Hi all, This is my first post here so I thought I would take the chance to introduce myself as well. My names PK and I live on the Gold Coast in S.E QLD, Australia. I'm relatively new to the world of mushroom hunting and have been trudging the fields for a few weeks now without much success but had great day today, went out on another myco mission to get some new spore prints for microscopy, it was about 2pm already so I decided to check out a some new hunting grounds and to my joy I found my first ever wild P.Cubensis to take a print from , stained blue in seconds and left a nice purple print, yeahy! She was the only one there, in some cow dung, under some trees next to a creek along with lots of look a likes, some Panaeolus antillarum I think, so Ill be going back there tomorrow morning because after all the rain and the nice warm day today there may be some more.... it was a bit dry so I may take a watering can or something. Only fear is that because its opposite a skatepark I'm not the only one who knows about it. oh well, whatever the case it totally made my day and I had a little joy dance..
Been finding lots of chlorophyllous molybdites EVERYWHERE, some absolutely massive ones too, big as dinner plates, one footy feild was covered in them! I can see why some people may mis-ID young specimens for goldies, but they feel totally different, very felt like and light to the touch with little flaky bits ontop plus the gills are a different colour and, well, the spores look evil green. Thanks for letting me join your community and I look forward to contributing as much as I can! PK..
