As we came to the end of our walk there upon a mossy hummock along the road were these nice greenish mushrooms. I have never seen this color of mushroom before.
There were several scattered through the moss. This rather large one was knocked over.
You can see the gills below.
With me holding this you can tell it wasn't small. Probably 3 to 4 " wide.
As they were popping up this is how they looked.
My best guess by looking through a mushroom field guide is that it is a Tacky Green Russula Russula aeruginea. My field guide is fairly old. It is the tenth printing (1994) of the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms.
If there is an updated name for this mushroom or if I am totally wrong about what it is I would be happy to know just what it is I have seen.
I think our dry spring has made all sorts of plants happy to receive rain. Everything looks perky this morning.
