Help! Any NZers in here?
    #611276 - 04/17/02 10:43 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I went for a look today for shrooms, and I didn't seem to find anything of interest, but it may just be my lack of knowledge. Are there are NZers in here that usually go hunting that can give me some pointers? And is it actually season yet?

Helllo
I am in New Zealand in Nelson infact yes sunny Nelson. Perhaps thats why there aren't many shrooms around at the moment we need more rain but I can definatley say there have been a few Psilocybe Cyanescens (Gold tops, wavy caps) pop up around the house but thats probably only cause I've been watering the patches. Keep lookin man.
Where abouts are you two?

in nz i had my first ever mushroom experience. It was Liberty caps ps. semilanceata. You have Ps.Subaeruginosa, Ps.Australiana, Ps. Aucklandii, Ps.tasmaniana and Ps.makarorae - which are all woodlovers except for tasmaniana which is a dung lover. Ps.cyanescens?? There are variants of subaeruginosa that go wavy - you sure about that id??? We thought we had ps.Cyanescens in melb, but MJshroomer and a few others have questioned that macroscopic id.

I'm in the Auckland region, but I guess the weather hasn't been right. A bit weird weather, really sunny on days, then wet on others. However, I did see a few little babies ready to pop up, but not sure if these were actually shrooms. The photos on the erowid.org mushroom section are a bit hard to compare with the ones in the field, and I haven't found any site that has detailed descriptions (stem, colour, season, spore colours, cap, etc). But something strange happened last week. I looked out at my lawn, and there's 2 patches of mushrooms growing. My lawn is like a barren grass/dirt strip. The mushrooms are a sort of weird white with yellow tint to them, the inside of the stem is a faint yellow, and I tried doing a spore print, but nothing appeared on the paper (so I guess I did it wrong).

A friend of mine knows someone with knowledge, so hopefully I'll hear about it in the next few weeks, then I'll post on here again.

Hold on. Today is looking pretty bleak, I was hoping for rain last night, so perhaps we'll get a decent drizzle this weekend.

Good news. The weather here is miserable. I watched the news and apparently there's a heavy rainfall warning out, and it hits Northland at 12am tonight (24th). It'll work it's way down the country and drench us all.

Here are the species found in New Zealand which are psychoactive. The first the amanita contains no psilocybine or psilocine but has ibotenic acid and muscimol which are the active ingredients in the Amanitas.

All the others containe psilocine and psilocybine and related trytamine compounds.

Also check my book, "Magic Mushrooms of Australia and New Zealand for more information on New Zealand species and locations.

http://www.erowid.org/library/books_online/magic_mushrooms_aunz/magic_mushrooms_aunz.shtml

Amanita muscaria,
Copelandia cyanescens,
Gymnopilus purpuratus,
Gymnopilus spectabiblis,
Panaeolus subbalteatus,
Psilocybe aucklandii,
Psilocybe australiana,
Psilocybe eucalypta,
Psilocybe kumaenorum,
Psilocybe makarorae,
Psilocybe semilanceata,
Psilocybe subaeruginosa
, and Psilocybe tasmainana.

Good Luck,

mj

Cheers for that, I've actually read that a few times in the past months. Quite handy. Next time I go looking, I'll post some rough descriptions of each shroom (don't have a digital camera, unfortunately).

Damn. I should head out soon too. I keep having dreams about having some shrooms. Rather annoying, being as I've never seen/eaten any before. Everyone around here seems to be afraid of shrooms or have lost interest. Bastards.

Hey everyone
I've been hunting a few times this week and woo-hoo I have myself about 2 trips of Gold Tops (I think Ps. Subbalateus) sp? I dont know the name but I know the ones I had a fuckin intense trip off these last year so it should be good. But the shroom season here in Nelson isn't really kicking off yet, we just had the 'first round' over the weekend with rains but its been dry all week so ya need to find some pretty moist places to be successful.
Hey dude what are you saying damn about kiwifruit season? We allllways get our best shroom harvests from KIWIFRUIT ORCHARDS! Damn I would love to work on a kiwifruit orchard then I wouldnt have to be parinoid as fuck running across the rows hehe. Or did you mean damn cause theres a lot of workers on the orchards? Cause I can understand that.
Anyway I gotta go but good luck hunting everyone I will post again soon and I am taking my camera shroom hunting with me so hopefully soon I will scan some pics for you all!
Good luck with your fungi~

Hmmm, how annoying. Oh well. Guess ya just gotta allow for technology to fuck up now and again. But I lost my trip report
How is everyone goin with their hunting? The weather has been shit here in Nelson (i.e. sunny, warm, dry) so I am kind of pissed off about that does anyone know of good kinds of places that still get shrooms when its dry? I spose just anywhere moist and damp. Oh well at least I still have my terranium, that fruits rain or shine
