hey there newbie! I'm pretty new here myself, but I've learned alot in the last month or so already. Shroomery actually has alot of info about mushroom hunting in your area which I believe is contained in the 'mushroom hunting FAQ' here's the link:

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23470

also, other websites like Erowid have a ton of info and there is an article about psilocybin containing mushrooms in Australia & New Zealand. Here's the link to that:

http://www.erowid.org/library/books_online/magic_mushrooms_aunz/magic_mushrooms_aunz.shtml

It'll take you a while to read through all of that stuff, but once you get through it you'll be pretty clued up. Once you start hunting you can post photos of your finds here to get ID'ed so that you don't eat any poisonous mushrooms by mistake. Shroomery.org is a great resource! Enjoy!

"under and around cow shit"

Mushrooms don't grow under cow shit. That's an urban legend that I really wish would die. They grow out of the top of cow pies. No need to get you feet dirty.

Soulmotion gave you some good info. Happy hunting.

Shroomy Dan, Here are a few images of shrooms growing under the cow shit. Copelandia cyanescens from hawaii.







In fact many cubes grow from under a cow-pie outwards from the sides of the patties and thent he tropism brings them upwards. This occurs when spores fall on blades of grass and thent he cow drops her shit onthe grass blades. Thent he mycelia gerows under the cowpie and pinners form and worm their ways out along the sides of the cowpies.

I have many pictures but this was easy to find.

That is just one method of spore dispersal which causes cubes to fruit from under a cow-pie.

The cube I am holding in my hand also grew frm under the manure heap. You can see the stem coming up from behind the pattie i am holding and the top of the pie is facing the screen, and the shroom was under the bottom. That is where it originated from. You can turn over cow pies and find pinners and sometimes some are finger thick and just starting to pop out form th under the pie. Others pop up through the pie.

Well there they are MJ. I'm obviously mistaken.

Is this common? It seems to defy the phototropic nature of the shrooms.

thanks for your help guys/girls
the first link only has info on usa the when and where bit says stuff like "Conocybe cyanopes
Found from May through September usualy in dense shade scattered among mosses, and in wet soil around bogs, swamps, and ditches in the northwestern USA and as far east as Michigan. Carpophores grow well in sphagnum moss having a range of pH 7-8."
see its mentions habitat which i already know of as iv read alot of info on
it says season but says bettween stet months but i have no idea on what that means for me as im on the other side of the world nearly
and has locations in usa which is also of no use to me
the erowid link i have read and it meantions also habitats which iv read about and have writen up on it also meantions locations but as nsw or sydney which is fine but i still dont know if they grow near me as im abround 1 hour drive from sydney
so i dont know whether i should be searching in the tree line area where decompoing wood would be for some of the wood prefering species or if i should be just consentrating on the grassy areas for speacies that gorw on grass
or cow shit which i have been checking but im not sure if a species that have been found in sydney will be growing near me
thanks for all your help anyway guys
is there anyone who knows the general area as far as species gos?

Hi again! If you click on the first link I gave you, then click on the
'which mushrooms grow wild in my area' it'll take you to a page which tells you which psilocybin mushrooms grow in your area. In your case it just tells you what species grow in your country; the species are not broken down into provinces.

Here's the full link:

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23483#australia

If you read what species grows in Australia, and you know what environments they grow in then you're off to a good start. If you need more info, use the search engine,

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/search.php?Cat=0

to see if anyone has had any luck in your neck of the woods.

Hope that helps!
