Mottlegill Fungi

Observed: 11th August 2013 By: peter.orchard000

Four growing together on horse dung. Though egghead mottlegill but seems to have a frill around the cap - petticoat mottlegill?


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

It really helps if you can give cap and stem size also a clear photo of the gills to show how they are attached to the stem (stipe)as this would enable people to agree with you.

All the outward appearances of Petticoat Mottle Gill -
Shiny, cap colour, edge-frill, stipe marks and fuzzy base, on dung, strong conical shape - but hey I can't agree yet!
It should be rather more delicate than the 'straight' mottlegill (Panaeolus semiovatus).
Fenwickfield is right with her suggestions and a also little more descriptive text might help.

NO agreements though!
