Hello to all Aussie shroomers!!!! How many of us are there who visit these forums?
....and what is happening in the world of shroomery in your part of Oz?
I am from the mid Hunter Valley in NSW and we were lucky enough to start off December with 40mm of rain - good stuff - not much around in the way of fungi though....some puffballs (Calvatia Cyathiformis) - very interesting to observe the method of surface platelets peeling to expose the purple/brown spore mass....
....also some Panaeolus antillarum fruiting on horse dung....a fairy ring of Agrocybe pediades in the back lawn, as well as some conocybe lactea and coprinus plicatilis in the lawn. Masses of fascinating Cyathus stercoreus (birds nest fungus) in the paddock.
Hi HV! I'm up here about 1hr north of Brisbane, I'm only new to this and can't speak latin so I can't give you any real info on whats around other than nothing, I do cover alot of the greater south east area for work and don't see much at all, the sun vaporises everything, the grass was brown for the last 6 months until we got that rain front a weeks ago. I did find Copelandia cyanescens here and some P. Cubensis in the CBD, I'm pretty sure there was quite a few different varieties of actives growing where I found the cubs but I currently only know those 2. Even puffballs and toad stools are rare in the yards, not a mushroom hunters paradise, I hope it rains again soon and I'll be into, might have some more info then. Catch ya!
