I'm not positive but liberty caps usually grow on the grass? My friend found some a while ago on a church lawn while it was raining hard but he sold them. So my guess is they grow on lawns, also, read the FAQ and the Hunting section, it will answer all your questions.

God, some people are lazy. FFS, read the Hunting FAQ.

This was taken DIRECTLY FROM THE MUSHROOM HUNTING FAQ:


Psilocybe semilanceata



CAP 0.5-2.5cm broad and high, narrowly conical to bell-shaped with a pointed umbo, scarcely expanding in age, incurved and sometimes wavy in youth; extremely hygrophanous, chestnut-brown to brown or olive-brown, fading to tan, olive-buff, or even yellowish as it dries, often darkened by spores, sometimes with bluish or olive stains; at least slightly viscid when moist, smooth, margin translucent-striate

FLESH very thin; pallid, bruises blue slightly if at all, but may age olive or slightly bluish

GILLS adnate to adnexed or separating, crowded, narrow; pallid, soon becoming brownish or gray, then finally dark purple-brown or chocolate-brown, edges whitish

STEM 3-10cm x 0.75-0.2(0.3)cm, equal, often curved or sinuous, pliant, stuffed with fibrous pith; whitish or with brownish base, sometimes with a bluish or blue-green tinge in age, especially at base, or may age olive or slightly bluish, bruises blue especially at base, attached mycelium may become bluish tinged, especially during drying; smooth

VEIL absent or rudimentary (thinly cortinate), may leave obscure zone of fibrils, usually darkened by spores

ODOR not distinctive

TASTE slightly unpleasant, grassy

EDIBILITY hallucinogenic, not as potent as cyanescens but more than pelliculosa, 0.2-2.4% psilocybin, no psilocin, 0.2-0.36% baeocystin

HABITAT widely scattered to gregarious in pastures, tall grass, clumps of sedge grass in damper parts of fields, etc., but not dung, fall to early winter, less common in spring

SPORE DEPOSIT dark purple-brown

MICROSCOPIC spores 11-14 x 7-9 microns, elliptic, smooth, presumably with germ pore; basidia 4-spored, chrysocystidia absent on gills, pleurocystidia few to absent, cheilocystidia 18-35 x 4.5-8 microns, flask-shaped with an extended neck bent both ways, often forked

NOTES features include small size, smooth sharply conical cap (which is at least slightly viscid, and is chestnut-brown to brown or olive-brown, fading to tan, olive-buff, or yellowish as it dries), stem that is whitish or with brownish base, sometimes with bluish or blue-green tinge in age, growth in tall grass, and dark purple-brown spore deposit; rarely bruises bluish because high in psilocybin not psilocin; found at least BC, WA, OR

NAME ORIGIN means half spear-shaped, from shape of cap

SIMILAR pelliculosa which is less narrowly conical, grows under conifers, and has a more pronounced tendency to bruise or age blue-green, like a form of Panaeolus sphinctrinus that grows inland on manure (Schalkwijk-Barendsen says semilanceata is on seacoasts only)
SOURCES Arora, Phillips*, Lincoff(2)*, Schalkwijk-Barendsen*, Kibby*, Courtecuisse*, Stamets*, Guzman, Barron*

FAMILY Strophariaceae of Order Agaricales

While I'm at it, here's a quick grammar lesson:
It's "before", not "b4".
It's "tripped," not "triped".
It's "I'm," not "im".

This isn't AOL, buddy.

Gumby Dude, good post above. However, P. pelliculosa does not stain a gereen color aever and the bluing is rare becasue of the reddish crown stems fluttered with fibrils hides any bluing coloration in them.

And they only superficially resemble a libeerty cap byt the fact that they are conic in appearance.

mj

The caps on P. pelliculosa do not stay incurved like P. semilanceatas do.

But I have read that description before.

mj

good response form you though.
