Anyone here picked shrooms in Europe?
    #1626026 - 06/11/03 11:30 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys, im a total newbie to mushroom hunting and got a few basic questions:

1) I live in Dublin/Ireland, its extremely moist and wet climate here, we have rain almost every day around the year. This should be good right?

2) Which species of shrooms should i expect to find in this area/Europe? The only mushroom people seem to find here is psilocybe SemXXXX (XXX = insert rest of name here)

3) Where should i look? Is it only cubensis that grows in horse/cow shit?

Cheers guys if someone could help me get started ...

hey. its PSILOCYBE SEMILANCEATA. try saying it with a latin accent and pronouncing all of the letters and its much easier (although maybe its just me because i speak polish).

those definately grow in Ireland. if i were you, i would be out there hunting my ass off for liberty caps.  :wink:

check this out:

other than that i dont know much of anything. i would suggest searching the internet or  the shroomery for 'ireland.' i havent much of any other shrooms other than liberties but there could be others growing in ireland.

as for other mushrooms. im sure there are tens of thousands of species growing in ireland. just go out and look in forest, fields etc.
here is a northern ireland site:
check this out: http://www.fl-ag.com/pdf/kidsquiz/mushroom.pdf

also read the FAQs in this forum and the rest of the info on this website. it will help you a lot

i would also suggest buying a decent field guide for starters at your local bookstore.

good luck on your shrooming.

Psilocybe semilanceata (liberty caps) can be found in the green fields of
Ireland, mainly in grazed land on hill sides tops, though can show up
in pretty much any grassy areas.

These can show up after heavy rains, mainly towards the end of the year, august september

Good luck, there are others species but these are your best bet.
