what zebes said :smile:

familiarise yourself with p. subaeruginosa's and also the lookalikes you might find in the same habitat - eg. deadly galerina's.

p. sub's will bruise a strong blue, galerina's bruise black(?).

yeah galerinas are very common in may-june in melbourne = as are little red stropharias - bothj will make you very unwell.
there a heaps of ways to differentiate = stropharias have yellow stems and red caps, but can look qwuite similar, galerinas have a annular ring around the stem as below:

While Stropharia ruguso-anualata is quite edible. Other stropharias are usually described as questionable.

Here are three iamges of a red Stropharia







Without a red cap.

Stropharia hofmannii






And some Galerina mushrooms which are deadly poisonous







And John Allen's [paper, Magic Mushrooms of Australia and New Zealand is published on erowid at their mushroom section of their site.

YEs Blue Meanie,

That is what the first three images are of - Stropharia auriantica.

mj

and have a shroomy day and look out for Galerina's. They can look similar to the P. auriginosa and can also grow under a cluster or clump of them. They do the at with P. cyanescens and P. stunbtzii in America.

I am just blown away by the variety and similarity of these mushrooms. This is obviously not something you learn quickly. Psilocybe cubensis (gold tops) seems to be common around sydney also.
Its scary how much P subs and Galerinas look alike. Can anyone tell me the key differences?

if you pick them on wood they are subaeruginosa and allies - if you pick them on shit in spring, they arew cubies or pans...

yep the ones we got were from cow dung,between worrying about farmers shooting you and the law out at windsor,growing at home was my best option though.
they weren't very good either,i think because we were really really newbs  back then and we were picking the big over-ripe ones.
the thing that still haunts me is we swear they seemed to be popping up in places we had looked earlier,like half an hour before and as soon as dusk fell......

i just wanted to post a pic from which i aquired at a site where the owner (Q Baxter) pics shrooms from aus and takes pictures, he had a pic of some shrooms from the genus psilocybe but left the species unidentified

heres the pic



to me dont even look like a psilocybe because the stems arent white
but this is probably due to their dryness , if i had a guess id say
eucalypta maybe BM or MJ or any other vets could say but prob not as they are dry and all ... i just want to see what other peeps think of it sorry bout the OT reply and all but im not gonna start a new thread over this

peace

Those are almost certainly a slight variant on your average subaeruginosa - they have quite greyish stems.
Upon drying they can look like that as below:
