Forks area hunt
    #3193979 - 09/29/04 02:18 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've been finding some awfully intriguing mushrooms while hunting for boletus edulis...

All of the pictured mushrooms were found in the same section of 25 - 30 year old reprod, within a half mile of the ocean, at sea level in thick pine straw....or whatever the hell kind of tree is making that thick layer of needles, hemlock would be my first guess. The whole are had been burned after it was clearcut so there is kind of a thick black matted earth under the needles. I thionk it shows up pretty good in the pics.

To my rookie eye these appear to be amanita muscaria, since it seems like an id better left to experts I just leave them be and take their pictures...




These three guys were growing in what appeared to be a chunk of rotting old cedar knot...


More amanitas? Is pictorial evidence enough for an id?




This last guy is my favorite only because I've yet to see anything like it...this one is a little blurry.....perhaps it looks better in the second pic where I also tried to inlude a good habitat shot...





Next time out I'll have a quarter or something for scale.

Since going on this hunt a few days ago I've also found a few liberty caps here and there in my buddy's pasture, still none in mine though ding dangit.

no you didn't do anything wrong :smile:

nice pics, the red ones appear to be Amanita muscaria.  The lower one also looks like it could be an amanita, did it have a volva at the base of the stem?  I can't tell in the pics.

here's a key to the local amanitas though, for future reference: http://www.svims.ca/council/Amanit.htm

...something to look for next time I guess.

I have a vague recollection of where I found it, maybe I can give it a closer look next time I stick my head in there. What exactly am I looking for?

I found a king bolete in my neighbor's lawn just this morning, I ate the stem but the cap is definately squirrel bitten. I'm going to get a spore print out of it reguardless.

The same guy right up the street has yellow muscarias and I snatched those although most are also squirrelled.

well, the hunting was good when i posted about it a week ago...

since? not so much...the bloom or whatever has really died off in this patch. The one thing I'm having trouble seeking information about is the 'triggers' that each species of shroom needs before it will start to fruit....obviously fresh rain is one of them but for edulis? Kinda goes against the local yore and that's the best info I've had to go on so far.

Am I missing out on some great resource somewhere or is this the kind of thing you shroomers like to keep to yourselves  :tongue2:....I guess I'm fascinated by these things enough now that I'm a shroomer now too.

Dangerous thing, a shroomer with nothing more than book knowledge, eh?

The orange capped ones are Amanita muscaria var. flavivolvata. Nice specimens.

The others we need more info to identify. If you're in the woods (or wherever) and you find a mushroom you want an ID for, pick it and bring it home. That way you can answer questions about the mushroom that you didn't think of while in the field. Be sure to get the entire mushroom, which may involve digging down into the ground to get the base of the stem.

Happy mushrooming!
