Various Shrooms (Pics) - Identification Help
    #372733 - 08/16/01 01:33 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I'm a new shroomer, and I'm having a very hard time trying to identify some mushrooms from the Middle Tennessee area. Here are a couple of pictures. Sorry about the quality, I can send different pics if it'd help anyone.



Thought these looked interesting. These are very large and found in a cow field in low grass. They grew in small patches.



The long, skinny ones are dark and dry and hard to identify distiguishing characteristics. The large one was found alone in a country yard and turned black underneith within a couple of hours. The one on the top is completely foreign to me. It's "stump" like and is white and puffy on the inside... have any idea what this is?!?

Any help on identifying any of these would be great.

Yes we have the same kind down here on the Mississippi coast that grow in cow fields as well. Did you do a spore print? Are the gills solid white or brown with white edges? Also, do the caps and/or stem bruise any colors? Lastly, are are the rings on the stem white? Do they move easily?

We cannot change the past, that is forever gone , but the future is in our hands.

The top picture is a type of Lepiota, possibly Lepiota procera (parasol mushroom) which is a good edible and common in pastures. But it might be Chlorophyllum molybdites (green gilled parasol), which looks very similar, has gills that age greenish after starting out white and is the most common cause of mushroom poisoning in the Southern states if not in the United States.

The dark ones are hard to tell. The stumplike one is a puffball, possibly Vascellum pratense (field puffball)

Are any of these psychoactive? You say they are edible, but more for kitchen or for other uses? I thought the puffy one may be a puffball. What an odd little fungus.

Edible means you can use it the way you use champignons...
hallucinogenic is what you are looking for

NOT psychoactive. The large Lepiotas (procera) are safe & tasty food if they have white spores, nasty (but not not deadly) poison if the spores are dull greenish (Chlorophyllum molybdites). Stomach hurt, puke & liquid shit for up to 3 days--no fun.

Puffballs good food, long as pure white all the way through. Slice & fry w/ butter & garlic, or chop in omelet, or dry & powder for seasoning. Strong funky mushroom taste--like grocery store shrooms but more concentrated--texture like marshmallows when fresh.
