Small find, need ID help
    #914561 - 09/28/02 11:57 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I found these growing in my landscaping after some good rainfall. To me, they resemble cyanescens. They are growing from mulch also. Im located in pittsburgh PA

http://www.shroomery.com/gallery.php?section=view&display=images/gallery/other/cyanescens3.jpg

this is a picture that greatly resembles what i found... Below are actually MY picutres-

This pic shows the size of the largest mushroom next to a quarter

a gil pic

another gill shot...

Here is a pic of the cap. The center is darker and slowly fades to a more orange/brownish color

here is a pic of the stem sliced in half. You can also see wear the base of the stem (next to my finger) is bruised brown

I wil have a spore print on here soon as well.
there is no distintive oder besides the mushroom smell.

There are a few possibilities, and mushrooms that look like those are tough to ID.

Given the crowded white gills my first thought is Collybia. If so, then the gills should be adnate to free. The spore print would be white to cream or yellowish.

Another possibility is Melanoleuca. If so, then the gills should be sinuate. The spore print would be white to cream.

Cut one in half and let us know about the gill attachment. If you can put it on a scanner that would be great, because of the incredible resolution they have.

Anyway, let us know. Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!

Was there any bluing ? And I don't think Cyanescens grow east of the rockies in America.
