Himalayan Mushrooms! Pretty ones too...
    #858042 - 09/01/02 11:34 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

hi guys,
i was travelling in the himalayas this month and my travels led me to a valley high up in the camba district called khajjiar... with beautiful fir trees and dense forests with lush tropical vegetation
it also had something which im sure we all love... mushrooms! this area recieves a lot of reinfall and has an ideal climate for mushrooms to grow in... i lost count after about 20 species... there were so many different kinds sprouting up from everywhere.. some under trees, some in the grass...anyways im a newbie and tho ive taken mushrooms a number of times, never picked ?em. so i didn?t pick any of these, since i had no clue what they were... didnt wanna try em without having a book athand...
thought they might be familiar to some of you guys? if you guys can id them, fair enuff, if u cant, then just chill n enjoy the ipcs!
and oh yeah, thanks afor a great forum... im gonna be around here quite a bit as i start growing my own shrooms
as well as collecting them!
here are the pics!









guys../. the last pic is the best me thinks... love the little grasshopper on top of the mushroom... and the mushrooms look like theyre right out of a fairy tale too...
someday when im more knowledgeable id like to go n pick some of these babies, the environment is great for tripping... couple of pics of that now...

last piccie for now... sorry if i posted too many...


ok guys... thats all for nwo... hope u enjoyed the pics as much as i enjoyed taking ?em...
would love to hear all your comments, me being a newbie n all.. tell me if i got anything interesting here?
thanks...
peace and love
lizardking (i realize another guy is called the lizardking here... oops...:) :blush:

Nice pictures... I thought there is only snow and ice there.  :smile:
ID's are hard to make. I'd go for the genus only:
#4 Amanita
#5 Gymnopilus ?
#7 Russula
#9 Agaricus

Those mushrooms in the second last photo with the flared cap are very beautiful. They just draw me to them. I'm not skilled at making ID's so I won't try.

Let me say that the quality of these photos is absolutely spectacular, and the content is marvellous. You certainly did give us something to look at and dream about. The photo of the mountains is awe inspiring.

hi guys
thanks for the enthusiastic replies, im glad that someone appreciated the pics...
i dont know jack about mushroom id'ing but from the pics i have seen in guide books pics 1 and 3 look a bit like some other psilocybes i have seen... but im guessing

thanks for the attempted id's on that zeronio... no man, the himalayas are a very diverse habitat ecologically... huge range of flora and fauna...
i didnt even know they had mushrooms till i went to this part of the state... people here use mushrooms as medicine, theyre sold at 3-4k RS. per kilo, which is bout 65-80USD per kilo, and then ground up and used as medicine by the local doctors...
id love to go and learn from one of the locals about the different varieties of fungi they know about... and then go trip in the beautiful mountains... the scenery has to be seen to be believed... mist rolling down the hills, with different hues of green and lush tropical vegetation all around you... birds and insects calling.. pine trees everywhere...its beautiful man.

Mr>mushrooms: thanks man, dont worry view them at your leisure!

Enter: sorry man, no spore prints of any of these... im not an experienced mycologist... i just learnt how to take a spore print today from this site... sorry man, i can imagine its a dissapointment for you..

orchidman: yeah man, i fel tthe same way about those flared cap shrooms. they are absolutely gorgeous arent they... so inviting and so symmetrical. nature is perfect in her designs.
that pic was taken with a flash coz the light was receding, which is also why it has come out so clearly... the mountains make me humble man...just makes me realize that there are greater forces at play than us...:)

everyone:im glad you like my pics, will post some more of scenery and some of the mountains. oh yeah i also got a pic of some coprophiliac mushrooms from sri lanka that all of you might be interested in.. found them growing in elephant dung!!

till tomorrow friends
peace and love
L.King

That first pic is definitely an active Psilocybe, it just screams psilocybe! I have to go to work now but I'll do some research and try to find out what could possibly be growing in the himilayas. Should have taken spore prints from those man! It almost looks like Psilocybe hispanica?

Pics one and eight both look very psilocybe like in appearance. Wish you had gotten prints, these are amazing pics.

Outstanding photos. Great scenery.

My guesses on genus:
1. Psilocybe
2. Panaeolus?
3. Marasmius?
4. Amanita
5. Gymnopilus?
6. Tricholoma?
7. Russula
8. Collybia?
9. Agaricus

Post more photos when you get them. Those are great.

Happy mushrooming!

The last one looks a bit like Stropharia rugoso-annulata.

Absolutely stunning wow...I to am realy tired after my 80 hour work week...but pics #1 and #8 scream psilocybe to me as well...I think after a closer inspection that they may even be the same mushrooms but in different stages...wow.

Cheers

"...I found dozens of single specimens.  That's what I call hunting.  There are only a few "good" hunters here, even now.  You're certainly in that group.  I would imagine if we hunted together we'd find our styles are similar."

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.

Awesome pics man. It's not to often that we see pics from outside the US or Australia. That first mushroom had to be some kind of active species... Very cool :smile:

hi guys,
thank you for the replies... its cool to see that you guys appreciate the pics... im glad my effort wasn?t wasted!
for all those who requested more pics... guys, sorry but that place is like 2000 km from where i live.. its really far away , and im not going back there anytime soon... so im sorry. i shud have taken more pics, and spore prints, but oh well.. such is life :smile:
anyways, i do have a couple more pics to whet your interest. nothing as nice as yesterday, but whatever, i thought id put them out here anyways...

i feel a bit stupid coz i?m new to mycology, i have read a couple of guides etc. to growing, but dont know much else other than a few genus names? and that to be careful with Amanitas? hehehe
im actually a cannabis gardener... . ok enuff talk, lets get on with the pics:

first pic is of some undergrowth with loads of fungi everywhere... its not very clear but was designed to show the general density of mushrooms on the jungle floor...


the next pic is of me taking a pic of my favourites of the lot...my dad took this pic...:)


the next pic is one i didnt post yesterday... another mushroom growing close to a tree...


heres some beautiful greenery:


some ganja, outdoor tropical sativas... my favourite plant :laugh: .. this is wild ganja, growing at altitude of bout 1900-2000 metres in the chamba valley. its cultivated cousin in parvati valley i.e. malana, manali etc. yields some of the best charas in the world...:)


and some coprophiliac mushrooms from sri lanka, growing in elephant dung...


the surroundings... and why the mushrooms were there (coz of the dung from the pachyderms?)


one final pic of the majestic mountains... and the mist...


thank you all for the kind comments lizard king, papa bear, remytoxic man, stinvetro,toad, gumby,downt1me,dobie420, and moe howard, makes it all worthwhile. that place is seriously a mycologists dream come true, its bursting with mushrooms, mist is always rolling in and out keeping it nice n humid.
wish you guys could have seen it for yourself, and i cud have learnt some from y?all!
anyways, thats all the pics i have for now. im planning on getting myself a good guide book and go hunting in the UK this fall.. from mid sep onwards... can anyone reccomend a good book?

take care guys
peace and love
lizardking.

Ive read in several sources that marijuana plants originated in the Himalayas. From their they spread throught the world but many believe that its origen is from that area.

Those in elephant dung look like psilocybes ...
