Conocybe cyanopus (or smithii). Updated with microscope photos and more photos Feb 22,
    #14895064 - 08/09/11 11:19 AM (5 years, 8 months ago)

last year, at my best liberty cap spot (and I mean best, check this out) I found lots of conocybe in the same habitat. I suspected them to be an active conocybe but they didn't stain blue so I ignored them, I didn't look very close at the bases over time... But today, when I was there to look for liberty caps (which I found BTW, some as close as 20cm from the conocybe) there was more conocybe than psilocybe. At first, I cursed them and in my mind I saw them competing with my libs and stealing nutrients... but I decided to look at them more closely this time. And to my surprise the bases got blue within 30 seconds.

Great! this must be Conocybe cyanopus. there is a possibility that it might be Conocybe kuehneriana, also supposed to grow in my country and is reported to contain small amounts of psilocybin, but I'm leaning towards cyanopus. What do you guys think?

Also, look at the close resemblance with the mushrooms psylosymonreturns found last year http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/12727534 Even the same habitat with lots of Trifolium.

In one photo, one liberty cap is shown to compare sizes.

Absofuckinlutely  b e a u t i f u l !

I've already been out in my lib fields, and among the thirty-ish
libs I swear I saw some little fellas very similar to yours. They
didn't compete with the libs in numbers, at least. I'll definitely
check up on these over the weekend when I'm going back.

Thanks everybody.

I'm taking a few spore prints, but with quite bad sterility, was mixed with chanterelles in a bag. Will do it better next time I'll go there. And I will take some more and better photos to. The battery was low when I got there so I had to be quick and didn't have time to optimize the settings.

Yes, my plan is to find enough to trip and I don't think that will be hard. There was lots of them last year and I picked 20 today and left about 20 to mature and spread their spores. And I will visit this place many more times. Stay tuned for updates. :smile:

Will try that wiscokid, thanks!

I took the long walk to the site again today. Not so much bluing today. Must be due to dry weather. I snapped a few photos. Check out the last one, I love the colors. Larger resolution than the rest also...

And the other one with the stone as background actually features three species, as a trained eye will notice... Top group is Conocybe cyanopus, below another Conocybe spp, growing close with the others! and to the right, two dry liberty caps.

And I found one Conocybe cyanopus 5cm away from a (ugly as hell) liberty cap :smile:

:wow::congrats:
F'n AWESOME man:awesomenod: thats one hell of a patch with liberty caps in it also:headbanger:
Great pics:thumbup:
i like the comparison shot also - cool to see them compared to libs - i don't kno if libs are small or your cyanopus are HUGE:crazy2::laugh:

the other conocybes there are prob c.tenera - my spot where i find c.smithii also has LOTS of c.tenera and c.lactea fruiting right along with the smithii:cool:

Nice job man - hope to see more pics of future hunts as well

KEEP IT UP:cheers: Active conocybe :heart:
