Are the active wild mushrooms that grow in Pennsylvania in Audubon's guide?
    #11184160 - 10/05/09 01:11 AM (8 years, 18 days ago)

I live in Pennsylvania, and I am about to buy a mushroom field guide.  Though I am interested in all types of mushrooms, I am especially interested in identifying active ones in my state.  I thing I am going to buy the Audubon society's guide because I hear it is especially good for the east coast and it has good pictures. 

My question is, can somebody who has the book and let me know it if has pictures and/or descriptions of the active mushrooms that grow in PA?

According to Shroomery's page, "Which psilocybin mushrooms grow wild in my area?", the active wild mushrooms in PA are:


Gymnopilus aeruginosus
Gymnopilus junonius
Gymnopilus luteofolius
Gymnopilus luteus
Panaeolus cinctulus
Pluteus salicinus
Psilocybe caerulipes
Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata
Psilocybe semilanceata (very rare)


I am asking these questions because I would hate to order it online, have it arrive, and realize that none of the active species that grow in my area are covered in the book.

That book has three actives in it from that state. You gotta love it for all the shrooms though, not just the active ones.

The Audubon will have:

Panaeolus subbalteatus (which the Shroomery lists as Panaeolus cinctulus)
Gymnopilus spectabilis (which the Shroomery lists as Gymnopilus junonius)
Psilocybe caerulipes
Psilocybe semilanceata

We have a few PA hunters here that will be more than glad to help you.  :wink:

At least Panaeolus cinctulus grows everywhere. Even in Pennsylvania.

From the digging around I've done, it's pretty rare even in NY.  Gotta go way north.  Tbh, I'm a bit perplexed by P. semilanceata's range.

Audubon's a pretty good one; just don't pay too much for it.

I'm gonna actually try and find some Psilocybe Semilanceata after the first frosts Danny, so if I find any I'll be sure to upload the pics. I live in Northeastern PA btw.

Thanks for the help!  I will buy the book online tonight! (unless anyone here has a copy they are looking to sell?)


What would some fellow pennsyltucky folk say are the most commonly found active mushies in the state? I live in north central pa.

Of course! I am excited to start identifying all sorts of interesting fungus.  I just want to make sure I get a guide that has active ones in my area, as well!



EDIT-----------------------------------------


Does anyone know anything about this book?  Is it more detailed for the area than the Audubon guide?

You can look for Gymnopilus luteus, Gymnopilus spectabilis, Panaeolus subbalteatus and Psilocybe ovoideocystiata.

That book focuses on the most common mushrooms.  I think the only active it lists is Gymnopilus spectabilis.

I forgot about those.  I should mention you can look for any mushroom anywhere.  Just because it hasn't been found doesn't mean it can't be.

I know a guy that found P. baeocystis in Maine.  Can you imagine that?

You should start looking for Gymnopilus species,and Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata.We Pennsylvanians might have a few more weeks of the fall ovoid season left,and Gyms usually fruit till about November,depending on weather.As Mr mushrooms said,Just start checkin everything out,you may find something interesting.
