My understanding was that it was commonly suggested that Ps.cyanescens was european in origin - but the fact that Ps.cyanescens from europe has no pluerocystidia, yet the US continental Ps.cyanescens does have these indicates that these could be quite different entities - certainly different type expressions.
Im hoping Pluteus will include the cyanescens specimens from the UK when he studies the subaeruginosa variants i have forwarded him - along with some azurescens and cyanescens cultivars.
Stropharia (Hypholoma?) aurantiaca is an interesting example - it is the most common woodloving mushroom anywhere in southern Australia - everywhere there is wood mulch, these guys are present - and often in concert with subaeruginosa and allies. Ofcourse these species is mildly poisonous - friends of mine who were picking in the dark for some strange reason pciked a few and ate them - got quite bad stomach pains, aches and diaherra. Sometimes drunken people learn the ahrd way - but it could have been worse - there are galerina here as well.
Pluteus' point that this is an introduced species would suggest the possiblity of cyanescens being a thriving import.
Buchanan and many mycologists tend to believe that subaeruginosa is an expression of Ps.cyanescens imported as mycelia on plant material - and they are quite similar - some variants of subaeruginosa are almost identical to cyanescens - Guzman even got it wrong originally according to reports before be got his microscope out and delineated on a whim.

Lonewolf - if it has been archaeologically contended that druidism utilised a type of psychoactive plant, is there any evidence that this would or could be a mushroom? My understanding is that mushrooms like Ps.semilanceata and Panaeolus subbalt. have been associated with modern versions of mainland european paganism - but the missing point here is that the majority of mainland european pre-christian religions were not druidic, but expressions of Nordic/norman beliefs - the god Wotan substituted for Odin, etc. These are quite at odd with the druidic type themes present in these modern pagan groups.

I love Terence McKenna, but most of his archaeological theories regarding mushroom cults and the partnership ideology of a mushroom worshipping neolithic are based on pretty flimsy evidence - but so is much of archaeology from that period.

I hope you don't feel that I'm proseyltising for human sacrifice here!I hope I'm doing quite the contrary.Unfortunately the words "druid" and "celt" get bandied around,and sometimes "bannered" around-if you know what I mean-"willee nillee",paleolithicum and the megalithic "Brethonic" civilisation should not partake in the debate on human sacrifice,in my house at least,without further evidence that it was practised."Druids"-those who have the wisdom of the trees-clearly existed,in "linguistic terms" well, before the inhabitants of these isles developed the ability to smelt iron.  :alert:
