Poisonous Mushrooms???
    #335299 - 06/05/01 05:40 PM (17 years, 7 months ago)

For a while I've been interested in mushrooms, and decided to go on a little adventure to find some of my own. After picking them, I decided I would identify their species through descriptions and photographs, and just to make sure, test it for psyclobin. I've read that you can test it by having a solution mixture of 1:20, Metol to water, and place the stem of the specimen into the solution for half an hour, and if the water turns blue, than it contains psyclobin. Is this an effective test? My other, more important question is... are there any mushrooms out there that contain psyclobin but are also harmfully poisonous? Any advice for a beginner will be appreciated.

I wouldn't bother going to that extent, well, I would depending on what type of mushroom I was looking for and how sure I was, but anyway. Where did you find it? Growing from manure? Did it bruise blue when you cracked the stem and/or handled the mushroom?

You can usually be 99% sure of what you have got if the mushroom goes from manure. I'm not so sure about wood loving mushrooms as I have only a little experience with them.

If it does grow from manure and it does go blue, then you're pretty safe, but can always post some pictures here just for extra help IDing them. I've never heard of anyone ecept scientists doing Psilocybin tests, or a at-least I've never done one myself.

If you're a beginner, my personal reccomendation is to stick to dung-loving mushrooms to start with, as they're easy to identify and I don't know of any poisonous Psilocybin look-a-likes that grow from dung (Note: That doesn't mean they don't exist - they might, so be careful)
