Good Discussions and good pictures are preferable*


G'day fellow Shroomites welcome to the 2019 nsw thread, Hope there is a constant flow of posts and pictures.


3-4 months left of summer season mushrooms are going up near the Mid North Coast so after a storm go have a geez ay!

P. Cubensis (Gold Tops/Common laughing :mushroom2:)

Pan Cyans (Blue Meanies)


Then when they stop up there the cold season species start.

Psilocybe subaeruginosa (Subz)
:coolcat:

Peace out and Good hunting!

:greatjob:Good to see some summer actives coming up. Nice finds.
I'm excited to head up there in winter to search for the less common species. P.tasmaniana, P.papuana etc. Missing Heyowanas posts.

We have P. alutacea and likely P. papuana, which I just need to verify via DNA. There is definitely another active Psilocybe in Victoria. I have the specimens.

Add to the list P.semilanceata for Victoria along with active Gyms and possibly Panaeolus cinctulus. I guess P.tasmania may also turn up in Victoria.

NSW is very special having both tropical and temperate species. I'm sure there are more species to be discovered here. The pristine rainforests between Brisbane and Wollongong contain a huge diversity of fungi. Many species I have not been able to ID with my field guides.

Thanks guys. Still don't have a computer.Gives me a lot more time to actually hunt.

They started logging the state forest next door. This will create ideal habitat for P.papuana etc in a few years.

Thanks Bagels. There are much better photographers than me here. I'm enjoying not having a computer. I just need to train some shroomerites in fieldwork. I wish. Then they can get out there and photograph new species. I'm sure I've just scratched the surface species wise.

Not to mention that other P. semilanceata type Psilocybe I found last season, which Alan suggested is a new species. I believe we could also get P. cubensis along the northern border potentially.

Probably 6 to 7 species of Psilocybe in VIC, but this thread is about NSW! XD

Best of luck, open eyes, open mind. Happy hunting! :smile:

Letting the NSW crew in on what's occurring in VIC will likely lead to new finds there.


It's good to see the old faces crawling out of the woodwork. Happy mushrooming!

Psilocybe Subaeruginosa is a species which likes cold conditions. The season could begin in March or as late as May. I think the el nino southern oscillation index affects the timing of its appearance and its abundance but I havn't tested this hypothesis yet.

Generally only fruit during the colder winter months. Sub season is still a few months away.

As someone who has been contemplating picking again this year, Papuana looks interesting! Some mountainous areas may get early fruiting this year with the cold weather we've been having in the snowies lately...

I think P.papuana needs a couple of good rainfalls to start fruiting. Then they fruit from Dec-July here at 30 degrees S. Season doesnt seem as important as rainfall.

However they fruit under cover of trees and logs until April. From then on with the cooler conditions and less sun intensity they'll fruit out in the open.

Check clay soil where water can sit in puddles for a while after rain.

Hello all!
New face to these boards and hopefully I will have some great pics to share with you this season. I've recently migrated from the ACT to NSW South Coast and this will be my first year picking this region
The next 7 days look like low 20's and a nice drop of rain for my area - any advice on what types of areas I should start my hunting??

G'Day everyone.
Another new face here, this will be my first year properly picking, a few years back I came across a field full of little blueys. Didn't consume any because I was aware of the risks and had little knowledge but it peaked my interest and I've been researching ever since.
Finally some rain in the forecast this week in the Newy area and I'm keen to see what the season brings us all!
Happy hunting! :mushroom2:

Should be plenty of meanies - Panaeolus cyanescens around in cow paddocks up and down the coast if we get a good rainfall event. Then in the weeks to come goldtops - Psilocybe cubensis should also start fruiting as well. Just need that rain.

Welcome to shroomery guys. Hope you have a great season.

Welcome to the shroomery, you can create your own thread and we will be happy to help you identify your observations.

All you have to do is post clear up close pictures of the cap, gills/pores and stipe (stem), an in situ photo is also helpful.

