Inactive yard mushroom ID
    #4402825 - 07/14/05 11:11 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Obviously not active, and I highly doubt edible either but I want to become more aware and knowledgeable of the inactive fungi that grow around my area.  For some reason almost every house on my street has fungi growing on it's yard at one point in time or another, but I've only seen mushrooms once on my own.  And sadly, I'm probably the only person that WISHES inactive fungi would grow on their lawn, for aesthetic purposes.  :lol:  Pic and description of the mushrooms from my neighbor's yard are below.  He had close to 40 specimens but I only picked two for an ID.

Habitat: Well manicured lawn in southeast Texas
Characteristics of the gills: Light tan in color, not attached to stem
Characteristics of the stem: White, 5", very fragile and thin
Characteristics of the cap: Approx 1" diameter, white/light tan in color, soft in texture and very fragile while handling, slightly convex cap
Spore print: none taken
Bruising color: appeared to be dark tan
Scent: a sharp bitter smell is the best way I can describe it

Thats a common Conocybe species that grow in lawns. They are all over mine, I just stomp them because they get on my nerves.

Yes, conocybe.. those look pretty beaten up. Usually they are really fragile and don't usually remain standing for more than a day, especially if exposed to direct sunlight.
