Misplaced foriegn fungi in Northwest?
    #4094942 - 04/25/05 02:05 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Here's another one from the memory banks of psychoactive fungi hunting from the 70s. In a noncoastal intermountain northwestern state a strongly active mushroom was picked in large quantities in hop fields. In late August, 85-90 F temp., when the hops were tall and produced at least 85% floor shading, and during irrigation times. Very hot and humid conditions. This part of this state is normally very arid, hot dry summers, cold snowy winters (rocky mountain state). The fungi: deep black spore print, brownish gray cap that turned more grayish white with age. Cap convex to flat with age. Both cap and stem deeply bluing. Very strongly active. The only time it was found in these hop fields were during these humid tropical like conditions. I have puzzled for years on this one. Was this a misplaced tropical species?

im guessing Idaho for the state

and guessing Copelandia as the mushroom

those are just guesses, from your descriptions

btw, Copelandia is a very far-flung assumption,
considering the location and habitat

maybe there was dung in the "hops field"..

far-flung and baffling..

Copelandia was my guess also, but while I have experience in PNW fungi, I am totally ignorant of tropical and semi tropical types. The impression that I got when collecting these was that they really didn't belong here. But, then again, the heat and humidity in those wet sweltering hop "jungles" felt like I was in the tropics. They didn't use manure fertilizer. These weren't Pan. Subbalts.

I was hoping this post would catch someone's attention, someone who was there picking in the 70s. By the time AFOAF left off gathering in those hop fields(and never went back) there were at least 100 people or more who knew about it and were hunting there. Rumors later told of nasty confrontations between shroom hunters and field hands and owners.

the magical forest of mushrooms?

it grows active mushrooms (apperently) year round...

the trouble is finding it, and getting permission (an entry fee) to use it..

I grew up in Idaho and way back in 1975 or so I remember seeing a hop field in the area of Houston that was being mobbed by at least 50 Hispanics all carrying empty bags going into the hop field.  I didn't stop to find out what was going on but I assumed they were harvesting mushrooms of some type.  I should have investigated further.
I now live in New Jersey so I don't have the opportunity to investigate further.

Right, I could never imagine Hispanic (Latino you mean?) workers going into a farm field with sacks to harvest the crop being grown there.

Dude, you just resurrected a ten year old post with your first post.

ha, yeah, harvesters more than likely.  nice bump, eh?

and as long as they weren't brazilians, i guess he's technically ok calling them hispanic.  of course, you're right though; latino/a is more accurate most times.  much better than 'mexicans' that a lot of the special dummies around here label everyone with brown skin and an accent.
