First Weilii of the year?
    #2782385 - 06/10/04 05:34 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys. Im trying my best to type with my broken knuckles, so try and cope with me. I went hunting today in Northwest Georgia, and found several specimens. One kinda looks like some sort of Amanita, the other looks like Weilii. The only thing is, the top of the weilii cap looks blue like the one in the Psilocybe Mushrooms of The World by Paul Stamets book, and thats why it doesnt look brown like normal. Perhaps since I found this weilii in the woods in direct sunlight, its possible that the cap could have faded. Ill leave some pics for you guys to look at. Lemme know what you guys think. Im sorry if I didnt give enough information about these shrooms. My hand hurts soo bad so Ill tell you anything else you guys would need to know about
them.

Here is the weilii (i hope):

And heres the amanita lookin thing:


Thanks guys.

Yes, we need more details than that plus Your photos are foggy. The second one definately seems to be one of ~750 species of Russula.

And I really don't think the first one is Psilocybe weilii. I can hardly tell it is a mushroom in that photo though... I'm not very informed about P. weilii but I think it is too early and it (doesn't seem to) look like weilii.
Remember that sporeprint of P. weilii is chocolate to purple-brown.

Have you found Weilii before? You need a spore print, it just looks like an old mushroom. Does it smell like cheap lipstick, or cucumbers? I do not think that is a Weilii, but they get weird looking usually due to it being cold. (not the case here) and often do not look like the pictures in books. I will tell you what people told me before I found one, Once you find them you will always be able to tell if you have one, they are just so distinctive from anything else. Experience is key.

first off, ivi... your chosen picture of weilii is a horrible one at that... 99.9% of thw weilii ive found do NOT look like the one in your pic... I think erowid (where you got the pic) might of unwisely tooken a submission by another uninformed hunter.

second.. ShroominDawg... DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE EAT THAT MUSHROOM! I've seen it alot and it's anything but a weilii. It's blue yes and so are alot of other mushrooms that are POISONOUS. I can guarantee you thats no weilii.

Anyways goodluck this season, remember those hundreds we walked upon shroomindawg? well that spot died, but I know youve got the heart to keep lookin and learning.

With such confidence at 2am, we walked the 4-5 or so miles down to the beach where the african slaves lie like lions waiting on tourist prey.

btw, ivi, the pic you chose is a weili iI was just making a point... weilii are so universal in their appearence... alot like the human race. However that picture fails to outline the most distinctive features of a weilii such as their ridges along the cap. It's just an extremely unique weilii pic and undetailed is all. It should at that reinforce the elusive behavior of both their growing ground and their appearance.

THESE ARE NOT NEW PICS
Psilocybe weilii



These are some ones from last year, but not the best examples. The normal looking specimens are still on my camera.
