TOPIC: Backyard Mushroom ID

Backyard Mushroom ID 8 months 2 weeks ago #3102

Hi everyone. So I am a new member of the AMS and I am really looking forward to learning new things from everyone. So I picked a few mushrooms in the back yard a few days ago and was hoping to ID them just for fun. The bigger ones I found In what could have possibly been a fairy ring. The extremely small ones I found right by my rain barrel. It’s been very dry here up until the last two weeks. I’m located in central Alberta. I tried to get spore prints off of them but they didn’t work. Probably because they had dried out for a day before I tried...oops.

Hi Rob, both of your mushrooms are officially LBM's - little brown mushrooms, in spite of them not being brown. The purplish one could be one of several but the first step regretfully is the sport colour. The other one is just difficult with or without spore colour, likely needing microscopy work. Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Thanks anyways Martin. I knew it might be hard without a spore print. Definitely will be doing it properly next time.

These just happened to be right there in the back yard so I thought why not.
