Eucalyptus mushroom?
    #883463 - 09/14/02 07:22 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I was perusing my local Lowe?s in search of some various gardening supplies, and was quite surprised upon walking past a bag of eucalyptus bark/wood chips, and saw mushrooms fruiting inside of the bag and a good portion of the bark covered in this orange and white mycellium that looked almost like coarse netting.... very interesting looking mushroom- any ideas as to species?

I was anticipating a psychoactive species :wink: I just thought it was an interesting mushroom...and a strange place to be fruiting.

Looks like a Lepiota of some sort. Nice photos and an interesting find.

BTW, it's not one of the large, edible Lepiotas, so don't think about eating it. Some small Lepiotas are deadly poisonous.

Happy mushrooming!

As a lot of the natural mulch areas in Australia are either Eucalypt or similar species most Australian lignious mushrooms fruit off it

Definetely a Lepiota. If theres remains of a veil, the gills are pink, and it has redish meat, it is probably Lepiota Americanus, an edible lepotia, which I often find growing on woodchips.
