From the picture it could be anything.  At fist look I would say not caerulipes, especially with an annulus and intense bluing and growing from wood chips.  Did you print any? If I were to go by the picture.. I would guess Agrocybe or another brown spored mushroom.  But ill take your work that they stained blue... so maybe far northern ovoids?  Dry some, print some, more pictures and maybe someone with a scope would be willing to examine.  Nice finds non the less, congrats.

You might want to take a print and either scope it yourself, or see if somebody else can.  They might be some early fall ovoids if they're thicker, stouter and have a ring.  Did they still have the veil remnants on the pileus and margin too?  If so they're probably just strange looking caerulipes.  Ovoids tend to dry white with a green tinge all over the cap.  If they're not known in your area you might be the first!  Either way, they're an awesome find. I'd love to hear about some east coast fall-fruiting ovoids, but another caurulipes find is always a good thing, they are at the top of my list of new species to find this year.  :thumbup:

Maybe they are ovoids. Do caerulipes get that big? Compare to these: Ovoids will stay dark colored as long as they stay wet. If the caps lose their coat of liquid water, then they turn permanently to a much lighter shade. Sometimes the caps will be blue, or a coppery/blue mix but seems like this only happens when they are never exposed to sunlight.

Maybe a sport print could shed light? Fresh pvoids drop distinctly purple spores that change to chocolate brown within a few hours.

Great photos Roy! Thanks for adding to this thread.
Even looks like a few of yours have a tiny blue annulus.

Went back to check on my woodchip find today. Took a few more photos and have a few printing right now to make sure. Definitely leaning towards caerulipes after todays observations. I will post results soon....

I see two shots with a distinct annulus on those, you're right!  This species is so hard to get accurate information on.  The photos in most guidebooks and websites are pretty much worthless and the descriptions seem to vary widely and contain a lot of errors.  I was beginning to think this species was a myth when I first started researching caerulipes and was looking back through the archives at all the "bluefoot" threads containing mis-identified ovoids, until I started seeing the pictures of all the recent finds from this season.  You guys should pool your expertise and write up a guide to identifying and finding these puppies like has been done with other species.  You already have some of the best shots of them that are available.  Looking forward to seeing that patch of fatties in more detail.

Yes I see what you are calling an annulus but Im hesitant to call it that.  It obviously has a veil which when it breaks leaves remnants on the cap and very thin amount can be left on the stalk, it is usually just hanging off and not an actual annulus, which will easily wash off if it rains, though I do see what you guys are saying.  But I still dont call it a true annulus like you would find on lets say stropharia or amanitas or tubaria or pholiota.. or even other psilocybes

I went out looking for beech trees, which I have never really paid much attention to before... Turns out they are fairly common along the creeks where the ovoids grow

So, my question for people who have found both ovoids and caerulipes... When you look at caerulipes, are you more likely to say "wow, these look so much like ovoids" or "wow, these don't look like ovoids?"

Roy, you really know how to frame shots and use the zoom like a pro!  I am totally saving these in my ever-growing collection of awesome, clear, crisp caerulipes pics.  It's not quite like porn, but it does excite me in a different way  :eek:

Keep 'em coming!  :thumbup:

Haha Thanks! but no zoom just extreamly close... tripod and timer are key.  And anyone please feel free to use any of my pictures for use in anything, I do not believe in the owning of a picture... So no luck yet my good neighbor to the north?

And to koods, size alone will separate the two. Ovoids are quite larger.  I collected 48 mushrooms... they all fit easily in my palms and im only 5'5

Wow.  Liliputian.  Are we talking about 1 cm cap diameter?  What would you say are the average dimensions?

They did not look like ovoids.The size,gills and smell were the first things that stood out to me.
Nice finds roy, thanks for the great info and tips:thumbup:

Many have been that small, I would say the average would be a cap size of 2cm and stem length of 3 or 4cm. This is the largest one I found, its cap was prob a little smaller than 2in maybe an inch and a half.



The smell is unique, very pungent for such a small mushroom, and will clearly be different than others that may be similar in looks.  And just as a bit of a warning, its getting close to fall now and that means one thing... Galerinas will be starting, tibiicystis is already out ( it may have a differant name by now, I dont keep up with all the changes) and they can look remarkably similar, especialy if you are hunting very wet mossy areas like I do. As will various small cortinarius and tubaria, though they are pretty easy to seperate.  Just be carefull.

Sorry Roy, I meant focus / focal length, not zoom.  It gives your pics great aesthetics.

No luck here yet, no.  We had severe drought here the whole summer, so maybe that's why: even after heavy rains lately that gave me a woody of excitement and hope, the ground was disappointingly dry when I went to the woods.  May have been so dry that it absorbed it all.  I'll keep looking but maybe this year it won't happen.  Thanks, global warming.

All this talk of the legendary real bluefoots got me inspired to take a hike today.

Unfortunately I didn't find any bluefoots but did find a perfect ovoid habitat that I was unaware of before.

I did find these though.  They were too infested with flies to pick but if my ID is correct (Oysters?) then I think I'll be going back and getting a clone.  :smile:



One thing of note today......I saw a herd of deer.  Not too unusual until I noticed they were all buck (all 5 of em).  I wasn't aware that buck actually herded together.

Anyway, when I got close enough to them the largest literally swung his body around to meet me and showed me his horns and started to huff.  I've seen enough "when animals attack" videos to know that he wasn't fooling around.  I said good day to him and turned around and walked away from them.  He continued to stand his ground and protect his herd even after I was several yards away.



I hope the OP doesn't mind me posting these pics and my story from today.  Happy bluefoot hunting.

I went out a couple times this week, found some promising grounds with well decayed beech and birch along a cople of different creeks.  Got into the bluefoot mentality of really searching every log.  It's a different, more zen style of hunting than my usual cruising pace.  I noticed every tiny little species that I usually just ignore.  Took a lot of pics that I'll put in a new thread later on tonight.
       
What kind of average temps are you guys getting at your peak season?  We're still hanging ~ 85 highs in the day with ~ 65 at night, which seems like it might still be too hot for caerulipes? 

I'll watch out for galerinas, I'm more interested in the hunt and actually finding these elusive bastards than I am in actually tripping off them.  In any case, every specimen will be printed.  Are they more chocolate brown like some ovoids, or do they have the classic purple brown psilocybe color?

Temps have been up and down with the thunderstorms.  Some days hot and humid then a storm would cool it off, but generaly 80-85 days and high 50 nights. So I wouldnt worry about it being too hot, but too dry would be a problem.  Spores are classic dark purple brown.  With your mind set and determination Im sure its only a matter of time before they find you.

Amazing what you can see in the middle of the city, MacMerdin. I had the same experience with a group of bucks racked like that when I took a stroll into Rock Creek Park next to the tennis stadium on 16st street. When they started to make noise, I stared them down, stomped the ground and grunted. It kept them away. As the rut gets going, that probably wont be a wise action. Seems like all the boys are down there, and we have the ladies up here.

A couple years ago, a deer got hit by a car on Mass Ave. right in front of the VP residence... Wonkette posted a picture of the carcas laying there under the headline "Cheney claims another victim."

I feel like know where you took the oyster photo, is that a cul de sac in the background?

I also went for a stroll today. Wow.. Trying to navigate through the ovoid territory is so difficult these days with the grasses up to my neck, but a little further in, it was doable. Didn't see much fungal action. Should I be looking at big logs with moss on them, because that seems to be a theme in the photos so far?
