growing from compost??
    #4457012 - 07/26/05 09:13 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone familiar with small, fragile mushrooms that fruit in compost piles? The stalk is hollow, 2"-6" tall, white. Conical cap, light grey-ish/blue, 3/4" long. Gills unattached, also greyish/blue. No odor. Unstaining. Spore print available by morning.......

are you sure they stain greyish-blue?

a spore print color and photograph would do wonders.

See if the caps melt within a day or two. My guess would be Coprinus species, juding by habitat and description of caps.

I'm with you Gumby. When looking at the spore print this morning, there was nothing but an inky mess upon the table. The light went off in me head.
Think I agree with the Coprinus species. Possibly the Alcohol Inky (all characteristics fit, except for color). Need to investigate further. Will look for other caps when composting later.
Thanks for the help all.

Yes, most definitely the Alcohol Inky cap. The blue-ish, grey comes just before the inking of spores....
peace!
