Shrooms found in UK - need ID please
    #3052354 - 08/26/04 09:36 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I found these shrooms in a field at the back of my house in Gloucester. I'm 99% sure they are liberty caps.

My wife foolishly ate some before I had told her it was OK to do so, and she said she felt tingly like the last time we ate some psilocybe cubensis, so they must be the real deal.

Cheers

Hmm - the shrooms I picked are mature and were found in dry conditions, so they are bigger and lighter in colour than the ones in the pics above.

Some other stuff - the edge of the head is always curved inwards, not outwards. The stems go bluish when you crush them, they are the right colour, shape and size to be caps.

So why are these not caps? And if they're not caps, what are they?

I think you have serveral different species there. The shroom on the top picture on the right with the almost closed cap could be a P. Semilanceata but it is impossible to tell, the rest are not. Its hard to describe the difference but the shape of your shrooms are almost perfectly hemisherical, P. Semilanceata are more conical and pointed with a pronouced nipple. I'm sure others on here will give you an ID on them.

edit, i think the shroom on the top left of the second picture is one of the Panaeolus, possibly Panaeolus sphinctrinus. I have been finding loads of these, i took this a couple of days ago.
