Within minutes of stepping out of the car, I started finding species I had never seen before. Everything in this thread was under oak because the elevation is kind of low here compared to most the places around Xalapa.
Lepiota hemisclera has a very interesting cap surface.
Sweet mushrooms. Those are some fine lookin' panthers!

Yea it's really unique! I had been wanting to find that one for years.

Yes I made some prints. They are still in Mexico though. I expect I'll come across them when I return in June.
Quote: Mikael said: Cool mushrooms, I really dig those Psilocybe subtropicalis pics.
They are ok....But I could have done much better if I wasn't hunting with a bunch of other people. I hate holding up the whole group just so I can get a perfect natural light shot - When I am with others I generally just flash everything so they don't get bored. I'll return to this place in a month with a white umbrella, various reflectors, two external flash units with flash diffusers, etc...
Beautiful shots! The stacked spore pics are always my favorite, very well done. The variety of species you find on your Mexico trips is always impressive, nothing like discovering new species while collecting delicious edibles and psilocybes. Thanks for living the dream and taking pics along the way.
bello!! so nice i was looking at alonso pictures and was wondering if i ever find subtropicalis and was not able to id
but maybe i have find that lepiota take a look

Do you have any information about the spores, are they ornamented? is the deposit white or slightly pigmented, maybe pale yellow. If this is at least in the same genus as my collections linked above the spores will be finely verrucose, if that's the case I don't think Christian's suggestion of Cantharellus is right as that genus has smooth spores, the spores from my collection also exhibit an unusual flat area that is reminiscent of a plage as in Galerina, my mentor suggested Cantharellula but I'm not sure about that either.
Oh yeah, hello cactu, I hope everything is going well for you and good to see you here
