gday.
found these little ones at the foot of the mountain that i live at.
i live in the Brisbane Western area (qld australia). I was walking through the bush, mainly for the purpose of walking, as it has been about a good week - week and a half (at least?) since the rain we had, but i took my trusty paper bag and scissors just in case.
k so this is my first ID request :S








Habitat: three somewhat dense clumps of them were found, one growing off a large decaying branch, two growing straight out from the earth. all three were under some pretty dense eucalyptus leaf-matter

Gills: the gills are of a mustardy color and were free.

Stem: stem is fleshy, non hollow and white. approx 30-40mm in length, 5-10 mm width, slightly larger at the base. the skin of the stem had a slight violet hue to it. When cut, the violet hue was quite recognisable. you can kinda see that in the picture of the upturned cap. You can see the cobwebby veil which is a real rich orange around the neck of the stem.

Cap: when i first found them, they looked like they had been spraypainted golden (with that spraypaint tint you get). they have since dulled to a mustardy gold. most caps were about 5-10mm in radius, the largest one i have (picture) was about 20mmradius.
i couldnt see a real umbo. smooth, no warts present. can't tell if its hygrophanous or not as it was pretty dry out there (1-2 weeks since rain).

Spore Print Color: I am yet to get a sporeprint. I left the one in the picture out overnight, gave it a tap or two in the morning, but it gave me a whole lot of nothing. Like i said, i think these guys have been out there for a while. If it is any help, you can see a rich orange/brown on the veil. This was also very apparent around the base of the mushrooms (from where they were growing). It was like a orange/brown carpet :O

Bruising: no real bruising was observed, just that violet hue that i got when i cut them. That hue also died down after a while. (went from a pale, but solid violet back to a whitish shade).

Location: picked from the base of a 'mountain' (its more of a over glorified hill) in Queensland, Australia.

just looking at it, it kind of looks like a Coprinacea, (and im hoping) P. Echinata Cleland, (though i cant find any mention of them here or any pictures on google search..)
only problem is that it resembles Inocybe fastigiata, although fastigiata doesnt have that orange sporecolor or cobwebby veil...

Beautiful pics of a Cortinarius species.

You can see the cortina bits on the stem, covered in rusty spores.

Here is some info: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/cortinarius.html

would this species be psychoactive?

edit: "identifying a Cortinarius to species is often best described as a Quixotic endeavor"

... sweeeeeet.
haha

There are more species of Cortinarius than any other genera of mushrooms. No corts are known to be psychoactive, but some contain amatoxins. Though a few species of cortinarius are considered edible, its best for the edible mushroom hunter to avoid the entire genus.

No chance of it being psychoactive, but there is a fairly decent chance that it contains orellanine, which causes death about three weeks after ingestion.

I don't know of any corts that contain amatoxins, maybe you meant orellanine.

Alpha-amanitin:



Orellanine:
