Mushroom I.D
    #11269905 - 10/18/09 09:03 AM (8 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys. Ok, so a friend of a friend recommended a place to go mushroom hunting. After a little drive we found a place with a lot of mushrooms scattered all over the place.  They all looked to be the same type apart from the a couple of little parts.

I picked a few so I could bring them home and get an I.D on them before I go picking any more.  I've also took a couple of pictures to get an idea of where I was picking. It was quite high up in the hills, on a patch of cut down trees. This is in the north-east of England.

I've had a look at some pics and I think they look most like Psilocybe Pelliculosa.














Am I going back to there for more or am I looking somewhere else?

Cheers guys.

Did you notice any bluing?  Were these growing directly from wood?

I would say close, but these look more like Hypholoma to me than Psilocybe.

Also, they do not remind me of P. pelliculosa, and that species is native to Pacific Northwest, USA (as far south as Northern California, up to Washington).  So I would not expect to find that species in England.

Look for P. semilanceata, aka "Liberty Caps".  They prefer pastures and sheep paddocks with tall grass.  Proximity to livestock is not a necessity, but it helps.

Hey CureCat.

I can't say I noticed any bluing on them, maybe some greenish-blue bruising  on some of them.  Some were growing out of wood but maybe through wood and into the ground, others directly out of the ground.
