    Microscopy and DNA workshops

    The workshop went really well. Very enthusiastic crowd. Everyone had a lot of fun. We'll probably keep doing them every few months. Great to hear you're starting a study group! It is really hard to learn without someone there showing you. I managed to work out how to do squash plates from a video, but couldn't work out what other sections were being taken until someone showed me IRL and then it was pretty easy. Might be worth making some videos or something. This book is worth checking out too. It has diagrams of microscopic features, measurements and chemical reactions https://shop.fungimap.org.au/product/larger-fungi-of-southern-australia/ And you're totally right re the optics.

    Microscopy and DNA workshops

    How did the microscopy workshop go? Wish I'd been there. Starting an informal microscopy study run today with another forum member to try and get some basic teks in hand to add to current research. Is way more daunting than I thought. Microscopy, like tissue culture and TLC, is an entire field of knowledge of it's own First lesson is cleaning our microscopes. It's mouldy in NNSW and even the best stored scopes cop it We're starting with the cheap-arsed compound scopes we've had for years ( USB camera, ebay ) to see how far we can push their utility before we look at the worth of saving for upgrades. Tho good optics and lens' are important- I once used the USB camera on a 1920s microscope with immaculate optics and the results were absolutely brilliant- way better than the cheap arsed ebay one I was comparing it to

    They're taking over! Possible Gyms?

    Never got a 100% ID, they're most likely a gymnopilus sp. However not sure which. There's only a few genus out there I'm seriously confident identifying

    Great pic JR, let us know what the genus is please.

    Found on mulch

    No idea Jhono, but see if you can get hold of a copy of Gary P Menser's book, 'Hallucinogenic and Poisonous Mushroom Field Guide', (available through discreet searching on the net), and use the dichotomous keys provided; you may be able to at least key out to genera, which may at least give you some idea of what you're dealing with. Cheers, Voakanga (also from NE NSW)

    Edible/Medicinal culture seeking thread

    Good point Solipsis, L. Coralloides is an Australian species. Looking for both then. DFAM is an Oyster mushroom strain (Don't feed after midnight). Thank you for the offer, If I get stuck I will be in touch, but I would prefer to get the cultures locally if possible.

    To the best of my ability, the mushrooms are likely Mycena species... No idea about the fruit, but it looks amazing!

    NZ members?

    Hey everyone, just thought I know this post is old but thought I'd introduce myself. I'm North Island based and have had a big love for all things ethnobotanical for the past 10 years or so. Always on the hunt for novel seeds/seedlings/dried plant matter etc. Some things that I could possibly part with for the right trade could be H. salicifolia, I. violacea, A. colubrina, C. zacatechichi.... Maybe others. Also interested in buying/trading topical books etc. PM me!
