More than one species
    #2644806 - 05/06/04 11:42 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have found a cowpie with what appears to be Inky Cap, P. Cubensis and two species of Conocybe. The dung was located in grass that stood about a foot tall in a small grove of trees in McClain County, Oklahoma. I have some questions that you might help me with.

Is it common to find more than one species growing on the same pile of dung? What species of Conocybe's are common to Oklahoma? Can this multi species colonization make it unsafe to use the P. Cubensis?

I have brought the dung home to keep it in a more controlled environment so I can better identify what I have. If my questions bring up more questions about the samples I have I will be able to provide more details and some photos in the next couple of days as the mushrooms mature and fruit again. Thanks!

Yes it is common to find multiple species in a single habitat. As long as you do not confuse a poisonous mushroom with a non-poisonous mushroom there should be no problem.

Mycelium of two different species of mushrooms will not interact, they are colonizing different fractions of the same substrate. I have never heard of a poisonous mushroom secreting toxins that are taken up by another mushroom growing next to it.

I think the majority of warnings is against possible mix up of species and ingesting something toxic.

Some mushrooms casue allergic reactions to some people, when grown on certain substrates( aromatic woods and certain species of mushrooms).
