    Subaeruginosa profile

    By doing this though and highlighting other habitats etc. doesn't this open up the doors for the "masses"? I am not against the idea, just thought I would put that out there.

    What are these

    Yeah, if you can get a nice clear pic of the cap, gills and also the stem. If the stem is white with blue bruising make sure to note that. Though I suspect the stem will be very tough and brownish. If you can get a spore print that would also be helpful. I suspect it will be white, so you might want to take two, one of white paper one on dark paper.

    Thanks for clearing that up Sally D. I knew I had heard something to that effect. I remember it was pretty much exactly what you said.

    Cactus advice

    Thanks zelly. I knew it was something like that. Not something you want to be making public on the internet I wouldn't have thought.

    Nth Qld - Identification

    Don't look like cubes to me. Any blue bruising detected? Or any bruising noticed? The gills should be darker IMO. Take a spore print, that will help a lot. Agaricus will have a brown spore print, Amanita will be white, so darker paper would be ideal. Cubes should have a dark purplish-brown to blackish spore print.

    What are these

    Any pics of the gills and stem at all? They look to me like Marismius oreades. I have heard that subs don't grow up as far as Newcastle.

    Nth Qld - Identification

    The larger ones look like Agaricus sp. or could be an Amanita sp. I suppose. The little pinkish/purplish ones are probably Gymnopus sp. or perhaps Laccaria sp. "Gold Tops" aka Psilocybe cubensis tend to grow in the warmer months (not sure, could still be good that far up North?) and generally grow in cow manure.
  8. Can't seem to get that link working Hyphal??? EDIT: Never mind. I got it working. MASSIVE!!!

    Cactus advice

    Looks like it might be starting to rot. Did you expose the cut end to moist conditions? Or worse, rain? You need to let cuts heal before exposing them to certain conditions. An application of sulphur can be beneficial as it makes the cut heal quicker and can assist in keeping bacteria etc. out the wound. Personally I would probably re-cut a bit below the wound and dust with sulphur, then let it dry completely before exposing it tot he elements. Is that a geo tag on your pic? If so, you want to watch that hmmm. Anyway, welcome to the community.

    Jamison trade thread

    You do know that Blackberry is a serious environmental weed right? Very hard to control and can be nearly impossible to get rid of. Not sure what the legality of selling the seeds would be, but I can only assume that it is illegal due to it's severely invasive nature. If it isn't ilegal, it should be. Can't believe you are trying to sell it frankly. EDIT: Just saw your location, sorry if I came on a bit strong. Blackberry is a serious problem here in Australia and I have very strong opinions about it and other invasive weeds. I don't think you would be able to import Blackberry seeds into Aus as I would suspect that it would be a highly restricted import due to the above reasons.

    Looks a lot like Leratiomyces ceres to me.

    Meet up: Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle

    This date isn't set in stone. So we will see when people are available. I guess certain dates can't suit everybody, but we can try

    Meet up: Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle

    Probably best to keep the where to PMs perhaps? How does June 23-24 suit people? Or the weekend after? I am not up on good spots, haven't been camping in an age. Somewhere with lots of nice bush, possibly a creek and a bit of open space too would be nice. Somewhere where we can have a nice fire and maybe even a bit of music or something could be an option. A bit out of the way would be cool, but maybe not too far out of the way? I am hoping to be able to drive by then, but not sure. Otherwise I may need to pin a lift if anyone can offer that? I don't ask for much do I? Let's get this ball rolling and get a bit of an idea about numbers etc.

    Another possible tricho

    Yeah, good call, my M. geometrizans has much small spines. I have another one that has massive spines, quite a bit larger than the one pictured.

    Fungi books?

    Forgot all about this. Here is some links that came up with a quick search of The Corroboree, hopefully some useful ones there for people including, but not limited to the OP: http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=27448&st=0&p=297674&hl=+fungi%20+books&fromsearch=1entry297674 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=20884&hl=%2Bfungi+%2Bbooks&fromsearch=1 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=18196&hl=%2Bfungi+%2Bbooks&fromsearch=1 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=21925&st=0&p=226698&hl=+fungi%20+books&fromsearch=1entry226698 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25019&hl=%2Bfungi+%2Bbooks&fromsearch=1 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7927&st=0&p=68743&hl=+fungi%20+books&fromsearch=1entry68743 http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7835&st=0&p=68088&hl=+fungi%20+books&fromsearch=1entry68088

    Mushie hunt?

    Thanks for the compliments, I had forgotten about this thread. I agree with Marcel on the ID. When did this thread become an ID thread?

    Meet up: Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle

    Yeah, I know mate. I used to go doofing a lot. Haven't been doofing in a long time. Can you PM me the details? As I might consider coming along if I can get there and I have the money. When I posted that I was deeply involved in a Shpongle adventure and was kind of hoping we can get into some Shpongle at the camp. It didn't come across that way though. Long story hahaha...

    I can see a clear resemblance there. Though I can also detect a difference too. To me it's looks like there could a little bit of Bridgesoid in there. Hmm, I am definitely becoming more interested in this one.
  21. tonic


    I have to agree with Stilman. It really doesn't have the traits usually associated with T. pachanoi IMHO.
  22. tonic


    I would have said Super Pedro too. I have two different plants of Super Pedro and to me they look a bit different. The one in your pic reminds me a lot of one of them. At the very least I would probably lump it into that whole spiny scop/cordobensis complex. That doll has some pretty well developed thigh muscles
