hey mate, would really need to see pics of the underside, gills and stems and such. Looks like you could have some subs there but would have to see underneath them to be sure.

I recon if you can go out with an experienced picker thats always the best way to learn id's, maybe make a post in the chill space or even mycology see if anyone in your area want to go out for a pick with ya. If your round sydney hit me up!

Ravers do it for hours, Doofers do it for days!

 

 

Hit me up for wicked sick tie dye, my awesome wife is awesome at it and can do pretty much anything. Even surfboards!

DO NOT EAT

I can't see any actives in there that I couldn't differentiate from a gallerina.

Infact your 6th picture in your first post looks like Gallerina Marginata (Unicolour), deadly poisonous.

I'd need a good focused picture of the caramel mushroom's gills, unless they're the same as the ones you posted in the second post, which does not = sub.

Be careful out there :)

They're all called 'LBMs'.. Little Brown Mushrooms that are uninteresting and probably poisonous. These are the common mushrooms that most people pass over without taking a second glance. But if you're really interested we can have a go once you tell us the spore print colour.

If you're looking for Psilocybes (which i presume you are because of the 'Psilocybe silvatica' suggestion) then the only one around this time of year is Psilocybe subaeruginosa.

'Subs' have -white- stems, caramel caps and blue streaks where damaged. Almost nothing else looks the same, and if you spore print them as well you can make a confident ID.

Also although people do find subs in pine forests, most of the time they're growing from the shredded woodchips and woody debris from logging or fallen branches, NOT straight out of an old stump, root or from the needles themselves.

So try State forests that have lots of shredded wood lying around, or better yet, garden beds and landscaped areas with lots of woodchips.

It does look like you found some kind of oyster though. Whether it's ostreatus or australis well I can't tell from those photos (maybe i couldn't ever tell from photos alone).

Found a lot of fimicolas around today. States book say they may be active, is this correct? I'm finding it hard to believe

P.fimicola is said to be active though I know of no bioassays. It would be very worthwhile to take pics of this species since pics of the species are extremely rare.

there are no active mushrooms there and you will more than likely not find any in the great southern unless you find some gymnopolus
in western australia you will be looking for psilocybe subaeruginosa wich you will NOT find in the great southern unless you stumble across a patch someone has created wich is NOT gonna happen if your in the great southern and want shrooms your gonna have to either buy them or drive to the infamous B-TOWN and pick em yourself wich is not advised unless you have someone who actually knows wat theyre looking for even then its not advised to to the police presence so if you really want to look for magic mushrooms down south try doing some research on active gymnopolus

i find that pretty hard to believe anyone who tells you that is probably lieing or has made a patch somewhere but as far as i can tell noone has the brains to even try it from people i no an talk to

haha sorry man but unfortunately its just the way it is the odds of finding anything are virtually nill
as i said you could do some research on gymnopolus you might have some luck but chances of finding anything are still pretty slim
otherwise you can always just keep your hopes up an just keep hunting there's alot of unidentified and undiscovered mushrooms in the south of w.a.
just always make sure you do alot of research and i mean ALOT mushroom hunting and identification is not an easy task
so alot of research is key

goodluck

The Oyster looking mushrooms are most likely 'Omphalotus nidiformis', or 'ghost fungus'. Next time you find some bring some fruits home and put them next to your bed, when you turn the lights out and let your eyes adjust you get a nice surprise!

how do you know for sure it's fimicola? they are quite difficult to macroscopically identify even for mycologists. they are easily confused with Panaeolina foeinsecii and various other Panaeoli species. the only way to know for sure is microscopy
