Need ID: blue bruising shroom from NZ
    #3093853 - 09/05/04 03:51 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hey all,

A couple of months back I found this mushrooms growing here in South Island, New Zealand
from some cow manure on pasture. Me and a couple of other people have since been trying to figure
out what exactly it is.

Habitat: from cow manure in pasture, near coast.
Cap: varied from 1-3cm broad. colour ranged brown - yellow
Gills: purple. Don't know what type of gills
Stem: white-yellow with some scaling. Went blue on bruising. 3-8cm long
Sporeprint: dark purple-brown

here are some pics of the shroom (sorry about quality)









Recently zee_werp and I used our friend's microscope and took some pictures.

surface of gill 400x:

From these pics you can see the spores. we took spore measurements but I don't have them here (will update :smile:)

Anyone have any ideas? It doesn't fit description of any mushrooms normally found here. Ideas that Ive considered: Pan. Subbalteatus, Ps. Tasmaniana.

Livestock have been shipped here directly from worldwide, and grass seed has been imported (bringing with it Ps. semilanceata).

I also have photos and measurements of spores from local Ps. makarorae and Ps. subaeruginosa(400x/1000x). I'll post them soon :grin:

Hey man...yeah I forgot to leave those spore dimensions with you the other day. The measurements we took were:

Ps. subaeruginosa: W= 5.781um L=9.453um
Ps. makarorae: W= 5.0um L= 7.501 um
Un ID shroom: W= 6.825um L=11.35um

These measurements were averages from 10 spore observations each.

so no-one has any idea what these are then?

Apparently they are lacking pleurocystidia which rules out a whole bunch of species: Pan. subbs, Ps. Subaeruginosa, Ps. Tasmaniana etc

They are coprophilious, and the only other species from the psilocybe genus found round here are Ps. (sub)coprophilia and Ps. argentina
(in both of these species the appearance of pleurocystidia is rare). Both of these are non-active and
therefore do not bruise blue, which this one did.

So I am at a loss!!! What are these obviously psilocybian mushrooms?!?!?

Surely not a *new species?
