Australian Finds- Non PA mushroom pics
    #2749159 - 05/31/04 06:49 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone... how is u all?
Its great to see so many people finding so many lovely looking subs...  :smile:

I couldn't find a forum for non-active shroom hunting, but have a shit load of pics of weird looking non-active shrooms... I found them in victoria (silvan) so i thort i'd post 'em here...

Right first off, i've got a few pics of a deep redish/merone(sp?) shroom that had some weird jizz stuff under the cap where the gills are supposed to be.... it also had a realy dimply texture to the stem, something i've never seen before on a mushroom...
 
That's some pretty amazing/wack shit right there...
Next I've got some pics of a purple coloured mushroom that i've seen heaps in past years...


Some Yellow spongey, nubby mushrooms...  the stems were really nubby, with one looking as though it had another mushroom (pin) growing out of it...
 
Some pointy sombrero shaped mushrooms...



And then also some mushrooms that i think possibly could be yr household eatable type (button or portobello???)

 


Sure is a pity that out of all the msuhies i did find today, none of them were were what i was looking for...  oh well... was a good day all the same.... :smile:

I moved your thread and made it it's own post. The purpose of the AU/NZ thread is to post about your findings of active mushrooms.

The first pic you say may be a portabello is a yellowstainer...dont eat them unless you like vomiting and liquid shits.
the yellow bruising can be seen around the edge of the cap.

The purple shroom may be either a Russula or a Cortinarius mushroom.

Re Mr Hanky and the Dr/ yellow-stainers, I was given the same advice when I started looking around for non-PA edibles in Melbourne (and have observed it religiously), and have since noticed you can even smell the difference between the yellow stainers and non, if you peel the cap a bit/ break a bit of flesh... the light coloured gills seem to be the dead give-away 'from a distance' though... what puzzles me is that I often find the non yellow staining/ dark gilled edibles (delicious in fact), very close to the light-gilled-yellow stainers, they sometimes appear to be derived from the same original mycelia stock... are they different species, or 'chemical/ genetic' variants of the same ?

that jizzy one could be a putrid Boletellus obscurecoccineus

hey suboriginal, i usually find yellow stainers (Agaricus xanthoderma) under shrubs, and other edible agarics usually in open grass.
they do smell quite noxious, you can also tell them apart by the shape of the cap because the sides of young yellowstainers cap stay very parallel, shaped kind of like a barrel.

Melbourne finds May 2004 [Re: Dr_Octanaught]
    #2754292 - 06/01/04 08:35 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Here's some 'non-PA' shroom pics that I have on the server that were taken in parks within about 10K's of Melbourne (Australia) by me or my mate in May 2004. I'll only suggest possible species for a couple, based on informed guesses kindly supplied by gurus here...
PS. I especially liked the 'salad onion coloured' shrooms (#4) btw Dr Octo, shame you stamp your logo big and bold on every shot! (it kinda' ruins them a bit IMHO, but each to their own...)

This wierd red 'shroom' (1st 2 pics) may be Piptoporus (/Polyporus) australiensis, or fistulina hepatica... was about the size of a small fist, growing from a wooden step in well treed parklands.





Next pic probably Strophoria aurantiaca... everywhere in Melbourne at the moment (May/ June 2004)! Seem to thrive in pretty dry conditions...


______________________________________________________












_____________________________________________________

These next three are 'shaggy manes'... tallest was about 13cm... striking looking shrooms !

More to come as uploads allow, see below...

Yellow-stainers shaped like a barrell - :smile: Something like that like a squarish shape rather than perfectly round - a rectangle with round edges :smile:
We get lots of purple russulas in melbourne under pine trees - and that bolete slimer is gross...

Here's some pics of non actives from my latest little adventures in a couple of new locations (all within 10km of Melbourne city centre)

Location 1







Location 2







I'm not confident enough to supply informed guesses at most shroom species... but I know my Australian fauna !! The frog in this pic is a 'Pobblebonk' or banjo frog (Limnodynastes dumerilii)... A COOL FROG! Was good to find him in suburbia near the city centre, indicates our waterways are not too polluted...

{Subsequent edit, fezza' kindly informs me that the shroom in this shot is probably a Macrolepiota sp.}

More Melbourne Shrooms... [Re: Dr_Octanaught]
    #2777056 - 06/09/04 06:30 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

A few more shrooms snapped in Melbourne recently... and a quick question... if I shift the pics I have on the server into new folders, will they still 'work' in old posts, or will I have to re-reference them in the text of the old posts they appear in... I notice the code has no mention of the folder they're in... if anyone knows, please advise ? {edit... pics still work in old posts after being moved to a new folder... YAY}

Cheers!  :cool:
