Help IDing some mushrooms.
    #4358638 - 07/01/05 08:22 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hi, this is my first time posting, and first time hunting mushrooms. I found this in Canberra, ACT,near black mountain after the area was reccomended to me by some people who had found some succesfully.

They claimed that the ones they found were P. Subcubensis (or a look alike).

I found 4 types of mushrooms (some really knarly looking ones that I didnt keep), but only kept 2 types as I thought I recognised them.

The first type has a solid golden stem, blueish grey attached gills and was found 10 meter from a river, in some grass under pine trees, from 2cm to about 4-5, with an orangy brown flat cap (some had umbrella style). It did not bruise.
Smells like a normal mushroom.
I'm unable to get spore print colours at this moment. It is the type on the right in the first photo.

The second type is the one that I suspect may be hallucinogenic.
It has a long solid (i'm pretty sure), orange stem (though that may be only because of the dirt, when I washed one, the stem was white after a bit of rubbing).
The cap is knob-like lol, with on the very top a tiny circle sticking outwards. It's colour is golden brown, the insides are usually hollow with brown powder inside, but not all. The caps are usually very easy to break by squeezing, but some a stronger than others.
No gills. The Mushroom did not bruise.

I got these ones about 50 meters down river from the first ones, under some pine needles, under a pine tree.
The mushrooms did not really have a smell, but I thought that in one the smell was "mushroomy".

Here are the pictures, there are 2 mushrooms being held, one of the 2nd type (right) that was washed, and one of the first (left). The rest of the 1st type of mushrooms are all on the right of the ruler, the rest of the 2nd type are on the left of the ruler.

Sorry for blurr...

These were found after about 2 weeks of rain, and the groudn was still wet and damp, and drizzling.
