Cope Cyans! I hope!
    #2852150 - 07/02/04 06:38 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hey everyone. A freind and I went hunting about a week ago, and we didn't find any cubes like we were looking for, but we stublmed across a small patch of what we think are cope cyans. we found them in a field in south/central florida. When we picked them, they quickly bruised (unlike any of the other similar looking mushrooms we saw), but I am hesitant to say that they bruised BLUE. it almost is more of a blackish. but since I've never seen them before I dont know what to expect. The sporeprint, as you should be able to see, is jet black. If you dont think they are cyans, what else could they be? Black spores, bruised very dark color, and look identical to the cyans i've seen on the site.

Here are a few crappy pics I got. the one with the card is when they were wet, and in the other one, they are dry and next to the sporeprint. thanks for any help!

That is a pretty crappy pic, some of them look good and some do not. The blue does often appear rather black to me.

hehe yea the pics are even worse than I thought online! I guess the compression blurred them up a bit.

But I know they are all the same kind. The trip over the fence in the bag broke some of them up into small pieces. Now I'm not at all into eating unidentified mushrooms, but do you think I would be safe to mix these with some cubes and make tea? There's only 1/2 gram dry there, and I only have about 2 grams of cubes that I wanna split with a friend. What do you think, now I'm pretty sure their cyans but I'd feel better with a few more posative posts like ^^! thanks a lot!

Wait for a positive id...it usually wont take long
Also if you only have 2 dry of cubes you will need more if you are gonna be spliting them...

Cant tell from the pictures, however the one on the very bottom of the first picture does look promising.

The other ones look weird, the colors are off...but, its hard to tell.

As long as those are bruising blue, I guess you're safe...Where did you find them? (State/habitat)

Hey, yea sorry about the pics! Time for a new camera....and a photography class lol.

All of the mushrooms there are the same kind. THey were broken up in the bag which is why they look so un-appitizing. They were all growing from the same clump of cow manure in a field in southern/central Florida.
On the same trip, we found many similar looking mushrooms that did NOT bruise at all. That is why im almost sure these are cyans. The spore print was jet black and they matched the discription exactly in all other areas. And even if they aren't active cyans, really all they could be is some other kind of inactive pan. right?
I can almost make out a blue color where I cut the stem off of the cap on the big one. I'm just double checking because of the black look to the bruising.
Thank you to all who have responded, I do appreciate the help!

They all kinda look like Copelandia mushrooms to me.
-Your picture is not good enough to be for-sure about that.

Always remember...CROP before Compress.

ya, those look pretty kicked. You didn't put those shrooms in a PLASTIC bag, did you??

Until I had confirmation that these were in fact 100% Copelandia Cyans, I would have to say....nope, not safe to consume that 1/2 gram of "unsure" mushrooms.
