Weird paper thin mushrooms
    #832506 - 08/21/02 10:35 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Okay, I posted about this long ago and no one ever responed, so I thought I'd give it another to. I'll describe it part by part.

Cap: REALLY thin, frail, almost like flower petals. Its perfectly round. The cap is dark blue to purple and .25 in. to 1.5 in. in diameter. Hmmm...this maybe hard to describe, but the cap is shaped like a perfect zig zag all the way around, starting from the center, and getting wider as it goes towards the edge. Ever seen an Oriental fan? Thats what it looks like, except it goes all the way around in a circle.
Stem: Hollow, whitish, yellowish, I'd say about 2 mm diameter.
Spore print: Black.
Habitat: I find these literally EVERYwhere in my yard in the morning after a good rain.

These are the coolest looking shrooms I've ever seen, they look almost hand-made. I know they aren't active, I just wanna know what they are! Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks in advance

Sounds like it could be some type of Mycena.

i know what you are talking about, i am not sure what they are called but they are a very interesting looking mushroom. I think they are just a common lawn mushroom. I know what you mean by the zig zag pattern. ^^^^^^^^^^ It is a very cool little mushroom

I know! Actually those things were how I discovered the Shroomery. I found some 2 years ago and I looked and looked for an ID and eventually wound up here. I'd heard of shrooms that get ya high, but I had no idea what they were capable of. Then its been like an off and on obsession from then on...and I STILL don't have a positive ID on those lawn shrooms! At least I'm a step closer now (thanks Gumby)!
I might try to grow some just for fun. They're prolly effortless almost, and apparently since I have some kind of anti-fungal touch it'll help my skills. Yes, I've fucked up the PF Tek not once, but TWICE! Which is why I have 4 mycobags on my way!

i know this isnt the exact one but this is the closest picture i could find. I already forgot its name it is mycena something but this ones habitat is in the forest. I couldnt find a mycena thats habitat was just lawns but i just looked in my small library of books for a few minutes.

Those are REALLY close! Except the caps are flatter, and the Zig Zag pattern is more pronounced, and the color is a lot darker. But those are the closest looking pictures I've seen! If I ever get my camera workin, next time it rains I'll have to take a few shots of em.

Thank you mister shrooms! Yeah, I was wondering why I never saw in the afternoon, only in the mornings. Well. The mystery is solved. Thanks again!
