Observation 66309: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.

This single group of fungi were found in the same area under the Norfolk Pines.
I normally find Amanita muscaria in this spot at this time of the year. Unfortunately none were to be found.
The fungi shown were pale in colour, gilled and without any real aroma. The size of the largest cap was about 2.5cm. The image with the greenery was not the local soil. the other image shows the true soil type. (This is a private property and I had been noticed by an over curious Bull.) Time to exit!.

Also note the bright orange area, similar in this regard to I. Pudica and a few other bright, orange makers.

Come on, take another look at it.

Comment on Animal dung

The area was littered with animal dung, but the fungi was growing in the soil.
I think I would lean towards Panaeolus (Fr.) Quél. except that the images in my reference look more like Inocybe sp. (confusing!!!) I will go with the General Consensus………Chow, kk


Thanks for the ID CureCat.I looked up my reference and it also has listed Inocybe eutheles. The only thing that I did not notice was it is supposed to have a strong odour of chlorine bleach. The reference states that they are also found in Pine forests? What do you think? As it was raining fairly heavily at the time, and a rogue bull checking me out, I was lucky to get the images I managed to produce.

on the PV remnants around the edge of the cap look brown.

What was the substrate? It appears to be dirt and maybe some decaying pine needles and roots… But if there was a bull in the area, then dung is a possibility- though to me, there does not appear to be dung on the base. Also, the pileus looks slightly tomentose, rather than smooth or breaking up into scales. Lastly, the colours here seem a little bit odd- was this staining blue? A spore print would have settled this pretty easily.
