Finally Rained - YEY OR NEY?
    #912889 - 09/27/02 07:01 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Hey all.. rained for the first time in.. easily weeks.  We're in quite a drought, and it's said that we'd need 3 months of consistant rains to bring the resevoir back up to level.  Anywho, was walking along the street today and saw these in the grass.  I guess they were growing off some sort of ground up mulch or something, as pieces were still attached to the stems (as you can see).

Found in Virginia, wondering if they're psychoactive or not, and either way.. curious as to what they are.

Thanks :smile:

At first glance those look like Marasmius oreades, although the gill coloration looks odd in the second photo.

Are the stems tough and flexible? Try bending them with your fingers.

What color is the spore print?

Happy mushrooming!

Stems were quite stiff and unflexible.  Didn't dry, or take spore-print, might try that tomorrow, I assume they'll still be there, or others will have popped up.  Still raining.. woohoo.

These were the first outdoor mushrooms that I've taken into my home, I'm a cubie kinda guy.. was just curious - so in short, I have no idea what a pellicle and pithy stipe are - therefore I can't answer the question... didn't dry either.  I bet the cow pies are hopping right now though, might try some hunting there in the near future.

MM rules :smile:
