Local find - Any ideas?
    #4720941 - 09/27/05 06:16 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hello,

                            After pretty much giving up on my uptake of identifying species, I was walking into my house and noticed a huge patch of these tiny mushroom. They were all very small, and clustered under a patch of prickly bushes (not sure what kind). I do know that under the bushes, there is not much light and the soil is almost always moist. The cap has been sitting underneath a can (on top of paper) for about 2 hours. The only thing I got out of this attempt of a print, was a dried mushroom. I tried to rough up the stem, and it formed a dark brown color.
Cap: tanish white/brown
Gills: Tanish white/brown also
Stem:: fibrous white, somewhat hollow. Very limber
Smell: at the Moment, musky/slightly fishy (not very much though)

Cap

Somewhat dry

Gills


Sorry, I know..My camera sucks (it's broken) :frown: :frown:

Thanks guys
This was for in RI
If these pictures arent good enough for you guys, Ill try to get them in their natural habitat, when they arent as dry!

No I.D on dried up mushrooms..

"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."

Looks like and sounds like a Marasmius. Not sure though.

Stem:: fibrous white, somewhat hollow. Very limber. This part is characteristic of Marasmius species. Also the picture of the base with
the mushroom holding onto stuff is much like Marasmius.

I think falcon is correct. Try moistening the mushroom with a little water. Marasmius will rehydrate and be like a fresh mushroom (they will actually still be alive!), unlike most other mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!
