When: 2015-06-02

Collection location: La Vergne, Tennessee, USA [Click for map]

Who: Brian Adamo (adamo588)

No specimen available

Found these growing on a pile of dog poo on my lawn. I know that some mushrooms grow on dung, but never heard of any that grow on dog feces. After picking them off with tweezers, I was able to get a cream-colored spore deposit. Spores are round, 10µ diameter. Any ideas?
