Yes, the season is about to begin. No longer in Tas and missing the change in temps that happen about now.

Careful of those shaggies - according to DNA our shaggy parasols may be a little different to those found elsewhere. Some eat them fine, but some projectile vomit :)

Hey O, I've been adding many books to my cart the last day or so, hadn't seen the one you posted (first one on the left) looks handy ,)

Not sure if you had seen this one, presumably handy all over the south/ south east

Larger fungi of South Australia.

Grgurinovic, C.A.

Our Stock ID: 25157

Adelaide: The Botanic Garden, 1997 .

Large octavo, paperback,725 pp., colour photographs and illustrations, black and white text illustrations. BRAND NEW.

AU$60.00

Representing the first major revision of the tamonomy of the macrofungi since the 1930s, Australian and overseas students will greatly welcome this volume. This title goes a long way to fill in our knowledge of the macrofungal flora of southern Australia, and should allow increased study of the various chemical constituents of physiological potency.

It's from The seller I've been looking at, and thought of you at the time so had to share after seeing this thread :)

cheers

A field guide to Australian fungi - my first and favourite guide book. Brings back great memories of tramping around the forests, learning every fungi in sight.

so why start a mush thread in march?

probs cause in most of the southern half of Aus it's the time of year where the majority of species are fruiting!

Cool K, i will check this book out, would you mind sending me a link to where you found this book please.........

nope, mid april on a good year, the Omphalotus nidiformis and the Chlorophyllum brunneum were early this year and shrivelled to nothing in the warm weather a few days after starting this thread.

Temps are lookn sexy round here, not long to go, what i go by now is a line that Obtuse wrote - rain has nothing to do with it, its the dew point that matters (not quoted, or verbatim)

I didn't buy that one, I got 3 others though, I'm picking them up tomorrow arvo in Melbourne, I'll Suss it out for you... 700+ pages for a regional tome could be gold. It's a revised version of a much older book (available through another seller for $25. I could be wrong but the original was more than 50 years old though.

A lot of their reference books don't have pics, I'm guessing they just pull them off google ,)

Hey Berenger, here's another pic not great either! I've had a trusted ID off a couple of people so I guess that's why I think it A. phalloides :)

Thanks Olive :) ahh I took the pics with my phone, pretty crap I know haha 

 

Cool, thanks for that. I'll check that thread out! Yeah, I've never come across A.phalloides before. They are mycorrhizal with Quercus robur (English Oak) so if you look around underneath those you might find some. SA seems to have some cool fungi. We've only just had decent rain here over the weekend so I'm still waiting for the bush/forest to kick off. These pics were in a botanic garden nearby where they irrigate. 

 

Happy hunting!
