is definitely cow dung.
i’ve seen a lot of it…lol.
you are going to need to dry whole specimens for study.
you should send them to Byrain for study.

I may have the print floating around somewhere, I’ll see if I can find it. I’ve found them in the same place every time I’ve looked this year, I’ll hopefully be able to find fresh specimens this week.

I’m sure there haven’t been horses in this area and only cattle (at least for the past few years.) For this reason I’m hesitant about calling these Panaeolus subbalteatus/cinctulus as well…

wow, cow dung…???
