well, after a 6 hr hike i managed to find all of these, they are tiny and few, but nonetheless they are the first pan subbs of this year. from the same patch i picked them last year. they were growing among conocybe terena., i reckon a few more weeks before theres any serious flushes.
i checked many a rotted haystack, which dispite populat conception is a place ive NEVER found pan subbs, they are always riddled with mycelium, and often have several coprinius inky caps sprouting on the top. but never anything good.
these guys were found in dung/straw/soil and im in a crabby mood because i was working all night and i got trenchfoot for the hike and im in emence pain :P
nice find. Hopwever accordcing to you they were in a mixture of straw/dung/soil, so the hay is there.
In cow pies they are rare in this part of the country. I have really only found a quantity up on MAui where they all grew only in manue.
As for the PNW, I have only picked this species form manure about five or six times and never more than a few cowpies with them in it, otherwise extreememly rare in Cow dung or horse dung but common in haystacks here.
have a shroomy dya.
Again a good score.
Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.
oh i know the hay is there, i find the best picks are always in compost with hay in it, but never just hay by itself. that seems to be a place where im only able to fing coprinus mushrooms, and as you can guess i dont find them particularly rewarding, especially since i like to drink occasionally :)
its still quite early around here tho, theres alot of colonized haystacks, im thinging its all coprinius, but you never know, maybe one nice thunderstorm will bring out a big fat flush. you know the kind? the 2-inch accross, 5 inch tall (but usually stouter) banded little umbrellas as aposed to these snivelers :) remember, these are very small. the biggest one is probably comparable to the smallest specimine i would normally bother picking in the later months of summer :)
good luck with your fimetarias, ill have to come back out west sometime and try for some of those again.
