Panaeolus subbalteatus (i don't want to poison..)
    #656264 - 05/31/02 06:29 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Hi, I live in the south Puget Sound and went mushroom hunting for the first time in my life today. I found some mushrooms next to a large compost pile that I'm almost certain are Panaeolus subbalteatus. They look almost exactly like the ones at this url: http://www.shroomery.org/images/gallery/other/panae5.jpg except most of them are smaller. The stems seem a bit thinner too, but I'm not sure if that is important.

I am wondering whether there are any other mushrooms that resemble the Pannaeolus subbalteatus that are poisonous.

I will try and get my scanner working and scan them so that I can be sure, because I would not like to get sick from eating the wrong kind...

Take a spore print, if it turns out jet black, then they are some sort of Panaeolus mushroom. If its anything other than just stright jet black, then the are not Panaeolus... and probaly nothing of importance.

Peace out,

Panaeolus Foenisecii (non active) is a look a like and the diference is they are smaller and skinnier than Pan. subbs., anyway a picture would realy help.

Peace,

Did they grow cepitosely or in clusters? This is one very good distinction between the foensecii. If you have a collection of different age subs you can look at the manner in which the cap dries, this controls the belt like appearance and the evaporation of the belt and the color change and wrinkling. This is a good thing to observe in identification of any mushoom if the mushroom makes it possible.
