Pennsylvania Hunting
    #1623126 - 06/10/03 08:16 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I plan on going hunting today...I have some friends who have been very succesful in the past...I live in southeast Pennsylvania outside Philadelphia...my backyard is Valley Forge National Park and there are many cow and horse fields...I know I'm looking for Panaeolus subbalteatus, which should be growing now...anyone have any good areas to look for them in my area? any pointers to finding these in my area would be great help

look in compost areas and in areas where the horse manure is mixed with debris and is slightly overgrown and mixed with soil etc. look in areas where it is mixed with hay.

although p. subbalteatus grows much more frequently associated with horse manure, it can grow on cow manure i believe. i would suggest looking much more closely in the horse manure areas.

you are bound to find Panaeolus campanulatus and panaeolus papilionaceus and related species. look online for some pics and descriptions: http://www.mykoweb.com/CAF/species/Panaeolus_papilionaceus.html

I'm in Southeast PA, right out of Philadelphia, right off the blue route.  I'm heading down to a friends barn tonight to check it out.  He says theirs about a 300sq foot horse shit heap, so I'm going to look there.  Wish me luck, I'll post any findings. :laugh:

No luck at all at the shit heap. It turns out they move it and push it around all the time, so their would be no chance for the myceal to network it self enough to produce shrooms, oh well, it was fun messing with the animals.

Hey I have looked at a couple heapes as of late. They also move the poo around. But a lot of poopgets pushed through the cracks and sits behind the binn in the bushes. You should check to see if it has spots like that.

not too sure about that one.
you must understand that there is a temperature thing and a moisture thing involved. if the temps and humidity are proper, and the mycelium is present as a tiny speck... i would venture to say that you could have fruitbodies in a matter of as little as three weeks, possibly less.
hunting the elusive little fiends (not a typo) is all a matter of timing.
with dung lovers, the temp range and "season" are always a little more broad, but the idea is the same. temp/humidity/nutrition/oxygen proper levels initiate pins. pins emerge over many days somewhat simultaneously in flushes.
if you missed the first flush already, the second may not form until temps are in a reasonable range or until there is enough rain. also, the shit must be at least somewhat composted by other organisms before subbs will fruit prolifically. (i'm pretty sure, correct me if i am wrong here.)
all i really wanted to say was, the moving around thing doesn't seem to be an issue to me, unless they move it like every other day or something, which can get pretty difficult, logistically. if they are moving it that much it must be turning into garden compost for somebody who needs alot.....!

on another note, this mushroom is also an option... i would generally say your chances were not so great, but this year was an excellent morel year in the midwest, and i would bet that the habitats cross over a great deal in the lower deciduous forests near rivers. why not? i would if i were out that way. they certainly are rare and potent, wouldn't it be cool to be the guy who found caerulipes in penn?
anyway word.
peas

Obviously if more shit is put on top of the pile of shit, and the shit is pushed around, their will be no mushrooms. If their is a mushroom patch on the ground, and you step right in the middle crushing all that mycelium, their will be no mushrooms growing from that spot. And yes, they have lots of horses, and lots of horse shit, so shit is shoveled on the pile all the time, and it is compressed often.

I live right next to Valley Forge National Park and there are alot of rivers running through the park and it's covered in deicduous forests...around what kind of areas did u find it? also does anyone know if Subbs can be found in other areas besides horse pastures?

Pan. subbs are found in a slenderer form on nitrogen-fertilized lawns occasionally. dont confuse with Panaeolina foenisecii which is similar and also grows on lawns (has a brown spore print).