There seems to be scarce information on P. Papuana. The only observations I could find were for Coffs Harbour area.

Can anybody comment on the distribution? Can it be widely found in NSW or is it limited to a few particular areas?

EDIT: Ok, so there is this thread.

Still happy to hear any extra info.

Finds for Coffs Harbour, Sydney and Wollongong. I've heard of a possible find in Victoria. They may also occur in the Grampians there. Perhaps they're widespread through the dividing range. If you go back a few years P.alutacea were unknown to most mushroom hunters yet they're common through the Adelaide hills and Victoria with more confirmed finds as interest builds.

Here P.papuana has an affinity for log dumps, bulldozed mounds, bandicoot digs and areas where sawdust has been lying around. Runoffs and ditches in these areas are the places to look.
Same goes for the undescribed species I wrongly called light coloured P.papuana.

Best of luck this year searching for those two species. P.papuana has a very intense effect. The other species is more relaxed and cruisey. Pronounced body effect as well. Unlike papuana which is all in the head.

For bobwastaken and any other aficionados. New species as DNA sequenced by Alan Rockefeller.
Mushroom observer 268682, 271407 & 271568.
This species prefers a more open habitat to P.papuana in Summer.

In autumn and winter both species can be found side by side.

Here is a list of distinct species I have found in NSW. Date when first found and where.

P.subaeruginosa -1981 Beecroft
P.cyanescens - 1981-1988 Beecroft. Highway built destroying habitat.
Pan.cyanescens - 1981 near Gloucester
Pan.cinctulus - 1981 near Gloucester.
P.cubensis - 1982 near Gloucester.
P.pelliculosa - 1998 - 2003 Hampton. Pine forest clear felled.
P.tasmaniana - 2009 Dalmorton.
P.semilanceata - 2009 Dalmorton.
P.alutacea - 2016 W of Coffs Harbour.
P.papuana - 2016 W of Coffs Harbour.
P.undescribed 2016 W of Coffs Harbour.

Perhaps widespread for what little I know.

Good point. Better edit it. Dates are on mushroom observer if you care to know when.

Thank you very much. My eyesight is really bad. Trying to do it on this mobile phone. Blah. Think I'll sign off for a while. I'm a bit too serious about a hobby that's meant to be fun.
Hope everyone finds a new species to add to their list this year.

Best research is done out there with mother nature. Mushrooms will find you. Keep an open mind and dont listen to those who say you cant find this here but only there.

I think its ignorance that makes people want to stay in that narrow minded state. I'm a strong advocate for eating mushrooms to let them show you the way. What way is that? The way to where other mushrooms grow. I have found them to be the best advisers to tune me into nature. They help me get feelings and hunches about where to look for them.

So throw all the research away because most of it is out of date anyway. Get out there and get tuned in to a wonderful world full of mystery and a multitude of different species to find.

Then get them ID on this forum!

Speaking of showing the way it's the long term effects on my consciousness I'm talking about. Sure the trip can be interesting. Often bizzare in higher doses. That's not where it's at for me.

Having said that the first time I took mushrooms this familiar feeling flooded my body. I've done this before was the overpowering sensation I felt on a body and mind level.
Each time after that first time its the same.

However my interest is in the aftermath of the trip. How I feel about nature, shadows, dreams etc is like a long lost world opening up for me.

That's when I do my research on an intuitive rather than an intellectual level.

Hello all!
New face to these boards and hopefully I will have some great pics to share with you this season. I've recently migrated from the ACT to NSW South Coast and this will be my first year picking this region
The next 7 days look like low 20's and a nice drop of rain for my area - any advice on what types of areas I should start my hunting??




1. you may wanna wait another month..
2. pine forests or low laying garden areas.

