Found Psilocybe Pelliculosa ? Help confirm ID please.
    #3343641 - 11/10/04 10:22 PM (12 years, 29 days ago)

Found these yesterday in Olympia, WA. They were growing on the roof of a gazebo. The roof is cedar shakes and is covered with decaying pine needles, dirt, wood and moss. There are 30 or 40 of them in an area about a square yard.

I'm not a mycologist and probably can't describe these very well with all the right terms, so I took some pics and included a quarter for relative size.

(click for big)






After looking at these and many pictures and descriptions I found online, I suspect these to be Psilocybe Pelliculosa, which some people call "Elf Stools".

The cap and stem are soft to the touch and the flash is moist and somewhat pliable but not wet or sticky.

They are lacking any distinctive odor.

I didn't have the guts to bite off a chunk and chew it up so I have no flavor to report.

If you could check out these pics and decide if you think my identification is correct, I'd appreciate it a bunch. Thanks!

nope, looks like a mycena, not edible or active.

if you take a sporeprint you'll notice it will be white, rather than the purple you should expect to see if it were a psilocybe.

Sorry those are not P. pelliculosa. They are a mycena or silmilar LBM adn are of no worthiness.

Sorry. pelliculosas sometimes appear int he city. Very rare but in a clearcut, they are massively abundant in alder.\

Well, that's a drag, but I appreciate the information. Glad I didn't eat them and asked first. :-)
