Maryland find Needs Id.

Hey ,
I just recently been introduced into the world of hunting mushrooms.. I found these in a field near my house.. they were growing on the edge of a field and between a freshly plowed field and a field with loose hay on it. If you have any idea please let me know.. I performed a spore print and it turned out jet black.. Also there is no notable blueing reaction when the fruit or stem is damaged. The stem is hollow. . I posted one picture if you need more let me know.. I can go back and take some pictures of the speecimen itself without it being picked.. thanks.. I have sided on this specimen being a panaeolus subbalteatus mushroom .. let me know if I am right. .and if it is ok to eat these babys.. I recently went back to find that there are more and larger ones in the same spot.. but no where else have I found anything like these.. .Let me know if you need more info.

No. Not even close.

This explains things.

And how about let's NOT make 2 identical posts when you mess up on one?

kthx

Yeah, I would agree with it not being a Panaeolus subbalteatus.

Just like gumby's link says, those are the all too common Psathyrella velutina. Psilocybes don't have a velvety, hairy, fuzzy cap like that...ever. Psilos will be smooth, maybe sticky, slimy, and if dried just smooth skin with wrinkles, hence the name "Psilo" which I think means bald head?



LK,

Yup, psilo means bald, and cybe means head. In Dutch they're called 'kaalkopjes', which translates into something like 'little bald heads' :smile:

Thanks for your help.. That post was amazingly effecient in explaining the difference.. Ill let you know if I find any more suspected mushrooms.. Also It says on that post that the weilii will be within a mile if you are finding these guys .. does that apply to maryland as well??? and what type of areas do they live in? Anyone know a good guide to hunting shrooms in maryland?
Thanks again to all who replied

P. weili only grows in and around Atlanta, Georgia. perhaps you will expand their range :smirk:

Yeah, unfortunately like Magma said, Ps. weilii only grow in Georgia and perhaps South Carolina. I created that post primarily because a LOT of people in Georgia were having problems telling the difference between weilii and P. velutina. I'll go back and specify that weilii are only found in Georgia. :smile:
