I think I found some Psilocybe medullosa!! (now confirmed) * 4
    #22279072 - 09/23/15 03:20 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Today, I went to check out my C. smithii habitats, but didn't find any. On my way back I was close to a cow pasture where I knew I could probably find some liberty caps, so I decided to have a look. The farm owner cut down some pines a couple of years back to make the pasture bigger, a lot of twigs (hard, not decomposed wood) has been left where I walked toward the older more grassy areas. But there was some P. acuminatus and P. papilionaceus growing there, and some Mycena, and suddenly I noticed something else that made my day! Since there aren't many photos around to compare with, I'm not 100% but based on Mikaels photos from Finland it feels like I have found some Psilocybe medullosa! :omgawesome:

Habitat: Growing from spruce wood in a cow pasture located in Västergötland, Sweden

Cap: Very sticky. Breaks of from the stipe very easy. Could perhaps have a pellicle, but breaks before it gets expanded enough to analyze more closely.

Stipe: White, some have fibrils. No bluing noticed.

Smell: EXACTLY like liberty caps. And strong! This is so weird but at the same time makes some sense, perhaps more Psilocybes smell the same, all dough P. cubensis are not even close.




Together with a cousin. It would have been even better if the libery cap where just as wet and showed some striation.

That looks a lot like the habitat that I find pelliculosa in.
Awesome pictures man! Awesome find!
Do those mushrooms have a separable pellicle?

Some of those specimens look very similar to P. pelliculosa, as was pointed out. Some don't.


K, you should take photos of spore prints and do microscopy on this collection. It's worth it.

Can't tell for sure. I actually mentioned that:

The stickiness suggest some kind of layer similar to libs, but no, not really the same. Chunks of the caps breaks free very easy.

Spore prints are in the making. :wink: Not HQ spore prints made for growing but I need to see check the color.

The caps are hygrophanous, shows clearly after drying them a couple of hours:

I can't wait to see those. This is exciting. Hope the prints are fat enough to tell. Weak prints from brown-spored mushrooms can
be really hard to tell apart. Please leave them printing for a while. I can't think of any other contenders than Galerina, but as said
if the print is sufficient it should be no problem distinguishing. And of course, you know who to send these to for microscopy.

They are the European version of Psilocybe silvatica.

So PNW'ers take note, look for these mushrooms.

Hey hey nice findings kk :grin:

About the activity, I took once one gram these with in tea, but I was really really drunk..I would say that I did not noticed anything.

Thanks Mikael! You know, If you haven't found them before and showed us your photos, I would just have looked at these mushrooms for a second and then moved on thinking it was nothing interesting.

Alcohol is not a good combination drug when it comes to evaluating other drugs, you kind of spoiled this rare opportunity... :wink: But a single gram would probably been a low dose anyway. I suspected that they weren't very active, since I have seen no bluing, but on the other hand, only one in a hundred or so liberty caps get blue due to the minimal amount of psilocin. Could be the same thing here, more psilocybin than psilocin. Good to hear that you didn't notice any poisonous effects anyway. Unknown mushrooms are always a risk. :wink:


So.. I went out to find some more and just came home with this. I found them just a few meters away from the spot I found yesterday:



I also walked a few km to some big clearings in the forest with lots of Spruce twigs/chips but found nothing else but this (well except Mycena etc.) , to show beginners that there is a lot of look-a-likes out there. This is a Hypholoma species I believe.

One of the things that can be done to assist in the bluing process, is to place them in a tupperware container with a lid that has pre-drilled holes in it (or saran wrap/aluminum foil with holes). By sitting in the fridge for a few hours, bluing may become evident.


Also, examine the stipe bases for tiny, bluing primordia.

Many species of mushrooms containing psilocybin also contain lesser amounts of the analog compounds baeocystin and norbaeocystin, chemicals thought to be biogenic precursors. Although most species of psilocybin-containing mushrooms bruise blue when handled or damaged due to the oxidization of phenolic compounds, this reaction is not a definitive method of identification or determining a mushroom's potency.




Not all active mushrooms bruise blue. He did mention that the mushrooms smelled farinaceous like P. semilanceata

Yeah I have been keen to find P. silvatica/medullosa for years and it was on species that was on my wanted list. So when I was in mycology school a few years ago I was able to find them.

Well I rarely take mushrooms if Im not drunk, I mean beer and semis are my favorite combo :hehehe: but I know that many might think different.

And yeah really nice pics as well, keep em coming. It seems that my spot dont fruit anymore..

