Mushrooms that bruise blue and aren't active... * 1
    #1769040 - 08/01/03 01:17 PM (11 years, 1 month ago)

GG had a good suggestion in another thread... Let's compile a list of mushrooms that bruise bluish to greenish that aren't active. After this thread becomes fairly inactive I'll add a document to the FAQ with the information.

I'll start things off with some of the obvious ones...

many Boletes (some of which are poisonous!)
several Lactarius species (around Lactarius deliciosus)
Phylloporus species (gilled boletes)
Leptonia incana


OK, add others that you may know below...

Happy mushrooming!

this one's not a blue bruiser, but frequently enough asked about that it might be worth mentioning: Stropharia aeruginosa

Heres a good one, and a few decent pics... The gilled bolete, I found it last year, and will probably find it again this year when it comes up. This one had me going for a minute, I'd never seen a "gilled" bolete before.








LK,

Some Psilocybes that dont bruise blue are of course Psilocybe Coprophilla and another would of course be the Pan Sub,Just a few that are found alot that the beginners dont think are active just because they dont bruise blue,Peace!

amanitaman: you got it backward. the thread is about mushrooms that do bruise blue and are not active, not about psilocybes that don't bruise blue. btw; i hope you realize that P. coprophila aren't active.

1.) don't sweat it.
2.) not correct. P. coprophila is not active at all. i have eaten them before, in large amounts and gotten nothing more signifigant than diharea[sp?].

Concretefeet is correct and I want to mention here that there are more than 100 non-active Psilocybe shrooms which do not bruise blue and are not psilocybian. P. montana, P. Uda, P. subcoprophila, are but a few.

I must also mention that Dr. Gaston Guzman is very sick at the moment and is attempting to revise and update his large monograph, "The Genus Psilocybe."

mjshroomer.

He has also has about twelve new psychoactive species which he has not attempted to write taxonomy on due to other works.

I would also like to caution future shroom hunters regarding the buing boletes and the bluing Stropharias Paul Stamets notes in his book.

Boletes are 99% spongie porus bottoms and need not be described along with bluing psilocybe or other bluing shrooms which are psilocybian since those other shrooms ahve gills and not porus bottoms under their caps.

The bluing boletes should be noted for those interested in edible shrooms.

Others such as P. cyanea, P. aeruginosa should be noted that the bluing in those shrooms are not a stain buit the natural color of the actual shroom.

And then the edible lacterius delicioiosis (Sp?) which is very edible has green stains to blue green stains in them but are a chioice edible shroom.

Also,whatabout the ink cap(coprinus species)I have picked those before thinking that they might be psychoactive.One reason i thought this was because the stem when damaged turned a slight greenish/blue color.But when i noticed that the cap turned to ink after drying i threw them out because i didnt really feel like eating black liquid.
But anyways my main point is that this is another mushroom that turns blue and is not psychoactive,Thanks and happy hunting!
