The adventures and experiences documented…

I believe I identified those brown mushrooms I always have growing in my front yard and even in the barkdusts in spots.

  • I did a spore print and the spores were brown as shown in the image below.
  • When young, the cap was rolled under a bit.
  • The caps were brown in color.
  • Under the cap was a light yellow tinge and it looked as though the gills went down the stalk just a bit.
  • The stalk bruised brown.
  • The stalk can be slightly off center.

Pretty sure this is a Paxillus involutus. Also known by the name “Poison Pax”. And as the name eludes – this is quite poisonous.
