A question, I have...

Ok so here's the deal, sometime earlier this year I had taken some lightly contaminated cakes (P. cubensis) outside and dumped them into certain areas around manure and straw. Months go by, and then a couple of weeks ago I found the remnants of some mushrooms right next to one of the dumping locations. They are preserved, dried by the September sun, and basically unidentifiable to me. The stems are white, the caps turned brown... but something caught my eye. Looking closely, one can see millions of purplish-brown spores covering some of the latter-arriving caps. And I emphesize purple. What other genus and species of Mushrooms have dark purplish-brown spores? Maybe Coprinus, but the mushrooms were preserved like bone-dry crackers, not the typical spore sludge of Coprinus. To narrow it down, I live in Northern California, about an hour from the coast. The mushrooms appear to be growing right out of the ground, a mixture of straw and debris from the spring and summer, next to a dead stump. Luckily, it recently rained just a little, and perhaps if I were to water the area it may fruit again. I'll take a sporeprint and picture then.

Purplish spores occur in Psilocybe, Stropharia, Hypholoma, and Psathyrella. Those are the ones I can remember off the top of my head - there may be others.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
