My daughters found these. They keep on telling me they found "Shiitake" mushrooms as they have seen on my shiitake cultivation book. Im getting ready for its cultivation 'coz i'll be having a culture of it from a friend here to Mycotopia.
These were growing under the roots of a Molave Tree. But, im not actually sure if its growing on the roots or on the grown under the roots. I found other species of these growing on soil though.
Caps are very fragile. They break right away even with less pressure when holding or touching them. They do have rings. Gills are very dark brown and are not connected to the stipe.
It grows up to 7cm tall. Its cap size is 6cm in diameter.
Anybody here might know what these are? Are these useful in any way they might be?

Here's another one i found at the lumberyard of the company i work with.
It seems to be camouflaged by a leopard skin.
Its growing on the ground on what seems to be a mixture of nature composted sawdust and ordinary soil. Its cap is about 8cm across. It stands at about 7cm tall. It has no rings. Its gills are not connected to the stipe. Gills are also white; so are the spores.
What might this be? Any ID guys?

Now, here's my 38th specimen photo.
I saw this yesterday afternoon. It's growing on the remains of a dead banana stem. It wasnt in full bloom yet. I formed like a shiny dark brown egg. Too bad i was not able to bring my camera that time.
Today, i expected it to be still in that interesting egg form. But now, i found it in full bloom already! Oh my! Its really huge.
Its cap is about 11cm. It stands at about 11.5cm also. Its cap is not fragile. Its gills are not directly connected to the stipe. Gill color is brownish; may because its spores are brown. The stipe is not hollow. And its has no rings.
See that part at the base, its that "egg" im referring to. It broke-out from there. (see attached pic#8). But that's the lower part of the egg. The upper part of the egg was its cap unbloomed.
And by the way, its spores are indeed brown.
I almost forgot... i found this along the barbed wire fence inside the company i worked with.
Employees here told me that this is a edible specie they locally call as "Uyaping"(read as "o-ya-ping"). They also added that if a mushroom grows on spent banana leaves or stem, its edible. In fact, they have also been eating this kind of mushroom.
This time, i do hope you the topia experts would give me a specific ID on this one. Please guys, help me...

Nice new avatar you've got there. And great thread too!

I tried searching over the net for some matches of it under the Lepiota family, but i found nothing. So, im gonna search once more...
By the way, could you please give me (post here) a list of those mushies that start out as "Eggs"...

I found this in front of my Aunt's house. Its actually growing on the cut trunk of a Gemilena Tree.
It really looks like Oysters, or Angel's Wings Oysters. Its softer than those clitoris (i mean Clithocybes at#14,15 & 16) above. Gills are connected to the stype base. Sporeprints are white.
I had already saved dried specimen for future requests.
Any positive ID on this one?

It says there that this is a Leucocoprinus sp..
Its on this link: http://www.mycena.sf...oprinus_sp.html
I believe this is the same one as i have at #29 above:
Would i be right if i say that specimen #29 is a member of Leucocoprinus sp.?

I found these over the net:
It came out from an "egg" like this:
I believe that specimen #38 is Volvariela Gloiocephala. Also know us the Stubble Rosegill. It says at Wikipedia.org that its cap can grow up to 14cm in diameter... and its edible too!
Pictures 1 & 2 are from this website: http://www.hlasek.co...ala_ac8464.html
Those "egg" pictures are from here: http://www.mushroome...ella_sp_01.html
...and here's a link to that wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia....la_gloiocephala
...I hope somebody would give a second motion....

...and yes, its too early to tell what kind of mushies are these. I got to wait for them to open....
And since i like the way it looked on the photo, i just wanna post them here...
Posted 13 November 2006 - 01:48 AM
These are actually the very same species i posted as specimen #38. Again, I believe these are Volvareila gloiocephala.
Pls do correct me if im wrong...
I found these deliciously growing on dead banana stems just at the back of our company canteen. They looked very meaty and juicy. My officemate grabbed them for a quick suatee.
And yes... i got additional brown prints from these before i gave them all to my officemate.
I'll be expecting them to grow again on the same spot latter after a little rain showers....
