said, those are some species of Lactarius. They are not active. The color of the milk it pruduces is required to ID to species.
