Question about Gyms
    #3118186 - 09/10/04 01:16 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Why does it say in many FAQs on this site to avoid the Big Laughing Gyms? I know they're bitter, but is there something else bad about them? Im bummed out because they're probably the only ones i'll ever find, and now im reading that they're to be avoided.

Gyms are similar to Galerina. Both have the same color spores and some have rings. In the Galerina Genus there are deadly poisonous species. So a mistake in identification could take your life. That is probably the reason.

Also Galerinas blacken when bruised dont mistake that for the bluing bruises of psilocybe. Just be sure.

They both have rusty brown spores. These mushrooms are vey similar. Have you eaten these before? If you havent then take a picture and post it on the identification post before eating. There are a few species that are almost inactive. aeruginosus and luteofolius are mildly active. lut. looks almost exactly like the deadly galerina. You should be all right with aer. just dont mistake it as a Pholiotina.
