purple shrooms
    #2055202 - 10/29/03 11:51 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I went hunting today and came back with a shitload of shrooms including these weird looking purple gilled shrooms... what the hec are they? I found the first few growing amongst some wood debri along with moss and such underneath some evergreen trees... the last I found in a small patch in a completely different part of town on the side of a road in a housing development amongst some grass on twigs and such... At first I was thinking cyans but I didn't think cyans look this purple.

The Gills are really purple and the stem has a purplish tinge to it with some myclium (sp?) at the base which has a purple tinge also... this isn't a dark purple to black I'm talkin purple purple... the caps are tan sometimes moving towards again a purple at the margin. 2-7 centemeters broad. With a little dent in the center (sorry couldn't find the correct term). Conic to convex to nearly plane with a wavy margin... the stem is somewhat hollow and rather thick about .75-1.5cm. I have yet to get the damn things to spore print...




please tell me if you need anymore info... thanks...

At first glance, they look similar to Laccaria amethystina. I would do a search for them on google, and see if they look similar.

What was the spore print color on them?

Cool color though :smile:

Yup you were right man Laccaria amethystina definately... thanks man. They are some beautiful shrooms... you should see one close up... some of those things were so damn purple they looked like they were glowing. and the spore print apparently is white. thats why I was havin such a hard time with them...

I've been lucky enough to find them myself, thats why the apperance of them sparked my brain to say what they were :wink:

The ones I found ranged in color. Some where very purple, and others were more of a blackish purple.

They are edible, but, you must make sure of your ID! :laugh:

Something just tells me that eating a purple mushroom wouldn't be that great for you. I don't know that I'd ever do it... Have you ever eaten them angry?

are they tasty? and if so how would you eat them?
all the psilocybes I've eaten haven't tasted too well and if these taste anything like them, I see no reason to eat em he he

I haven't eaten them, but Arora states that they are good edibles for beginners because of their easy identity.

They are bland in taste, but the texture is good...they wouldnt taste like Psilocybes... they would actually taste good !
