Could i get an ID?????
    #2992043 - 08/11/04 06:31 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hi!! I'm new on this forum, so id like to start by saying hullo to everyone.
But on to business. Its around the mid 70's to 80's, generrly humid, with on and off rain for the past few days. I found a large patch of an unidentifed species, that i belive to be Psilocybe semilanceata. As you can see in my pics we have a tanish golden cap, black gills, no vail, and a white hallow stem. The spore prints i did came out jet black with maybe a slight purple tint. So if i could get some second oppinions itd be greatly appriecieated

I think you have a Coprinus. Does the mushroom quickly turn into black goo?

by quickly he means from a few hours to 12-24 hours. it looks likely to be Coprinus to me aswell, and the look of that sporeprint seems to confirm delliquescence [the dissolution of the mushroom's cap into a black goo].

another good possibility is Panaeolus. what was the habitat?

it is by no means P. semilanceata. the spore print is wrong, the season/temperature is wrong, and P. semilanceata is a viscose, pelliculose species with grey/brown gills becomming purple with sporulation and has a rubbery, pliant stipe.

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.

Just out of curiosity, what state are you in?


If you're in the wrong state, you might never find libs.

You won't find Liberty Caps in MA. They grow in the fall in the Pacific North West.

I've heard they might grow in NY but I've yet to see any proof.
