Hey, d'you notice what was growing around this pretty-little specimen? I'm talking in the way of trees, that is. It was my understanding that there is an almost legendary relationship between these mushrooms (more importantly the muscarinic alkaloids contained therein) and the trees that they grow near, or more to the point under. Any observations, or thoughts?

No disrespect to you mj but im a landscaper (not trying to be a detective) and this seems strange that the leaves on the ground beside it are still yellow like nice fal colors. they also seem to be from some sort of pear ttree maybe a bradford which all lost there leaves months ago. the leaves that had remained on the ground wouldnt have been so colorful by now. just my 2 cents. so come clean when did u take this?

Never seen something so beautiful as a Fly Agaric... Wish I could see a real one up close instead of just in a picture, that would make my day...

Hi. That picture is actually from Tukwilla. My friend Lisa posted the image this morning.

I had mentioned to her that all of my shroom art had been deleted from the shroomery. She thought that if she posted an image and then read all the responses sh would be able to figure if someone was tampering with the functioning of the site by hackers or something. Anyway after the post this morning much of my shroom art was back in the boxes. Several people reported to me that my threads were there but no pictures. Oh well. They are back.

So you like the look of the Amanita muscaria.

A friend of mine last fall took this image and sent it to me.

Bye for now,

Mj

Must be nice to be picking mushrooms this time of year. There's 2 feet of snow everywhere around here.

That would have been Kingston, Washington, a ferry boat ride from Edmonds. Or you can tqke a fairy boat from downtown Seattle, Washington and then drive the 20 miles to Kingston.

Damn.. I never relized how many people wanted amanitas!!! If anyone is interested I could hook you up with some this coming fall. They become very numerous during the late summer early fall here. Would a person want a mature amanita or ones that are just breaking the soil?

I am ok in a twisted kind of way. At least that is what they say.

yup, i think its fungus season now, Ive been finding some mushrooms lately, no magic ones, i did however find what looks like the psilocybe cub. strain a couple of times, golden brown with a white trim around the cap, kind of dark in the center of the cap, with a tanish -white stem , found these on someones front lawn, do you think that they could be? on grass? i put them in the oven on 250, no blueing of the stems, was just wondering, what are some basics to look for, when hunting magic mushrooms... i am also going to bring my digital camera with me so i can document what i find. maybe i can post some and you guys can give me your input. see ya around

Amanita's are so beautiful. But thats all they're good for, to look at. I won't ever eat any.

I always find the Var. Formosa with the orange caps. Still pretty to look at but not near as beautiful as Var. Muscaria with the blood red caps.

arcing, what state are you in. Just wondering, it will help so I can tell you what to look for. If you serious about mushroom hunting, its always a good idea to invest in a good feild identification guide to be safe. No you didn't find a Cubensis in grass unless it was fertilized with cow manure infected with live mycelium. You could have found a mushroom in the Stropharia group, but its sounds like it wasn't active if it didn't bruise. If your going to look for ps. cubensis, look for mushrooms growing in or near cow shit that have a tan/white cap, generally with a tan center. Cubensis will usually always have a nipple on the cap, and generally a purple-black ring(veil) around the stem. It should almost always stain blueish black where handled, and drop purple-brown spore prints.

The Lizard,

Yea I always see those things. The red cap always catches my eye. I looked them up in a field guide and if I remember correctly they are edible but not recommended. They're supposed to have a very strong hot pepper taste. Thats what I remember anyway. I lost my identification guide in a cow pasture, so its been a while since read through it.

The Lizard,

Hi.

!!!WARNING!!!

GGreatOne234, those are NOT Amanita muscaria!

They are in fact a species of Russula, possibly Russula emetica, a.k.a. "the sickener" which are poisonous and will make you very sick. An interesting, feature is they taste very hot/acrid/peppery, and should discourage eating, yet the slugs still munch them! I have made these assumptions from your photos, in which the mushrooms lack the typical "ring" or annulus, bulbous base of stem and spots which Amanitas possess.

Amanita muscaria is listed as toxic, and consumption of this species is not reccommended. Leave them alone, and just admire their beauty :smile:

Yeah, those are the one's amanita. I remember my guide saying they had a very peppery hot taste. And now that you mention it, I do remember they were toxic, but that the taste is so horrid, that its doutful one could stand to eat enough to = a fatal dose.

Hey Amanita, if you read what gggreat1234 said, you would notice that he wasnt saying those were an amanita.
