Need a Mushroom ID
    #4550222 - 08/18/05 04:10 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Ok, I am not sure about these mushrooms and have yet to ID them, but I am guessing that these are probably poisenious... Cause everything in my state is garbage :P.




Habitat
Found in a Pasture near cow dung
Found in Northern Wyoming
Altitude of 1 mile
Was Growing on Dung and Soil.

Characteristics of the gills
Pictures are worth a thousand words..



Characteristics of the stem
Average Length of 1-1.5 inches long
Average Diameter of 1/10-1/5 inch
Stem snaps easy
The Stem is solid
*see pictures above for a small gander*

Characteristics of the cap
Average Diameter of Large Caps 1.5-2 inches
Average of Smaller Caps .5 Inche
*here is a picture of a larger cap*


Spore print color
*here is a picture of a leaf I found under a shroom that had a print*


Color that the mushroom bruises
Doesn't seem to bruise any color

Scent of the mushroom
A small scent that seems almost a dusty fragrence

That's all I know for now
if anyone can tell me anything about these beauties I would be grateful!!

Thanks in Advance!

Looks like Marasmius oreades, the fairy ring champignon.

To verify M. oreades, try bending the stem. The stem of M. oreades is very flexible and tough and should not break.

Happy mushrooming!

Are M. oreades active? I know they are pretty good tasting considering mushrooms.

If they are active anyone know how much a dose is :wink:

M. oreades is an edible mushroom. Make sure that you really have that species if you decide to try some though.
