So Last summer I found this...(no pics)
    #1330582 - 02/24/03 06:15 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

My neighbour has like 5 bird feeders(containing birdseed, duh)...The birds spill the seeds onto the ground, and later in the summer, these clusters of shrooms grow out of the ground where the seeds spill...Directly under every bird feeder. The shrooms look like this:

Almost like a cube...
Orange(ish) caps, that look just like cubensis caps, But ORANGE.
Stems are whiteish to dark with age, they bruise a blue/ green colour within an hour.
No spore print taken/ but the gills are greyish, turning darker with age.
They grow in clusters, only on grain...This is all I can remember for now...
I was thinking they might be GYMs? :grin:
Any questions you have, will be answered...Sorry if this is a vague description.

Gymnopilus have orangish-brown spore prints. The gill color suggests that these mushrooms spore prints will be another color, so I would suspect not.

If you find more then you need to collect some and get some spore prints and post a detailed description. They sound interesting.

Happy mushrooming!

Well this is great, because Like I said, I found them around August-september of last year...It looks like they only had 1 or 2 flushes, because I only found them for 3 days, then nothing.
I might be wrong about the gill color TOXICMAN, I'm just going by memory. They VERRY WELL may have been orange gills as well....I'm getting realy excited.
Can Gymopolus grow in Ontario Canada?
The mushroom spores may already have been on the seeds that were in the bird feeder, and I have no Idea where she bought the bird seed at...She died in January!!!!!!!Poor old gal, she was nice...(R.I.P. lady)
Anyways, I thought gimnopolus were wood loving? Can they grow on grain?
Because the mush I found were only colonizing the birdseed, and grew in nice clusters...
Oh yeah, the stems were very sturdy, considering some were water logged(from rains) if that helps...

Gymnopilus are wood decomposers, but my experience is that they prefer old, dead tree trunks. Here, here, and here are a few photos I would say are fairly typical of Gymnopilus. Most specimens I have found were smaller than these look. I would expect that Gymnopilus species could be found in the forests of Ontario.

The description of habitat you gave (on birdseed/grain on ground) would tend to suggest Mycena to me as a first guess. But I don't know of any Mycenas that bruise blue.

Watch for them and let us know if you find any. It'll be interesting to find out what they were.

Happy mushrooming!

As far as Mycena goes, I can't see the gills through the cap, or gill striations...
Like I said, they have caps that are orange caramel, and resemble cubensis caps...
Mycena are small delicate shrooms that have vertical lines on the caps right?
Thanx for the links BTW!
I looked at the pics...2nd pic of the gyms on there sides, looks like the ones except the caps I found were alot smaller, averaging 5 inches, caps averaging 2-3 inches accross.
They did turn blue though...
Damn I hope I can find some more this summer...
I didn't know about the shroomery at that point,(when I found them) so I din't realy know how to take a detailed description...I know much better now...And spore prints realy do help in IDs...
Thanx for all the help.

mycenya are usualy small and delicate, but aren't always striate. also, species wich tend to be striate areften not while dry.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
