    #3362344 - 11/15/04 01:37 AM (12 years, 25 days ago)

Hey I got a question for the experienced azure pickers out there. I recently picked alot of what I believe to be azures. Some are bluing alot, some not at all, I would post my pics but I'm unable to make my camera work with my pc. My question is are there any poisonous look a likes of azures?

Yes there are deadly Galerinas that look like azures and other psilocybes. Throw away any of the mushrooms that do not blue. Throw away any mushrooms that do not give a correct spore print. Throw away any mushrooms that do not yield a spore print. Throw away any mushrooms you cannot ID with 100% certainty.

Everything I say in these posts is a made up fiction.

Always toss any mushroom that you have any doubt about, it's not worth being poisoned by a look-a-like!

I'm still waiting on a spore print. But the mushrooms I found in Hammond look alot like azures. Caramel to chestnut cap with white edges. Brown gills with nice white stems. 3-5 in length stem. I found them in sandy soil.

Soft Rat,
The three deadly specis of Galerina only resmble P. cyanescens and P. stuntzii in the caps colors and wavy ness. Their stems are com[pletely different. Galerina stems are orchreceous as in orange ot cinnamon with a white ring on the stem. and they do not resemble P. azurescens.

And P. cyanescens and P. azurescens have pure white stems which stain blue when damaged. But the azure caps do not resemble the caps of P. cyanescens or P. stuntzii.

I have comparison pitures posted in Shroomery's Ultimate Shroom Guide under the Species Section
