West Central Florida brownish in lawn

Recommended Posts

Marasmius oreades is a possibility. So is Marasmius nigrodiscus http://www.mushroomexpert.com/marasmius_nigrodiscus.html . Also, I would not rule out Gymnopus (eg. G. dryophilus) or Connopus acervatus http://www.mushroomexpert.com/connopus_acervatus.html . These all have white spore prints. Also, there may be similar southern NA species that I don't see here in PA.... Ahhh! Here's an example that seems good , Marasmius floridanus http://www.mushroomexpert.com/marasmius_floridanus.html .

I think maybe this last suggestion is the best fit.

I agree that they don't look like M. oreades.  The gills aren't enough well spaced and they lack the umbonate cap.

I'm always hesitant to offer suggestions for Florida, as the fungal flora there is so different than what I'm familiar with.
