A little help, please
    #11184460 - 10/05/09 02:36 AM (8 years, 3 months ago)

Groups A and B both were growing in well mowed grass/moss in a baseball field.  Group C was found on pure moss only.

Group A's gills are yellowish brown meeting at the apex of the cap.  Group B and C's are both grey, with C being slightly darker grey and more flush with the base of the cap.

Group A: Usually no longer than two inches, extremely thin, not terrible brittle, brownish red, bruising very dark at base in some specimens almost purple/black
Group B:  Stems between one to three inches, rigid, yet more delicate the largest specimens maybe an eight of an inch thick.  Bruises dark brown very dark at base purplish red.
Group C:  Half inch to two inches, not brittle, brown with whitish "sheen"  Bruises very dark brown/purplish black at base

Group A:  Light brown caramel colored conical cap no larger than half an inch in diameter drying out to very light beige visible "ribs".
Group B:  Brown caramel color dry, from dome shape to flat with edges scrunching in from what looks like drying out.  Bruises heavily brown largest about an inch and a half down to an eighth of an inch in diameter.

Spore print color:
Group A:  Faint, but looks like it's brownish yellow, definitely has room to develop though. 
Group B:  Again, faint but looks like it is a shade of purple/brown.
Group C:  Heavy Purple.

All 3 mushrooms bruise to an extent with Group C bruising the darkest and bluest of them all.

Other information:
So now the story:

For as long as I have cared about such things, I have heard about there being LBM's that were supposedly psychedelic inhabiting a local elementry school's field.  I have looked in the past, and found some before, never ate them or if I did, not enough, never ID'd them or got serious.  So today, I decided to really go up there, and have a go, get whatever there were to be had, seeing as all I could sensibly see growing there were liberty caps, and their season is coming to a close.  Like I said, on multiple accounts, I have heard people say that they have either personally, or had friends that tripped out on a substantial handful of these small mushrooms.  Today while picking I thought I was picking just one kind, but it came to my attention that I was probably picking three, or at least two.  So folks, if I could have your input on this... 

One of these is allegedly psychedelic, and I am %95 certain that Group C is Psilocybe montana, or mountain moss psilocybe, which is not active?  It is bruising very heavily, and I was just curious to know if anyone has played around with P. montana. 

I am most frustrated by now, as I have been an avid hunter for 5 years, and have found not a single wild active mushroom.

Group A:

Group B:

and Group C (P. montana?)

Thanks guys

Can you post some more pictures of these mushrooms with pics of the spore prints?

A does look like a Galerina or Conocybe.

Not sure about the others.
