amen to that. I went shroomhunting around my 'local bushwalking track' today, and got quite a few of the above shrooms. I have spent over 3 hours trying to find correct identification for shroom pics 2-5, but at least ive learnt a hell of a lot in the process.
Im also new to hunting, but am loving it so far.

I do have one difference though to your shrooms, shrooms (pics 2-5) bruise blue or dark blue color after about 10-30 mins, which is clearly visable. ???? any info would be appreciated

thanks for posting those pics, i was just about to :P

The first 2 pics are of a bolete. Not active but some are great to eat.

The basic rule of thumb given for boletes is that they are safe to eat if their pores are yellow or white, and neither the pores nor the stem are red, or stain blue when bruised. However, while this rule of thumb will take you fairly far and is the reason boletes have a reputation for being a safe family, it is not entirely reliable. Better by far to get a proper identification book and key out the mushroom completely.

The 4th and 5th pics are a type of russula (non active).

The last pic looks like a wood blewit (lepista nuda, non active) although the pictures quite dark. The spore print should be a pale pinkish-buff and the mushroom should have a perfumey smell to it.

None of those look to be hallucinogenic.


Here are a couple tips to help identification:

What was each mushroom growing from? Were they growing from wood, from the ground, from dung, etc.

What color is the spore print for each mushroom?

Are the gills attached to the stem or completely free from it? Try cutting the mushroom in half vertically to find out.


Those three things are among the most important features for identifying mushrooms.


Guessing at genera:

1. Suillus
2. Need to see the underside of the cap.
3. Russula? Tricholoma? Try breaking the stem to see if it's fibrous or breaks like a piece of chalk. Tricholomas have fibrous stems and Russulas will break like chalk.
4. Tricholoma?
5. Cortinarius
6. Inocybe
7. Cortinarius

Happy mushrooming!

Hi and welcome aboard. You won't be able to get off tap on these i am afraid but here's some tips.
Tip 1.

Amanita Muscaria could grow under introduced pine trees but usaully when it becomes a bit cooler.

Tip 2.

What i call Psilocybe Eucalyptus could be found in the Eucalyptus Forest again when it gets a little cooler.

Tip 3.
Check out Bluemeanies site http://www.shaman-australis.com/%7Ebluemeanie/index.html for some good Australian species.

Have a good time and play safe.

Enjoy the world around you ...... Good Luck Hunting and Collecting. The future of shrooms depends on all of us.

Hi, long time reader here. My shaman buddy isnt around anymore so I cant rely on finding mushrooms with a divining rod =(. I tried praying but that didnt work so my last resort was to actually sign up and post an id request =P

Found these all on pasture under pines. Lots of cow shit, rotting wood/ pine needles.








(know its a bad pic)

Habitat: Pine forest/pasture - Found in small grassy area abundant in pines and cows growing from pine mulch/cow shit and various grains of dirt. Some of the dirt was very small grain. Others had larger grains. So uh...varying dirt/s (btw havent smoked any weed today =(...)

Gills: The gill color varies from a white to a light blackish color.

Stem: Whitish, black

Cap: 2 tone orange or tan smooth, not hygrophanous, up to 3.5cm diameter.

Spore print color: A black or dark brown. (pictures suck so might try and get a scan later).

Bruising: all specimens bruise blue.

Location: Picked in South Coast NSW Australia.

Welcome to the shroomery!

Looks like you got Psilocybe subaeruginosa there. 

Next time start a new thread instead of waking up a three year old one.