Apparently they are very weak so I guess one would probably need at least 3-4 times as much as with P. semilanceata.

I find a surprisingly high amount of bluing liberty caps in my spots. Quite often there is quite strong bluing on all parts of
the stem, and blue spots on some caps as well. I find this mainly in larger specimens.

They are beauties! But you really need to detect that pellicle, that is obviously mega essential in this case.
If it is hard to observe when you split the cap edge, try separating it with a pen knife, razor or perhaps a needle.
Guzman writes of P. silvatica "pellicle separable and tenacious", but I'm not sure if this applies to P. medullosa.

Did you perchance observe any alder or were there only conifer trees nearby?

Yeah, I will try the next time I have fresh mushrooms.

Quote:

They grew from mainly Picea abies I believe, perhaps a Pinus sylvestris or two could be present, but I don't think so. I have to check more carefully next time. There are some alder about hundred meters away, but I don't think it was present among the trees that were cut down.

Heres the best sporeprint. Very weak, but good enough to see the color. The white paper have good balanced whiteness on the photo, so I think we can trust the color pretty well.

I was hoping for a new flush but the last few days have been dry, so lots of the mushrooms were dried, making them next to impossible to spot if I hadn't known their exact location. Most fresh mushrooms were found in the shadow from larger pieces of wood.

You should consider a donation to your local herbarium specially if this mushrooms is rarely(never) collected in your area. Beautiful pictures!
Can you tell what kind of wood they are growing on? Looks like a conifer to me.

I looked more carefully today and can with very little doubt say that the trees used to be Picea abies, just like the ones in the background outside the recently created pasture.

I linked Jan Borovicka to this thread, and he confirms that both knarkkorven and ST1R have Psilocybe medullosa.  He thinks this species is more common than previously realized, and now that awareness is spreading there will be even more finds.  He has offered to do accurate GC/MS based potency testing on these collections (and any other Psilocybe collections anywhere in the world also, BTW).

At first I thought I found some more at a new spot. But the stipes are more brown/dark, some have a annular zone, and not the distinct smell I mentioned earlier.

So, what is this? A Galerina?

I am not very sure, you are right - K. mutabilis isn't all that striate.  I was looking at the spore color on the annulus, which looks darker than the rusty spores of Galerina and also at the way the caps change color as they dry out.  It would be interesting to see if the spores are smooth with a germ pore or roughened without one.

A spore print in good lighting would also be cool to see.

I linked Jan Borovicka to this thread, and he confirms that both knarkkorven and ST1R have Psilocybe medullosa.  He thinks this species is more common than previously realized, and now that awareness is spreading there will be even more finds.  He has offered to do accurate GC/MS based potency testing on these collections (and any other Psilocybe collections anywhere in the world also, BTW).




I'm very interested about potency. What i have to do?

This is interesting, there are huge areas of felled conifer forests near me just like the habitat you found those in, I may have a look there soon. Are they known to grow in the UK?

Neat find! Just found a thread from 10 months ago, some guy found some in Europe in a very similar habitat.

I went back to the habitat a couple of days ago but found no new medullosas. Only the Galerina/Kuehneromyces/whatever species.. some in the same spots that previously had medullosas.

I found about 100 today :smile:

I only had the mobile phone camera available (except the last two) unfortunately, but I think I got some good photos anyway.
Today, I came to the conclusion that smelling the mushrooms are best for identification. The smell is even stronger than liberty caps, but the same odor.

I have sent samples to Jan Borovicka now. It's will be very nice to know if this really is P. medullosa. I still have some doubts (P. pelliculosa or some Deconica is IMO still possible after reviewing a lot of photos).



With some liberty caps:



I think the ones on the right are some other species


Same with the one on the right here... probably the same species I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, no smell:


A nice collection. The last two shows the difference before/after drying 5 hours:

At first I thought I found some more at a new spot. But the stipes are more brown/dark, some have a annular zone, and not the distinct smell I mentioned earlier.

So, what is this? A Galerina?





I think I identified this species now. Galerina stylifera.
What do you think?

Knarkkorven, how's the weather in Sweden? Your photos made ​​me think that I should still check my spot.
Estonia weather is +10c day and 0 or below at night.

Between +6 and +10. And we finally got some rain, October was very dry in Scandinavia (and I guess you had the same in Estonia?). The Stockholm region had the lowest recorded rain fall since the measurements started in 1786.

