PNW possible cyan id for first-time hunter
    #11354816 - 10/31/09 12:00 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Alright, here goes.  I spent a few days reading the shroomery forums and looking at pictures.  I found an area near my work that has some alder trees so I went for a few 20 minute walks today.  Provided these are what I think they are this was almost too easy!

Found growing in mulch along side of trail under an alder tree in a diversely wooded area near a stream in northern Oregon.

They bruised a dark purplish blue.

I am a nub myself, having found my first patch of these guys recently, but I agree. :laugh:

Just want to reiterate that I am NOT a trusted identifier and would recommend you get a verdict from one of them before eating any. But they do look good to me.

i'm not a "trusted identifier" either, but i'm quite certain those are psilocybe cyanescens. enjoy.

Definitely an active Psilocybe sp. I can't say if they are cyan's as I've never picked them myself but the wavy caps are saying they are.

Look like cyans to me.  In picture #5, it looks like the one on the right has more of a brown stem (should be white) - probably just the lighting or dirt, but make sure they are all the same and do a spore print.  Nice finds! :thumbup:

Very cool! 

The spore print I posted wasn't very good, I took the picture after only letting the cap sit there an hour and while the paper was still wet.  After it dried a bit it turned much more purple.

I accidentally pulled out a few babies because I didn't have anything to cut them with.  And they got pretty muddy as you can see in the pics.  Still, I only took a small percentage of what was there.  I'll of course be back soon to see how they're doing. :grin:
