Well we yesterday we went out hunting for shrooms pretty much all day. We went to about 4 different horse fields and one cow pasture. We were hoping to find some Pan Subbs and maybe a cubie, but I think its just been too damn cold lately for Pan Subbs. We didn't find many mushrooms, but I do have a of pics.
First things first, we A TON of mushrooms growing on this huge ass pile of horse dung/woodchips, we got about 3- 1/2 gallon ziplock bags full. My friend origonaly discovered the spot, so when he first got there he thought the shrooms were something we had found in my backyard(panaeolus), but they weren't. Needless to say he ate about 40 of them and he said he definatly felt something. A very stupid thing to do I know, but he has heard enough shit from me, and he won't be eating any other mushrooms unless he shows them to me first. Any way... on ward to the description
Caps: 1-2inches, orange brown when young, brown when older. Caps have a point on them.
Gills: White on younger, tan on older specimens.
Spores: Forgot to do a spore print...
Habitat: Horse dung/woodchips. Temps in the 50s at night, 70s during day. Found in Georgia.
Other: Shrooms were very frail, just shattered easily.
This is the shroom in question, this is a small one.
Gills of young and old specimens.
The mushrooms in question are on the left. Mushrooms on the right are Amanita muscaria var. formosa... they're pretty faded from the rain the night before. We saw about 30 of these mushrooms on the side of the road on the way back to my house... Weird.
Thats it for the mushroom pics but I have some other pics including some pics of my self... so here ya go.
On the way to a horse pasture, I spotted sometype of tree like datura growing in someones yard, so I jumped out of the car, picked a few flowers and drove off. I believe these flowers to be Brungmansia sp. but I really have no clue, because it gets way too cold for Brungmansia to grow here.
Heres me sniffiing one of the flowers...
This is a pic of my friend stan holding one of the flowers next to his head for size compaison.. huge flowers.
I leave you with a pic of myself looking like one weird motherfucker, wearing my early 80s sunglasses and my hair sticking out of the hat... Haha, I need to get some pictures of my self looking normal :P
might be brown dunce caps, but definitely a Conocybe. Not a smart thing to do, playing russian roulette with various mushrooms species. Hope it was indeed the brown dunce cap and not some other poisonous species of Conocybe.
Heh.. He asked what they were and I told him some type of Conocybe(I'm doing pretty well with this ID thing)...
Anyway... its been about 4 or 5 days since he ate them, and his liver hasnt failed yet...the worst thing that happened was he had major stomach upset.
I had him really freaked out, he thought he was going to die for a while, then I looked up some of the possiblities and let him know that he wasn't going to die. He agreed not to eat any mushrooms unless I or someone at the shroomery has identified them. Actualy... LK... you remember Anfro from settles? It was his dumb ass.. I thought I tought him better than that. Oh well, it won't happen again.
I forgot to add to the first post.. We did identify a patch of about 100 Panaeolus microsporus, the only mushrooms worthy of mention from yesterday besides the amanitas.
