so i found these little things in my yard...
    #3240145 - 10/10/04 09:28 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i live in northern california and i think i found some psilocybe cyanescnes growing in mulch infront of my house. they match the description spot on. i have not taken a spore print, im still tryin to figure that one out. (if anyone wants to give me simple, easy, directions it would be great :smile:.) here is a pic...what do you guys think. they are sort of dried out (and description says they fade to tan as they dry) but the flash is on so they look lighter than they really are. http://www.shroomery.org/forums/files/04-41/745867090-shrooms.jpg

is there any safe way to test them. like a test kit that will test for the prescence of psilocybin...or ingest a small portion of it?

thanks alot...any input is much appreciated.

start reading here... there is a good deal of info needed for an accurate
identification... also, there is no remote linking to that picture
unless you upgrade your account

I agree, they don't look like them.

Its hard to tell from just the pics you supplied - they don't show the stipe and gills at all. They look superficially like Psilocybe cyanescens. Are the spores purple-brown? You can tell by looking at the gills of the older individuals or (better) by taking a spore print. Purple-brown will look something like a deep brownish black with a somewhat purple sheen if you look at under the right kind of light.

The next question, of course - do they stain blue? Of course, I have to make the standard disclaimer here - not every blue staining mushroom contains psilocybin and you should never consume a mushroom solely on that basis. However, if you are dealing with a mushroom with the general appearance of a Psilocybe or Panaeolus, the spore color is a match, and it stains a noticeable phosphorescent blue - then you're dealing with a psilocybin-containing Psilocybe or Panaeolus species.

If you do know that you're dealing with Psilocybe, then there's no need for any kind of test kit - the psilocin content correlates directly with the degree of bluing exhibited by the mushroom.

Spore print quote from darkstar(if anyone wants to give me simple, easy, directions it would be great :smile:.)

Remove stem and let cap dry gill side down for 24 hours on white paper.

Just ibecause the stems of your finds look blue to you, does not mean that they are REALLY blue. I speak from experience about that. Just in case they pass your blueing test, I wanted to post a picture of a spore print to compare your finds to.



Happy hunting and don't eat any new shroom without having it ID'd properly first.

Those look too big to be cyans.
