I changed the vote to the top one on mine too. I was going with general consensus – dangerous I know – but no one had anything to say about mine so…

I wonder:

Ben, TY, and this question:

Now, you were able to give the top vote to mine, but why not yours?

TY, but no need to send when I do have my own collection (assuming what I have is this) Also, seems we have the right name for it.

I Ate It

Hey Sam -

When I was finding these (9/28 – 10/10), I found a ton of them in the local neighborhood lawns. They didn’t really seem to associate to with any trees. Some grew solo, some in loosely clustered troops. Some grew up near the sidewalk, others in the middle of lawns surrounded by lilacs, others spruce.

I ate it. Browned right up in the pan. Wasn’t my favorite mushroom but didn’t cause any GI issues. If I see anymore I can dry it for you if you’d like. I think my hesitation with the name is with the literature. I learned it as Lepiota naucina, and from there trying to pinpoint a name on line wasn’t easy. Wasn’t sure what the most current name was…

You as well?!? :)

Hi Ben:

Wow, so you found one, too. I just communicated w/someone w/vast experience in the NE who’s only found it a couple times. Now, you were able to give the top vote to mine, but why not yours? Also, can you tell us more about it, such as was it near a tree, solo or w/others, in a ring or other config., and anything else? Do you still have it? What did you do w/it? It should darken upon cooking. I’ll try that w/mine.
