Shrooms in my Backyard
Posted 22 August 2006 - 09:19 PM
Most of these shrooms are strangers to me, but they are mushrooms...
i hope you guys could tell me what mushrooms are these so that i could research there "properties".
I found these just a very few feet from my house. They grew just beside a termite hill. They seemed to be glowy during the night.
I hope you could tell me its name...
...and by the way, i'm from Cebu, Philippines. My location might help in identifying thes shrooms...

Instead of having the picture hosted offsite, you should upload it to the servers here, that way it can be included in the image browser :)

and yes, please attach the picture here at topia...
Scroll down a bit below the msg type box, and click manage attachments. Select the pictures to upload, and upload them. Then you can include it in the msg itself by scrollin down a bit below the typing box there again at the same spot, and right click the attachment filenames in the list which should now be displayed there. Select copy shortcut, and you've now got the shortcut for the image. (windows pc's). Then to display in your msg, do the same as you did, link in a picture address, and paste in your new attachment link.
Sorry to hijack, back to our originally scheduled programming :D

Just based on those pics I'd say they are a type of Marasmius based on the little I can see of the gills. That is a weak guess at best.

Its not actually growing on rocks, its actually a living tree trunk. We call this tree the Yellow Bell Tree. Its flowers are shaped like bells and are the favorite of the Flower Picker Birds.
This tree is quite interesting 'coz i sometimes find Chantereles, Reishi, Turkey Tails, Rat Ears and other bracket mushrooms growing on its dead trunks and branches.
Doobydoo, thanks. Now i know how to upload these pictures here in Topia.
Attached are some pictures of it under the cap... This might help...
...sorry about the resolution... i only got a 3.2MP Kodak CX6330.

maybe a luminecent mushroom..?..;)
I remember as a boy being on a hunting trip just as it was getting pretty dark we passed a bed of wild mushrooms that were glowing a pale green kind of like the old plastic glow-in-the-dark toys. I wondered if that was a natural mushroom property or had those mushrooms absorbed something that made them glow. It wasn't bright but it was definately a glow.

... had those mushrooms absorbed something that made them glow. It wasn't bright but it was definately a glow...
...yeah. This one also seemed to be glowy but not that bright. It must have absorbed light during the day and use them during the night.
...one of those natural wonders that is...
And by the way, i tried two times getting sporeprints on this one. I used white paper 'coz i expected to get colored sporeprints. But... i didn't get any...!? How come? Is it possibly that there are mushroom species that don't give-off spores? Or maybe i just used two too matured specimen?

This one is on a small dead trunk of a Neem Tree. I think its a wild Oyster Mushroom. I found this beside a bamboo fence along the road on my way to work. I believe this one is getting matured.
Actually, this has been growing in the same location for the past months. It's MycoTopia who makes me aware of these wild mushrooms. So i want to take photos of them everytime i see some so that i could post them here. And i love doing it anyway...
I hope you guys could confirm right away if this is really an edible Oyster or Chanterelle so that i could take them before they die...
