Help with identification
    #841991 - 08/25/02 10:58 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)


I live in South Wales and have been reading up on liberty caps for a week or two. I?ve been out looking for them a few times but come back empty-handed, until today, when I found a single mushroom growing out of some cow dung on a small path at the side of a field. From the descriptions I have read and the pictures I have seen at this and other sites, it looks a lot like a liberty cap to me. I have just set up a spore print, I?ll post a pic of that when it?s ready.

In the meantime though, what do people here make of these pictures? The stem was about twice as long as it appears in the photos (part of it broke off while I was carrying it back home). Also, what is the best way to actually pick mushrooms? How much of the stem am I looking to get?

This is sort of a "practice run" at identifying shrooms, particularly as I only found one. I?m hoping though that if it is a liberty cap then it means I?ll have a chance of finding some more in a few weeks or so.

Thanks for your help, here are the pictures:

I can tell you that its not a lib cap. I'm not sure what it is, but its not a lib, the gills make me thing panaeolus, but the cap suggests otherwise...
