Subaeruginosa Guide * 52
    #26552041 - 03/23/20 07:59 AM (2 years, 6 months ago)

General Info

Psilocybe subaeruginosa is a saprotrophic mushroom which feeds off ligneous material. It prefers oceanic climate and is present in warm summer temperate climates (Koppen climate types). It requires cool-cold days (not freezing) and ample rain which occur in Australian Autumns and Winters.

Distribution

NSW, VIC, SA, ACT, WA, SE QLD, TAS, NZ

Identifying

Cap: Conical in immaturity (immature specimens called "pins"), convex,  often umbonate. Varies in colour, can be yellow, orange, reddish-brown or brown. Displays hygrophanous fading.
Stem: White and hollow, firm with fibrous texture.
Gills: Cream, tan to dark brown/purple
Spore: Purple, purple-brown.  Rarely chocolate brown .
Bruising: Light to navy blue, pronounced on stem. Cap can have green blotches.


Examples of pins


Examples of bluing.


Example of hygrophanous fading.

Season

April - September
Subs have been found from late-February to mid-October, it's all dependent on conditions. After the temperatures have dropped and decent amounts of rain have fallen, there's a chance of finding them.
Generally i've found the temperature should be roughly in the range of 5-15 degrees Celsius, at least to start initial fruiting and there should be two rain events. That is 15-20mm should fall in Autumn (March onwards). A few days of exposure to this moisture will cause mycelium to "reawaken", than another rain event should occur of at least 10mm which should trigger fruiting. These rain events should be a cold front which generally last 1-3 days.

Habitat

Habitat is quite variable with some definite common factors. The three common types of habitat are:

• Eucalypt Forests (Native forests, typically areas with green under stories and not scrub-land)
• Pine plantations (Favoring areas with greenery, such as grasses and bracken)
• Woody mulches (Woodchips of hardwoods (e.g. eucalyptus) and pine, broken up twigs/branches)

Eucalypt forests: Things to look for within Eucalypt forests are: grasses, bracken ferns, rich soil, fallen branches and bark, these all make for a good habitat. This is because a canopy and understory holds moisture in for longer, limits sun exposure hence dropping the temperature at least a little bit. Eucalypt forests are recommended to search if you are a beginner. Eucalypt subs are generally medium-stout and of medium height, though long grasses can cause tall stems. Grasses in eucalypt forests tend to be rank grasses, long tufts or a patchy matt of short thick grass and even mosses. Such vegetation enhances water retention as well as keeps the soil cooler and provides more shade. In eucalypt woodlands there might be eucalypt trees whose bases are littered with fallen bark, which blankets the area round the tree, this can yield subaeruginosa. Fallen bark also provides better water retention and keeps the soil cool, though it may take longer for rain to penetrate and take some time to colonize. It can be worthwhile noting such areas and checking them in following years. It is also advisable to check the perimeter/outskirts of forests/woodlands. At the outskirts vegetation isnt too thick, and the area is more open which allows for more rain to penetrate the soil/woody debris.


Grassy Eucalyptus forests                                                  Subs in Euc forests

Pine plantations are an interesting choice of habitat for subs as they are an introduced species and fruiting is quite random, high yield or low yield. Subs that grow in pine forests are typically long stemmed and thin. Pine plantations are mono-cultures, though if other plants were there previously and have not been destroyed or some other plants have grown there at a later date, it is preferable.  In my experience, it is a much better sign when there is more biodiversity in a pine plantation rather than merely a blanket of pine needles. The same factors which enhance eucalypt woodlands also enhance pine plantations : rank grasses, bracken fern, any vegetation and fallen branches. Additionally, I think variations in the terrain such as creeks, hills and valleys are also signs indicating a greater chance of success. These all form microclimates which can be conducive to the fruiting of subaeruginosa. They generally promote water retention, shade, cooler soil and increased water runoff. It can be worth to check areas with vegetation such as grasses or fern on the borders of pine plantations.

Woodchips are a condensed form of what subs like to feed on, wood. These habitats can yield the most per m2. The subs which fruit off woodchips are typically shorter, thick-stemmed and arguably the most potent. It can take longer for woodchip patches to fruit, as they are generally in more populace areas, which have milder conditions than hills and forests.  Eucalypt, pine and mixed woodchips (such as a leaf mulch) are all good for subs. Deep laying of woodchips gives more room for growth and aged woodchips are easier to colonize due to nutrients having greater availability. Shade from trees and fences can shield sunlight making an area have more favourable conditions. Ornamental and native shrubbery also provide microclimates such as Lomandra, Agapantha and Hardenbergia. It is advisable to check woodchip patches which at least have the cover of trees and aren't completely exposed to the sun, shrubbery (even weeds and tufts of grasses) are a bonus.

Photography tips

* Choose an appropriate resolution. My camera has limited options, 2048 x 1536 is my favorite. Decent size but not too big.
*Learn to hold the camera still as possible as you are taking the shot.
* Take several photographs, this can compensate for the last point to a degree. Always take multiple shots.
*To add to the last two points take multiple shots from several different angles. Also slightly adjust the angle or distance of the current position. Move back a little bit. Sometimes you just can't get a good shot from a certain distance or angle so a slight adjustment can fix this.
* Pay attention to the display on the camera, it is a good indication of whether the shot is in focus.
*Pick your day, not as essential, but I prefer to go on an overcast day after or before rains. The mushrooms won't be overly reflective and covered in water or excess sunshine causing overexposure. You can't always control this and this is my preference for the perfect shot.

When photographing mushrooms,  use the macro function on your camera, mine has 3 different sized leaves with the largest being the macro. Some will have flowers or something, also play with the white balance and lighting on your camera,  it makes all the difference when taking pictures of white objects. Great suggestions, thank you for taking the time to give back to the community.

No problem, hope it helps.

As a side note if anyone finds the guide useful, likes the information in it etc, could you please upvote it by hitting the plus symbol at the top of the first post?

Update: I changed/added some information in the season section regarding conditions for triggering fruiting.
