Official European Psilocybe serbica thread - season 2021 * 7
    #27474406 - 09/19/21 02:42 PM (2 months, 11 days ago)

Serbies have started ! Earlier than ever perhaps. Was surprised to see them today. Found them in a completely unknown location following my serbica intuition. They are very small, and haul was weak, but they will get fatter with time. They peak in fatness during the winter.

I didn't want to narrow more than Europe for this year, since not many people hunt this species, but it will also be good to see level of variation in P.serbica throughout the Europe. Hopefully this thread will be genesis for future separation to many European regions and countries.

Also, I will provide some guidance for begginer hunters interested in this species. All questions concerning P.serbica are more than welcomed, and I would be more than happy to see your finds posted here.

Today's finds (19.09.2021):



















Habitat (see picture): Mostly Abies alba forest mixed with Pinus sp, and occasional hardwood here and there. Mushrooms were growing from a wet decomposed wood.



Day/night temperatures: 23°C/9°C
Altitude: 1000m
___________________________________
NOOBS BE ADVISED:

1. Pine, fir and beech forests, are the absolute key on finding this species. Please avoid all the other kinds of woodland. Rubus spp are the best plant indicators, and Macrolepiota procera is the absolute best mushroom indicator species for serbies. If parasol is near, you are getting closer.

2. Be careful when picking this species. It grows alongside another woodlover - deadly poisonous Galerina marginata. Please study the following pictures:







Psilocybe serbica is on the left !

3. Psilocybe serbica does not bruise instantly to deliberate damage or picking (but very often mushrooms exhibit blue staining while unpicked). It takes at least about 10 minutes for bruising to show. This almost tricked me first time I ever found it, almost threw it away due to the lack of bruising.
Bruising intensifies after 15 minutes:

Nice ones! Those are some good looking mushrooms. Great post too! Looking forward to lurking here for a bit.

Is it worth looking at lower attitude 200-300 meters above sea or no chance?
Do this really need high attitude to appear?

I am not aware of any case this species was found at alt lower than 500m. I believe it is possible, but not at this time of year, perhaps later in season. This species really prefers relatively high mountains with old growth forests. I would be happy to see it being found as low as that.

That said, you could use temperatures as an indicator, when day drops under 20, and night under 10, lots of rain falls, you might get lucky regardless of the altitude - if you are in the right habitat. Don't be discouraged in advance, there is only one way to know for sure, which is to go out there.

No serbies at last year's locations, but no worries for me, I found yet another patch. They are slowly getting fatter.

In a pine forest, growing from wood debris, partially hidden by retarded mambo jumbo Rubus and Dryopteridaceae plants, so look closely !

Good day good people😁

These are my latest Serbica finds, growing at about 1300m in Macedonia. Beautiful as always.
