P. pelliculosa in southwest WA
    #3166935 - 09/22/04 10:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I went hunting today around the Centralia/Chehalis area of southwest Washington and found what I am almost positive is P. pelliculosa. I compared them to dozens of pictures and descriptions and they seem to match perfectly.
Please forgive me, I do not have a digital camera. I need to know if there is any P. pelliculosa look alikes in southwest Washington that I could be mistaking these for, and if so, would consumption cause sickness? I don't know anybody personally that is very familiar with mushroom hunting so I have nobody else to ask.
Thanks!

The Psilocybe pelliculosa does not come up until the first couple of weeks in November. It is common and abundant in clearcuts in the PNW in mass growth and as many as sometimes hundreds of thousands of specimens growing in the clearcuts where alder bark is smashed up and alder trees grow in the trails of the first bulldozers through the clear cuts.

last year @cro and I posted some images and the year before Roadkill and I posted images of such growths in the sound region.

Sometimes a small colony of a hundred or so may appear in a mulched city garden in a public park or apt-condo complex garden, etc.

But that is rare.\

There are a lot of mycenas which grow around pines and such which resemble P. pelliculosa in their physical shape as do some species of conic to cone-shaped Psathyrellas do.

Thanks MJ, I was hoping I was lucky. Oh well, I still found an aminita that is nearly ten inches in diameter so thats pretty cool.
