Finding Fungi in Your Own Backyard!
    #1635205 - 06/15/03 04:15 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Going to the woods to hunt for mushrooms can be an exciting adventure, but sometimes the amount of species you find can be a little overbearing when it comes to identifying them all.  I love going hunting in my own yard because it is a veritable fungi farm!  :smile:  Every two weeks or so, something new will be sprouting up for me to find and identify!  Other than being fun for me, it's really good practice for ID'ing, too.

I just had to make a post about this because I think the amount of mushroom species that can be found in our own backyards is really incredible! :laugh:

In the past two summers, with a very small amount of effort and skill, I have found and identified 10 different species growing right in my own lawn, or from mulch beds in my yard.  The species I've found thus far are:

Agrocybe dura
Agrocybe praecox
Conocybe lactea
Coprinus micaceous
Coprinus plicatilis
Marasmius oreades
Panaeolus foenesecii
Psathyrella condolleana
Psathyrella velutina
Stropharia rugosoannulata


(I'm pretty sure that's it...)

I'm interested to know how many and what species some of the other hunters here have found in their own yards.  Let's see who's got the best wild fungi farm goin' on outside their house! :smile:

If you haven't yet, go out and explore your own backyard!  Odds are that you will find some fungi!

Peace,

RebelSteve

P.S.  Yes, I am a big nerd! ... And I'm damn proud of it, too!  :tongue: :grin:

Namaste.

florida yards are just as good as forests. since most florida neighborhoods are former forests and a lot of the live oak and other trees still exist, mycorrhizal relationships are ongoing. therefore, many 'forest' mushrooms are found in neighborhoods, such as boletaceaes on lawns next to trees and amanitas in your backyard. at the same time, you are likely to find lawn and residential mushrooms in the same area. so its like a double WHAMMY! WOPOHOHOHHO!

i have identified about 5 mushrooms growing on my lawns and not identified at least 20 species or more because of lack of time or i simply couldnt. florida species are tough.

there have only been a few times when i have taken a stroll around my house carefully scoping the ground without finding at least one or two mushrooms. so go outside for a few minutes and look.
