Hey just got back from a local field here is what i found , this one i think is a cubensis here is another picture it was found by itself on a cow pie. these other ones i dont know but i think they are active but want to get a positive ID here is another picture they were found on various cow pies and i just threw them together because they looked the same. now these 3 have orange gills and i dont know what they are if you could tell me if these are active/edible i would appreciate it thank you.
Im not one to give a cubensis Id coz i never picked them b4. but it looks like all the pics of cubes ive seen. The other shrooms might be cope cyans if they bruise blue and have black spore print. The last definately aint active. Of course dont eat anything until someone with more experience gives a positive ID.
do NOT mix your collections. this is the easiest way to poison yoursel and you make the job of anyone trying t oID your find much more diicultf.
the mushroom in the first two pictures is a P. cubensis.
the msurhooms in the next two are a mixed collection, mostly of some Panaeolus species.
the last picture looks to be Conocybe lactea, a toxic species.
Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
forget the last ones, that's the ones in the cowpies you don't want.
You've got some nice cope cyans in the other pics but they're mixed up like the others said. When I first started picking blue meanies, I would snip the lower 1/4 inch of the stem from all panaeolus I collected, wait overnite and the following morning discard any mushroom that didn't stain blue in the snipped area. I'm NOT recommending this method! because it's not foolproof. Everything that appears to bruise blue is not necessarily safe. Become familiar with the blue meanies first.
