ID for Auckland find please. Is it a sub? Is it a ???
    #2765309 - 06/05/04 03:40 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am new to this game but have been doing lots of research! But unfortunately I've reached the limits of my (poor) knowledge and need some help.

I found this species in what is supposedly a popular spot. It was in a wet area, with lots of mulch. There were a lot of mushrooms growing there. This was the only species that resembled the subs.

Following through the list of descriptors of subs on the site, to me it seems to fit, including scaling with age and the black spores. The difficulty is that the pictures of subs in Auckland show that they can be pretty varied.

The main difference from the pics on the site is that the mushrooms I've found are not showing any blueing. How necessary is this? And are there any species growing in mulch in Auckland that look similar to subs?

I have looked at several sites of NZ mushrooms and haven't managed to see any that look like these (except for the subs - hopefully).

Any help would be appreciated. I've gone out on 4 hunting expeditions now, and would like to be as lucky as everyone else seems to be.

(Can add more pics if requested but have reached today's limit)

Not subs. Pictures don't provide enough detail to take a guess at what it is but I know for a fact that it isn't active. It doesn't bruise blue. Ps. Sub's bruise very blue.

Thanks for the advice. At least I know now. I was told they were probably not active but my blind optimism kept me going.

But damnit! I was hopeful as the shroomery identification page said they only 'occasionally' bruise blue. Very disappointing as everyone else in Auckland seems to be finding them everywhere.

If anyone wants to take pity on a newbie I'd be very appreciative! Any tips/info will be gratefully received. I have tried very hard and done a lot of research. The more I search the more the elusive mushroom evades me... Please PM me if you want to help. :-)
