Picture of blueing mushroom?
    #1783072 - 08/05/03 10:34 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I'm becoming interested in going out to search for my own wild mushrooms (still have a lot of research to do...) and in the reading I've done thus far, I've heard a lot about certain mushrooms becoming blue when bruised. I understand to a certain degree what that entails, but if someone could provide a picture(s) or a link(s) to a picture(s) showing this blueing process specifically, I think I'd be more confident. Thanks ahead of time...

You really should have done a search on your own, but i'll throw some links your way:

Here you will see bluing in P. stuntzii
and here is bluing in P. cyanescens,
courtesy of MJ.

You will want to be sure to know the difference between the bluing wich occurs in boletes and that wich occurs in psilocybian mushrooms. Also important is the ability to recognize the gilled bolete, wich can confuse begining hunters.

[edit: edited for spelling and grammar]


--------------------



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.

Be aware that you should be looking for an obvious blue color. There have been serious poisonings where an inexperienced person mistook a darkening as blueing.

Happy mushrooming!
