Allenii or Cyanescens?
    #17405003 - 12/17/12 01:17 AM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Improper/incomplete ID request, please excuse.


At first I thought these were small P. allenii, and some looked mature enough to grab...it was a busy intersection so I didn't want to linger. I nabbed the ones you see that are now printing.

Smell - typical of psilocybe, no alarming scents.
I'm being really sloppy with my ID request.
All stems are relatively white where undamaged, no attachment (but perhaps veil fibrillose), and are exhibiting prominent bluing where handled, cut, as well as around edge of cap.

Like I said, printing right now.

As I was laying them out to print, I realized that I might be looking at some cyanescens that hadn't fully opened up yet, and if that's the case I feel like a dumbass. What makes me think this is pic 2-4, it appears that there is some wavy stress wanting to unfold in those caps. However it's not present with all of them, just most.

The other thing, a week and a half ago the same spot gave me a flush of what were almost definitely P. allenii. It's a new spot for me, so I'm confused. Maybe I need to wait until the rest of the immature specimens can fully mature, though at the time I thought they were.



Here's another thing I found growing on a stump behind the bushes, and I'm wondering what it is. It looks to be a bracket type thing I've found growing on dead oak while looking for Bay Tree nuts and chanterelles. That which I've found before appear to have a strong, deep yellow pigment that I want to use for dyeing wool. Any ideas what this may be?!


Thanks

P. allenii, cyanescens would be a darker caramel color at that stage of maturity, and the caps would be more dramatically wavy.  Consider Inonotus for your polypore.

Alan, thanks for the tip on Inonotus. I'll work with that :super:
