small find.. need some id help
    #898977 - 09/22/02 11:35 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Im located in pittsburgh Pa. Found these guys growing on wood mulch after a few good days of rainfall.

here is a pic of them from yesterday

heres the cap. notice the peculiar white "crystally" ring around the bottom edge of the cap. also, the pinkish tint that they were yesterday as faded and is more pale today.

here you can se the rough texture of the base/stem. the base is also larger than the mushroom cap.

i tried to get a closer picture of the cap, kinda blurry though.

heres the four larger caps today. the stem seems to get narrower as it approaches the cap.

kinda shaped like bowling pins. At the base the color is more brown and fades to a tannish white stem.

here you can see how they look today. the caps have changed to more of a white color than pink. also, its got a "fuzzy" texture to it. kind of looks like theres a frost covering the mushrooms

once the veils start to break, ill pick them and get some gill pics and some spore prints, cap sizes, etc...

Excellent post. It's very nice to see a set of photos documenting the development of some mushrooms in the wild, especially large ones like these.

Your mushrooms look like Lepiota rachodes, which is a good edible. Make sure you verify the spore print when they mature, which should be white, not green. You'll also want to verify that the tissue inside the cap doesn't bruise immediately brown when cut.

Happy mushrooming!
