Collection location: Hickory Hill Park, Iowa City, Iowa, USA [Click for map]

Who: BAM18

No specimen available

These mushrooms were growing on a dead tree branch in the woods. They are white and they smell. It seems that they don’t have a stem? As for texture… it LOOKS as if it is furry and it feels soft but its not soft.

I live in the united states. In Iowa. These are not gymnopilus sp OR Panaeolus cinctulus AND thats the only two types of shrooms that grow in iowa according to shroomery.org

That list on the Shroomery refers to psychoactive species in Iowa. There are many, many types of mushrooms in Iowa.

Here’s a link of mushrooms from Iowa :)