Heyowana said:
Should be plenty of meanies - Panaeolus cyanescens around in cow paddocks up and down the coast if we get a good rainfall event. Then in the weeks to come goldtops - Psilocybe cubensis should also start fruiting as well. Just need that rain.
Welcome to shroomery guys. Hope you have a great season.




The rain starts now, just hope Cyclone Oma doesnt go overkill n ruin my spot.
hopefully going up to the MNC in a week.

I know it says no ID requests and I'm sorry, but I'm new and you guys seem to be the best people I could possibly get a little information off. This area has been known to grow blue meanies and I'm sure these are but still too small. Thoughts?
Do you think if I go back in a day or two they will have grown. Cheers guys.
Disregard this found out what they are

Hi all, here in Sydney it has been raining with a temperature around 22C. Do you think it will time to go for a wonder?  Which varieties should I look for? I am familiar only with the P. Serbica back in Europe. Thanks in advance

Still too early for woodlovers in Sydney. Give it two more months for P.subaeruginosa.

Panaeolus cyanescens check cow paddocks in rural areas near Sydney.

Panaeolus cinctulus you could try grassy parks in the Sydney area. Look in the wettest areas in lawns, parks etc.

More exotic species like P.alutacea horse paddocks. Checking horse dung in shaded areas. They are pretty similar to Deconica coprophila which isnt active but grows on horse dung as well.

P.papuana you could look for on clay embankments or where any sawing has been done of trees for landscaping purposes. Hardwood sawdust preferably that's been weathered for a season or two.

Hope you find mushroom hunting here fun.

I should say that picking mushrooms in cow paddocks anywhere near Sydney can be a nightmare.
When I used to pick Panaeolus cyanescens out Wisemana Ferry St Albans area I always had to be keeping a watchful eye for farmers. They didnt want strangers in their cow paddocks.
I'm sure it was the same for P.cubensis hunters out Warragamba Nepean area.
Sydney is just too populared to carry out those activities safely.

A friend from USA sent me a favourable report for P.alutacea grown from spores I sent him.

What's the concensus of opinion regarding potency of P.alutacea in SA?

He thought maybe the sunlight at 30 degrees S where I am might be degrading their potency.

I tend to agree. The P.subaeruginosa up here arent near as potent as the ones in Sydney.

On the other side of the coin P.papuana and P.undescribed are as potent as anything weight for weight.

I'd like to get my P.tasmaniana patch working again. Each year they start fruiting first week in March.
Last year they hardly fruited at all with the dry weather.

Think I'll get some bags of horse manure and spread it around there again. Havent done it for a couple of years so it may be worthwhile.

Thought I should share these if people are out looking.

Suspected Psilocybe papuana(waiting for DNA to confirm). Found on 8th December 2018 in Gippsland, Victoria.

Wow! Thanks for sharing this find! Certainly look like P.papuana. Were there more specimens in the area and what was the altitude?

I don't know of anyone else having tried P.alutacea in SA. Wild specimens are not weak in potency but I will give P.subaeruginosa the nod.
Cultivated SA specimens are another beast altogether. They grow several times larger than those in the wild and will bruise much more readily. I would rate indoor specimens alongside P.subaeruginosa for potency. .5g dried starts things off nicely.

100-200m above sea level. No other specimens. Were founds after a couple days of rain. Then it got hot after that which would've prevented anymore from coming up.

Hey everyone, this will be my first season of foraging I'm from South East Victoria. I know that subs grow here, I've heard that they start popping up in April to May. Just wondering if anyone else from around here knows what else grows and what time they pop up. Cheers guys :smile:

Thanks for the P.alutacea feedback bobwastaken.

Azza yeah pm me sometime. It's too dry here ATM but it would be nice to catch up with you sometime.

Karode13 they look promising. Hard to tell via my mobile.
However the pale almost Mycena looking gills look right. Cap looks dry as well so I'm really interested to be kept up to date on this find.

Hello everyone!

