A neighbor found something growing from the cardboard mulch under her pear tree.   She brought me one to ask what it was.  You tell me :< )  My camera batteries failed after only a few pics.  Obviously late for this first flush, but more might be coming.

Trying my best here to see if I am learning much. :) Is it a Psilocybe Cyanescens?

Beautiful pictures of them! Really glad you got to snap one of those later ones before they went too far off :) The small ones look so much like they could be other types of mushrooms until they get a bit meatier

But the pins have white stems and will readily turn blue.  The white stems are only white on the outside, and are a tan inside.   They also have white rhyzomorphs.

Really good note to have on them, I'll keep that one in the back of my head when identifying. Looking forward to more from you as always Alder :) Good stuff

Must let her remain innocent, eh? 

 

What I find most interesting is how they found the cardboard mulch for their home.

Gallerinas have a hollow stem, if the stem bruises blue, is solid instead of hollow, and you got a purple spore print then you are in there man!

ID help?

 

=====================

 

While I was out looking for more wavy caps to photograph yesterday, I came upon this specimen.    Anyone know what it is?   Not all wavy caps are wavy caps, eh?

There were these as well, so the quest wasn't without some success.

A few days ago I pushed back the cardboard to discover that they aren't growing on the cardboard, but seem to be growing on OSB or waferwood scraps that have grown into the ground over a couple years.  Look what I found when I pushed the cardboard back:

This is what it looked like before I pushed back the cardboard:

That looks like maybe Lactarius rubidus chilling with your wavy caps.

It's a Lactarius, but not L. rubidus.    It's closer to L. subviscidus, L. luculentus or one of the many species in that group.

At first glance I thought it was Gallerina, but it has no stipe. The brown stems made me think that. Spore print? Does it have a Pellicle? You are a lucky guy brother. I been out hunting several times and came home with nada. I wish I would find a group like that. Still early in the season though so hopes are high. Been kinda dry here though.

The spore print on cyans can be tricksy. When its fresh its purple but as they dry they start to look brownish.

How readily are those bruising for you Alder? The ones in my area (or at least the one patch I've located) bruise quite slowly. Slow like the blue doesn't start for about five minutes after injury.
