Hey all I have been located these in a cow field by my house and I always wondered what they were. I live in Texas, but they are not cubes but I thought they may be pan/subs? It has been raining a lot lately, and these always pop up on the dung. They like shade. Caps can be 1-4 inches. Grow anywhere from 1 to 5 inches tall. Sorry the pictures, not that great but they do show some good detail. As for the spores, I am pretty sure they are black. Print was not possible because they got pretty hot in the car and mushed up a bit, and were all covered in a blackish water. Bruised black, also I used a dehydrator to dry them out. Are dehydrators viable drying methods? What the flip are they? Thanks for the help.
Hello paloop0024, welcome to the shroomery. Those could be the most potent mushrooms of all, copelandia. I don't see any bluing going on, which makes me think they will be Panaeolus campanulatus. But, for a positive ID, we need a more acurate description. Follow the format in the **PLEASE READ*** sticky, be as acurate as possible. They will drop black spores for sure, but that doesn't mean they're Copes. Do they get black and mushy in the field during the day? (indicates inky caps)
