Observation 26583: Agrocybe Fayod
When: 2009-10-13
Who: whollychao
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These appear to be Panaeolus subbalteatus (aka: Panaeolus cinctulus). The caps are between 0.5 – 3 inches, dome-shaped and rarely circular, most are in irregular shapes. Some are umbonicate, others are flat. Some of the margins are slightly incurved, some are straight and even. The mushrooms are dry, but some juices can be drawn if you pinch, and they are generally smooth. The caps are slightly orangey-flesh colored. Some have a slightly orange-red bump in the middle of the cap, and some had zonates which have disappeared at this point. None seem to have bruised any notable color. Odor is difficult to establish.

The gills appear to connect straight with the stem, no indent or bump. They range from a slightly fleshy pallid color to dark brown/almost black, and are close/crowded.

The stems are pale with blotches of brown, some are browner than others. Some are thicker at the top of the stem, but most are fairly straight. They do seem to have those fibres that go up the stem as well. The stems are solid and filled with nothing. There are no veils or rings.

I have been unable to get a spore print from these ones so far, because I left them sitting in a bag overnight. If I do get some prints, I will describe those later.

These were found in a fairly wide healthy-looking (possibly composted/fertilized) lawn in a better-off area of town. There was an old tree stump within about 20 feet of a fairy ring of these mushrooms. There were about 30 to 50 of these mushrooms in the ring, there were some houses and apartments along the street, sort of a suburban area outside of the downtown core. It was between 0 and 4 degrees when I found them, slightly frosty. Not raining, but it had rained within the past 48 hours.

Hard to say what you’ve got there. These seem a little to big and too orange for Panaeolus. Habitat info might help narrow it down.
