I'm new to this kind of shroom so I thought I'd a few simple questions. Do they grow in yards as do stuntzii? What is the best time of year to find them?I came across a whole bunch of shrooms which look like all the picturesI've seen but I know not for sure. Is this time of year in Oregon a time when they will be out? I will go and find an identification book so I can read up on these things. Thanks.
The only ones I have seen have been growing in pasture land and never directly on cowshit...they love it around the cow feeders. They were very impotent as well. Could be different if you found some there I hear it depends on the field sometimes. I just came back from the field a few minutes ago and found a few of them. This is in Tennessee though..I don't know about your area. I believe it's probably a bit warm for them here now. The rain we've been having every day lately has brought some back out however. :)>

Very rarely occur in manure-fertilized lawns, but I've found them in that habitat twice in the past 15 years so can't say "never." YES they can grow into early July in W. Oregon if there's been enough rain. There hasn't been enough rain in my area, but out toward the coast conditions have apparently been better.
But what you probably found is the very common Panaeolina foensecii, which looks similar to Pan. subb but is generally smaller and has purplish-brown (as opposed to black) spores and is inactive.
