Possible Libs ID please
    #2069947 - 11/04/03 11:55 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)







First of all, I apologise for the low quality of these photos, I tried taking closeup pictures of the gills but the result was just a brown blur.

These were all found in NW England in a farmers field which has animals (cows and sheep) grazing on it, this field is also the most popular place in my area for picking libs. The gills range from brown to browny black. The first 2 pics were taken the night they were picked where as the rest were taken 4 days later. I've noticed blue brusing on quite a few but none on others, I also took 5 spore prints which can be seen in the last photo (1 print produced nothing).

I hope I haven't missed anything important.

You deffinitely have some liberty caps, however there are possibly some conocybes in there. It looks like a brownish sporeprint you have there on the tinfoil, but it could appear that way because of the flash on your camera. What color were the sporeprints? If they are not purple brown, to purple black, then they are most likely not liberty caps. Were any picked directly off of manure heaps? If some were, then those are probably conocybes, not libs. You are safe with the blueing mushrooms.

peace,
Ude

none were picked from manure, it's kinda hard to determine the colour of the prints because when I look at them from different angles they change colour (they go from black to a light purplely black). Thanks

I think most of the mushrooms you have there are indeed liberty caps.

The color of your sporeprint on tinfoil is weird with the camera, they look to be brown! However, if you say that they are purple brown to black that is a good color to have.

Liberty caps, (when wet) will have a removable layer of gellatinous skin on the cap.

I can't really tell if all of them are indeed liberty caps or another species mixed in. I would try bruising them all to see if they bruise blue.

They all look like libs to me too, and often libs don't bruise blue - probably something to do with unusual the psilocin/psilocybin/baeocystin ratio.

If those prints were that colour on black paper I would be worried, but it looks like a trick of the light with the foil.

To me it, the first two pictures look all like libs, although the one in the middle looks a bit mouldy.

Libs tend not to bruise blue on the whole.. although sometimes they do,so it is not a good test for libs.

if there is nothing in the identification guidelines about printing on fiol for id requests, i think i should add it.

this happens a lot, when you photograph prints on foil at certain angles the color appears off in the pictures. in the case of purple prints, they have a habit of looking dangerously reddish-brown.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
