Western Vulcan de Fuego, Mexico
    #11203022 - 10/07/09 09:43 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Many thanks to Cactu and Airdog for making all of this possible.

We slept in a cool barn type structure - not really vacant but not really occupied either.  Saved having to set up tents.

We decided to get up real early so we could hunt as many mushrooms as possible and still get back to Guadalajara in the afternoon.

This is Vulcan de Fuego, the most active volcano in Mexico and one of the most dangerous in the world.

5:30am





This place has really interesting tropical plants (Cuphea sp.)



The locals identified this as a Dwarf Eagle, though I am unable to figure out which species they were referring to.





A rare terrestrial orchid - usually they grow on trees.



I don't know what type of flowers these are.











Dahlia's are extremely colorful



Here is a coffee tree growing at the yerba buena restaurant, our favorite restaurant in the area. 



This may be the most authentic restaurant in all of Mexico.  Here is the kitchen stove.  When they are not cooking food here they are roasting fresh coffee beans.



Here is Cactu griding coffee that was still hot from roasting.  It was very difficult to grind and made Cactu very strong!  Until they told him the secret to using the machine and then it was pretty easy.

Nice shots of a beautiful place Alan.

The plant in the third picture is in the genus Cuphea, also known as the cigarette bush. :smoker:

Only the top half of the pictures loaded for me. :sad:

Psilocybe caerulescens

Sometimes they grow right out of the sandy wall



Or out of the sandy dry creek bed





I tried to make these look a bit like nipples



Kind of worked











Note Cactu's infamous styrofoam box in the background

Other mushrooms found in the same habitat include this almond smelling Agaricus:







A Pholiota





Amparoina spinosissima (previously known as Mycena spinosissima)





Copelandia cyanescens

On cow dung.  I have no idea how cows got down here.  But they did.









No one has been able to figure out what this is.  If I had known it was going to be such a problem I would have saved a sample.







Another unknown



Another unknown



This Conocybe was growing right out of a rock!



The first time I have seen this particular substrate.



Dacryopinax elegans

ID'd by Tom Volk, who said "This looks exactly what I have seen in Wisconsin, North Carolina and elsewherein the USA. It belongs in the Dacrymycetaceae, with tuning fork basidia. Wood decayer, with “reverse cups.” Cool fungus."



Gymnopilus sp.







This Xylaria is really cool.  Tried to save some for ToxicMan but I am not sure if it made it back.



Daldinia eschscholzii





This might be a Clitocybula





Bolbitius





Ganoderma sp.

Nice hunting session!!! wasnt it Alan? see you around next year!!!! always a pleasure...

P.d. can you later point me where did you find those p. augustipleurocystidiata??? was that near colima?

Once again, great pics. The minature eagle looks more like a parrot.

I noticed that Psilocybe caerulescens looks very similar to weilii, how close is the relationship between the two?

Is there a difference in strength?

Would weilii grow in the same enviroment, has anyone tried to spread spores there?

Great pictures.  Nice report.

For 5:30am (first 2 pics) it was surprisingly light outside. 

The dwarf eagle does have a parrot like look.

Nice variety of active and inactive shrooms!

They are very closely related mushrooms in the same section... I have never tried weilii but i guess they might be of equal potency... caerulescens is super potent when fresh....

bout spreading spores... why make 2 similar mushrooms to compete... i dont think weilii is hardy enough for caerulescens habitat

From your front door, travel 204.97 kilometers northwest.

Extremely close.  Almost the same mushroom.  One difference is the pleurocystidia.  I am not sure if there are any macroscopic differences.

Good call!  It was screaming at us for several minutes, exactly as described.
