Nifty, they're possibly albino mutants, also possibly sterile. Take a spore print and save it anyways.

I've found some like that, there was a post somewhere on here a while ago. The person who found them took a print and it was a rust brown, which they were told wasnt good.
The ones I found were like that and were VERY slimy and oily.  :tongue: I dont think they are active and could be dangerous.

Yes, i also though of that but the stem seems to be bruising... could be my eyes though.

I don't see any bruising, not that there always is on lib caps. They seem to fit the description of Mycena leptocephala which also grows in grass.

Yeah, I was gonna mention that if they were lib caps they're probably sterile, judging by the fact that the gills are light. I don't know whether mycenas drop many spores, but I doubt that they do so it might be hard to solve this one.

I'll go look for a sample pic of the mycena I think it is to show you - have looked, only ones that showed up looked more like normal liberty caps, dam misidentifications.

I no longer think they are Mycena leptocephala, and probably not mycena at all, after studying more pictures, seems like they're lib caps.

Did you get many lib caps today? I got a few hundred, but there wern't as many as on wednesday, the weekend should be better.

I find sporeless liberty caps on occasion. It isn't that uncommon and is even mentioned in Stamets' book quoted below.

In reply to:

Perhaps the most unusual form I have found is one that looks dangerously close to a Galerina but is in fact a denuded, nearly sporeless, orange form of P. semilanceata. With sparse spore production, the color of the overlying transluscent flesh shows a yellowish orange color instead of its normal purplish brown.

There was the potential to collect 100s /1000s of course I only took a few for research purposes.

wow, thats a trip...

The shape of the cap and margin do not look exactly the same, but that just could be me.

Are they brusing? Is the gill structure the same?

Looks the same to me....

The white ones are drier than the others because of different storage.

good score (for research, i men...) but you should toss those soggy ones.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
