    #1294765 - 02/09/03 10:44 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

okay today i went fishing and i thought id look at the cow patties that are around to see if anything was growing well some mushies had sprouted and shriveled and died cause its way cold for shrooms right now. anyways do lbms grow outa shit? cause these were really wet so it was hard to id them but the look like the shape and size of what ive read about copelandia(sp?) cyans. so im happy and im gonna go back and look when it warms up but i dont want to get my hopes up u know. oh yea one more ? i saw these little cones like funnel shaped coming out of like every cowpattie i found i figure its a type of fungus just wanted to see if anyone knew anything about them. thanks for all ur time and patience. peace

They are called coprophilic mushrooms, growing from dung.

okay ive read everything the shroomery has on mushroom hunting and ive read other sources ive gone through mj's site and i know what that i havent given u enough info to id if they were copes. that said i just wanted to know if any lbms grow from dung ive done a search on them here and ive seen them mentioned growing from just about everything except dung. thanks for your time again and does corophilic refer to all shrooms growing from dung or just the little funnels i was talking about. they are about a cm wide a grayish color and some had little balls kinda like fish eggs in them. peace.

You just gave enough information to get an approximate ID on your funnel shaped mushrooms. They sound like Cyathus stercoreus, the common dung loving Bird's Nest fungus. There are several closely related species, but this is the most common.

The word "coprophilic" translates literally as "dung loving" and is used to describe any mushroom which grows on dung.

Happy mushrooming!

In general, saprophytes tend to crowd each other out. I would expect dung inhabitors to be similar to wood rotting fungi (I'm a bit more familiar with them). If so, then there will be a succession of various fungi depending on the age of the cow patty. Quickly after it's "laid" some species of fungus will take it over and grow until it exhausts some nutrient. At that point a secondary fungus will move in and repeat the cycle. And so on, until there is litle or nothing left.

If this is so, then you would do well to observe as best you can how old each cow patty is and see if you can figure out what the succession of species is. If you can work that out, then you will be able to go into a field and very quickly tell if you should come back in 6 weeks or if you need to just find a new field. The succession of species will probably be very dependent on the locale, so it might not help much to know what it is somewhere else, especially far away.

If you do figure this out, please come back and tell us what you learned. Even if it doesn't help anybody else find the species they're looking for it would be interesting.

Happy mushrooming!

i think ur right about the succesion of seprate species of fungus on dung. because cubes dont usually take to fresh dung maybe this is because there is another already there perparing it for them. anyways i dont think that i will have to worry about another field my friends cousin who lived near my friend hunted the same feild all through his highschool years with some large harvests. i will try my best to find out the order of succesion of species and report back if i have any luck. thanks again. peace
