Panaeolus fimiputris


Grows on manure of cows and horses in open grassland. Unfortunately I don't know the English translation and could not find it. So if anyone knows it, please help me.

I just saw this...

They clearly show something more along the lines of P. papilionaceus and not what you found which has an annulus and less pigment to start with...

I'm not sure what P. fimiputris is supposed to be, but its an old name which Gerhardt didn't use and I may be missing the pages with the important discussion on it, but by his keys this is clearly Panaeolus semiovatus var. semiovatus.

Hi Telse and Alice. Thanks for the info. I'm pretty sure on the species because it is very common in our dunes. But I can't seem to find the English name. Check the link, this is in the same area.

Hello there Fo Tony. This looks like the Egghead Mottlegill Mushroom.
Here are some links. Cheers.

This one is very similar and the common names are listed as shiny mottlegill or egghead mottlegill
