Ok, i found some mushrooms in my yard this time... not just a puffball.  There are more growin in my yard, so, depending on what it is, i'll be pickin more eventually. :wink:

So, here's the info:
Habitat: Grass, South Florida
Gills: White
Spores: Hardly any... a few dark brown specs
Texture: Entire mushroom is smooth, but very slimy
Stem: 3.5 inches, smooth, white, curly at the end
Cap: 2 inches across, smooth, white, you can see the ridges of the gills staring directly down on the mushroom, almsot dome shaped
Smell: Bitter, undescribable
Bruising color: doesnt seem to noticably bruise, perhaps it blues a bit darker white?
Spore print:  Havent gotten to that yet, tell me if you need it to identify

here are some pics (the black stuff is just dirt and such):






Since it's been rainin hard daily, ive seen a ton of other kinds of mushrooms too outside of my work place (some are enormous).  Maybe, when there isnt anyone around, i'll pick some...

btw... thx for the help.  It's much appreciated.

The appearance and description suggest Mycena or Marasmius (or one of the close genera to them). Try leaving it on white paper overnight to get a good heavy spore print.

Happy mushrooming!

have a stumped everyone? I still have these mushrooms in my room, should i throw them away or are they good?

what i have inferred from reading about the Mycena and Marasimus genera is that they arent any good, but is anyone really sure that's what they are .... oh well.

Did you make the print overnight so it would be a good, heavy deposit of spores? Given a brownish spore print I'll guess that it's actually somewhat pinkish and that you have an Entoloma species. The spore color can be pretty brownish on the Entolomas. Unfortunately, IDing Entolomas to species is pretty close to impossible for most of them. Lots of them are very poisonous, so they should not be eaten.

Happy mushrooming!

It sure don't look active to me (if that's what you were hoping for it to be anyways) :frown:

"I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale, and never tried it again." Bill Clinton

"A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly fifteen hundred pounds of marijuana within about 15 minutes to induce a lethal response... In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many of the foods we commonly consume. For example, eating ten raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death."
