Fresh imported Craterellus cornucopioides in Australia
« on: October 19, 2011, 08:54:08 AM »
Anyone interested in a group buy of black trompets?

Worowa? BLJ?  I'm looking at you two! 

A quick spore print attempt and then we all try and get tissue cultures happening???

Nup, they're called black chanterelles but they aren't Cantherallus, they're Craterellus cornucopioides and they apparently aren't mycorhizal.

This dude in Adelaide sells them too, for any SA friends

I might as well post the direct link to Waimea's page:

Nope, no cultivation research to post.

And BLJ is back in town, but only just...battling with some jet lag I suspect.

Hmmm, I think Porcini is Boletus edulis, which is ectomycorrhizal.
A bit different from Craterellus cornucopiodies.
I'ld be keen to try propagating either species-might check out DJs and grab a pack...if I have any joy, I'll pass out free plates for people to play with.

found this on mushroom expert.com

Ecology:
 Saprobic and potentially involved in some kind of relationship with moss, in my opinion. Species of Craterellus are officially labeled as mycorrhizal, but this is because of their association with Cantharellus in now-outdated taxonomic schemes, rather than because of their documented association with the rootlets of trees, and I will eat my hat if they are actually exclusively mycorrhizal. Craterellus cornucopioides grows alone, scattered, or gregariously in eastern North America, but typically in tightly packed clusters of four or more mushrooms on the West Coast (see the fifth photo, by Hugh Smith). It is widely distributed, and reported under hardwoods and conifers.

Seeing as we hijacked the other thread after we saw black trumpets for sale from www.waimeatrading.com.au i though i'd just split the thread apart.

I might call DJs and then call in a favour to get someone to get me some.

I have some dried from california. They are same family as chanterelles, and there are obvious reasons why this and other chanterelloids are phyllogenetically distinguished as cantherellus or craterellus, I never thought that saprobicity would be one of them even though I've read it in a couple of places. Maybe they, like morels, are selectively mycorhizal?I have only ever known them to be directly associated with deciduous forest, in areas of , or very close to surface water paths. I have found them in moss but that is( or was)  the rare case.

I didn't get any spore prints or tissue samples upon some people's return from OS but they did spoil me with a few mushrooms related items!

A pharmacists identification catalogue, a 395 page field guide (both in french), some marzipan shaped into mushrooms and a shrooming knife.  Happy day!

This mushroom occurs wild in Emerald, Victoria. I haven't found any but I have seen pictures of ones that were collected there a few years back under Oak I believe.

Hey NSF,

I am French....are you actually reading your mushroom books? I would :) I also collect them (my best book is a 1914 encyclopedia with beautiful colour photos from the American Society in Paris)

I would trade them for some spawn or whatever else you might want?

Lau I can't read them :(

I better not show you my old second hand books that I collected on my last trip to France, you might REALLY want those. 

I'll have a think about whether or not I want to trade them...I haven't given it any thought before. 

1914 encyclopedia...wow! 

Maybe you should seek out a reprint of this, it's on my wishlist: http://www.abebooks.com/book-search/title/fungi-hypogaei/

Here's another thread where I posted some photos of the plates from it: http://ediblemushroom.net/index.php/topic,549.msg3190.html#msg3190
