Silas Hall (United States) - 03 July 2012

From two of the books I've referenced. "Mushrooms of Colorado"-(Mary Hallock Wells/ D.H.Mitchel,M.D.) and "Mushrooms of N. America" - (Orson K. Miller jr.) In North America it is commonly called the "Mower's Mushroom"- because it's so common in lawns. 'Panaeolus Foeniseccii' - elliptical spores with warts/pore at apex. Adnate gills with Dark purple/brown spore prints. Poisonous!- as in Hallucinogenic. Have not experimented myself. *Akin to PANAEOLUS SEPARATUS - also Hallucinogenic.
