Help identifying a mushroom
    #4259954 - 06/05/05 03:13 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I found these in my backyard. I live in the mid-atlantic region of the United States. They were growing in groups of two or three in the shade of a non-pine tree. The caps are on average about an inch across and half an inch tall. The stems appear hollow. The cap is very smooth to the touch and it smells mushroomy. It has a very mild taste. The gills are free and close together. I tried to get a spore print since I saw in the rules that it was needed, but only a very slight one was produced after several hours and I couldn't get a good picture. It appeared to be a dark color. Here are several pictures. If you can't tell something from them please ask and I will try my best to help describe it better.

All the mushrooms I gathered.

A close up picture of a cap. The flash on the camera slightly obscures the top of it.

An attempted picture of the gills.

A much better picture of the cap without the flash.

The entire mushroom.

They look similar to the panaeolus subbalteatus mushrooms which is why I'm posting them. They may very well be regular old mushrooms though. Thank you very much for the help.
