    #3470103 - 12/09/04 01:15 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

hi, i've done lotsa research but i am confused on a few things please could you iron these out for me;
are witches hats, ageing liberty caps.
are there any other uk naturally growing shrooms other than, libs, cyans and the red warty ones.
do these mushrooms only appear from september to december, or is there another time, coming out of winter when the fruiting appears.

heh well sry for my bad english skills, and thx for ur help. :confused:

During summer months you can find ps.subaerginosa, and pan.subbalteatus (im pretty sure). Witches hats are hygrocybe conica, while the lib is psilocybe semilanceata, 2 completely different mushrooms, the witches hat is bright reddish orange that stains black, whilst the lib is a taller skinnier brown mushroom that only sometimes bruises greenish on the stems.

So NO, witches hat are not aging liberty caps.

Someone else could help you out on mushrooms that grow in ur area of the UK.

Good luck and welcome to the shroomery!

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere somebody called Psilocybe semilanceata Witches Hats. The problem with using common names is that they are regional. So what is called by some name in one place may be a completely different mushroom in another. That's the reason why we usually try to use the scientific names for most mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!

I think i've read somewhere of hygrocybe conica possibly having some psychoactive effect. Probably not that pleasant, judging from its toxicity. Does anyone know what toxins it actually has?
Thanks

No, 'I' don't know what toxnis it has, but I'm sure it's not psychoative, possibly if it even is assured 'unedible' or ' poisonous', I'm sure someone 'shroom lover would have eaten x amounts :P, to see if it is psychoactive.
























Pissed :P

Hey Shroomie of Doomie,

You again have provided some mis-information to this newbie.

Quote:

During summer months you can find ps.subaerginosa




If you need to know what grows where, there is a link in the General info area to the Worldwide Distribution of species by Guzm?n, Me and Gartz.

And there is also P. fimetaria and P. strictipes ( the latter macroscopically resembles a liberty cap.

the poster of this thread indicates he is from the UK.

P. subaeruginosa is only known of in Australia and Tasmania, never in England.

thats why I said im pretty sure, I know aussies were finding subaergs, I wasnt sure if it was UK too. I was throwing a guess at it, since I was pretty sure.

If you didn't notice I also added
"Someone else could help you out on mushrooms that grow in ur area of the UK."

And you need a chill pill today your drilling me in almost all my posts... I sense some tension there Santa.
