Easter Island finds, help please to ID
    #2753475 - 06/01/04 04:42 PM (18 years, 1 month ago)

Hello,

Yep, Easter Island, the place with the big stone heads.

I was out the other day working on a watercolor painting when I looked down and there they were. Then I looked up and saw cows and horses and a little light when on in my head. So, been out there hunting and reading tons on the net. I'm new to this but am having great fun not only finding these mushrooms but also trying to ID them. What an increadible world right under my nose!

So far I've found in the ballpark of about a dozen different kinds. Here I have posted the three that I find to be of the most intrest.

The first batch. Oh I was hoping these were Coplandias but I think they may be Panelous Antillarum. I have posted 1A and 1B because 1B were clearly whiter than 1A. Otherwise they appear to be identical. There is a little yellow or tan on the top of the caps of 1A. They both have white on the edge of the gills and the gills are then very dark. They were both found in horse manur. It may have been cow dung but I highly doubt it. They both have a black spore print.



Batch number 2 sounds and looks alot like the Gymnopilos Purpuratus but doesn't have a orange spore print. This one has a brown print. The caps are yellow as are the stems. The stems being a bit lighter. The caps start out very round and flatten as they grow. They were also found in horse manur.



Mushroom number 3. I forgot to label the photo with a number. The cap is yellow brown at the top fading to a lighter gray brown with a darker brown ring at the edge. The stem was the same light gray brown down to the base where it grew darker and a bit redish. This color intensified up the stem after it was picked. The dot on the cap is a tiney hole. Perhaps from and insect? The spore print is black.



I hope these descriptions and photos are clear enough for a true Mushroom Jedi to pin down what I've found. Please, if you are not a serious expert leave the guess work alone.

Also, I have confirmation of a "gold cap" that was picked and ingested growing on cow dung. The other confirmed find and ingestion involves ones that were picked inside a volcanoe cone. These did not appear to be growing from anything but the soil at the base of a tree. Blue bruising was reported. I have searched based on both of these 2 histories and have had no success whatsoever. We are entering a very rainy period so things should pick up! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

many thanks in advance.

I'm no expert :wink: , but I don't think those are gyms, they look more like agrocybes to me...  I'll leave someone else to speculate about the ID of the pans, I think pan antillarum is a good guess on the first ones though.

Some Agrocybe species are very edible and can be grown with little ease, especially they can be transplanted back into a natural habitat when the spawn from in vitro growth can be w mixed stump recycling of willows bay alder, cottonwood and ekm.

One such Agrocybe is the Italian mushrom popular in Italy, Agrocybe aegerita, known locally as Pioppino mushrooms.

Here is a foto from Paul Stamets Farm in Shelton.



Many Agrocybe species are edible but not usually recommended.

Also Agrocybe mushrooms get an upturned and wavy cap in age.
