Observation 138541: Panaeolus papilionaceus (Bull.) Quél.
When: 2013-07-04
Who: miggy128
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing gregariously in clusters about 3 feet from a creek. The medium they grow in is a mixture of old pine chips and what looks to be horse feces and plant matter.

Multiple flushes this month after each heavy rain storm.

They measure anywhere from 3 inches to 5 inches in heigh and the caps are about 20mm in diameter.

Stems range from light tan to brown and become black with spores after 5 days of growth.

VERY HEAVY spore deposit. Takes about 30 minutes to get a really dark black print.

The cap shows no structure after being sun bleached but looks radially fibrose when wet.

I noticed you are a project member, miggy. Did you send any samples of this observation to winters?
