Collection location: Rockingham Co, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: pete (petepann)

No specimen available

And there I was. All excited thinking I had found some rare Panaeolus species. I was happy with the THOUGHT that I had found something other than Pan. Paps, anyway. Well needless to say, the wind was taken right out of my sails to find out that paps now has a white version. I surely missed the hell out of THAT memo. i almost decided against posting the thing, yet here we are.
Cap 2" margin to margin using string method. Margin NOT appendiculate.
Gills black with white edges. Stem 6" in length. Rather sturdy for its length and diameter. White in color. There is some delayed discoloration at the “trauma” site. I am not sure if it would be considered bruising more so than “staining”.
Spore print black black. That mess is getting everywhere. Oh yeah. It was growing in horse $#@%.

That matches to a T. You are the man. Thank you. That makes the day a bit brighter. I actually got mad when I read the post between Byrain, Rockefeller, Bloodworm and the poster. I’m not going to try and explain. Go have a look. Observation: Panaeolus papilionaceus (Bull.) Quél. (138826) And once again, THANK YOU!! Its always a good day when I can add a new species find to the “Gallery”.
