UK WTF happened to info
    #1909889 - 09/12/03 04:24 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

i have read that there are 9 types of magic mushrooms in the uk and there is like 1 site dedicated to shrooms and that is a vague map. i am not happy we need and english site because the only types i have found in england are fly agaric and liberty caps i am quite sure this is due to a lack of information. I am going to go and look for liberty caps tommorow morning early cos i don't wanna get like shot going into farmers fields anyone from the uk think i gotta chance at liberty caps tommorow it rained 3 days in a row and the ground was quite wet.

desperate in england

I was out in the Peak district 2 days ago and didn't find any at all.
I'll be checking again in a week or so if we get any more rain that is !

it still seems a bit early, its going to
take the mycelium a while too recover. So
lets hope for more rain.

When it does get wetter, check bark mulched bed and boarders
around towns for Ps . cyan's(Psilocybe cyanescens)
good luck with it though, still worth a look tomorrow.

I've found a few libs near stockport, but still seems to be too early. I agree on the lack of info though, had a hard time finding which species actually grow here, and a harder time on how to ID them.
I'd be more than happy to put a UK site together if anyone would help with the info.

Just a reminder folks:

Its all here at the shroomery, you just need
to think bigger :-)  these things grow all over the world, and
each species has a niche, weather its growing here in the uk, or
north, north america.

Canned in totnes has some info, but well, most of us
are to stoned and lazy in the uk :tongue: to dedicate a site lol.

-is speaking for himself.

cheers for the response got a bit cheesed off looking endlesly and finding nothing on the net, i have already found a few diffrent types of mushroom this year as to what they are well maybe if we had a totaly english site that would have been possible i will also help in the making of that site, when it is said that all the information is here well i tpyed in "magic mushrooms" "uk variety's" and got about 50 pages of info, well i would say its not worth looking through all that even if i tripped my ass of for a week

i think he was just trying to prevent it from happening later so he wouldn't have to close a perfectly good thread. if you guys are this concerned abnout the lack of specific info you should put something together and submit it to the FAQ contributions forum.

So the 9 species you've read of, which would they be? I've bought 4 mushroom Id books this summer on UK species, and had some great meals from the edibles I've found, but still can't find references to more than 2 halucinogenic species.

Pan. ater [possibly active],
Pan. castaneifolius,
Pan. subbalteatus,
Psilocybe cyanescens,
Psilocybe fimetaria and
Psilocybe semilanceata
are all psychoactive and according to the list can be [have been] found in the UK.

[edit: edited to clear up a point.]

It's not dedicated to shrooms and is email based rather than an internet site, but I'd recommend http://entheogenuk.yage.net for anyone in the UK.

I think you'll have to wait at least a few more weeks before many shrooms appear (at least down south, which is where I am). The weather is still far too good, and the forecast isn't exactly looking mushroom friendly. A couple of days of rain won't really cut it as the ground is still really dry. We need a couple of really horrible weeks to get saturation up to a level where it'll stay humid at ground level all day.

It's also definately worth going hunting for Ps. Cyanescens. They seem to come out a bit later than the libs, but they are a bit stronger and I find the lack of baeocystin gives a far more pleasurable experience.

Yeah dudes!

I had a book UK guide to psilo or something like that & it had loads of psychoactives in UK we found one type that was a green/blue colour with a nipple much larger than liberty caps, growing out of cow shit! They were a panaleous of some kind. There were also plenty of 'witches hats' growing in the nearby grassy field.

that would likely be P. fimentaria, wich, while not being blue/green can have blueish green tones in the cap, assumedely occuring from weather/water damage or something.

They are, but not many shops do them yet.
Hunting should still play a part :-)
