Observation 70382: Panaeolina foenisecii (Pers.) Maire
When: 2011-06-28
Who: CreamyD
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Almost didn’t notice all of these growing under a mulberry tree in grass. Probably 20 or less in all. Spore print revealed in one a light brown spore pattern, the other the gills seemed to liquefy and leave a dark brown fluid. Found one with a slug devouring the gills. Most had a brown ring around the edge of the cap, some with speckles and other rings protruding onto the cap, some very plain beige.

Recognized by sight: There looks to be some P. foenisecii in there, but the gills wouldn’t liquefy (Maybe soften and rot if left too long to print?). So perhaps a mixed collection, especially if those speckles on the cap and liquefying gills refer to some Coprinellus micaceus? I believe most if not all of the pictured specimens are P. foenisecii though.

Left several more hours the liquefied sample was crawling with maggots, that would probably be the reason.
