South African mushrooms?
    #1628414 - 06/12/03 10:54 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hi,

We're off to South Africa shortly, and if I am right it should be mushroom season over there.

Does anyone know what kind of freaky fungus to hunt for?
We should probably look for Liberty Caps and maybe Cubensis in the fields and some wood lover like Cyanescens in parks and gardens. Does anyone know for sure?

Any info is welcome, maybe there's a SA mushroom hunter on the forum....

peace.

If you are going to South Africa, the shroom season for Psilocybe natalensis which grows in manuered ground but not directly in manure was January when the first collection was discovered..


It is common in Natel and as far as 200 km away from Natel where a 2nd batch was discovered 5 years after the original discovery by Gartz and Smith. This second collection was found in March, 5 yers after the original collection. Thus the season was determined as from January through May.


Not sure whent he rainy season is but those are the times the shrooms were gathered. No other species have yet been recorded from Soouth Africa since the P. natalensis shrooms.

What about P. cubensis?
