Before you post an identification request in this forum, it?s important you know which features are needed so the mushroom can be identified.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable.
Along with the pictures, and even more so if you don? have pictures please give an accurate description including

a. Habitat (where and what does it grow on)
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
c. Measurements of cap and stem.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
f. Spore print color (very important!)
g. Color that the mushroom briuses
h. Scent of mushroom

For more detailed guidelines please visit this document.
Much information also in this thread.

If taking a pisture of a sporeprint for an identification request, please do not take the print on foil. use white paper for colored prints and black paper for white/pale prints.

taking a picture of a sporeprint on foil at many angles will make the color appear different. for example, a purple sporeprint on foil will often appear orrange-brown to reddish-brown. this could be dangerous and could lead to an inaccurate identification.

thank you for reading this,
concrete :smile:.


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
