North Carolina Psilocybe cubensis found
    #2002826 - 10/12/03 05:51 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

A while back someone dropped into an IRC channel and wanted us to identify some mushrooms they had found in North Carolina. They turned on their webcam and we took a look. The camera view combined with other descriptive info this guy gave us was enough to identify the shrooms as Psilocybe cubensis.

My climate model for Ps. cubensis suggests it could grow that far north, and it seems that it does.

Here are some screen captures.



Here's my climate model:

So you identified those as psilocybe cubensis. From the 4th, 5th and 6th pics they dont look like cubes.  :confused:

I dont think they're cubes though one of them shows signs. Wish you had better pics. Did they bruise blue?

I agree they seemed rather uniformly small for Ps cubensis. We also told him that it had to have a purple-black spore print to confirm it as cubensis. He described it as having a ring/annulus when we asked and we took his word for it, and he knew what we meant by that.

(Also, webcams have notoriously bad color fidelity. I can show you webcam pics of stuff found months earlier by a different person that we were nearly certain were Galerinas that on later inspection were most likely Panaeolus castaneifolis when the person sent us digital camera photos of it.)

Unless this fellow gets back to us with the spore print description or a trip report (or an obiturary) this ID isn't good enough to publish as a confirmed cubensis find in North Carolina.

I'm not sure what to make of the circled features. The incurved margins of that one cap look like the way a veil breaks way from the stem. That one photo looks like belt or hygrophanous band along the margin of the cap.

They could be Psylocybe caerulipes. These are native to NC. They resemble cubensis and have the bell shaped cap when growth begins. They also have attached gills. These grow on Birch and Maple trees or in that area.

They look a lot like Psathyerlla velutina in their younger stages of growth.

They are Stropharias. It seems I answered this same post somewhere else.
