Notes: Just two characteristic—-white spores and growth on dung—-suffice for Matchmaker to ID a mushroom as T. tylicor. In fact, there is a good match with the entire description. (Will add pictures.) Spore size here: 5.5-6 × 5-5.5 microns.
There is a small issue with the habitat. The only kind of dung that the description mentions as a possible substrate for T. tylicolor is human feces. Even though the place where these mushrooms were growing is not far from campgrounds, I don’t believe the wonderful substrate is of human origin. Perhaps what the picture shows is enough to ID the beast?

I found a different white spored mushroom on horse dung in Veracruz, Mexico yesterday and thought of this observation. Mine was purplish and looked like a Clitocybe/Lepista.
Maybe it’s bigfoot dung… hehe
