Agaricales > Amanitaceae > Amanita . The stipe is white and is 80–200 mm (3–8 in) long and 10–20 mm (0.4–0.8 in) wide. Please login or register to post messages and view our exclusive members-only content. 00:18:36.10 and Amanita thiersii, which is an Amanita I haven't talked about yet, but is a decomposer. 4. [12], It is similar in appearance to a number of Amanita species. [7] Bas created the stirps (an informal ranking below species level) Thiersii, in which he placed S. thiersii along with A. albofloccosa, A. aureofloccosa, A. foetens and A. . At first the cap is covered by the soft, white fragmentary remains of the universal veil, which become more widely separated as the cap expands. In an attempt to identify the genes involved in these processes, researchers at the United States Department of Energy and University of Wisconsin are jointly working to sequence the S. thiersii genome and to compare it with that of Amanita bisporigera, a species which forms mycorrhizal relationships with tree[19] and which has already been partly sequenced. Microscopic Features: Spores 7–10 µm; globose; smooth; amyloid. Retrieved from the MushroomExpert.Com Web site: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/amanita.html © MushroomExpert.Com It often has a broad low umbo. The gillsare variable in length and number and are de… The cap's flesh may be 10 mm (0.4 in) thick. The fungus is said to taste oily bitter[11] or bitter metallic. The illustrated and described collections are from Indiana and Illinois. ... A psilocybin mushroom is one of a polyphyletic group of fungi that contain any of various psychedelic compounds, including psilocybin, psilocin, and baeocystin. Welcome to the Shroomery Message Board! [6], S. thiersii may be gathered inadvertently and thought to be edible due to the fact that it grows on lawns among grasses. Amanita thiersii is a saprotrophic fungus expanding its range in the United States. They are free from the stipe and vary from crowded to widely spaced. They hope to better understand the genetic pathways involved in the evolution of ectomycorrhizal associations. It can be distinguished by its darker coloration and more warted appearance. . A shaggy, drooping ring is present which is often shed before maturity. Then again, prevailing winds here move from west to east, and if spore dispersal via wind currents is the mode of range expansion, this would provide an alternative explanation. Ecology: Saprobic in grasses; growing alone, scattered, gregariously, or in arcs and fairy rings in lawns and meadows; summer; south of the Great Lakes (see discussion above). The species appears to have a northern limit, perhaps associated with temperature, below the Great Lakes; it has not yet appeared in northern Illinois, even though Chicagoland is much closer to my area than Baltimore. Unlike Chlorophyllum molybdites, however, Amanita thiersii has white gills at maturity—and it is covered from head to toe with shaggy, sticky universal veil material. To determine levels of expression of bgl by Amanita species, cultures of three species, A. thiersii, A. cokeri and A. crenulata, were grown with media using the same basal salts as described above with either 2% cellobiose or 2% glucose as sole carbon sources. by Michael Kuo. Everyone is more familiar with orange Gymnopilus species but lilac is more typical of G. thiersii. Since a long time, three types of mushrooms namely, A. virosa, Russula vesca and Russula persicina, have been identified in Iran [].Recent studies have shown that in Iran, A. virosa is more prevalent than A. phalloides [15,, , , ]. Thiers (1957) originally named this species "Amanita alba," but was apparently unaware that the name was already in use; thus Bas (1969) was forced to change the name of the species in order to give it a legitimate name. [10][15], The species is suspected of being toxic as is the case in most of its close relatives. ... Lookalikes: Other Amanita species. [6][12], Saproamanita thiersii inhabits lawns, pastures and prairies throughout the Mississippi River Basin. They are not attached to the stipe, which is 8–20 cm (3–8 in) long and about 1 cm (0.4 in) thick, with a white ring. [4] He named it Amanita alba but that name was disallowed as it had already been used for another species. In some specimens, the stipe bruises to a yellow color. Transcription factor that may regulate the expression of the gene cluster that mediates the biosynthesis of psilocybin, a psychotropic tryptamine-derived natural product (PubMed:28763571). washington, texas, october 6, 2013 /2013/1287/08m similar garden guides | Page 15/88 1078416. Lamellar trama bilateral; subhymenium cellular. Clockwise, from top left, Amanita muscaria subsp. [6] In an analysis, both monokaryotic (one nucleus per cell) and dikaryotic (two nuclei per cell) strains were isolated from fruit bodies. What Is This Thing in My Yard (Garden, House)? [5][17], The fruit bodies of S. thiersii grow during the mid or late summer until early fall. Stem: 10–19 cm long; 1–2 cm wide; sturdy; equal above a very slightly enlarged base; with a skirtlike, white ring; bald above the ring; below the ring shaggy like the cap; volva powdery and indistinct; basal mycelium white. It can be distinguished from other white fungi growing in grassland by its fluffy cap, though the white veil fragments may eventually get washed away by rain. [12] A case of poisoning that may have been caused by S. thiersii has been reported from the state of Puebla, Mexico. Thanks to Ron Kerner for collecting, documenting, and preserving Amanita thiersii for study; his collection is deposited in The Herbarium of Michael Kuo. Amanita thiersii [ Basidiomycota > Agaricales > Amanitaceae > Amanita. This site contains no information about the edibility or toxicity of mushrooms. Cap: 3–15 cm; egg-shaped to convex at first, becoming broadly convex or nearly flat; soft; dry; covered with powdery, shaggy, universal veil material (sometimes washed away by rain) that comes off easily; white; the margin hung with veil remnants. Saproamanita thiersii (formerly Amanita thiersii), commonly called Thiers' lepidella, is a North-American saprotrophic basidiomycete fungus in the genus Saproamanita. Both cellobiose and glucose were filter sterilized to prevent degradation of cellobiose through heat sterilization. [18] Today it occurs in nine states including Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, Ohio, Kansas and Illinois. Thiers amanita has a white, gilled cap, and the stem is large, white, sticky, and shaggy. On my way to the woods, just after parking, I immediately found a couple amanitas, including this beautiful young mushroom.

[9] Analysis using stable carbon isotopes has proved that this mushroom is saprotrophic in nature, unlike the other mycorrhizal Amanitas. [5], The odor of this mushroom is indistinct but with age can become unpleasant, like that of decay or cheese. The mushroom grows in lawns, pastures and prairies. Using a multi-gene phylogenetic reconstruction of symbiotic (EM) and free-living (SAP) Amanita species, we determined the number of origins of the EM symbiosis within the genus. The bulb is 25 mm (1.0 in) long and 22 mm (0.9 in) wide. Mycologia 104: 22-33. It is psychoactive, but hard to use and nowhere near as hallucinogenic as the Psilocybe. The cap of this small mushroom is white and convex, measuring 35–100 mm (1.4–3.9 in) and covered by volval remnants. [3], Sapromanita thiersii was first described in 1957 by Harry Delbert Thiers, an American mycologist, who had spotted it on a campus lawn when he was a student. thiersii. It is a white mushroom originally described from Texas but today found in nine states of North America. [20], This research has shown that there was a single origin of ectomycorrhizal symbiosis in the genus Amanita. The erowid article cited above leads with A muscaria.
