Need identification help
    #360795 - 07/25/01 05:48 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Please help!
I have picked at least a dozen times, never made a mistake, but here I am doubting myself on two counts.
1) After some major rains here, I saw some mushrooms growing not IN a cow pasture, but just outside the fence by my cycling route. Since it was a bit too much in plain view to jump the fence, I stopped and checked out those by the road. Didn't look like PC, but I saw a lone one that did. I grabbed it, it was small, shaped just right, but was more yellowish and didn't stain blue where it broke, instead it was more splintery. The gills weren't dark, either. Trouble?
2) Saw what, to my eyes, was an obvious and huge example of a PC, but it was NOWHERE near any cows or cow poop, but, instead, growing right in my neighbors' yard.
Right shape, has the ring, purple gills, etc. . . but the wrong location has me worried.
Am I paranoid? Is he schixophrenic?

Hi, AbeZard. There are quite a few somewhat-look-alikes for Psilocybe cubensis. Examples are species of Lepiota, Amanita and Stropharia.
All can possibly be found in fields and lawns.
Be careful! Also, good luck! Stay cool!-Levi7.
