***Official Indiana Mushroom Season 2014***
    #18518919 - 07/06/13 04:06 AM (1 year, 3 months ago)

I know it's a little late in the season to be starting this thread, but since i couldn't find any Indiana season threads I figured us Hoosiers needed our own. This thread is meant for Indiana (and surrounding states) Shroomerites to gather and share information on ALL active, non active, toxic, edible, and/or non edible wild fungi growing here in Indiana. Very few Hoosiers are even aware that psychoactive mushroom do in fact grow here, let alone have the knowledge to correctly identify them. I am in the process of collaborating various info to make a "Hoosier Psychoactive Hunting Guide" (which will be posted in my sig once I get it finished), but wading through all the info may take some time. I would like to use some of y'alls pics of local finds in the guide, so "Take your best shot!" and maybe your pic will get picked. :wink: Feel free to post pics from earlier this season, since morels and pecker heads are already done for the year. Here's a few pics from July 4th:


These were found on a huge oak that fell a few years back. The two forks split opposite directions and extend 80 ft out from the trunk. Both forks are covered in these. Notice how the moss discolored the ones? A truly impressive site, one I will most likely photograph again this weekend.


These were found on and around the trunk of the massive fallen oak. I have no idea what the truffle looking globs are or why they are secreting clear fluid.


These little guys where all over a dead tree that hasn't fallen yet (not sure what kind of tree, will find out this weekend)


Don't know if this is mycelium or what, but it's everywhere in clusters on the dirt


This is some kind of slime mold I think. growing on a old fire log at my abandoned campsite from high school. Place is completely grown over now.


These were found in the yard at my GF's mother's house. The Boletes are the only ones in all these pics that I can truly identify. Oddly, one of them produced gills instead of pores. Tried taking a print, but no spores fell :frown:

    So next time you're out in the yard or woods, fishing or hunting, or just out enjoying nature in this beautiful state of ours, keep your eyes peeled and camera ready. You never no when you might stumble on a bit of magic!

I'd say the first group of the bottom 4 groups is gymnopus, the second is psathyrella, the third like you already said are boletaceae of some variety and then #4 is probably Phylloporus rhodoxanthus, the gilled bolete. Cool finds man, way to rep your state!

Cool. Thanks. Any idea on the fan-like ones growing on the oak? Or the first and last in group #2 (the middle two have been ID'd as L. perlatum)?

I'm not great with polypores but I'd say the reddish one is trametes versicolor and the one that is white and green is lenzites betulina. Shots of the other side of each could probably verify that.

Onboard flash + macro = bad times. Unless you can control the output of your flash and set it as low as it will go.

depending on how your camera is laid out, sometimes you can dampen the flash by putting a finger over part of it (like 50% - 75%) and get better results that way.

You can tape a piece of paper over the flash to act as a dampener, or go out and buy a cheap ring flash

Yep, mine is pretty high up so the flash isn't a big deal, but on compact cameras with the flash set beside the lens things get ugly.

Found these today growing at the base of my father's Japanese Elm. I believe they are Phoenix Oysters. Am I correct?

They look like Armillaria to me.

Don't Armillaria all have an annulus? These do not.

Some Armillaria sp. do have an annulus. Some do not.

Are any of the Armillaria sp. NOT edible? I saved the hardwood chunks from the stem butts to see if I can cultivate them on mulch.

Alright, think I've got them ID'd. Armillaria tabescens, the only North American Armillaria sp. to not have an annulus. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. :smile:

Found this at my uncle's house. Printed a dark, chocolate brown. Pretty sure it's the common field mushroom, Agaricus campestris.
