WHAT IS THIS?!??!?!
    #620406 - 04/27/02 02:47 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

umm, I am not a mushroom hunter at all, but I live in TN, and I happen to be at a friends house. We were tallking about mushrooms and sort, and he showed me a jar that was not culturvating, so he asked to walk outside with him to throw it in the bushes where he throws other casing / cakes that are pretty much dead with all sorts of stuff.. What I thought was bushes, turned out to be a HUGE ass woodchip pile, and mushrooms were EVERYWHERE... but I am not sure what they are!!! If anyone can help, that would be kool... it seems he is having more luck outside then inside... hehe, here is the pics, sorry for the low quality...

Lepotia(sp?) of some sort. Some of them are dangerously poisonous, some are edible. You're safer just throwing them away. No speices of Lepotia are active.

Peace out,

Lepiota is a s good a guess as anything.
The bulbous base is usually indicative that you have something other than a Psilocybe or Panaeolous.
The thing that give me pause is that one or two of the pics show some discoloation... They not turning blue anywhere, are they?
if not, then yeah,,,, you'd best just toss them.

I can see some bruising at the stem but the colors are all wrong. mmmm... Can you tell the color wich they bruised ?
The cap doesn't look "cubish" at all though.

Peace,

nope, no blue at all. They are all the way dry, which they did not change at all from how they were in he ground. No shrinking or bruising at all. Its kinda tough when you squeeze it. I am just about clueless cause it really does not look like anything I have seen before and almost does not even look like a mushroom. They are ALOT more where that come from. They are HUGE. VERY BIG wavy caps.

I wish I would had picked one, but I was in a hurry and had to leave. (they area at a friends house.)

After some reading, i think it might be some kind of Agrocybe, not active.

Peace,

looks like an Agrocybe sp. to me.

they're common in spring on wood debris and have a brown print.
