holy crap, i just found a positive amanita muscaria in sw KS
    #2478102 - 03/27/04 03:29 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

hey all, i live in southwest kansas and because of the recent rains i decided to go out and try to find some shrooms. to tell you the truth i really didnt expect to find anything, but as i was walking around the lake i saw what looked like an amanita muscaria and was like nah, thats not possible, but i decided to go and grab the ID book out of my truck and sure enough, it matched every single description. so i picked it and vacuum sealed it and put it in my campers freezer. now, onto a more serious question. i've heard of many people around my area going out into feilds full of cows after rains and finding mushrooms that would make you trip but i havent found any region specific guides that are free that specificcally focus on kansas. people say magic shrooms dont grow in kansas because it's too dry, but i beg to differ. when it rains here, IT RAINS!!! and is humid as fucking hell for almost a week afterword. so, does anyone have any info on kansas shrooms? specifically ID guides and the like. thnx everyone for yer help.

While it is not impossible, the fact that it is well outside the season for Amanita muscaria makes your statement that you've found one somewhat suspect. If you have some photos worth posting it would be good to see them. In particular we need to see images of the lower part of the stem including the base to verify the species.

As far as books on mushrooms in Kansas, you didn't mention whether they should be oriented towards active species or mushrooms in general. For active species you probably want to stick with any of the standard guides.

For a general guide you ought to check out A Guide to Kansas Mushrooms.

You also might want to check out the Kaw Valley Mycological Society. They are actually from the opposite end of the state from you, but they would probably still be a useful reference.


If you haven't already, check out the Book Store link at the top of the page. Books purchased via that link provide a small kick back to the Shroomery and help keep the place financially stable and running.


Happy mushrooming!
