Inocybe species with bluing
    #11208086 - 10/08/09 03:54 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Newly Determined to find Psilocybe pelliculosa I grabbed my packing gear, my camera, and a bottle of water and hit the road. On the outskirts of Thurston County, WA, is an area that is frequented by campers and hikers.

It was around 10am and it was very cold today, probably one of the coldest days so far this Fall. Instead of being "judicial" and saying, "no" "nope" and "no way," I figured I had room to learn and it couldn't harm me to pick up a few extra mushrooms and observe them. While picking a very thin and rather unimportant looking mushroom as I was knelt down, my eyes stumbled upon this:

Fuck I'm out of quota for images. I just renewed and I'm waiting for it to get updated before I can upload these.

Hmm, how did you renew, I thought the only way to get more upload space was to become a supporter or delete images?

I honestly cringe whenever I have to go to those sites to view images. I feel like I've dirtied myself for some funny reason. I'm close to just emailing the images to one of you guys.

[url=https://files.shroomery.org/files/09-41/503430699-14.jpg]

[/url]

















Growing underneath a tree (unidentified as I'm not good at that yet) and growing in the middle of the woods on the edge of a trail. Substrate was mainly soil and what I think are pine needles or some kind of shorter, darker needle (you tell me guys). I had sticky stuff on my hands but supposedly pines don't grow in that area.

Aroma: It took me about twenty or thirty sniffs before I could determine what it was I was smelling. It was VERY pleasant and actually made me think of eating something very nice. Around the last smell I finally said, It smells like something I've bought at a nicer bakery.

Bruising: Upon picking immediate but difficult to observe bluing occurred closer to the base of the stem about an half an inch to an inch up. With more handling the bluing was more definitive but still lacking a class Cube type of bruising.

Average height was about 6 centimeters or 2.25 inches.

Average cap width was over 1/2 inch.

Additional Notes: The stem also bruised a rust color on a finer set of thick hair-like attachments on the surface of the stipe. At the very base there was a dark rust stain. The same was true of the cap; there were areas of rust on it.

When cut in half, the stem is not hollow and after about ten minutes the area turns to a rusty color.

The cap gills are white but I don't think the spore print will come out white. The gills are close together.

With the exception of that one cluster they were growing somewhat scattered and individually yet not too far off from each other. Collected about ten specimens. Stardate Oct 8th, 2009, in WA.

Thanks for the id, my friend. I was not even aware of that species existing. In case anyone else is new to it...

Hi Workman, I'd like to see a microscopy composite of these mushrooms, I always find Inocybe species to have interesting microscopic features!

I've just read Stamets' writeup of Inocybe and have to wonder if everyone in the mycological side of the house has concluded these are too dangerous to bioassay(?)

I agree, I would advise against consuming any Inocybe species, I would preserve some specimens for study though!
Nice images by the way:cool:

I can probably do a composite.  That species grows in my area so I'll look around.

The proper way to do it is to post the observation on mushroomobserver.org, then copy the image location, and paste the image URL between [img] tags.

The /640/ size is about right but you can also include thumbnail size or full size images.

I rarely upload images to the shroomery, almost all of my posts are from external sites.  By [img] including the images, no one has to click on each image to view it, which is the part that sucks.

Using mushroomobserver for hosting gives the additional benefit of having more eyes looking at it. 

I use photobucket for the images which don't always have mushrooms, like these

I agree that this is close to I. calamistrata.  There are several species in that group that look similar, with different odors and amounts of stem and cap shagginess.

Not to drudge up an old post but this collection is still around for KOH testing and I now need to ask for the best method to go about it. I have KOH, 500x microscope, camera, slides, slide covers, bottled water, and the specimens. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to mix a "dash" of KOH with a teaspoon of water, etc.

I don't think you can use KOH as an indicator of active chemicals, it's just used for rehydrating and making mounts of material for viewing through the microscope!

Use 5% weight / weight aqueous solution.

Please post some micrographs.

Alright I'm clearly going to have to eyeball the measurement which I'm good at but the micrograph thing with my unsteady hand is going to be difficult.

Here's what I understand to do:
1. Take the most strongly bluing area of a specimen and chop it into very fine pieces
2. Take a pinch of those fine pieces and place on a microscope slide
3. Add a few drops of the 95/5 water/koh solution and await a color reaction
4. Take photos at 500x under microscope and await further input

World Spirit is as symbiotic as any mushroom that has this built into their DNA. He awaits on the relations of his friends to be successful in both minor and major activities in Life.
