Hello everyone!! I just joined and I need some help because this stuff is very confusing for me. I have found many different kinds of mushrooms lately, but there is this one kind that I keep finding everywhere and I have no clue as to what it is. So if anyone wants to help me ID them here is the info:
* Habitat: Cow pastures in southern Texas, out of cow patties * Characteristics of the gills: grayish/black color,not attached * Characteristics of the stem: largest 3-5 inches, about 1 1/2cm in diameter, white, smooth, solid, thin * Characteristics of the cap: 1-3in diameter,white or silvery, smooth, convex * Spore print color: black * Color that the mushroom bruises: this is the part I don't get because all of the pics Ive seen of blue bruising don't really look blue. The bruising is dark though. I'll send a picture if necessary. * Scent of the mushroom: no scent when fresh but kinda fishy if old and starting to turn
shrum is right- Antillarum-- But Not all of them are- In my opinion, u have 2 different species there. While i think most of them are without a doubt antillarum... That one on the lower left hand corner I believe to be something different... its gill structure doesnt match up with Ant, and the cap looks to be far too wavey- Like some of the copes Ive found.
