Hi everyone. I just joined today after reading this board over the last week. I have found all of you to be quite knowledgeable, and I've been learning quite a lot here. I've been out hunting for days and haven't come up with anything yet. I've tried some of the suggested areas but nothing yet. I have however, seen countless species of beautiful mushrooms, so despite not finding what I set out for I'm quite happy with my new hobby. :) I found a particular variety that I'm rather curious about. At first I thought they looked pretty close to some pictures and descriptions that I've seen but the don't blue (at least not yet,) and the spore print isn't purple/brown. So my question is, what are they? I want to know more about active and non-active ones. Here is a couple of pics:

Yes I pulled this cluster from the ground, (I cut the rest don't worry :) ) I wanted to illustrate how they were growing. Any ideas?

I also found these which have proper spore prints (they don't seem to blue much if any, but maybe one of you could tell me.

Incidentally, I live in the greater Redmond area (WA) so if anyone wants to go out any time soon from the area, let me know, I'd love to go with someone experienced. Oh, I saw some Aminitas in Seattle the other day, quite beautiful, but I didn't have the heart to take them. Very cool mushrooms.

Nice pictures! I have no idea what the top ones are, but I am almost positive the bottom two pictures are some kind of Panneolus..maybe active, not sure as I don't live in your area.

And that is all the news that's fit to print

yeah I'm not sure about them either but those bottom ones look mighty familiar....well I live in kirkland and I''m trying to find some people to go hunting with, redmond is pretty damn close! So I am down for that, we should check out all these cities around here for stuntzii and cyans...I've been hitting up my cyan spot here in kirkland, but need to find some more spots before it's too late....Mj showed me lots of spots in seattle, but they all seemed to be picked over, probably because he's so nic e about showing people his spots, so I don't even think I want to take from those ones but I'm sure we can find some more for ourselves...aanyways I"m heading to seattle tomorrow I think but we should go today around here if you want..well PM me or something with your phone number if you want to go today cuz even if I don't hear from you I'll be heading out here in an hour or so...

everything everyone everywhere. forever and ever and ever.

I found a lot more today, I'll get some pics up very soon. (sometime tonight.) I found some with bright violet purple gills and brownish purple caps, and some brown capped light brown gilled white stemmed ones as well. I left a good chunk of them there, so if they are any good, I would be happy to show someone the spot if we go hunting. I'm going to go start some spore prints etc.

Hrm... I'm thinking the second ones are not Panaeolus, because of the temps lately... too cold. They resemble Psathyrellas, none of which are active to my knowledge =\

Keep searching.

Peace out,
