didn't get a chance to go bush last weekend, to much culture work at home.

rain and more rain here now and the warmth is still hanging around. great thing hey.

I did get chance to have a look around the farm I work. and this is what I came up

with, more research.

this I believe is Crepidotus mollis. found on a living redgum on a old scar of dead wood.

Crepidotus mollis possibly

this was found on fallen limb of a grey box (eucalyptus), right up underneath.

no clue to what is or were to start. was about 15 cm across.

and these on a really old 30 cm log hiding in the grass, that had more cracks in it than

my great grand mother. going to print and dissect tomorrow to better document.

The Porcini are still out in the Adelaide hills! Found a couple of new spots 2 days ago. Very happy with the days hunt. :) Got about 12, all in nice condition.

Found these on Friday. Found in SA in a pinus radiata forestry plantation in a seasonal creek catchment. Lots of wet grass around that particular spot. They appear to be panaeolus cinctulus!

My assertion of cinctulus is partly based on a TIs confirmation as such on Shroomery. The TI stated he was of the belief it was an active Pan and most likely a cinctulus.

Cincs are known to grow in this area, (just not as prolific as subs, which are everywhere!), and the spore print appears to be completely black with no traces of brown colour as a foenisecii should be.

Having said that, I have not done any microscopy on it as I do not have a microscope at the moment! I have made inquiries to get one though and I have dried this specimen so I can study it later to confirm.

there's some awesome usb scopes out i hear

also P' cinctulus olde name is subbalteatus which can confuse some less familiar with suberauginosas since both are nicknamed "subs" : 3

for the worlds most common mushroom- i still havent found a cinctulus in 12 years of hunting

from neither horse nor lawn

apparently they are able to blue at the very base of the stipe but don't always, and contain a lot of urea wherever possible

their stipe is the fattest of the foenesecii lookalikes very much fatter

The stipe on it also often has striations, but then so do some of the others stipes but apparently less - lol

theyre the largest panaeolus i think too... - composts , well fed lawns-(and only while theyre well fed, or they'll emigrate)..., horses....

april and fall but all year round too

dang notifications didn tell me bout this reply *shakes fist at the sky*

ummm yes uk and I pick EVERYTHING that is edible , so long as I know it is and its not maggoty or growing in polution ...

and so long as there's enough of it/them to leave there so it/they can reproduce still

faves are parasol mushrooms and wood blewits for cooking, and fly agaric for tea and smokes, field blewits are good too,

hen of the woods (maitake) for its stomach cancer fighting power and the taste,

i went off marasmius , and i dont recall uploading a marasmius o' pic , i did upload some little ink caps tho ...

ummm.... wow too many , tryna recall the last 10 yrs of mushroom hunting ,

I like dryad's saddle for its fragrance but stopped collecting it after i learned it was a tree killer... was tasty tho when young, would be used if out on a "wild holiday"

like days of old with ex-milliatary friends who love that sort of thing too... lol before we all had kids n settled down with no time anymore...

i love to hunt velvet shanks , were the first ones i taught my kids :]... for cooking and more anti cancer goodies ....

we have three fairy rings in our acre too , 2 marasmius o' and a st george's mushroom one (they seemed to move in when I layed the stone circle),

I pick a lot of panaeolus for their fragrance and because theyre so abundant :) and its something harmless I can teach the kids more with...,

I have my own jelly ear fungi here but it only "moved in" on a dying elder tree after i started bringing them home all year , every year , for years :)

I love to pick ceps , theyre the most common and abundant mushroom here

ive only ever found libs once , by accident , after giving up a 7 year... yearly hunt for them - lol

I pick birch polypores and fine slice them into soups ...

will try add more as I remember them :)

oh fahk me how on earth could I forget morels !!!! , I actually had 4kilos of morels confiscated from me by a security guard one spring because they were picked at the hospital and he deemed it stealing... what a wanker

yeah that chicken of the woods wasnt picked because it was growing on yew (taxus baccata)

found a place where p' strictipes grows tho ... was there today also , just wrong time of year, if I'm there again when they fruit , I'll try to take the best possible pic I can

- chances are high since its the only place i can find stropharia aeruginosa too and that has to be one of my

fave to photograph/ gaze longingly at

interensting to hear stories from UK ...

jew ear, have in mind it can act like a mild parasitic in a variety of trees..

nice idea on marking the ring with stones!!

aah was the mushrooms that came after the stones , that was plotted correctly down to the sun and moon, not the fairy rings.

they moved in after

when i invited the fae into my circle ;) bout a year later ... if that's what you mean ... i didnt mark the mushroom ring with stones but that would be a good idea too

or dyu mean what a good idea to lay a stone circle? , thank you kindly either way

jews ear (if parasitic at all) , favours dying or dead elders ... and fruits all year round without fail every year

I have seen it on other woods that are long dead but not many

I see this with maitake on dying/dead oaks too , never seen them on any other wood yet , but i learned in studies

they'll do any deciduous hardwood - thinking for cultivation

I had them down as saprophytes in symbiosis as opposed to parasites...., shrug?

