What exactly am I looking for??
    #11332827 - 10/27/09 06:45 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

I live and work in Central Texas.  My job allows me access to many, many pastures.  I found some fungi on some poop at work the other day; however, I was informed that they were nothing of interest.  So I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I should keep my eye open for.  Remember, I am at work and can't spend too much time analyzing each piece of fungus I see, but am more just looking for a "what to keep an eye out for" description. 

Thanks for your help!

The first thing you want to look for is the little magnifying glass icon on the toolbar at the top of the page.  It's called "search posts" and if you put in your request you will no doubt get several hundred hits.

I have found this site.  I am obviously capable of a simple internet search.  Here's the kind of answer I'm looking for:

Psilocybe Ohmygoodnessis / 3-5" tall / pink cap with green stem / grows in groups on poop / Look in the shade... in sunlight... inside a butcher's ass... etc.

Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier.  I basically want to know when to keep my peepers peeled and what should raise a flag of "Look over here."  If I find anything, I'll always come on here and post pics to make sure I have the correct fungal material. 

And, Blackstatus, the boss is always far, far away.  Cha-ching.  Thanks again.

Okay.  I guess I'm the loser here.  I can admit when I'm the odd guy out.  I just thought that Sand_Storm actually kind of backed-up my own reasoning of asking by saying that I would get several hundred hits if I searched.  Instead of weeding throughout those hundreds to gather my two cents of advice, I thought I would just see if I could skip the hassle and find out if I could get an answer specifically oriented toward my own question.

So nevermind the question, I don't have time for this anyway, I need to get started on my hour-long search about something thats pretty fun and grows on shit.  Sorry for the waste.

don't tease the guy too much.

doob: your state doesn't offer much in the way of good mushroom hunting, aside from montaine habitats [where there is more rainfall and thus: more mushrooms] for mushrooms in general, and which might be good for edibles and along the coast.

the gulf coast is a great area for hunting actives, as it boasts both Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus [Copelandia] cyanescens, two of the most sought after wild Psilocybian mushrooms. the further you get from the coastal climate, the grimmer the picture becomes.

part of the reason you're getting so much grief about your post is that those answers are easily found within our FAQ.

with the name of those two species in hand, you have a good starting point for your search. you should familiarize yourself with their habitat, and the areas where they are found and you will know where to look [if you can travel a bit].


--------------------



Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
