Differences between cyans and azures
    #3511397 - 12/17/04 12:15 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Can anyone tell me the differences between cyans and azures? I found a handful of psilocybes at the oregon coast today thay key out in Mushrooms Demystified like cyans, but there is no azures in that book.
Thanks.

Yeah.. Azures are really potent. I don't know about a wet dose, but if I remember correctly a little over a gram dry should do you in quite nicely.

well I think you're dosage questions have been answered, if you're interested in other facts, it seems azures have a more specific niche here in the PNW, specifically along the coasts of WA and OR, while cyans tend to be more inland and in "city" environments.  both grow on woodchips, but azures are definitely less common than cyans overall. they have a much more specific microenvironment

glad you found some, it's a truly beautiful sight to see a massive fruiting of them :laugh:

thanks psilygirl........i'm pretty sure what i found are cyans....they were not too big, and i only found a handful of them. i didn't get a pic. The caps were between the size of a quarter and the size of a half-dollar with an umbo, the central are of the cap was a light honey-brown, the outer rim was caramel brown. They were slightly sticky when moist. The gills were greyish. They stems white and bluish/greenish/grayish with bruising. The spore print was smokey grey with a purplish cast.

The only time I have ever seen azures, they were dry. They were really small. The caps were about the size of a dime and the stem was VERY little and brittle.

I would like to bring to your atention that the photograph of Psilocybe cyanescens in David Arora's Mushrooms demystified is actually a photograpf by Paul Stamets of Psilocybe cyanofirbilosa. Not Psilocybe cyanescens.

This printing error, known to both Arora and Stamets has neve beed corrected sinc ethe first edition ofhtat book appeared in print.
