I found some mushrooms, need help with ID
    #2821175 - 06/23/04 03:44 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

OK i know its going to be tough to ID them, cause they are just small brown mushrooms. I doubt they are magic mushrooms, but i just wana know if it would be a good/bad idea to eat them. Like would eating them be totaly safe, probably make me sick, or kill me.





The habitat i found it in is Connecticut. It is spring and the temperature is humid and around 70-80 degrees. I found it growing on dirt/grass. It was just on the lawn. It was also in the shade.
The gills... i dont know much about other than what you can see from the pictures, i may be able to make a spore print later... my guess for now is the spores are brown.
The diameter of the cap is about 1/2 inch and the stem is about 3 inches.
The stem is thin and hollow, and a lighter tan than the cap.
The cap is a darker tan, and is a little slimy. You can see the gills threw the cap around the edges of some of the mushrooms.
The mushroom bruises to a clear color, or just the same color as it was, just a little wetter.
Any advice would be appreciated, or if somone can tell me what other details are needed to id it, i will try the best i can. THanks for the help.

I'm guessing they're Panaeolina foenisecii.

IF they are panaeolina foenisecii would that mean that they are ok to eat? It sais they may contain a small amount of psilocybin. I was figuring take a few to see if it makes me sick or not (keep a few in case i need to go to the hospital) and then if everything is cool just eat a ton, see if i cant get a trip or not. I am guessing your just going to tell me not to eat an unidentified mushroom, but i am thinking there arent really any poisoness mushrooms in connecticut. I doubt theres anything that would kill me, maybe make me really sick, but that wouldn't be the end of the world.

Man, that's got to be one of the most ignorant things I ever read. If you dont think that there are any poisoness mushies in CT, then why dont you just eat everything you pick to find out. I guarantee you that there are poisoness species there. Eating a mushroom that you have no clue what it is, is just plain dumb. I wouldn't eat those if I were you. Also, even if they are Pan Foens, trust me they are not active. The only reason people think that they are is because sometimes a few Pan Subbs get picked along with them and people don't notice it. Ask mjshroomer about them, he tell you whoever told you that they are active is full of shit.

Get a spore print and You can be guaranteed with
almost 100% certainty they are pan foens... Purpleish brown I believe...

My ID guide lists them as edible but of no value..
Possibly pa consumed in large quantities.
Most reports are from the North East...
I personally feel, they were a type of panaeolus
confused with pan foens..

Stop looking in the grass and look in horse manure/construction hay....for panaeolus subbalteatus....
I'm from RI and found alot over the last few weeks....

Personnaly I wouldn't eat them.. I had about 20 yesterday... That I threw out....

Yours also look similar to a species of psathyrella that I find fruiting under maple around this area... Don't eat them... find the real deal and get back to us... Good Luck,,,, keep on hunting... Nofindum.....

All I've found in the grass so far are panaeolina foenisecii .....

My hunting partner is gone, I miss her so!

Pan. foes, if containing any psilocibin at all, which is the 'rumoured' alkaloid they hold, only have very small traces of %. So you'd have to eat alot of them, and they can be mildly toxic so it's best to just shot 'em.

Pan. foes, are said to contain very small traces of psilocybin, but they are also said to be mildly toxic so the amount you would have to eat to achieve any effects would probably cause mild stomach upset. Best thing just throw 'em.

nofindum the spore print of a panaeolina foenisecii doesnt resemble the color purple whatsoever... its a light brown infact! and i say this everyday but, THEY ARE NOT ACTIVE AT ALL. They contain no psilocybin whatsoever, they have been tested in the east, west, central, north, and south america! THEY ARE NOT ACTIVE! some kid ate some and tripped because he probably got a pan sub mixed in with them at one point. panaeolina foenisecii isnt not active and it can be edible in small amounts but if you eat 30 or more your bound to end up with the runs!

to clear it up once and for all and end the spreading of false information the panaeolina foenisecii is infact and proven to be non active.
