Southwest Ohio
    #12849835 - 07/04/10 10:15 PM (4 years, 19 days ago)

This year I'm out again looking for any actives which might inhabit Southwest Ohio. Despite how much I've read about these mushrooms, I'd like to know from real hunters what their opinion is on the most abundant active mushroom in my area of Ohio is. I've read that the blue foots/feet are in season....but let's face it, I doubt I will ever find the blue foots/feet!

I found blue foots in OH, even though I'm not anywhere nearly from there. Gyms are out there. Pan Subbs. The best areas are wooded areas that have elevation, moisture, and shade. The ovoids or whatever they call them now tend to slow down in fruiting after late may-early June. They might not hardly be around at all at this time. They can come back again in the fall. Meanwhile, I'd look for the others. But if I lived in Ohio, I'd be picking edibles. There are some good ones in the high elevated areas around there.

Ive hunted SW Ohio for two seasons.  There are no really common active species here.  Although they are around if you know when and where to look.  In the middle of summer isn't the best time.

You would be better off learning to grow your own.

You could always just go for the edibles, there are almost always something good year round in terms of edibles.

You're too late for the psilocybe ovoideocystidiata(blue-foots) but they are really common when they are in season. Check out the official 2010 psilocybe ovoideocystidiata thread, they are everywhere...when they are in season. It won't be long until the "original blue-foots"(p. caerulipes) are in season, but they really are rare IMO. Pan Subbs are your best bet this time of year, in your area

It sounds like from what has been said that i will have the most luck with p subbs. I will be looking. I'm in an elevated forest with ravines, and a stream and lots of shade. Do you think I need to look in hay composts for subbs? And do blue foots generally grow near water?

From Wikipedia:

Panaeolus cinctulus (subbalteatus) is a cosmopolitan species that grows solitary to gregarious to cespitose on compost piles, well fertilized lawns and gardens, and rarely directly on horse dung.[2]  Spring - Fall . It grows abundantly after rain.

I have no experience with Subbalteatus (unfortunately), but I would def check out any hay composts in your area :thumbup:

I don't really think Psilocybe caerulipes are rare It's just the trouble in finding the best habitat and keep an eye out for how tiny they are.

And Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata is definitely not common in SW Ohio.  It's here but it's rare.  As far as I know only one person who posts here found any in SW Ohio this season.  I have been searching the Ohio River for two seasons and have yet to find one.  I've done hours and hours of research and many more hours and days out in the field trying to find them.  They are not common around here. 

Now in SE Ohio, that's another story and you will see that if you read each seasons official Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata thread.

Best area's to have luck are along the bends of rivers because wood piles up nicely in these areas.
