(Updated) Community Introduction and Psilocybe Weilii ID Atlanta, GA
    #12575427 - 05/16/10 08:24 PM (14 years, 16 days ago)

I am a college student living in Atlanta, GA. I am originally from Bogota, Colombia but have been living in the Atlanta metro area for 10 years now. I have been enjoying mushrooms for a couple years but not until very recently was I aware they were so present where I live. Since then, I have been excitedly learning about mycology more and more each day. Since late April, I have been trying to spot weilii and have even searched a few cow fields in hope for cubensis. I have not had much luck but have found a couple promising places to go back to later in the season; when the conditions are right.
This morning I woke up to find what looked like some weilii growing in my neighbor's front yard! This encouraged me to look all day but unfortunately I only found a specie that I have not been able to identify along with the potential weilii from this morning. I will continue my search into the night but will switch the habitat I'm looking in from coniferous forest to bermuda grass. Hopefully the darkness will protect me from people wondering what I am doing in their front yard or golf course.
Since this will be my first ID I am asking for some help from the community. Thanks in advance for any help with the ID and knowledge you can pass down as to where to search or any knowledge in general. All help would be much appreciated.


Species #1

Habitat: Bermuda grass, front yard.
Gills: Light brown-dark brown.
Stem: Thin and beige in color.
Spore print: Dark brown.
Bruising: No color change noted.
Location: North Georgia, USA





Species #2

Habitat: Pine straw, middle of coniferous forest by river .
Gills: White-light brow
Stem: White with what look like brown bruising at the bottom.
Spore print: In the works, will update when complete.
Bruising: Brown on stem.
Location: North Georgia, USA




"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."
-Abraham Lincoln (1840)

First one could be Panaeolina foenisecii. Dunno about the other.

Panaeolina foenisecii and some other mushrooms that are too blurry to see.

I was gonna be really surprised to see if you had any Weilii already. Sadly, no, you don't. - Everything you have is inactive.

Species one looks like Pan foes.
2 & 4 maybe psytharella? (sp)

(im a n00b so dont take my word)

Not sure at all on 3...
good luck on you future hunts man

All of the mushrooms in the first set are P. foenisecii, as noted.

The second ones....  If I had to guess, I would say maybe Agrocybe, Cortinarius, or Hebeloma.

And yeah, use the macro mode on your camera.  Look for that flower symbol that Alan posted.

Most early models of Nokia don't have macro mode, CureCat.

Ha! Fair enough, it was taken on an iPhone. I'll admit that I don't know the first thing about their camera capabilities. Most people that I know who have them would be too stupid to ever figure out how to properly configure it, in any case.

I think if the OP kept a really steady hand and paid attention to the clarity of the image, these photos would be good enough to ID from.

Can you adjust the white balance? ISO? Flash intensity? Exposure length? Focus distance? These are all things I've had to adjust in the past to get a decent picture, especially under artificial light.

Thank you so much for the input so far. The first set definitely looks  P. foenisecii and the dark brown spore print seems to confirm that. I have updated the pictures for better quality and will have the print for the second species soon. Hopefully I will post pictures of some weilii after the next rains.

The middle one in the top picture is Conocybe albipes.
