Chlorophyllums are generally not recommended for eating as opposed to Macrolepiotas. Some Macrolepiotas have even jumped to Chlorophyllum.

Council spread some new mulch around a park where I walk my dog. These popped up after the rain last week.

I only have a crappy 5mp phone camera, so quality is pretty poor. Tried my first go at ID'ing using "Fungi of the Perth Region and Beyond" field guide - http://www.fungiperth.org.au/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_download&gid=73&Itemid=

Just got confused though haha. Anyone got any ideas on the id's, for my own education if nothing else?

There are some psilocybe subaeruginosa about in SA at the mo. Here are some pics from the last week and a half or so.

And some Galerina Marginata doing a good job at looking like subs... Careful out there!

And a couple of others found in natural scrub land. I think the yellow one on the right is maybe a Austropaxillus spp. but not sure. If anyone knows what the tiny, orange, wavy ones on the log in the left side pic are please let me know!

And these guys were hiding inside a log in the pine forest.

@Zed240 - Your 'Galerina Marginata' looks a lot more like a Hypholoma sp. to me. Not saying for sure becaue the photo isn't very detailed, but it's very likely.

I am happy to take your word on that! They certainly do a good job of being a sub lookalike though.

[edit] I have a couple more pics of these so I might make an ID request...

agreed, the tuft fruiting might indicate Hypholoma

Cubism the first species look like Chlorophyllums, but you didn't show underside, so what can we really say?

Here's a couple more from today Mutant (both sides this time :wink: )

First ones a big (more than 20cm cap) older one.

Agaricus arvensis???

Seconds only a few days old, maybe 7or 8cm.

Maybe Chlorophyllum molybdites?

Or are they both the same???

Cubism the first one shows some greenish colours in the gills, so it might be indeed Chlorophyllum and definately no Agaricus. You might have to make a spore print to be sure. (will be greenish)

I can definately not ID , as I live in another continent, Chlorophyllums are not as common as Macrolepiotas...

Both specimens seem to have been rained on a lot.. So they might indeed be the same Chlorophyllum ... or not...

Yeah its been absolutely pissing down with rain the last few days. Thanks for your input mutant. I ain't about to eat anything just more curious and keen to learn so its nice to at least see your opinion. Cheers!

Found this on Friday and took some pics that night with a decent camera. Pretty stoked to have found one of these. :D

Omphalotus nidiformis - ghost fungus

got a chance last weekend to have a look around the banks of the Goulbourn river banks (Victoria) in

some of the more, untouched areas of bush.

came across several of these. white spore print.

Xerula I believe.

IMG 1071b

also found several of these. tan colour spore print.
this one the largest (70mm cap) was growing under a fallen red gum.

and these were growing on top of the same log.

Hi Mutant. i used a friends Canon 5d Mark3 with a Canon 24-105 lens. Taken in a pitch black room, no light other than the light from the fungi, exposure time was between 20 and 30 secs, ISO was between 1600 - 5000, F-stop between 4 and 9. :)

My housemate actually found another small patch of these at another spot a day later. He recognized them after seeing my finds. So I took some more pics but I put a little friend in the middle of the fungi in the first couple of these shots cause I wanted to see if it'd light it up. Worked OK I reckon. :)

You can also see that his finds are not as bright as the ones I found.

I also found a couple of macrolepiota clelandii which I tried some of last night. Was actually VERY tasty! I'll be looking for more of those when I'm out and about. It's a pity they aren't as gregarious as something like amanita muscaria!

Cut up on the board and halfway through frying. :)

cubism>>

be on the look out also for the red colorations in the stem surface and cut stem in some Chlorophylums (seems to be present in yr specimens), something not present in Macrolepiotas in general.

lindsay>>

The 'Xerula' is interesting : did you check if the stem traveled down further than the piece you picked?

The orange one seems like Gymnopilus junonious . Boy you have lots of Gymnomilus in OZ! :P

Zed240 >>>

awesome job with the photographs man, congrats, and the new ones rule as well, lol!

there's where the 'myth' comes from. Our Omphalotus (olearius), common in cultivated lands and olive groves, is reported to rarely be lumescent, but there you got a luminent Omphalotus alright!

man these photos are really rare I would guess, no?

also

Macrolepiotas are really really tasty and IMO pretty different tasting than most mushrooms... kind of creamy... definately one of my favourites.

and to finish....

Clathrus ruber and fly somewhen in january

Gymnopilus junonious seems to be the closest I have come to identifying the yellow one. thanks mutant.

the cap seems to have more a striped pattern. other picks I've searched seem to have a scale pattern?.

have not see yet in any groups yet, but its been light on the rain here over last month until the last few days.

going for a another look around this weekend.

found some Trametes versicolour on my mates old wood pile today. so I took some good limbs home.

happy I am.

Found a Gymnopilus purpuratus a week ago too. Very happy to have found one. First time I've come across one. Fingers crossed to find more. I love the look of them growing gregariously out of logs like pretty, psychedelic shiitake. :)

Someone here had pics of an awesome Purpuratus log they had been given I reckon. Was cool.

And a ruffle capped sub for fun from last weekend. (LOTS of subs out and about in SA at the mo)

post-13830-0-15142400-1401761240_thumb.j

So get out there and go for a hunt!!
