    Can anybody help with the identification of this mushroom I found it in a deciduous forest worse mainly Maple and oak but a couple scattered beach tree. I believe I to be hypsizygus tessalatus or shemiji or beech mushroom (brown var.) Within my research I discovered it is Is mushroom native to Asia but it is cultivated popularly in America Could this be a species that got introduced to the wild and now flourishes because they are everywhere behind my house any help would be appreciated!

    I also read about a white variety of is variety of the beach mushroom could this be them they are a little larger and the Gill structure is a little bit different but but they are Growing around the Brown ones same areas but they are more abundant than the Brown.

    Upon further inspection and research thinking p. Azrofibrillosa which isn't common for my region but also thinking p. Baecoystis or possibly p. Stntzii idk it is bruising indigo black and spore print is a cinnamon with almost like a pearl like hue to it

    Here is some pics a few days later clusters have matured.. idk what they are I'm almost thinking ovoid? I have been scouring the internet and can't seem to find an ID that fits

    I did some research and I found it to be Sweetbread mushroom a species of Clitopilus scientific name Clitopilus Prunulus Says foraging for this mushroom is discouraged as it is to similar to other poisonous species, clitocybe dealbata Ivory Funnel and Fools Funnel. This is the white ones . The wine coloured ones could be wine cap stropharia a species of roundhead scientific name Stropharia rugosoannulata. Check out as no I’d is 100%

    that's what I wanted to say at first but then you get into the I'd and they don't match whine cap have smokey gills than are close or crowded and these have smokey brown and drop cinnamon or rusty spores

    White ones I identified as a white domecap (luecocybe connata) a white mushroom that will almost always grow in a cluster and to me it smelled kinda like rootbeer with like a minty afternoon almost like fresh artist conch does. It has a slight grayish cap it is a mushroom native to Russia that contains Muscarine. That's what I have read anyways. I just haven't seen anything about a preparation method you could just do a lye extraction like you would with DMT and just smoke the Muscarine?

    I'm doing lots of reading on the other one tho I had a one of my ID apps say Psilocybe ovoid (I always carry my field guid to double check) and I have also thought stump brittle stem but the stioe is to tough to be labeled a brittlestem. I'm gonna order a and really dive into it because there is a azurescens in my area I guess that don't look exactly like the ones in the west. But I trust your judgment also I have the mindset of I want to be wrong even when I know I'm right I'm still reading and searching and questioning because that's how a good observer or scientist should think in my head haha always trying to prove your data is wrong challenging g what you say or think to be true.

    Cyclocybe for the dark spored one and Leucocybe connata for the white one.

    Allen Rockefeller I’d them both What I find interesting is how a mushroom(the white one) came all the way from Russia. I believe Allen and it appears you got the ID right too, but Russia. How interesting

    Thanks Allen! Appreciate your input! I trust your word on it and that's the conclusions I had came up with in the end a cyclocybe of a kind

    My theory is that all mushrooms grow in any place they just lay dormant til they are ready remeber thus world was 1 giant land mass at one time in history then it broke away. So in my opinion the earth is innoculated with all fungi they just have to wait til the time is right. We discover new stuff everyday about fungi. Wind currents also carry spores throughout the world and exported goods and such there is no way it couldn't be possible

    Not possible - these days people do DNA sequencing on soil samples, and upload all of the DNA in the soil to Genbank. The fungi species seen reflect the part of the world that the soil sample comes from - you never see a DNA sequence of a mushroom from far away waiting dormant.

    Not even deep down say close to bedrock where there would be prehistoric aged genes? I mean if all the continents were connected at one point couldn't it be possible that they are just laying deep waiting for the time they can come back? Idk anythings possible in my mind
