Orange Cyanscens?!?
    #1268882 - 02/01/03 05:47 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I live in British Columbia about an hour from Vancouver, I was walking around on 7g dried and the mushroom led me to some of it's odd friends. The caps are wavy and red with sort of yellow rings and the stem is red, gills are a light orange/yellow. They had really sort (like 1 inch) stems and grew VERY CLOSE together (like overlapping) in a pile of dead grass in this sort of marshy field beside some trees.

Sorry, that doesn't even slightly resemble anything like a cyanescen. Try reading up a little more. There have been many informative posts in the last couple months refering to this mushroom. No offense but if you don't have a clue you're better off searching the web than searching your yard.  :smirk:

Why say that?. If ya don't have a clue search the web? the best way to learn is to search your "yard" with a good guide and learn to identify mushrooms.

Looking at pictures on the web of this mushroom or that isn't going to get you half as far as finding the real thing, in its enviroment and useing a few good feild guides.

He gave a fairly good description of what he saw and asked for confirmation of what he thaught (well in this case I think hoped) the mushroom was. He hadn't done anything wrong and there wasn't any cause to say he shouldn't be mushroom hunting.

I disagree whole heartedly, I think you should hunt more. Pick any mushroom you come across and don't stop till you have a good identification. Don't ingest anything yet as your just learning but by all means learn to identify every mushroom you can. Good luck bro

My point was just that he was so far off, it would have taken him 2 minutes searching here to have known for himself it wasn't what he was hoping for. The books are great but you will truly find much more specific information on this mushroom searching old posts here than the one paragraph description given in a field guide. Nothing beats a field guide for IDing an unknown but when your looking for a specific mushroom, especially one which this site specializes in, you're better off searching here. Or at least take a glimpse of what the site has to offer cause even that would have clued him in.
BlackZombie - Do a search in the Hunting forum for cyanescens make sure to make it for the last couple months and you will be much better prepared. Just so you know though it is kind of late in the season and you would be better off looking for Stunzii which grow throughout a wider season. Good Luck

I think @cro was implying that he'd be better off searching on the web for information on mushrooms. That way he could at least have an idea of what characteristics distinguish cyans from other mushrooms(I can tell you a veil is NOT one of them.). Doing lots of reseach on the net and buying a good guide are some good first steps to make when starting to hunt for mushrooms. Finding random mushrooms in your yard and asking if they are active is not, and gets annoying after a while. Typicaly you will not find cyans in your yard.

I know this post sounds negative, but I'm not trying to put anyone down, I'm just stating the facts. Work(or research in this case) before play is just how it has to be.

Gah, it pains me to ask this, but do you think it could be stuntzii then?
It looks a lot like this except the stems are only like an inch, I didn?t even think they had stems when I first looked at them!

I'm looking at the cap again it's about 5cm from edge to edge and goes from orange in the middle and most of the mushroom to dark brown at the edges...

Here's a cyanscen picture that looks a lot like the ones I found too, which led me to believe that's what it was:

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.

I think I could have found a galerina maybe? I might get some pictures if I can borrow my friend's digital camera!

stipe is the propper term for the stem of a mushroom.
teh physical description does fit with a galerina, but the habitat seems to indicate otherwise. i wouldn't rule it out though as my knowlege of galerinas is somewhat limited to the more common and dangerous species (like those sharing habitat with more common active soecies).
