Identification help needed.
    #4461158 - 07/27/05 08:19 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Being new to the site first off I want to apoligize if my discriptions are not up to par. The other thing is that I do not have a digital camera, and I know that might be a problem. I also wanted to add that have 2 mushroom hunting books from the library, but am having a little trouble fiding any information.

The mushroom in question was found in a dung fertilized garden in north western ohio. The stem is yellowish white and very fragile. The stem also appears to be hollow. The gills are very visable and are a dark to chocolate brown. The cap has what looks like a indentation where the stem meets the cap. The cap itself is conic, almost bell shaped. The top of the cap in color is a yellowish brown. The spore print is a chocolate brown.

I'm sorry about the lack of picture, any other information that might be helpful please let me know. In the meantime I'll try and find a digital camera. Thank you.

Some size measurements would be really helpful. How big are they?

Happy mushrooming!

I picked 3 of the same, the largest one the stem is 11.5 centimeters. The cap is 2.5 to 3 centimeters large across. The smallest one is 6.5 centimeters for the stem, and about 1 centimeter across. the stem width on all three are under .5 centimeters. Keep on mind these are conical caps.

The overall description suggests Psathyrella. There are a few species in that genus that grow from dung.

Happy mushrooming!
