Urban yeild, a whole lotta nothin
    #14387864 - 05/02/11 12:41 PM (10 years, 13 days ago)

Am I doing something wrong, looking in the wrong places, the wrong time? In all the hunting I've done in the past two months the only things I've found are useless to me. I'm enjoying myself, but still I want to have found more than the same three species every time I come back. I've been searching everyday for hours at a time mostly looking for Pan Subbs.
Here's my findings today.







I swear, these are the only things that grow in town. There's a nasty river called the Grand River, should I go check by there?

I would say go for it. Check near the river in the woods if there are any. Check fallen dead trees and right along the riverbank. Look everywhere!

if you are in michigan i imagine you are way too early unless it has been warmer than usual for starters
otherwise all you can really do is look all the time and keep looking
also coprinellus, agrocybes and psathyrella are usually early fruiters compared to pan. cincts. that like the ground to warm up a bit more from what i've seen
also looks like you are not looking in the right places?
horse dung/stable shavings dumps/compost heaps/newly sodded lawns/etc.
good luck :thumbup:

:sunny:

Oh, Panaeolus like warmth? I always thought they were an early spring mushroom. Okay. I'm looking in the right places for sure, I live right next to a yuppie community with really fresh sodded lawns.

The clustered ones look like Psathyrella multipedata.

I'm not so sure about that one. I might be wrong, but they seem more likely to be Coprinellus micaceus, seeing how I spread spores in that area and they have dark brown gills and brown caps.
Also, aren't psathyrella multipedata rare?

Probably wrong time of the year if you're in Michigan...

Look at what mushrooms fruit in the spring, them what are their habitat.. Then go look for them

Though, aimless wandering is fun... Sort of my style!

Did they have sort of a goldish glitter on the caps, because I can't see it in those pictures. If so, then yes, I agree on C. micaceus.

I've never seen any golden glitter on these mushrooms before. Because you mention this, I'm taking a spore print of one right now. I looked at the gills, and they turn white towards the center.

You could hunt for years and not find an active mushroom, or you may find some today.  I'll never understand why people think that it's just as easy as going to the park down the street expecting to find actives.  Active species are generally less common than non actives, especially in Michigan which is a crappy place to hunt actives anyway.

Not directing that solely at you OP, just saying that you can't expect that you are going to find them just because you have been hunting a couple months.

Good luck and welcome to the shroomery.
