Not the first mushroom that I cultivated, but certainly one of the very first. I used to have a seedling birch tree on the corner of my house. I got one of these sporocarps from the OMS Fall show that year (1987 as I recall), and used it to inoculate the birch tree. Had Paxillus involutus for several years until I had to kill the tree: too big to have less than 1 foot from the house, and starting to bulge up the sidewalk there. These are destined to be used for bioremediation, I think. Paxillus may be poisonous, but it is useful in certain purposes. And, it helps grow some tree species.
