The two that look the same and are in all the photos are Psilocybe cubensis. Worth keeping. I'm betting you found them in a cow paddock and when you crack the stem it will stain blue. Make sure you have 100% ID before eating. They should bruise blue.

You have to be kidding me. I could have sworn they where cubensis. If they wheren't growing in cow manure then maybe not. The stem should bruise a distinctive blue when fresh. If they're a bit old they might be too dry. Shit. I can't wait till mjshroomer or someone checks this out, if they're not cubies they're the best look-a-likes I've ever seen. The gills do look a bit too reddy in color, they're usually browny/grey. Wait and see what the others say, they usually come on between 6-10am our time.

heh hmm.. well I picked them at about uhh 12:30.. so that'd be 5 and a half hours ago.. The cap is going a bit purply at the edges. I'm currently taking two prints. The stem is a lil bit purply on the outside, but I've split it in two and it's yellow inside and the colour's not changing at all.. :/

they look like the same lawn mower mushrooms ive seen everywhere.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.

those dont look like cubensis. the gills are all wrong. cubensis (or any psilocybe for that matter) have chocolait-brown to slightly purple gills that may in some speceis turn very dark with age.
there are a few species of non-psilocybes i have collected in forest area with the same pinkish-brown gills as those that bruise purple. they are not psychoactive however.

madness never slows down, it only piles up.

also psilocybe cubensis mushrooms have a purple veil in their stems... (unless it has fallen because of rain) but check this pic
<img src="https://files.shroomery.org/files/339185-cubensis011.jpg">

with all due respect to wombat... i think that if your not yet competent to identify a p. cubensis mushroom, its not very good idea to tell someone that he indeed has such mushroom
do you realize that you can get people kill themselves???
at least you told this guy not to eat after 100% sure.
have you ever seen a p. cubensis with detail???

I hope so - or else I'm in real trouble...:D Lucky we have "experts" like you to keep people like me from killing ourselves! (you dickhead)

AIRDOG's picture:


A crap photo of my catch before last:

My favourite picture of a cubensis, taken on the weekend. Sorry to keep showing this off, but I just love the photo:


Granted I am far from the most experienced mushroom hunter here - in fact I'm a relative newbie - but the guy lives down under and PMed for my opinion, which I gave to him.  I did warn that the gills where a funny color, I did tell him that they should stain blue and I did tell him to wait until someone more experienced came to ID. I did not tell him to go and eat them, (AIRDOG), in fact I insisted the he don't eat them if they didn't 1) grow from manure 2) bruise blue - so keep your flames to yourself and stop trying to big note, know-it-all. The fact is that they do look like cubies. I overlooked the gill color becasue I thought it was the photograph. Also not all cubes have a purple veil at all. In fact most of mine (see photos) it has fallen off and on top of that, different strains look different. Those look alot like Australian cubes. Nonetheless, I did make a potentially dangerous mistake. I highly doubt they're poison though.

Mitch's right, the gills are wrong but I did mention that in my ID. I think it serves as an example of a good look-a-like cubensis.

Neat find.

Those two cubie lookin ones might be Psathyrella conissans (The Red Gilled Psathyrella), or one of its look-a-like variations of Psathyrella sublateritia or Psathyrella spadicea.

If you want to be certain, take a spore print.

These are the colors of the spore prints of the three mushrooms mentioned above;

conissana - Pinkish-red
sublateritia - Brick-red
spadicea - brown to purplish-brown

Definately dont eat them. I dont think the are poisonous but they sure are not edibles.

Caps have that cubensis look to them, but,
The gills are wrong color.
The stems are all wrong.
No bluing.
Not found on cow shit.
And no dark purple veil.

Keep shroomin,
GG

Hi JJ, if those are oranged colored gills then they are not P. cubensis.. Look at Wombats pictures. Those are P. cubensis.

have a shroomy day,

Mj

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.

They look like some type of Inocybe to me. They are definately not something you want to eat. Inocybes have buff to clay brown spores. Inocybes are very common and many are poisonous.