Last Autumn was my first hunting season, I had the time of my life researching, hunting for and experimenting with Psilocybe subaeruginosa
I'm really excited to get back out there soon, but I'm intrigued by these more rarer actives you guys are finding, they look wicked!

I had a dream where I found a patch of giant subs growing in a hollowed out, moist old tree, I can't wait.

Good luck everyone!

Just went for a hunt in the central coast and could see Antilarium's fairly often. Could only search a couple of fields, it's hard to find private patches this far South!

Also spotted a couple of death caps..

It was moist but I don't know, maybe I just didn't check enough paddocks.

Anyway keep hunting it's fun as hell :smile:

Hi risk breaker. P.papuana are wicked. Both for looks and effect.

Samboske it might be getting a bit cold for Pan.cyans on the central coast. If we get some follow up rain there could be some P.cubensis about in the right cow paddocks.

Good luck and fingers crossed for a bit or rather a lot more rain in the weeks ahead.

Hi Guys,

I'm also new face!

I've curious of trying mushroom for long time. Now, I think I'm mentally ready to give it a try!
living in Sydney around Como Suburb. I had a walk into a park last weekend after a full week of rain but it's still so dry to see any. I don't have experience on this. Please please let me know if you're around this area and going on the short mushroom trip! I'd love to accompany!

Thank you!

Welcome to the shroomery,  you can't ask that here, it's against the rules.

However,  you live in an area where you can find what you're looking for,  research psilocybe cubensis, psilocybe aeruginosa, Psilocybe weraroa, etc.

When you find what you think you are looking for, post clear close up pictures of the cap, gills/pores and stipe,  in situ photos are helpful. We will do our best to help you identify your mushrooms


--------------------
DISCLAIMER: I study the macro/micro taxonomy of mushrooms, but I can make mistakes, I'm human, not to mention identification from pictures is difficult. If you want to eat it, varify all identifications of non actives before doing so, it's up to you to be sure we are right.

Dreaming of finding mushrooms is Cryptic, As IME goes with dreaming of picking mushrooms; within a few days of the dream or that day I find heaps!

Dreaming intuition/ Vision.

Slow-moving thunderstorms delivered the heaviest rain in two years to parts of northeast NSW during the last week.

A coastal trough moving over land caused heavy rain and storms in the state's northeast during Thursday night and Friday morning.

Lismore Airport received 63mm of rain between 5:30pm on Thursday and 9am Friday, which was its highest daily total since October last year.

Further north, a rain gauge at Doon Doon registered 170mm during the 24 hours to 9am on Friday, which was its heaviest rain in two years.

Thunderstorms also brought 10-30mm of rain to parts of the Northern Tablelands and North West Slopes and Plains districts on Thursday afternoon and evening.

Inverell received 32mm during one intense storm just before 4pm on Thursday, with 18mm falling in just 10 minutes.

Hey guys, new face here. Curious what everyones picking this time of year, especially with the amount of rainfall we just had in NSW.

Been doing my research and it seems cubensis is pretty sought after this time of year but i'm not too sure about asking farmers if I can look in their cow's feaces.
Also thinking it's probably too early for subaeruginosa unless I got really lucky.
Having any luck with your picks lads?

Found about 40 P.undescribed growing in a ditch near a log. Same area found two bunches o P.papuana. About 20 specimens under leaves near the same log.

That was after the last lot of rain in March. Dried out again but this little bit of light rain now should encourage fruiting in a couple of days I hope.

Assume you're inland more than I am considering only getting light rain. We had 90mm in some areas in the span of an hour. Think it's just about either killed or washed away any type of fungus locally. Reassuring to know that you're finding species though, i'll be spending tomorrow on the hunt in a few areas tomorrow. Thanks

That's the kind of rain I need for my patch of P.tasmaniana to start fruiting again. So it depends on the species. Most Psilocybe species love those heavy downpours to start the season off.

