The sporeprint is a light brown. You could say its a light rusty brown color.

Hey i forgot to add this sorry. I live in Missouri, and those mushrooms were growing in some ankle high grass. We put some hay on there to grow some grass so that might be what its growin on.

First 3 images = Conocybe? Mycena? Non-Active/Poisonous.
Second post= Coprinus of some sort (inky cap). Looks like the cap had spread out quite a bit, for such a small specimen.

BTW, I'm going to MO, to my cousins wedding in St. Roberts, this August. I'm bringing an air-conditioned tuxedo.

First one looks like Conocybe Lactea. I've seen them in almost every field or lawn I've looked in. Don't know what the other one is. Kinda neat looking though....

Looks like the first mushroom I ever found. Brings back memories.

The first one is the extremely common lawn mushroom Conocybe lactea , although we'd need a microscope to be completely certain. The other looks to be one of many similar Coprinus (Inky Cap) species.

Happy mushrooming!

That's a bolete. The nibbles out of the top are typical of what squirrels do. To ID a bolete we need a few things. Look closely at the surface of the stem - is there a pattern of tiny net-like ridges (look near the top)? If there are, do they extend more or less than halfway down the stem? Scratch the surface of the tube layer with your fingertip. Does it change color (not just get darker)? If so, how long does it take? What kind of trees was it growing under?

MD is an excellent book. It's the book I see used most often by professional mycologists. It's difficult to use at first, but make the effort to try and identify your finds in there. Even when you can't identify them you've learned more and the knowledge adds up.

Happy mushrooming!
