Great news 4 texans
    #1952826 - 09/26/03 12:40 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I got a book from the school library called Texas Mushrooms
by susan metzler and Van Metzler

I was under the impresion that Cubes and subbs were the only Shrooms native to texas,but aparently not
to my surprize it says that Gymnopilus spectabilis (big lauphing Gym), and Panaeolus campanulatus are native to Texas!

I have been very interested in the lauphing Gym from reports of its potency, and charachteristic of excesive lauphter.
the P.C. match the discription of the mushrooms i have found growing in the cowfields next to my house exactly. heres what the book says:

Gymnopilus spectabilis
spectabilis means notable or visible, and when this mushroom is fruiting, the large golden clusters are quite noticeable. In Japan this species is called the "big laughing mushroom" because of its hallucinogenic properties- when eaten, a person tends to burst into laughter and experience other typical symtoms of hallucinogenic mushroom ingestion
DESCRIPTION: This large orange-yellow mushroom (stalk, cap, gills, and flesh are all this color) often fruits in clusters on stumps or buried wood. The caps are a bright orange, convex (rounded) when young, and opening to nearly plane (flat) in age. The gills are the same bright orange color and are attached or running slightly down the stalk. The stalk is thick and meaty, the distinct partial veil visible at first, often disappearing as the mushroom expands. The spore print color is a bright rusty orange.
Comments: This mushroom has an extremely bitter taste and is similar to other toxic Gymnopilus species, such as nogenic. It is occasionally common on wood in large clusters in low areas wher flooding has occured in late fall.
Season: Fall to winter.
Habitat, and distribution: Occasionally single, more often in clusters of several to many arising from a single base from buried or decaying wood. It is encountered most often in floodplain areas wher it can occasoinally be prolific.
Cap diameter: 5-2-cm (2-8")
Stalk height: 5-15cm (2-6")
Stalk diameter: 12-50 mm (1\2-2")

Panaeolus campanulatus
This mushroom takes its name from the bell-shaped ("campanulate") cap that never opens fully.
Discription: The caps are gray-brown, tinted olive, and vever open fully. The top is rounded and often has toothlike remnants of the partial veil clinging all around the edge. The giils are gray when young, often pulling away from the stalk as the mushroom loses moisture, becoming vlack in age. This mature color is somewhat uneven, causing a mottled appearance to the gill edges at midmaturity. The stalks are white, usually guite long and thin (often four or more times longer than the width of the cap), and a pale and disapearing ring may occur, frequendly visivle only due to the accumulation of black spores at the site. The spore print color of this mushroom is black.
Comments: This mushroom has been describes as iether toxic or "mildly hallucinogenic" when eaten raw, but usually there is no effect. We do not recommend it for culinary or recreational purposes. Found throut the state, wherever cattle are pastured, it is one of the first mushrooms to come up agter a rain.
Season: Fall, winter, and spring
Gabit, javitat, and distribution: Single to several on dung especially "cow piles," at times prolific
Cap diameter: 1-4 cm (1\3-1 1\2")
Stalk height: 6-15 cm (2 1\2-6")
Stalk diameter: 1-3 mm (up to 1\8")

wow my wrists hurt

You can also find Copelandia in Texas.

I feel like I shoulw also not that Panaeolus campanulatus is regarded as nonactive.
