Observation 131108: Panaeolus (Fr.) Quél.

When: 2013-04-01

Collection location: Dalton, Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Stephen (Ιερονυμοσ)

No specimen available

After two hours of searching, only this specimen was found. It is also important to note that this specimen was growing directly off of well-decomposed cow dung. They only keep cows in this field. It was at the lower end of the elevations included in obs 64988; same field as well. I appear to be late to the party this year and I wanted to let the patch recuperate last year.

That’s very interesting that a mushroom resembling that of Copelandia would grow this far north and at this time of year. I wish I would have looked at it under the scope last night as this morning, it appears to be consumed by springtails. I think I can still get spores from it though.

I think it also important to note that some specimens of olivaceus have been confused with P. cyanescens before (weiliiiii’s collection if I recall), so it’s still kinda up in the air I think. For what it’s worth, I can send you the cap if you want. I really wonder if it would be worth your time though given the condition and “sample size”
