I found this small cluster growing in my lawn, but I've never seen mushrooms like this growing on anything but wood:

Habitat: my lawn
Stem: about 1" long, brown, soft but tough
Cap: about 1"x1.5", tan with red-brown edge. top is soft and leathery, like swede
Gills: it has white pores covering the bottom of the cap
Scent: I'm not sure how to describe it other than a VERY pungent 'mushroom' smell. it's not a pleasant smell.

I've never taken a spore print from a mushroom with pores on it, in fact I'm not even sure if I can take a print from this kind of mushroom...can I? I have it sitting on a sheet of paper under a jar right now, will that work?

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

i think it is usually hard to get a spore print from Polypores.

also, Polypores grow mostly on wood, or in your case possibly roots of a tree or buried wood..
