Blue Meanie, That shroom is nowhere close to macroscopically resembling P. caerulipes. Guzman on,y wrote that there was an unnamed bluing PSilocybe sp. with affinities to the North American P. caerulipes (Peck)) Sacc.

And there were two alleged new species of bluing psilocybes.

one reported by Morgot and Waight in 1978 and another by my colleague Chris King. Both were suggested as having affinities with the P. caerulipes from the east coast of America. But then both reported differences in the two species so that they could not be the same species.

I have collected shroos with Chris King who also has a large shroom website and a cd-rom on the market concerinting shrooms.

All Psilocybes can look exactly like one another at some stage in their growth and develpoement. I just posted a page with several look-a-like Psilocybes in it here inthis forum on how to Identify Psilocye.

Currently Guzm?n is finishing an update on the Genus Psilocybe. His monograph on the entire Psilocybe genus.

But he is also examining several new species I brought back from Southeast Asia as well as a new species I discovered here in the PNW two years ago, which Workman is also working on getting to grow.

the point being is that if you sent to Guzm?n you would be credited with its discovery and a chance to help name the species, but if someone else finds it and it is a new species and does the taxonomy or whatever then you lose that chance for academic immotal fame for its discovery. See Hispanica was named by Nacho who discovered it in Spain and is acredited for its discovery inthe journal where the taxononmy appeared.

Mr. Mushrooms.

I haven't located the sample yet. It is in my unsorted pile and I just haven't taken the time. I haven't forgotten and won't request the gym monograph until I have the sample in hand.

This is really interesting Rev. Jim
(I'm in Christchurch)
Do you reckon the mystery shroom would be found this far north?

All Psilocybes can look exactly like one another at some stage in their growth and develpoement. I just posted a page with several look-a-like Psilocybes in it here inthis forum on how to Identify Psilocye.

mj '

Firstly I was quoting directly from Buchanan's work on Psilocybes from New Zealand which is considerably more detailed and well regarded among academics than Guzman's or Watlings. Since Makarorae was described not by Guzman or Watling, but by Buchanan and Johnstone im not sure why you think Guzman has any relevance to any conversation about Makarorae.
The work is titled 'The genus Psilocybe (Agaricales) in New Zealand (1995)' and is by far the most comprehensive work available on NZ Psilocybes.
It also goes into detail in describing how Guzman delineated Ps.Subaeruginosa from Australiana by only examining on type specimen when their were 11 available.
Secondly since a few people here have suggested that this mushroom could be similar to Semilanceata i thought it was important to explain that Makarorae was originally placed into that family.
Your first and last sentences condradict one another. You say this mushroom looks nothing like Ps.Caerulipes - although you should know that macroscopic appearence is nowhere near as relevant to correct identification compared to microscopic detail - then you say that at certain times in the life-cycle of psilocybes, they all look similar. WHich way is it MJ?
Certainly i would say that my tentative Identification - which by the way managed to sit quite nicely with the details supplied - was far more relevant than your mentioning of some psilocybe that you found on an island that is literally thousands of Kms away from New Zealand and with a completely different climate.
Lastly - a quote from Buchanan's work:
HOLOTYPE: 'New Zealand Otago Lakes, Blue Pools Track on rotten Nothofagus wood in 1990.'
NOTES: 'Margot and Watling (1981) examined PDD 49788 and considered that it was similar to P.Caerulipes (Peck) Sacc. p.Caerulipes, belonging to section Semilanceatae of Guzman (1983), but is distinguished by is lack of pluerocystidia, different spore shape, and longer-necked cheilocystidia. Spore shape upon examinination of 49788 and type-specimens and bluing reaction place p.makarorae in section Mexincane of Guzman (1983). The size of the caps, the presence of pleurocystidia, macroscopic detail, short-necked cheilocystidia distinguish p.Makarorae from the six species accepted in this section by Guzman.'

There you have it - in actual fact Buchanan and Johnstone found from examining their own and Watlings specimens that Makarorae was quite distinct from Ps.Caerulipes. But that their specimens and those found at Makarorae, Mt. Ngongotaha, Westland and Dunedin were type-specimens of Makarorae.

I have the Buchanan article. and again they do not resemble P. caerulipes. AS for liberty caps, they grow in tall rank grass attached to the roots of such grasses and then this shrooms you mention which you quote Buchanan, who says they were found on rotten nothofaus wood. Two entirely different habitats.

AS for my statement, I was referring to the general descriptive characteristics of the genus. I have photos of P. cubensis with thier caps all wavy from an in vitro cultivation resembling P. cyanescens, yet that is one in a million. I also have a picture of P. caerulescens with simialr wavy caps. That does not mean that all of the species would look the same.

My suyggesti9on of the New Guinea species is that it is a similar environment and Guzman and other have suggested that P. kumaeorum cou;ld be found in Australia.

Look at G. putrpuratus. It is also know of in Chile and Argentina which si thoudsands of miles from Australia/NZ.

My comments of Guzman were the same as Buchanan who wrote from Guzmans statements.

My bad actually - i did say that Buchanan suggested that Ps.Caerulipes resembled Makarorae and this is incorrect. It does resemble some pics of seen of Caerulipes, but that not surprising as i agree that psilocybes within each taxon can range consdierably.
But suggesting that New Guinea and New Zealand have similar climates is a bit of a stretch.
Papua New Guinea is tropical in that it is nearly on the equator or just below it ranging from 0 to 10 degrees from it. Id say that Guzman's suggestion might hold true for Northern Queensland Australia, but not for New Zealand.
The south Island of New Zealand 42 to 48 degrees from the equator.
Gy.Purpuratus seems to be spread around areas with relatively similar climates to Victoria, Australia. and it similar distance from the equator.
The suggestion that this mushroom was part of the Semilanceatae complex was being disputed by Buchanan from its incorrect classification by Watling et.al.
