A little question re: distribution
    #2791656 - 06/14/04 06:37 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

A mate and I have been out a few times hunting in the Newcastle/Hunter Region. We've checked 2 different pine plantations (one stretched as far as the eye can see!, well it was just huge :> ), lots of woodchip beds around town and in front of shops etc, natural forests along bushwalk tracks (occassionally venturing in to promising areas), a mates farm in cow shit etc. Probably spent around 5 or 6 hours walking and looking.

For all our efforts, we have found a few unidentifiable LBM's (none of them blued, gave them a few hours to do it too). I wish I could go hunting with someone who has been out before so I would know what to look for and to give me hope (it's so annoying not knowing if they exist at all).

All I want to know is if I'm wasting my effort, do they even grow in my region? Or am I too far north? Am I looking in the right areas?

Thanks,
Tim

you're better off looking for cubes and cyans in spring and autumn up that way.

Had another hunt yesterday, walked through another pine forest and checked out a few woodchipped garden beds.

The forest turned up two different species, a large dark orange mushroom that fruited off rotting pine stumps in troops, and a single tiny(2cm cap) bell capped white stemmed fella (bruised yellow, green gills, does that make it a Galerina?). Probably too dry around atm but at least I'm finding SOME mushrooms :smile:
