mushrooms growing in cali
    #3539163 - 12/24/04 02:06 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

it hasnt rained here in some time, but the very cold nihgts, and very warm days have created a ton of moisture everywhere. on the way to work i walked passed a grassy patch and inthe center of this lawn there were a few shrooms growing.
what are they???
description:
a: southern cali(further south then l.a.)

b: gills. not too sure what attached is, but they were dark purple and seemed to go up into the cone on the inside. reminds me of a ruffled shirt, the way the gills are odd sizes.

c: meas. of cap and stem. i didnt have a ruler on hand, but i would say..maybe 2-3 inches tall all together. the stem looked like it extended into the very top of the cap, like an umbrella. the cap was about an inch in hight, and a bit larger then a quarters withdt around. the cap obviously went into a cone, getting smaller at the top, with a nipple like thing, or belly button.

d: brown, medium width... sorry???

e: cap: light brown to rust brown, with white dots. reminds me of a-muscaria. (smaller and brown and coned shape). cone shaped cap. a bit bumpy, not too bumpy though, not a perfect cone.

f:sorry no print. but it was very dark purplish inside the cap, almost black with a hint of purple

G & H nothing there.. sorry.
okay long description.. hope it helps.. so should these pics if i can get them to go.

Sorry but those are a species of Coprinus (an inky cap mushroom found in lawns and mulch and rotted hay.

mk

That one is not edilble nor psychoactive. Their are no species of Coprinus which are psychoactive.

One species int he genus that makes a person sick is Coprinus atramentarius. It contains disulferam like compounds similar to antibuse. If you eat that particular shroom (C. atramentarius), and drink alcohol, you will vomit your gut for up to seven days later after taking a drink. Yup one week after eating the shroom, and having a dink, leasds to nausea and vomiting. A potent anti drinking shroom.

mj

I am not sure of which species you have in the image.

And they7 really do not look anything like an Amanita shroom.

have a shroomy seasons gretings from me to all of you

Those are nice looking mushrooms. Good job! Don't eat them though.

those grow in my backyard, and I'm in Orange County.

good luck finding psilocybes, you might as well just invest in growing your own (even then you'd need someone out of state to ship you spores...)

ohh i meant the way the white dots look like little white chunks reminds me of a smaller scale a-muscaria.. just the white dots themselves. they look the same to me is all.. i wouldnt think i would find any edible mushies in southern cali, or pschoactiv ones rather. but i do like taking pictures of random shrooms when i find em.

The white dots *should* remind you of Amanitas. In both cases they are remnants of a universal veil.

Happy mushrooming!
