firsat of all; no, there aren't many look alikes taht bruise blue.

there are ,any species of mushrooms wich bruise blue and wich aren't containers of the psilocybiuan compounds [many of them toxic], but they are easy do distinguish if only you do some work to learn to identify them.

there is no substitute for identification, ever. if you don;t know how; learn. a good place to start is the mushrooms hunting faq. another good place to look is in a mushrooms identification handbook [i recomend audobon's field guide to north amercican mushrooms and mushrooms demystified by david aurora. a good guide to psilocybian mushrooms is specific is psilocybian mushrooms of the world by paul stamets].

as an addition; there are also psilocybian mushrooms of the genera conocybe, incocybe and others who's toxicology is not well established and wich may be toxic to some degree, though they [the specific species] are not currently known to be. many members of these genera are known to be toxic, so all due caution should be exercised and consumption is not adviaable.

to my understanding, the enzimatic reaction in both blue bruising inactive mushrooms [such as boletes] and in psilocybian mushrooms is not well studied, or understood.

yeah; the trouble is tht the term "look-alike" is a subjective one. to those unindoctrinated in the area of mushrom idnetification, most mushrooms look alike to some drgree. unfortunately; it is these people who do not need to be eating wild mushrooms in thier current state of myco-education :smile:.

The majority of bbluing mushrooms which are toxic are boletes which have porous bottoms instead of gills. I suggest avoiding the psilocybian species of inocybes becasue of their poisonouys relatives which are rich in muscarine and will make you sick.

The psilocine is an oxidation caused whent he flesh of the mushroom ocoining psilocine is damaged form human handling.

If you are interested in how these hallucinogenic shrooms and other drugs work then read my newset post in the General Questions forum of this site or read my paper, Close Encounters of the Panaeolus Kind which has a section in it on the bluing reaction. It is posted int he General Information Section of this site, differnet than the General Questions Forum.

Boletus erythropus

Like MJ said, most are boletes, but there are others out there.

no.
muscarine is a dangerous [and potentialy deadly] mushroom toxin.

Safrole is the primary compound followed by myristicin and elemicin and safrole can be used to make x and MDA and is the primary compound in Nutmeg and Mace

Spice Pages: Nutmeg & Mace (Myristica fragrans)
... Of the latter group, myristicin (methoxy-safrole, typically 4%) is responsible for the hallucinogenic effect of nutmeg. Myristica fragrans: Grenada's flag. ...
