P. Baeocystis in Portland area?
    #2053499 - 10/29/03 01:57 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I have found cyans and stunzii (sp) previously and a few so far this year. To date I have never found a Baeocystis however. Do they tend to prefer different habitat then the others or are they just pretty rare by comparison and I need to just keep watching for them? Just curious. From published field guides and such indicatios are I should have probably found them if they're around. The only other thing I can think of is that I am looking too early or late. I see from this forum though that they are all fruiting pretty much at the same time and nearly the same places. guess I am just unlucky.

They grow in the lawns from July through early September and from September through December in woodchips, preferabley alder. They were rare for many years and then they were very common and again they are spasre and and few. It depends on the mulch and where it comes from, where it is stacked in heaps and what is added to it as the old goes to landscappers and the new gets piled on. If the spores are there the mycellium grows, when they stopped the clear cuts, many large landscapped areas of psilocybes disappeared and when the pasturelands make may for commercial buildings the spores for the P. stuntzii and beaocystis disappear. At one time over 70 percent of all new lawns in condos, restaurants and office buildings flurished with abundant blue ringers, some baeos and now the pasturelands keep dissappearing for progress and technology.


They are there. the Baeos were first reported from Eugene, Oregon in the 1940s. I only found them twice in Eugene in front of Prince Pucklers Ice Cream parlour near the Sweedishg Hospital off of 13th street in the early 1970s, not there since and once in a pasture I found fourteen of them.

Years later in 1977, My brother-in-law, my wife and two others drove to Eugene from Portland, to Florence and back from the coast to Corvalis and then back to Beaverton, Oregon. More thans several hundred miles. All we found wqere 12 Panaeolus subbalteatus shrooms in Corvalis at the Haystacks near the old airport off 99 west.

When we got back to Beaverton, my brother-in-law pulled into a bank to get some cash from the machine and I looked out the car window and there were baeos all in the mulch garden of the bank. So you can look all over and never find any and then whammo, there they are, usually right near you waiting for you to find them when they call out for you to come.

YEsterday my friend found some ii the yard nmext to his and another friend and I went all over for a month and a half looking for blue ringers and eventually he found some also next door to where he lived in Kent at a condo. He is also the same person who, along with me discovered a new species of Psilocybe which Workman is trying to get to grow outdoors

Hm. Guess I just need to keep looking! I too note that stuntzii are getting harder to find. Used to find them in shopping center landscaping (place in Hillsboro was just nuts with them). Now the landscaping seems to be coming from somewhere else or for what ever reason no Stunts. I have previously had no problems finding Cyans in the Portland area (have not looked much yet this year).
It sounds like Baeo's should frequent roughly the same sorts of places Cyans do. I'll just keep watching for them.
