I live in Malmö just for 1 year and would like to know if there is any places here is Skåne where I could find Föränderlig tofsskivling (Pholiota mutabilis) and Karljohan (Boletus edulis). As I understood theer is no such mushroom here in Sweden as Armillariella mellea (honey mushroom på engelska)..
Maybe there is someone who could make a company to me one day?:) Nata
Nobody knows about any exact places where they are reliably found at all times. Pholiota mutabilis and Armillariella mellea are abundnant almost anywhere on dead or living trees. Boletus edulis can be found in beech forests and coniferous woods, for example the “Vombs fure” south of Lake Vomb.
You could join the excursions with “Puggehatten” from August, every Saturday and Monday evening. See http://www.puggehatten.se and check “Kalender”.
When you want to pick mushrooms in Skåne one of the first problems is to find a forest. This sound like a joke but it isn’t especially as you live in Malmö. The more north you go the more forest. However the landscape and type of forest in Skane vary much more than other parts of Sweden.
The closest forest I think is 10 min east of Malmö (with car). Another problem is that as there is not much forest in Skane the competition of forest is hard. To have a car is almost a necessity. I have heard that there exist some busses that takes you out in the forest. “Gröna bussen” or something. I live in Malmö too so maybe we can arrange a trip. I typically go out on Sundays with my “sambo”.
Thanks for your answer!
Yeah, I know that there is a problem with forests in Skåne:)))
But at least I know there is Torup and Häckerberga where I could go without a car since I dont have any:)
But it would be really nice to join you, if its possible:)
lets wait until summer comes and stay in touch:)
Hi, Natalia! I lived just about 7 km from Häckeberga some years ago, and it’s its such a fantastic area. Maybe you know this, but I really want to recommend the path that goes around the Häckeberga lake. Following that path you pass both through beech forests and grassy hills.
And in the fall, if you’re really lucky, you can find the Lentinus tigrinus (Tigermussling). Häckeberga lake is the only known location for that fungi in Sweden. There is usually also chanterelles (though the competition for them is extremely hard :) as well as boletes.
I just want to ask if some of you has heard this kind of shroom called Psilocybe Caerulipes also know as Blue-Foot? I was reading some articles about this kind shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. Like this one from:https://www.trufflemagic.com/blog/psilocybe-caerulipes/ .They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike other shrooms this one is less intense. In one article that I’ve read Psilocybe Caerulipes influences the prefontral cortex thats responsible for for differentiating thoughts, consequences of actions, and social control. Magic mushroom are use on reducing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this kind shroom and could possible be used as an alternative medicine Thanks
