Observation 64980: Panaeolus acuminatus (Schaeff.) Quél.
When: 2011-03-31
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Football field adjacent to Grass lake- collection spot.

JET BLACK SPORE PRINT. I also Collected and posted some these last week from Marshall middle school- pretty sure they’re P.acuminatus due to the Black spore print— not purple which would indicate P. foe’s. Also have a very “dusty” and or velvety hirsute stem that is purplish/wine red when handled.

Could also possibly be Panaeolus fimicola due to black spore deposit and dusty hirsute stalk.

Color of the stipe

The reddish brown color of the stipe and black spore print would definitely point the opposite direction of Panaeolina foenisecii.

Panaeolina foenisecii has a brittle silky white stipe, as well as a hygrophanous pileus that fades to a straw/tan color.
