I found this gyms allready drying up, there were more but i didn't pick all of them. I found this huge specimen you can see in the pics, it measured 31 cms of cap diameter and it was 40 cm tall, i didn't wheight it though, just compare it in size with the two other medium sized specimens.

I found about 8 small to medium sized Gymnopilus Spectabilis specimens two days ago, semi-dried up from no rain, in St. Augustine, Florida at a state park. 

Lots of rain last night, and a passing shower today... gonna go out tonight to my secret spots... haven't been to in forever.

:blush:)

High,

Phoshaman, Gymnopilus spectabilis, i do not believe is at all common in Florida.. spectabilis has never been recorded to grow here.

I too thought that i had found a Floridian spectabilis, until Mr_Mushrooms sent me a copy of "North American Species of Gymnopilus". After flipping through that book, i realized that Gymno's are not quite as easy to identify..

I was hoping for Mr_Mushrooms to ring in here, to take a stab at i.d.ing the mushrooms in this topic post,

In the Gymno paper that he sent me, i looked through all of the 100+ species and spectabilis i think has the largest pileus (cap) of them all,

Nice find, but i would not bioassay those specimens in particular..

Keep shroomin,
GG

be sure to get a good id. people always see pictures of actives and think "i see those all the time", but are sometimes mistaken. the key features of these are the size, color, and spore color. combined with the often dense fruiting habbits, substrate, taste and occasional green hues at spots where the stipes grow up against one another, it is reasonably distinctive, but be careful.

Teke the advice of concretefeet.

I have shown pictures of deadly poiisonous Galerina autumnalis shrooms to people here in the PNW and they hae told me they ate them before and had a great high. Of ocurse I would never ewat any shrooms they pick but many say I see themm allt he time.

Be alert people.


As they say there are bold mu7shrooms and there are old bold mushrooms or soemthing to that effect.

i wouldn't even think of eating any mushroom, unless i absolutely knew what it was. i have a friend that has found and eaten gyms in the area i roam. i have looked for them there, but never really knew what they looked like.
