I wouldn’t be surprised if it can fruit terrestrially, but it has not yet been collected on land. I am collecting species of Psathyrella sensu strictu in Oregon to compare. I also wouldn’t be surprised if there are other underwater gilled mushrooms— in South America, Asia, even elsewhere in North America. I have been looking around Oregon and do see several aquatic ascomycetes: Vibrissea truncorum, V. filisporia, Cudoniella clavus (and occasionally Scutellinia scutellata!) I’d contend that there are lots of great mycological discoveries made each year— and many many more to be made. Mush_Obs may facilitate valuable research network communications and interactions. Carpe Fungi!
Truly one of the greatest mycological finds of the century. Glad to see your images finally here, where they can be viewed at a resolution appropriate to their importance.
Have you followed up any leads on other aquatic agarics? I’m told there are rumors of some that dwell beneath waterfalls in parts of South America.
Cool article and post by it’s discoverer! Good job Jonathan Frank!
Is the entire fruiting cycle underwater?
I’ve heard/read about this underwater Psath. But seeing the photos is absolutely astonishing.
