possible finds at 7000feet?
    #2932474 - 07/27/04 02:44 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

These kind of look like cubbies. The spore print is a very dark brown with a redish tint. gold caps. weather ranges from 50F - 85F
very wet lately, found in somewhat of a swampy area.

caps are about 1inch in diameter

a. mountins in colorado, in dirt, next to horse field
b. dark brown, red tint. gills
c. stem 2inch long, cap 1 inch diameter
d. solid whitish gold stem, thin
e. goldish/red cap
f. dark redish brown
g. no signs of bruising? stem looks too gold
h. smells like a mushroom (somewhat similar to mycelium?)


ill upload a pic of the print tomorrow

Those specimens aren't in very good shape. Dried mushrooms are tougher to ID than fresh ones. You can be pretty sure they're not "cubbies", assuming you mean Psilocybe cubensis. They look like Agrocybes at first glance.

Happy mushrooming!

cubes dont grow in CO according to this

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23483http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23483

but i too reside in the high country and would appreciate any stories that might help me search. I know locations are NOT allowed.

i was assuming that perhaps they would only be found in lower elevations, but i'm new to this state, and this sure aint Oregon.

By the way i'm up over 9000 ft.

well, P. cubensis would not be found in oregon at any elevation aside from small plastic bags and closets].

the only way i can say you might be able to find altitude information for psilocybes or oter psilocybian mushroom species is to know wich of them grow in a given area, then to research the habitat in wich those psilocybes are found. if the habitat for the target species is present at that altitude, there will be a chance that the the target species occurs there.

no psilocybes are known to me from colerado but there are two active gymnopilus species and a few others less common. the gyms might be a good bet for higher elevations [below treeline] as they are generaly adaptable to various conniferous and deciduous hardwoods.


--------------------



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.

The summer mushroom season is making a late start this year in Colorado. It's possible that there are some Gymnopilus up, but not many yet.

I have found Deadly Galerinas (Galerina autumnalis) already this year, in pretty good numbers. Hunters in Colorado need to be familiar with this species, to ensure they don't eat any of them.

Happy mushrooming!

So noone has any idea what these species might be? They look like cubies to me. Anyone else have any ideas on a possible species. There were also more amanitas found in the area as well as another species that looks just like the one posted except with a huge profound nipple. None of these bruised blue.

They really don't look like cubes. It's a dried mushroom, FFS, how can you make an ID on that?

ToxicMan already suggested that they might be some species of Agrocybe.

Wasnt trying to imply they were.......just that where i used to live in Oregon you couldnt seem to help but stumble onto a patch just out walkin the dog. :)

But i do have some interest in this thread as i have recently moved to the state in question.

Any info on high altitude shrooms would be appreciated.

Sorry to infringe on your thread dude.

peace

Ok ToxicMan so you2 are a fellow high altitude dweller!

And yes this summer in CO is odd as hell, it hasnt stopped raining here for a month......cant even enjoy the Harley.

I just moved here, bought a house, and was wondering if there would be any use in even looking round at altitudes over 8000-9000...........i live at 9400

I was just curious cuz there are a few cattle and a lotta dem dango llamas round where i live.

Is it worth a look?

peace

:wink: :wink: :wink:
