It has been raining quite a bit here and various mushrooms are growing everywhere. I found these reddening lepiotas just this morning growing in my neighbors yard.

The scientific name is Leucoagaricus americanus and these are a nice edible.

Sadly these guys were growing in fertilized mulch so I didn't want to harvest them and eat a chemical infused mushroom.

The pear shaped puffballs are also out.

These were also growing in fertilizer so I didn't harvest them. They do taste great and you can harvest tons of them and store them after being cooked in the freezer.

Look at this swarm of fairy inkcaps.

Their Latin name is Coprinus disseminatus and they are edible however they dissolve and get slimy when cooked and they are very small so it's kind of pointless in harvesting them for food.

Now for a UFO. This one has a tinge of yellow on the white cap and is about four inches in diameter.

The gills are brownish purple, they remind me of Agaricus campestris but these are much smaller than the meadow mushroom.

Here is another UFO known as a LBM (little brown mushroom).

I picked one to see what the gills look like and didn't see anything that would help me easily find the ID. Just another lawn mushroom species.

That's all for now thanks for looking :-)
