Yeah it is. I'm envious of all those oysters too! I gotta go for a hike in the highlands for such finds around here. Which I really love to do, but it's always about time with me :(

Hey guys! In picture #9, i posted primordia of Volvariela volva (Straw mushroom) on napier grass. I was so happy to have those primordia.

Now i got these instead...

Inky Shaggy Mane! Darn! Where have all my straw mushies go?!?

I thought i could make a great Volva harvest...
----------

But i think i know what happened.
*I just dried the napier grass and boiled them in a water with rice bran.
*After 1 hour of boiling, i took them out and place them in plastic bags, and then spawned them(with a ricehull tek spawn). I placed them inside a thightly closed garbage bag for incubation.
*After a 8 days, healthy mycellia colization is seen(pics 1 & 2).
*So, i took them out so that it could start to fruit. After 4 days, primordia is visible(pics 4 & 5).
*Three more days later, i got the Shaggy Mane! Inky Caps! Shaggy Mane! Inky Caps!

Where's my Volva mushies?!?
----------
The wild napier grass i got may have already carried lots of Inky Cap spores. I had realized that 1 hour of boiling isn't enough in killing those wild spores in the grass. They must have overgrown my Volvariella.
----------
The next time i'll be using the napier grass, i will sterilized them for at least four hours in my "oil drum sterilizer".
----------
This would again be considered my learning experience...

(i'll upload later the pictures of these inkies at their inky stage)

Those aren't shaggy mane, but they are coprinus. I have them popping up all over the place in the forest behind my house now. That fuzz on the cap will go away after a few days. Too bad that happend to your grow though. A lot of grows often get "contaminated" with some type of coprinus.

Now... here's one interesting specimen i got.

I really don't know if its a mushroom or not but i does look like a tiny mushroom to me. Its texture is somewhat like those of a Jew's Ears(black fungus) at speciment #9. It seems they are related. I also wasnt able to get "visible" prints of this one.

This one grew on a moist cement slab. Picture 3 is its view underneat(not a good shot though).

What is this?

...got lots of Coprinus species in here but i have never found real Shaggy Manes like what you have there...

I hope i could find one like that too... I've read they're also edible..

Here's my 25th specimen photo. I got this one inside our company's mini-forest.

25
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159225586
At first, i think this one's related to the Clavaria sp. Later, i've came across the Ramaria sp. or the Coral Fungus. Its sturdy little branches are black, and the tips are sharp in golden yellow color.

(i could have posted the second picture but it's kind'a blurry)

This picture i got is much nearer to the Coral Fungus. However, i've never find a Black Ramaria sp. in the internet before. I took one branch for a closer look(see 3rd & 4th pics). Is this really one of those Black Coral Fungi?

For you reference, here's a link to a Ramaria sp. :http://www.ne.jp/asa...keri/cokeri.htm
See Ramaria cokeri.

And here's to a Clavaria sp. : http://www-biol.pais...s/Clavaria.html
See Clavaria zollingen

Anybody care to give proper ID on this one too?

Hmm, that red specimen looks like a Jelly Drop Cup of some sort and the coral fungus appears to be Carbon Antler Asco. Neither of which are edible.

Yeah, you're right Lazlo! Specimen #24 is a cup fungi. Thanks the the keywords you give. Browsing up the net, #24 seems to be a Cheilymenia stercorea. Here's the link to the website and pictrue i found: http://www.mushroome..._stercorea.html
Posted Image
The pictures tells me that they are very similar. Even the size specifications are almost the same. But that website states the Cheilymenia stercorea growns only on "dung". My speciment grew on a moist cement slab. ?!?

Specimen #25 is indeed Carbon Antlers or the Xylaria hypoxylon or the Candle Snuff (...i think...). Found them at these links: http://www.uoguelph....NGI/xylaria.htm and http://pinguicula.ty...uff_fungus.html

Posted Image
Although i have not taken additional pictures, some of those i have here really looked like this one.

...any objections, suggestions, second motions, ... !?!?

"Salamat din." - - - this is our Filipino version of "Thanks you also"; boldly pronounced as it is.

...the word "salamat" alone already means 'thank you'.

Thanks for droppin' by guys.

Here's the next one in line.

This one is somewhat related to specimen picture#9 at page. And i believe this one here is surely a Reshi.

The picture below grew about 6ft above on the living trunk of a Molave Tree(a hardwood). That black one below it is a dried/dead reshi.

Im just wondering...how could a new reshi grow OVER a dead reshi? Spores would have dropped downwards, shouldn't it grow under it?

http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1159326376

Picture #1 & #2 as attached is seen to be growing on the dead roots of the very same Molave tree; while pictures #3,& 5 grew 6ft up the trunk.

...did i give the right ID on this one?

Hey Guys!

Its been raining here in my place lately.
And shrooms above on specimen #14, #15 & #16 are poping out everywhere like daisies in the fields.

Specially this one:
http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1157349889

I hope you could help me out ID this one. They are very tempting. ..the fresh smell, the firmness, the whiteness,the beauty, the quantities(there's lots of them here!).... If you were here, you might say they are cultured. But they are wild shrooms growing like weeds....

Actually, i had picked some and sauteed them in garlic and oil. But i have not eaten them because nobody had confirmed yet if these really are edible. I had them frozen in the fridge.

Those appear to be some sort of a Clitocybe possibly. I wouldn't eat them.
