magic in cow patties???
    #10009108 - 03/20/09 06:47 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

I have just recently picked some mushrooms from my friends pasture that is heavelly popullated with cows and in turn cow patties (POOP).  So anyways I picked these mushrooms from on top and underneath the patties.  When I was younger I always remembered hearing you can pick wild mushrooms but you need to be very educated and know exactly what to look for, this I know to be 100% true.  I also have heard that a fail safe way was to pick the shrooms from cow patties, this I don't know to be true.
    SO my question is does anyone know the truth to this urban legend?  And also do these shrooms look like magic?  Oh and the spore print color is a blackish purple.

Looks like you have a mixed collection, none of those are active.

The first one is Coprinellus micaceus.  It is the worlds most common mushroom.

The others are Agrocybe or something really boring like that.

Psilocybin mushrooms never grow on cow patties in California.  This time of year, you should be looking in horse dung for Panaeolus cinctulus and on logs and wood chips for green staining Gymnopilus species like G. luteofolius.  When the temperatures drop in the fall you will be able to find potent Psilocybes in wood chip landscaping and in coastal dune grasses.

So then would you say in horse dung only the magic ones will grow?  Or more than one species?

What forum was that?

I need to have a little talk with them.

You will find about a dozen species growing in horse dung.

Only one of them is magic, the others are nontoxic or toxic.

The first pic you posted (of the worlds most common mushroom) is not poisonous or harmful in any way.

The others the pics aren't good enough to see exactly what they are.  They might be toxic.  If you take nice clear macro shots of them someone will be able to tell you what species they are, and from there its easy to look up whether or not they are poisonous.

It was fungifun.com forum.  The second picture is just a dried version of the third and the forth is the bottom side of the third.  By clear macro shot what do you mean?  I can get a pic not as blurry.

I have been trying like hell to educate myself and Alan you said the first shroom pictured is Coprinellus micaceus which I have found and it does look very similar but I can't find anything saying that its habitat is cow manure.  I appreciate your opinion everyone!  How sure are you about the first one?
  Once again i'm not doubting you because you have way more experience than me i'm just trying to learn.

If they are growing out of manure its not micaceus, its some other inky cap species.

Not to disagree with everyone , but the second pic looks a little like a dried Copelandia cyanescens that I find sometimes.  I'm not telling you to eat it.

So I was talking to a friend and he was telling me that there friend goes hunting up in northern cali and they get the shrooms from cow patties.  So the statement " magic shrooms don't grow in cali from manure"  Where did you gather that from?
  "it's not  micaceus"  What's that mean exactly??

He isn't telling the truth or you misunderstood and he gets from from cow patties in the gulf coast region.  Or maybe there is something out there that we don't know about.

The internets.

Coprinellus micaceus is a very common mushroom that grows on wood.  There are also many common dung Coprinellus species, but they are usually slightly different from the wood rotters.

And like a few other Panaeolus species, too. There are no Copelandia cyanescens in Cali, either.
