is a west African species. I doubt it occurs in Florida. To assert that it does will require more evidence than we have here. Interesting find. Marasmius would be my best guess.

saw it in a few yards during my trips

not far of my rented house, however i don’t go in florida this summer so i won’t be able to gather it again.

and since i was not there for mushroom picking didn’t have time to recheck them.

need more data!

spore color would be a great start.

what say the Florideans on this list…have you seen something similar in other Florida lawns? Could be a tropical transplant…too delicate looking for Rugosomyces. It does have that viscid look like a Bolbitius, but those gills are so white.

I dunno. But if it’s common in lawns in August, should be possible to gather more in future for a good or at least way mo bettah ID.

I was in a road trip, unfortunatly no.

however I recall where I found it, but unfortunately i don’t think, many live near orlando.

but thank for the try! this one is much tougher to ID than I would of expected.

also not very obvious from the thumbnail but you can see a black reticulum on the top of the cap in the first picture. but not sure if this is related to anything however.

Collection avaiable?

Microscopy could help, I don’t think it looks like Bolbitiaceae, more like something white spored.

looked on the internet

the closest conocybe I saw was C aureus but it it much more brownish than mine, mine was vibrant orange, almost as an hygrocybe!

Looks like this is a white spored mushroom.

But if not, then one thing to consider may be Conocybe. Here’s an obs that looks somewhat like yours… except for the whitish gills on your specimen, Jonathan.

But gill color on some conocybes can start out very light.

I really want an ID to this one , it is bothering me!
