Mushroom(?) identification

Asked April 4, 2019, 2:36 PM EDT

Out of curiosity I am trying to identify a small mushroom/toadstool found in horse manure piles: about 2" high, small dark grey to black, ovate cap about 1" high x 3/4" diameter, narrow white stem. I have heard they are toxic.

Hi, thanks for your question.
We do not identify mushrooms as Master Gardeners. You can contact Vera Evenson at the Denver Botanic Gardens, evensonv@botanicgardens.org. She is their mushroom ID expert.
