Aucklandii ??
    #1819391 - 08/16/03 10:40 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ive got a few nagging questions about this species. According to both Guzman and Buchanan, it is almost identical to Ps.zapotecorum (and a spore compatibility test might be interesting), and is reported to grow on 'soils beneath leptospermum and dacrydium trees and in pine plantations.' Of the five specimens listedin Buchanan, three are reported to be growing directly off soils 'below' the leaf litter, whilest two are found attached to rotting woods, or leaf litter and pine needles.
Does this indicate to anyone that this is still a lignious species, or something different? Most woodlovers ive known have been pretty strict in their requirement for some wood debris to colonise and fruit off, but the two seperate people I know in NZ who have found and sourced this mushroom say that the mycelia is usually found in the soil without any attachment to wood.
I was wondering how Zapotecorum was normally found - lignious or otherwise...??

Well, Ps. zapotecorum is suppose to be closely related to Ps. weilii. I can say that I have only ever found one Ps. weilii attched to a piece of rotting wood. The rest I find are growing from lignin rich soils. I have a patch similar to the habitat you described for aucklandii in which I find weilii growing from the soils just beneath the humus/leaf litter in the woods.

I would say aucklandii is more than likely lignicolous. I know Ps. weilii is a lignicolous species, and I never find it growing directly from wood. I wouldn't see why aucklandii couldn't do the same.
