Psilocybe pseudocyanea??
    #11362554 - 11/01/09 02:58 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

This beautifull mushroom caught my attention yesterday. I think it's a Psilocybe caerulea. What do you guys think??





Habitat:
A grassy path at the side of woodland. Didn't have a camera with me to take a pic of the habitat.
There was only 1 solitary specimen of this mushroom found.

Gills:
Gills are dark brown. Attachement is adnate  I guess (not really familiar with these expert terms :smirk: )





Stem:
Stem is about 8 cm long, 4-5mm thick. Slightly enlarged near the base. Lots of bluiish green to azure coloring. No annulus. Hollow at the upper part. White mycelium attached at the base.

Cap:
Cap is about 4cm in diameter. It clearly has a separable gellatinous pellicle. Sticky when moist. Color is strawlike yellow with blue and greenish areas. A pronounced nipple is also present.





Spore print color:
Dark brown



Bruising:
There's lots of blue, but it seems it doesn't really increase when squized or abused.
Would you eat it?

Brown spore print? A little scary.

And for some reason your poll won't let me vote...

Wait for a TI to give confirmation.

I'm not planning to eat it, just wondering what most of you would do... :smile:
If most of you think it's an active, I'll probably do an attempt at cultivating it.

Throw it in my mushroom graveyard, under a hedge in my yard.

Unless you get a black spore print or a positive ID from a Trusted Identifier, don't eat it.

I never said it wasn't a Psilocybe, but most don't have brown spores. Maybe brownish-purple or purplish brown, but not usually dark brown. I am not even sure what to call the color in the spore print picture myself.

I think it is a psilocybe personally, I just thought the spore print was worth thinking twice about.

At least they certainly aren't rusty brown, thats for sure.

You may have a psilocybe there, let's see what the TI's say, as I am no expert.

Cool Mushroom nonetheless. :headbanger:

Then either

a: you didn't have Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata
or
b: your spore print was purple-brown.

So you're claiming that you had a confirmed Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata that had a rusty brown spore print?

We better recall all those books, magazines, and web pages that keep telling us that is has to be Purple/Brown or Purple/Black.

Not trying to pick an argument.. I'm sure what you had was the real deal :smile:  I'm just concerned because there are a few mushrooms out there that look very similar to Psilocybes, but have a rusty spore print, and are deadly.  I wouldn't want newbs to get the idea that it's OK to eat something like that.

For example:

That may be a large P. Strictipes. It shows bluing at the base of the stem and it has a separate peel-able pellicle and was found in Europe where they are finding allot of them.

As far as the spore print it may have looked dark brown in the lighting and I have had many Ovoids that have given a dark brown spore print and some that are more purple brown.

I'll be very surprised if this turns out to be a P. Strictipes. Doesn't look like the pictures I've seen of strictipes, especially that much of blue and greenish coloring on the cap itself and the lack of the translucent-striate margins and the cap isn't really very smooth...
