Possible Psilocybe Alutacea
    #25935444 - 04/15/19 06:54 AM (2 months, 8 days ago)

This past Sunday me and a mate of mine both experienced in hunting psilocybe subaeruginosa decided to examine the condition of our spots in Central Victoria, Australia. We are keen on broadening our horizons and learning to identify other active species that grow in Victoria. Last season we found many subs and my mate has suspicions that other psilocybe species are around. Overall we found that it was far too dry and warm for subs to begin fruiting, however, we found a few non-actives at one of our spots and one that somewhat resembles psilocybe alutacea.

Habitat:
This specimen was found in a bush forest common of central Victoria, it was a dense area which seems to keep moisture in very well which we have noticed over several years. The mushroom itself appeared to be growing out of the ground and I suspect some kind of animal dung (likely kangaroo/wallaby).

Gills:
light tan/beige, attached, andexed?

Stem:
The stem is white and watery in texture.

Cap:
The cap is convex and light brown in colour, it is visibly translucent consistent with alutacea.

Bruising:
No bruising was observed.

Attached are photos of the specimen

Not a Psilocybe species. Looks like Psathyrella.

Thankyou for the ID I had my doubts hopefully I can find some alutacea this season.

For psilocybes, you want a thicker whiter stem. You shouldn't be able to see gill striations through the top unless it has been incredibly wet, and even then not all species do this. The cap will be meatier. It will bruise blue when damaged and smell like flour. The stem will break, not fray like provolone cheese in most cases.