In FNQld the P.semilanceata needed a monsoonal trough dropping at least six inches of rain in one go to get them fruiting. Same when I found
them  in this state.
An east coast low dropped about a foot of rain over five days. It was very interesting at the time because I found P.tasmaniana and P.semilanceata in the same area after that rain event.

I could compare their morphological differences. At the time back in 2009 I was calling both species liberty cap allies. Light species was P.semilanceata and dark species was P.tasmaniana.

Great to hear you're finding actives Heyowana:smile: I just arrived in NSW late last night. Haven't stretched the legs yet. I spotted this sub on the side of a logging track while driving out of camp. Bloody excited to get out there.

Nice one. I take it you are at a high elevation? Way too warm here to get subaeruginosa yet.

Heyowana, you live in a real paradise for mushroom hunting. Just one national park makes up the entire Mt Lofty ranges of SA and there's so many of them. Expansive to say the least.

I'm finding the subs at 1400m elevation.

Pretty confident I've run into some P.papuana today. Thanks again for your helpful threads on Identifying the species and likely habitat.

Here's some pics.

You should be able to do well around Wollongong. Now's probably a good time to be looking given all the rain that's been around. Apparently P. Cubensis can be found in your parts. Know of any cow paddocks/dairy farms not too far away you could explore?

Thanks all for the compliments. NSW is very photogenic:awesomenod: I have some more to share from another great day hiking through the high country.

It didn't take too long to find some P.subaeruginosa. Not out in great numbers but by the sound of it it's still early in the season.





Habitat




After ogling the subs for a while it was time to search for my new favourite species. Ofcourse P.papuana:biggrin::mushroom2:. I found an old overgrown track which looked the right habitat.



I soon started to find the odd specimens growing along this track until I got to a log dump.





I spotted dense clusters of 10-50 mushrooms growing from the old piles. All P.papuana!:eek: I was so amazed having no idea they could grow like this.









and a cluster of extremely frilly P.papuana





One thing I won't miss is the number of leeches. Back home I'd take off my socks and be surprised to find a leech. In NSW it's like emptying canned spaghetti.



Walking back along a red clay trail I came across some gold coloured specimens which I'm unsure about. My guess is a phenotype of P.papuana. Would love your opinion Heyowana.

Bobwastaken, I've been looking forward to seeing what you find this year, beautiful shots as expected. 2nd from the bottom looks like P. Papuana to me.

Heyowana, what would it take for you to send me a few specimens of the undescribed specimens for study or some dried gill fragments?

DISCLAIMER: I study the macro/micro taxonomy of mushrooms, but I can make mistakes, I'm human, not to mention identification from pictures is difficult. If you want to eat it, varify all identifications of non actives before doing so, it's up to you to be sure we are right.

Thanks for sharing those wonderful P.papuana pics bobwastaken. You could blow a lot of minds with all those specimens. Just wonderful. I never find them that thick at my place.

Any idea of your elevation where the clusters of P.papuana are growing? The yellow specimens are dead ringers for P.undescribed. I'd say 99% chance that's what they are.

Next time Alan Rockefeller is in Mexico if he could DNA the holotype for P.papuana it would be great. I'm thinking what we are calling P.papuana is an Australian species maybe similar to P.papuana. That would explain why they grow so thick down in the cold country.

They sure fit the description. They get pretty big though.

Sure Doc. Just PM me an address and I'll post you off some specimens on Thursday.

More amazing stuff. Makes me want to get out at the earliest opportunity. In which months does P. Papuana typically fruit? Does it vary much from when subs fruit?

DNA  sequencing of P.undescribed and P.papuana showed that they werent similar.

From a mushroom eaters perspective as well. So I dont know if you want to test this out Bob. P.undescribed has a mushroomy taste. Fairly mild. Easy to eat. P.papuana has a metallic tangy taste that is quite bitter on the aftertaste.

So if you do a taste test on those yellow specimens it might help you know if they are different to the P.papuana you are finding.

Alan Rockefeller had this to say about the two samples I sent him of P.papuana and P.undescribed.
'The two are very different. One is really close to P.keralensis from China and India,and the other is closest to Psilocybe caerulescens/mexicana, but still not that close.' Interesting when I googled P.keralensis. Problem is I don't know which DNA sequence goes with what.
Unfortunately I'm not sure which is which!

I cant get over the resemblance of bobwastaken's bunches of P.papuana to P.caerulescens.

Maybe our P.papuana is like a caerulescens mushroom of hardwood forests, log piles and logging activities. They certainly grow well down south. Wish I could find them in that quantity.

Great photography man.
@ Heyowanna;  Gonna do a few kms this  week on foot  checking out different trails and hope for the best for p.pap's and pass time till these cold fronts hit.

I have found them from Dec-July. Rainfall is more important than time of year.

Summer papuana will be more under cover. So more difficult to find.

Sub hunters have found them in April at the Blue mountains and Woollongong. Cheeky pup's finds also in April were closer to Sydney I think. I have noticed at 30 degrees S P.papuana is easier to find in April because they arent hiding in the shadows as much.

Where bobwastaken is finding them they are in the open now in March. Sunlight down there is a lot less intense than here.

Hope you bump into some papuana Azza. We need more people looking for these beauties. It would be a blast to see papuana pics from all over nsw and vic each year on the shroomery.
Interesting colour contrast from subaeruginosa as well.

Thanks a lot Heyowana. Given all the rain recently seems like a trip up to the Blue Mountains is warranted.

Look on the south side of hills with a bit of cover out the Blue mountains and Oberon.

Temps would be low enough now to get subaeruginosa out Oberon way.

Before they logged my favourite spot at Hampton I could find subaeruginosa in late Feb.
Just need those cold microclimates. With a bit of cover this time of the year.Around blackberries and bracken fern.

G'day fellas please help me out, I'm just starting, read some previous years threads and tried some ID'ng. With all this rain we've had I'm excited to try my hand in the field but is it too late in the season for summer varieties (Cubes and Cyans)? Should I focus on Subs or is it too early for them? With the rough dates and temperature ranges I have as well as the poor recent thread activity I feel like we might be in a bit of an awkward transition waiting for the winter crops. Can I get any experienced opinion? I was thinking of riding up to around Oberon Forest, Blue Mountains but would like some advice.

P.cubensis on the coast. In cow paddocks along creeks  are a possibility until easter. Further north you go the longer the season for cubensis.

Panaeolus cyanescens I think you'd be lucky now as its getting too cold.

Psilocybe subaeruginosa at the locations you mentioned. Yes.

This time of the year even in the mountains west of Sydney you'll need to look in the coldest areas. When you find a location on the south side of a hill walk down it feeling for cold pockets of air. It will feel a bit colder and damper in these places.

Look for mycelium growing on sticks, under bark, on logs etc. It will be whitish stringlike in appearance. If you cant see any obvious signs of mycelium check shadier wetter places. You'll need to look around bracken fern or some kind of ground cover.

April the temps go way down out there and you'll find subaeruginosa fruiting out in the open if its wet enough. So I agree that its a transitional time now.

I'd look for subaeruginosa though. You don't have to worry about farmers. There is more room out the mountains to walk around. If you don't succeed its still experience towards the goal of being a sub hunter.

Thanks Heyo that really helped. I think I'll wait till the last of these storms finish before riding up to Ingar campground, investigating the Queen Victoria, Ingar and Bedford Creeks as I cross them as I'm not to keen to risk cowpatting for P.Cubes. Otherwise I'll wait for some more rain and lower temps come autumn as you said. Thanks again.

Just went for a spin to kiama, to some cow paddocks/dairy farms. Didn't have too much luck on finding any cyans but was some good exercise. Just interested if not finding any was due to the drop of showers from the past day or two? Or are they just out of season?
