Amanita Muscaria grows in Ontario. Some acquaintances have smoked the skin of the cap . There is a psilocybe quebecensis(sp.) that grows in northern Ontario and Quebec. I've read about some other varieties that grow in New York as well. Mushroom spores do not recognise international borders though, so chances are- they're here! Wish I could be more help. Happy Hunting. :smile: :smile: :smile:

I've found a few types up here in N. Ontairio but have not yet identified them. I could use some help on knowing what to look for. If I find anything out myself I'll let you know NewShroomer.

Thank you crispy and fungistump. I've been looking pretty hard for Amanita muscaria. Everywhere I go, I'm always looking under pine, birch and spruce trees for the chance they might be there but no luck so far. I have found a mushroom on a lawn that looks like panaeolus foenisecii, but I can't tell for sure, so I don't trust eating it. There were only 2-3 mushrooms anyways. There are no cow fields close to where I live, but there may be some further away. I want to know if it would be worth going out all that way. If I did go to a cow field, would there be a good chance of finding mushrooms? Also I hope to find Gymnopilus (big laughing gym) if it does grow here, which I believe it does. If you find anything interesting fungistump, let me know, and I'll let you know if I find anything.

NewShroomer, scroll to the top of the page and use the search engine to find out more. Type in - "ontario shrooms". Mushroom John and others have posted lots of info there :smile:

Also- don't eat Amanita Muscaria please. I wanted to come back to mention this. This is the time of year to find them.

I already checked mjshroomer's list of mushrooms that grow in Ontario. What I really wanted to find out was if anyone else has found interesting mushrooms in Ontario, or if I just have bad luck, or lack of knowledge in hunting. I haven't found anything, what I'm looking for is successful hunts by other shroomery members.
I'll take your advice and not eat A. muscaria. Beautiful mushroom though isn't it?
