    Mica Caps, Inky Caps, and literally thousands of other species can be put in the informal group of Little Brown Mushrooms or LBM's. There are so many of them it's nearly impossible to positively identify any single species.

    Plus, there are quite a few members of the "Psilocybe" family in there, so unless you're looking to "take a trip", they are best left alone.

    However, I will say this. Just because you see LBM's growing in a particular spot doesn't mean you should give up on it. I had a really good morel spot for a few years until the dying elm nearby completely gave up the ghost.

    The first 'shrooms to pop would be some species of LBM. They would die off and on would come the morels! Nice flushes! Then, once the morels were done, here would come more LBM's.