Some P. medullosa from today:



Here is a comparison with the Galeria (bottom row). The similarity is scary:



It was really wet today and I managed to get a photo of the very faint pellicle, it breaks after just a couple of milimeters, not like the libery caps that can be stretched more:

Good work and great find. They look tricky. Mature specimens look easier to ID as a Psilocybe species with the darker gills.

I'd like to find those. They come up thick in a small area. Photo 2 with the three mushrooms reminds me of darker specimens of P.alutacea I'm finding. Any news about potency scientific or otherwise?

Me too. I'm hardly likely to find them in my region though.They seem to better like the eastern inland parts of my country.

But - optimistic as ever, the hunt goes on... and KK's find is extremely inspiring.

ST1R from Estonia who posted some photos in this thread told me in a PM that:

Quote:

my friend ate 10g of p.medullosas. He said that the trip was weak. I think  20g of P.medulossas equals 2g of p.semilanceata.




...which is pretty weak, just as we speculated in this thread. But we will know for sure when the potency study is completed.

This one I'd like to find. There's atleast one confirmed observation of these mushrooms from Finland, so got to keep my eyes open. I have one Psilocybe semilanceata habitat looking like the one in the original post I'm going to visit this fall.

In case you missed this part. They apparently smell like libs.

And strong! This is so weird but at the same time makes some sense, perhaps more Psilocybes smell the same, all dough P. cubensis are not even close.





Weird... but good to know, especialy with the amount you'd need to consume for a dose.:thumbup:
Not that I'm likely to find them.

Would be super handy if all Psilocybes smelled the same...
but I don't recall p.cyans having the same smell as libs either.

You really should gather some spore prints and send them to some reputable vendors for testing \ selling. Or sell them privately and that person can test them hint hint lol would love to see medullosa research spores available here in the States! Great find.

Nice photos. My habitat is now overgrown with grass.
Please tell us if you make new bio-assays. Would be interesting to hear more about dosage/effects, since your friend ate 10g and said it was weak.

Any news about potency scientific or otherwise?




ST1R from Estonia who posted some photos in this thread told me in a PM that:

Quote:

my friend ate 10g of p.medullosas. He said that the trip was weak. I think  20g of P.medulossas equals 2g of p.semilanceata.




...which is pretty weak, just as we speculated in this thread. But we will know for sure when the potency study is completed.




Hi all. I’m going to test 15g medullosa tea at saturday (few slices lemon, ginger and 2 tea bag). Stay tuned!

If you don't like the taste of the tea, use hot chocolate or koolaid, low boil your mushrooms for 20min then strain the liquid, add the hot chocolate or koolaid (if using koolaid, chill with ice before serving) and enjoy. Psilocybin and psilocin are water soluble so boiling is the best way to get the goodies out of the mushrooms. I use 10ounces of water per person, I do add lemon juice to the water when boiling the mushrooms, it breaks down the cellular walls releasing more active indoles. The more you break up the mushrooms, the more you will get out of them. I grind my dried mushrooms into a powder and put into a coffee filter tied closed (made into a tea bag), this has increased the potency I get of my mushrooms considerably compared to leaving them whole.

Well as my English is not so good, then i make it short. me and my friend consumed as a tea 15g p.medullosa + 5g p.cinctulus (+few slices lemon and ginger). trip was smooth, things start moving and everythig was so funny etc. i would say that save these shrooms.

Thanks for the update. To bad you ruined (in my opinion) the evaluation by combining the medullosa with another species. I would really like to know what a 15g dose would do by itself, since we don't have any good potency studies or estimations yet.

Could you anyway perhaps estimate something here? When I eat 5g dry P. cinctulus I get the effects you describe "smooth, things start moving and everything is funny" so... Could the 5g P. cinctulus be equivalent with 15g medullosa perhaps if you shared this combined amount between you two? or is your old estimation (see my quote earlier in this thread) more correct?

Sorry about combining those. We took together that amount.
2.5g cinctulus and 7.5g medullosa per person.

Reviving this thread - unless anyone has an objection. Any further finds of these this year? Any solid info back on potency? Just curious because I have found quite a few in Estonia, in cleared forest habitats. Before coming across this thread I had no idea what they were, bit had remarked that some of the traits seemed to be rather similar to other psilocybe, including them smelling like strong libs as well as a slight removable pellicle. Just curious, would like to add them to my collection. Cheers!

"...I found dozens of single specimens.  That's what I call hunting.  There are only a few "good" hunters here, even now.  You're certainly in that group.  I would imagine if we hunted together we'd find our styles are similar."

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.
