Psychoactive Mottlegills?


Recommended Posts

Probably these represent a species of Panaeolus. The jet-black spore print supports this proposal, as does the lack of ornamentation on the cap surfaces (as opposed to either Coprinellus or Coprinopsis). Mushrooms representing species of genus Parasola also have black spore prints, and some have relatively smooth caps. But these look more like Panaeolus to me. However, I doubt they are P. cinctulus. That species generally has a cap that features concentric bands of different color (dark brown, light brown, tan) while it dries out and becomes completely very pale when it's completely dry. The stalks of P. cinctulus also tend to be thicker. 

I think a microscope would be necessary to get a confident ID on the species seen here.
