    #1521250 - 05/05/03 06:23 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey again.

went on a hunt in a park on my lunch break and found some of these mushrooms growing in mulsch(sp?) sort of just dirt/leafs/sticks/fallen bark.

and yeh to me it looks like a Psilocybe subaeruginosa or maby a P. Azurescens. just a guess i made after looking at a few pics.

Psilocybe subaeruginosa


P. Azurescens


and pics of what i found



head was taken off in this pic to make a print which is still being made :smile:




any input would be great. trying to make a pore print but my camera doesnt seem to pick up the print.. maby i need to leave it for longer??

anywho

cheers :smile:

Those are a very common mushroom in Sydney.
They don't stain blue and are not psilocybes, but you I could see why you might mistake them for subaeruginosa, as they grow in the same sort of habitat. (P. Azurescens does not grow in Australia.)
Beyond that I don't know what they are, but they are everywhere around here.

Those are Hypholoma (Naematoloma/Stropharia/Psilocybe/whatever, I think Hypholoma is the most current genus classification, but I've seen it under all the others) aurantiaca, you aussies have been posting them practically every other day :tongue: .  The red caps and red bruising are distinctive.  Spore print will be a dark grey-purple/brown color.  They're common in woodchips here in seattle too, they like the same habitats as the cyans.

We do see aurantiaca quite commonly, and i would say that the gill colour, cap texture appear wrong for the common red-capped variant.

gill colour is wrong for gyms/pholiota.... they have rusty brown spores which is evident by the gill colour in maturity...
.
Hypholoma aurant. have simlilar spore colour to psilocybes and mature gills are usually very noticably purplish
