Help! Trying to identify this mushroom- class of Psilocybe ?
    #3399736 - 11/23/04 07:41 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I live in the NW Portland Oregon area. Recently Made a trip to the coast and ran across several species of mushrooms that look like Psilocybe cyanescens... but not sure! The stems are more carmel colored than white, and they dont bruise blue. They have the nipples on the tops and have a chocolate brown color spore print. They do not have the ring on the stems near the cap, so I dont think they are Galerina autumnalis. I put a stem in a solution of developer which also turned brown. Here are some pics:




Thanks for the help!!!

That is definitly not a Cyan and I couldn't tell you what it is, you'll have to wait for one of the more experienced mushroom minded posters here to tell you that...

The rusty spore print points towards some type of Galerina  :thumbdown:

Keep searching  :thumbup: :grin:

Given that spore print color and how fibrous the cap appears, my first guess would be some type of Inocybe. Do they have a distinctive odor? If you don't detect one at first, try putting all of them together in your cupped hands to concentrate the smell and try sniffing again. Most Inocybes have unpleasant odors.

Happy mushrooming!

Hi tntelle,


They look like two different species to me. Neither is a Psilocybe, and neither is active.

Psilocybe cyanescens will always bruise blue. Cyan is Latin for a shade of blue, and the suffix escens translates being/becoming, literally "of essence."  Psilocybe cyanescens = Psilocybe which essentially is/becomes blue. The same is true for P. Azurescens; the difference is in the shade of blue, cyan vs. azure.

For future ID requests it would be helpful to see a photo of the bottom of the cap with the stem still attached. It is also important to tell us what they were growing from, (from a rotten hardwood log, on the ground under evergreens, in a grassy field, etc.) 

Welcome to the shroomery! :smile:

Thanks everyone! To answer the question of the smell.. I had a table full of these guys down stairs and I had to throw them all away and light several high potency candles to get rid of the odor! They were growing in a rather moist, semi dead mossy-swampish area. I wish I knew what type of trees were around, but I'd have to go back to find out more info. Happy Hollidays! -Todd
