active dung mushrooms in alberta
    #3137005 - 09/15/04 01:00 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

early last month while picking dung mushrooms in british columbia i came across some dung mushrooms i believe are active shams. they grow up out of cow dung, standing up to about two inches, with broad dome-shaped cream colour to golden brown color caps. the caps measured approx an inch wide at average, and the spore prints give a dark violet-ish to black print...

i can't find these mushrooms ANYWHERE on the net, but at the local bookstore in bc i possitively identified the mushrooms as a psilocybe species. the name resembled something like 'psilocybe merderia' or 'psilocybe merdrea'. it seems as though the species doesn't exist outside this book [which i can't find anywhere now].

the picture in the book was labelled as being found in alberta, so i figured i'd take a look when i got back home, and sure enough they grow everywhere here. i could pick pounds without worry of ever being caught in plain daylight...

does anyone have any tips here.

Neither of those species are psychoactive,
