Loc: gone with my shrooms
Campus Mushroom Hunt: Shrooms, Squirrels and Wasson
    #2700078 - 05/19/04 08:24 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Well I took a trip tot he UW library the other day.

Found the following mushrooms. There was one onther species I photographed all dried fromthe sun. But the image was too blurred to post. So here is my Campus adventure.

I found these Conocybes growing on a lawn on campus. Notice the watery clear white stems of this cConocybe. with a light bluish velvety furry stipe, but very clear. Watery clear.

If this would have been cyanopus, the base of the stem would have been azure blue.

This next musrhoom I photographed first the cap. However, the cap was bllurred sop I am only showing the gill side of this shroom.

And here are five images of a large cluster of some kind of Agrocybe or maybe not. Any guesses would be appreciated.

a closer photo of the above image

A large cluster in the bush one to two feet away form the above image

and finally the last of the unidentified shrooms on campus from yesterday.

And now I came upon this Squirrely happening at a local garbage can on campus/.

and so I move in closer for the shoot.

and even closer

Okay now guys, gals, shroomers and other strange beings who walk the face of the Shrooemry.

Here I am presenting images of where it all began.

This is the book I had to look at while int he University of Washignton's Special Editions Rare Book Room at the library on campus.

This is how the whole Shroom Idea began.

with Valentina P. And R. Gordon Wasson's Two Volume set of 512 copies of "Mushrooms, Russia and History.

Volume one traces shroom use back through the ages and presents research on mushrooms in general, Amanitas, Boletes, Rusullas, etc and the Soma.

In VOlume two we get the Aztec History, photos of a ceremony and the following images are from the Wasson books, Photographed with permission.

Vol. 1.

Vol. 2.

Some mushroom representations from the Spanish Codices.

And now the only colored image from the 2nd volume of Psilocybe species.

Number one is Psilocybe mexicana Heim.
Number two is Psilocybe cubensis (Earle) Singer.
Number three is Psilocybe caerulescens Murrill.

I will say that the water color in the bottom right hand corner is suppose to represent P. cubensis as little babies to the stringy one oin the image, but cubes do not get that skinny.

Not sure who the water color is by since i t is not signed by Roger Heim who did all the water colors int he Wasson & Heim Books, Les Hallucinogenes Champignons of Mexique.

And there you have it. My adventure on the way to the library/.

Does the blue in that Conocybe variety indicate activity, as is present in the Cyanopus? I wasn't aware of activity in Conocybes outside of the aforementioned. Don't get so close to those squirrels- they are known to pack heat and are not stable enough for experimentational photography.

Was the squirrel active? what genus was he? what color did he bruise? did u eat him? -- remember everyone, never eat anything unidentified.
