"...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.

HEHEh, the stem in that second picture is wicked-mean looking!~

Kind of a grubby looking find, but man, i'm sure that those things can still tickle the old tastebuds!!
-First time i ate weilii i couldn't believe what i was tasting..
I describe it as a "higher frequency than anything else ive ever eaten, it is like eating a cloud from the sky.".

Shroom on dude,
GG

Them weilii's ain't no joke..

Keep shroomin,

Greetings all, nice find...
Im a resident of the great state of georgia and have gone hunting for the elusive weilli on several occasions... all unfortunatly with no good result.I was wondering if (and without breaking the rules of the forum) i could obtain a specific location of where i could find some weilli.  Of course dont post a reply here, merely asking to privatly speak with one of the more experienced hunters for some advice. normally i wouldnt dare to ask, but i wouldnt want this weilli season to end and me not having my annual weilli appreciation. also ... the shroomery is one of the best mushroom related forums i have ever viewed great work to all those involved....
: :wink: :wink:

Bad form.
No asking for exact field locations.

read this:

---------------------------
About habitat, season, and where to look...Well, season has been almost non-exsistent since may. Only a few losse fruits here and there every 3-4 weeks during the summer. The main season for these mushrooms doesn't start until the fall rains, which is usually late august early september-november. I'm not finding anything at all lately except a couple in my backyard due to using a sprinkler. Wait until it starts raining regularly again and you'll have much better chances.

Habitat; New lawns from 3-8 yrs old, typically in centipede and bermuda grass. Disturbed grounds in general(construction areas etc...) that look like they've settled and are atleast 3 yrs old since being disturbed. Along the edge of developed grounds, like where a lawn meets the woods. Hillsides that are shaded and have been disturbed. Hunt in low grounds where water and fog collect frequently, but doesn't ever flood. Old flood plains that don't flood anymore. Under powerlines that get bush hogged(underbrush cut out) every year. Look around sweetgums that are only 10-15 feet tall. Every patch I have is covered more in leaves than pine straw, but I have seen them pop up in pine islands.

Basically start by looking in newer lawns, if everything looks right(age of neighbor hood, low lying grounds, etc...) and you still don't find anything, find acsess to the woods behind the neighborhood and walk the edge of the backyards and into the woods 10-15 feet. Abandon lots that were going to be something but were instead left to regrow can also be good areas, there are lots of these lots in suburbian ATL.

Well, actually most of my sucsess is in semi-wooded areas rather than grass. They are a large psilocybe, and it has to be really damp for them to make an appearance in open lawns(usually later in the season towards fall) I have yet to find one growing in a lawn this year so far. But when they do show up in lawns, it seems they prefer bermuda grass lawns more than any other grassses, although I have seen them in other grasses before.

Heres the secret to finding weilii. They flourish in areas where the soil was disturbed by construction. The most reliable and easiest way to find weilii, is to look in newer neighborhoods that were built anywhere from 5-10 years ago. Every dead end neighborhood has a cul de sac, usually a few. Well, if you've ever worked construction, especially in new neighborhoods, you'd know that all those trees and braches/limbs that get cut down get burried somewhere, and its usually in the woods at the end of a cul de sac. Find the trash hole or burry site in a newer neighbor hood and take a look around. Remember, they only grow from redclay, and from what I've seent hey prefer low grounds next to flood plains where the humidity is always high. So if you find a cul de sac in a newer neighborhood, and the ground consists mainly of redclay, and the area is low lying and moist, there will most likely be a few weiliis to be found.

I'm not sure how far north they grow, but they were discovered in Cherokee county near the mountains, so that should say something. As long as the ground is still redclay and not rich black mountain soil, you have a chance of finding weilii

When searching new neighborhoods check around trees, pine islands, bushes, edges of sidewalk and driveways, and just along any "interface ecosystem" as paul stamets puts it.
