Lib Lookalikes
    #11304530 - 10/23/09 08:07 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, i went back to my normal spot to find it had been raped by someone else, and so my hunting took me further away through some pastures and moorland nearby. I found some more libs, but i also found a few shrooms that look a LOT like libs. But they look slightly different. Does anyone know of a site/gallery that has lib lookalik pics. I basically don't want to get ill from eating the wrong ones. I think i found some semiglobata, and psathyrella (spelling?), but there are a few others that i can't ID. They look like Libs, but they lack the nipple, and have a completed rounded cap.

Also found some mushrooms, that seem to match the characteristics of libs, yet they are dark brown. They have the sticky exterior and the nipple, and similar coloured stems.  Finally, found some mushrooms looking similar to libs, yet they have a redish/pink stem.


I've separated the ones i was not sure about. And im sorry about not pics. For the majority of spore prints they were brownish. Psytharella spore prints looks black.

If you can help. Thanks guys.

Well, "lookalikes" are a very individual thing. To me there are no lib lookalikes (I certainly wouldn't consider Stropharia semiglobata to be one), while to others the whole range of little brown mushrooms might be considered a lookalike.

Liberty caps go very dark brown after rain and turn creamishy white as they dehydrate, with the wiggly-waggly stem and nipple and turning cream as they dry out your probably only confused by the colour difference due to the rain?

Yeh perhaps, i know that libs can go dark brown, but some of them are like black as night. Maybe disease? With regards to the red stems? Does anyone know what these might be?

Can libs have red stems?


Also having done a little bit more research, some of the others look like Psy Strictipes. I believe they grow in the uk, would they be the same habitat, and are they safe to mix with semilanceata? (high ground, day after rain, long grass with reeds (red spikey grass, cattle grazing, moorland).

They have hygrophanous caps. Many mushrooms show this kind of behavior. Psathyrella gracilis and Panaeolina foenisecii do, for example. Both could be considered to be lib lookalikes in a wider sense (I know I've seen both presented here as "lib finds" before), so that characteristic by itself is not a strong enough indicator.

they can go totally black if the rain has been heavy, they probably contain a few maggots too. With the pointy shape of the cap and wiggly yellow/white stem (occasionally blue at the base) you can't really go wrong.

'squiggly' ; wavy / bendy, all other small brown mushrooms I've seen in fields have a very straight stem
