Shroom Question 22-09-2004 02:28 (#2293481)
A mate and I went out today to check some local fields for shrooms. We usually get them from the same place every year but we wanted to see if we could get some more close to home. Anyway we found a few but we continued walking to the woods and we came to this clear where we seen white shrooms, sprouting that looked like magic mushrooms. We aren't sure but I could have sworn that I heard about magic mushrooms that you find in woods, is this true. Could be way off but we were just thinking are they white because of no sun (well sheltered)

Even if these don't match a description can somebody please tell me weither you find shrooms in woods and if there appearance or anything is changed.

BTW. Liberty Caps are what we find here in ireland.

if you go by looking for white mushrooms you will probably not end up too healthy

the temperate Psilocybes aren't common in undisturbed woodland settings around here, and you have a pretty similar climate, so I'd say the answer is no. amanita muscaria could be considered 'active' I suppose, but they wouldn't usually be all white.

and like was mentioned above, pure white mushrooms should generally be avoided if you're looking for psilocybin mushrooms, there are some that color that are edible, but none that are active AFAIK.
