latest Australian hunt!!
    #348831 - 06/25/01 08:20 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

After running out of prints way too fast, my friend and I endevoured to hunt up some more... Upon checking our usual patches, we noticed that the wavy cap specimen (Eucalyptus) and specimens of Ps. Cyanescens had not recovered for more fruiting after rain. A bit dissappointed, we decided to follow up a tip from someone, and low and behold, in areas we had already checked two weeks before, we found shite loads of Ps. Subaeruginosa... (apparently not as potent) It jst goes to show that when your looking for one species, another seems to pop up instead..:-) (this story has no point)
An interesting note is that these Subs had funny sort of lighter blotches on their caps similar to pics ive seen of Azurescens...

Yeah, alot of Psilocybe mushrooms(especially lignicolus species) will have this lighter "blotch" on the cap if it hasn't rained for a day or so. This reaction is called hygrophanous fading, and it starts from the center of the cap and will spread down further taking away color as it goes until the entire cap is eventually a lighter straw color altogether. The Psilocybe weilii I pick here are strongly hygrophanous, just an hour after picking the mushrooms will loose alot of color, if they were picked fresh that is. When picked dry I've seen weilii with almost white capsthe are so faded.
