Observation 45734: Panaeolus (Fr.) Quél.

When: 2010-05-21

Collection location: Fulton Co., Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: AmatoxinApocalypse (AmatoxinApocalypse)

Specimen available

Notes:
Jet black spore print, growing in stable shavings/horse dung.

I have never seen a cinctulus that looked like this before, there were thousands of cinctulus in the pasture I was in and they were all beefy, thick stems.

I thought Panaeolus papilionaceus at first but did not see any tooth like veil remnants around the cap margin.

Stem staining reddish brown, very tough.

I would like to look at these closer, I think there are other options to consider besides P. papilionaceus var. parvisporus, but I can’t say much more without microscopy. :)

I went to check the area I found this one at today and found one more but about 30 yards away. This one as well as the one I found today was growing alone.