- oh yeah , another fave is the beef steak mushroom , only found one growing from chestnut

I saw these brown mushrooms at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve in the ACT last Saturday. There were packs of kangaroos everywhere and the view was spectacular. Great place to visit if you enjoy hiking and being near wild animals.

need more and better photos to ID mushrooms, especially for small ones, and especially for LBMs = Little Brown Mushrooms...

an underside shot is necessary

TH>>

Beef stake, I have found it couple times in chestnut too... how do you cook it?? Nobody among friends that have tried it liked it, including me.. The texture is fine, but the taste.... ?!?!? hmmmm I also remember left to sit in milk (supposed to take that metallic taste away) for a while, but no joy...

Jew ear, yeah it mostly appers in almost dead wood, but I have seen it in a grown-up, but definately NOT DEAD Callistemon (popular ornamental) in a gardens friend so it can happen... People have found Pleurotus in Acacia and Albizia sp as well as Pheonixes here in greece..

These mild parasitics can infect younger trees apart from old ones and freshly dead ones..

again jew ear I dont pick anymore its totally tasteless even if you dry it! How do you use it - well I know its got therapeutic properties, so there's one...

re> the stone circle, I thought you placed the stones AFTER you found the circle to mark it for future reference (to find the circle, to see how the circle evolved grow etc)

aww yeah i adore callistimons , one of my first plants I ever grew (or tried to) , awesome!

re the beefsteak ...I just figured ya fry it like a steak , tasted great , mmmmm metal :P

I love that mushrooms are using newer species .. I wonder how many years will go by before those acacias support 200 plus life forms like an oak does currently here

, I use jews ear as a texture addition in soups and for its blood thinning properties , definitely more of an "add in" ingredient than a main one.

the west of the circle has the georges mushroom , the north and east have the marasmius, i'm pretty sure they'll overlap before long or I will see some

mycological assertive dominance if not , .....

-after seeing that paul stamets petri dish with 2 different clones of morels it got me wondering ...

and yeah it's amazing just how much the "old ways" work ... maybe inviting the fae in was simply a mental process of releasing all "inherited beliefs of society" ?

if it really happened to be a chance quirk of nature that they "answered" and felt very welcome indeed... then the universe has an amazing sense of humour !

- anyone grown candy caps here? , the dessert mushroom

It's not surprising that people mistake Volvariella speciosa with death caps I suppose. Yours do look similar, Cubism, the ones I've found here look a bit greyer than yours but if you've never seen a phalloides in person I can see why you might stuff it up.

I think your Suilleus luteus might be something else though. They usually have a very defined ring in young ones and yellower pores than your specimen. Were there pines nearby? I think they only grow with pines...

And do your Gym J's bruise over there? Or are they inactive like ours in SA seem to be?

Ahh right. There was only one solo Suilleus looking mushroom all by itself, and these photos were all in native bush (Marri, Karri etc.) so yeah, I guess not. Definately more white than the yellow pores ones under the pines.

Never seen a death cap so will take your word for it :) Do the deathcaps have the warty appearance like A. muscaria? These V. speciosa have quite a smooth waxy cap.

As for the gyms, it sounds like there may be a few undescribed golden species out there. These could also be G. allantopus but from my reading I thought they didn't get so big. There's definately blue bruising species in the swamps around Perth of the orange/golden variety. You can also see blue on the stem butts and myc. But these ones showed no signs of blue bruising.

Here are a couple of pics of Suilleus luteus from about 2 months ago. The pores also don't seem to be anywhere near as large on the S luteus I've found compared to your mushie. You can't go far in our pine plantations without stepping on SLs here during mush season.

Here are some pics of Amanita Phalloides from here in SA back at the very start of April this year. I saw a few about exclusively with oaks when I was on the hunt for porcini early in the season. It seemed like the death caps were about for around 2 weeks only, haven't seen a single one since early April. No warts though, sometimes some of the veil is left on top though, you can see a bit of the veil on the caps in all 3 of my pics. Otherwise they aren't slimy like a Volvariella seems to be. They're greenish on top and have a rougher texture to the cap.

And just for the sake of comparison, here's a Volvariella speciosa that i found at the back of my workplace about 2 weeks ago. I think people usually only stuff it up and mistake Palloides for these when they are young and still in their ovoid type structure.

[edit] - I wish our Gym Js were active. They are really abundant in the early parts of the season and they are always huge too. I love the look of them and it'd just be neat to see some that bruised. :)

most likely not Laccaria sp, but Lepista sp. Probably not L. nuda and probably edible
