* Habitat = Found in Lawn, Scotland rabbits have been running about and was a cow field 6 years ago.
* Characteristics of the gills = not attached to stem, light brown pore print is dark purple
* Characteristics of the stem = 2-4 cm2-4 mm thick, creamy color, solid
* Characteristics of the cap 0-3cm, brown with cream line, helmet shaped when new, then when maturing the cap curls up the way.

* Spore print color = purple almost black.
* Color that the mushroom bruises = none.
* Scent of the mushroom = wet mushrooms smell.
* these tend to grow everywhere in the garden lawn, especially after a good down poor.
when dried they turn almost black.

I wouldlike to put them under the microscope but not sure what to look at, spawn, gills, stem, cap and of course what to look for.

i know i need to do some reading on this.

could you tell me if they are active, edible, anything please.

Very nice description!

I'm pretty sure that these are the inactive common lawn mushroom Panaeolina foenisecii. These look very similar to the active mushroom that sometimes on occasion may grow in lawns, Panaeolus Subbalteatus. The main difference between these two is that the Pan Subbs that grow in the grass tend to only grow in grass that has been taken care of quite well. Also, the Subbs have a stem that is slightly darker with almost a reddish tint to it, and on the stem there are lines that spiral down it. The gills usually do not hang that far below the margin, are closer together, and are also a blacker color usually with some white fringes at times. The main indicator between the two is the spore print, though. Pan Subbs have a jet black sporeprint. The picture you have there shows a great example of a brown print from a foe. The foe's print can get a darker brown, though, which may make it confuseable as black, so watch out for that.

The foes are not active (although some may debate it is), and aren't really edible either (some people seem to get slight stomach problems from eating them, but I never have).
