A few pictures from a recent hike
    #2208573 - 12/29/03 10:30 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Only 10 minutes through my hike, my camera got too wet, and went into a coma for 5 hours. It still works, but, just about gave me a heart attack to think it was broken.

The rain was very strong today on the Northern coast of California.

Here are some pictures before my camera went into the coma.

A very old and rotten A. muscaria:


Some younger ones:





Short-stemmed Slippery Jacks


Laccaria amethystina!! (Thanks floccopus )



All these mushrooms, along with literally a hundred more (5 different species), were in a single 30 yard clearing of forest next to a road. I wish my camera held up to take more. There were some very interesting specimens. I'll probably go back in another day.

hey angry, love your stuff, ALWAYS, but i rather think you have some laccarias there at the end. they tell me amethyteo-occidentalis is the one in the pnw, otherwise it could be amethystina or amethystea....
they are also edible, and very beuatiful to boot.
i was thinking about heading your way in a couple of weeks, have you seen any trumpets out there yet? should be coming on, and cyans too? no?

peace. werd.

it would be interesting to hunt with you, angry, if you were down to go get some edibles... your season is just beginning, eh?...

Hey,

Yeah, you're right. Those aren't blewits. And, thats really funny too...

I was just seeing so many blewits around the past few days. I saw these, took pictures, and kind of walked away because it was raining so damn hard...didn't even think about it!

Thanks for pointing that out.

Well, I know there are Cyans out North of me. I am too far south I believe to find them. I am more in the North-central CA. :smile:

Thanks.

I really like the last two of the Laccaria amethystina.

great pictures angry.

i too found some purple laccarias when i went hunting the day brfore yesterday, allong with a few C. nuda and two C. fragrans i had initialy thought to be a Laccaria species. they smelled wonderful, like very sweet licorice with a spicy finish :smile:.

I need to get out and hunt more often.

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.

I've sure I've read (maybe in the FAQ ?-I can't find it in my field guides-) that a mushroom similar to Omphalotus olearius is hallucinogenic.Given the poisonous nature of the "Jack-o-Lattern" the possibility exists that someone may poison themselves.Does anyone know anything about this other mushroom and/or the hallucinogen it contains?

The similar mushroom would probably be one of the various species of Gymnopilus. The active species contain psilocin and psilocybin and should be easy to distinguish from Omphalotus species using a spore print.

Happy mushrooming!
