is this a liberty cap?
    #4622070 - 09/05/05 12:22 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)



found it in a field with cowshit, smells good, the hat is strong, feels like rubber. The "gills" go very tight to the stem, as you can see they are brownish in color. However people tells me the hat is supposed to be more pointy? But i dont know, ill let you experts look at it :laugh:

doesn't look like a lib cap to me, more info is needed if you want to narrow it down to a genus.

II. Accurate mushroom descriptions

It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable, but not required.
Along with the pictures YOU ARE REQUIRED to provide the following data:

* Habitat (where [woods, pasture, state,province,country, altitude] and what [soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?)] does it grow on)
* Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
* Characteristics of the stem (length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
* Characteristics of the cap (diameter,color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
* Spore print color (very important!)
* Color that the mushroom bruises
* Scent of the mushroom

I found it on a field of cows, i live in the south coast of norway.
the gills are light brown, and are attached to the stem. The stem varies in length, but the ones i found were between 3-5 cm long. Light brown color, some were lighter or darker, towards the bottom of it. The caps are yellowish/light brown as you can see. It doesnt smell anything particular.. Smells like any mushroom ive found

They are very similar, almost like a liberty cap.

Im just back from a wee hunt, went away for 45 minutes andd came back with some nice but small ones, not mushy and slimey thankfully (which they can be) because its been so sunny the last 2 days, so they were already predried! well almost...

anyway, theres are liberty caps... (picked last sunday)



they can be roughly the colour you got, but a bit lighter, not as "dark muddy" a bit lighter muddy, and if theyre fresh and wet (came up very short time ago) they are very very dark brown completely

hope you manage to find some soon.
