A little help for you subb hunters
    #4599669 - 08/30/05 06:12 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey it's asian yum yum again with more helpful hints for those hunting subbs in or around the ohio area. first things first, here's an average subb patch around columbus. it's in nice grass that is sprinkled everyday, about a day and a half after some rainfal.

no need to argue, they are definatly subbs. this is how the majority of them look around here. kinda small, but still cool.
now...a few things to look for that will help you out. more conical or even flattened caps. ones that bend back towards the stem seem to be too small to matter, or are foes. also, dark rings in the cap are usually a helper, though i have seen some foes using this trick. here are some nice examples.


beautiful aren't they? also one thing that will help determine a subb from a foe, subb's have a usually invisible spiral running down the stem. this can be seen very well in the following example. foes tend to have more straight lines running down the stem.


the main ID for me however, lies under the cap. not only can small spore deposites be seen where the cap meets the stem, but the gills are usually a dead giveaway. foes have less gills, there are gaps between them and every other gill only extends from the outside of the cap, about halfway in. subb gills tend to be more packed in. here's a comparison (sorry my camera isn't that good).
foe: l i l i l i l i
subb: lllllllllllllll


and another thing...around my area ponds and wellwatered grass is nice. but it is not just this. oh no. there are spots of beautiful grass that don't fruit worth a dime. the main thing that connects the spots that DO fruit is geese. at first i thought it had something to do with their shits. this is however, not the case. i have a hunch that in this area they are the main translocators of subb spores. don't have anything to back that up with, but if you see a nice grass with geese...try it out. see if my theory holds up.
Well cat's good hunting! i hope you found this helpful!!!

That one picture with the spiraling stem example is good, but MAN in person that thing had INSANE spirals on it. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it serves as a great example.

However, I just want to add one thing! Subbs are something that you reallly want to be able to get down and seperate from foes right on the spot in the field without a print. Theres been days where I have found 200g+ wet of subbs. If I were to print every single one of those, I would literally spend hours getting the caps of probably 400-500 mushrooms or more on something to print. Always make sure you know what they look like in your area, and go from there.
