oh yes, notice the slight blue tint where the pellicle was peeled from the caps in the last pics, actually it is more visable in the pics than with the naked eye, i think its something to do with the flash, but it just looks sorta slightly green to the naked eye.

oh, and if anyone disagrees with my ID here please speak up, ill admit im not totally sure. tho im quite sure they are gymnopilus, i suppose they could be spectabilus too, but then ill be honest im not sure. I'd LOVE to know for sure. some of these had a slight reminant of a fuzzy veil, the young ones had them more noticeably, very characteristic if the courtinariacae family.

directly from a stump good orange rust print, very dirty mushrooms, handling mature spesimines turns your hands reddish orangy-brown,
there was alot of these, however, i find these to be my least favorite active mushroom, basically, if these were in anyway a worthwhile mushroom potency-wise, then id have kilos and kilos dried for basically giving away (pretty much what i do with pan subbs)

i usually keep libs for myself and closests friends.

but gyms i will give away by the dried pound to people i have no respect for, or people who are wanting to get all fucked up and then just act nuts, no concern for learning or enlightenment, this is their vehicle, and i find most of them have no problem eating a half dry lb or so of this bitter mushroom and washing it down with 3-4 beer then going to tim hortons and rolling around on the floor screaming hysterically about doghnuts. yah im cool with that.
but personally i cant get enough of these into me to be worth my time, and i know niggy cant even keep a few of these down. :P

they indeed are active, containign psylocybin and psilocin, hence the slight bluing in the last pic on the caps.
they are also relitively weak and VERY bitter, personally i dont find them that bitter, but i know people who find them unreasonably bitter,
that combined with the fact you need to eat alot of them makes for what i would call an unworthwhile experience, but if youre really hard up....
i suppose ive eaten enough to get a threshold trip one time. but that was like 10 grams, you would probably want to eat over a dry oz.
possibly 2 or 3.
or like a wet pound, what i have here is about a kilo....
thats hard to do.

Even with Hesler's monograph it's not obvious which species to call those.

Gymnopilus aeruginosus seems a reasonable guess. G. luteofolius is very similar in appearance. The main difference seems to be that G. aeruginosus should be primarily greenish on the cap when young. There are also two other very similar species (G. braendlei and G. pulchrifolius) which are characterized as having pinkish colors on the caps.

Even the microscopic descriptions of these species are basically very similar.

Great photographs and specimens.

Happy mushrooming!

Actually, I don't know about the dosages. I'm sure you know more about that than I do.

Happy mushrooming!
