Hunting and identifying
    #4267687 - 06/07/05 02:26 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hi im new, anyway, ive been reading here for a while and i just joined. I need help identifying a mushroom but i dont have a picture. I live in Pennsylvania. We just got fresh mulch and it rained and has been really hot. On the side of the house there were mushrooms popping up the caps skin is reallys soft and smooth, it looks like those of a psyclobe cyanceans (same color and wavy). (sp). But i looked and they dont grow in pa. So, I thought it was a panaleaus subbalteaus because the underside of the cap looked very close to the picture shon of them. but on the one i have the gills are wavy. I cut the stalk and it is hollow. Then i tried to bruise it and it wouldnt bruise. theres little clusters of them with like 5-9 close to eachother. I tried to bruise it but it didnt turn a color. I took a spore print and it wasnt a balck but it was like a dark brown, or light blac dark purple with a brown hint to it. I know this is hard to identify without a picture but any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if i were to eat it, do i eat it dry or wet? Also to dry it can i put it in a paper bag with rice and let it sit so the rice absorbs all the moisture, I know i did that with something i had to dry before and it worked. Thanks a lot in advance.

Might be an Agrocybe species or something. Pictures can be misleading in identification. You must compile a list of features (see guidlines) and use that to compare to find the genus that best fits your findings.

theres alot of agrocybe praecox growing right about now on woodchips. do a search for agrocybe praecox in google and tell me if those match your mushroom.

No, it doesnt look a thing like that. http://www.shroomery.org/images/23488/64836-Pan_Subb_Thumbnail_gills.jpgthe underside looks exactly like this but with the gills wavy, and the top like a psyclobe cyancens
