Identifying 'Golden Tops'
    #3736724 - 02/05/05 08:22 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hi All

I live in Tasmania and have ingested what we call 'Golden Tops' on a few occations (these are bell shaped and have a blue color around the stem when bruised or picked). From the pictures I can find on this site, they are similar to Psilocybe cyanofibrillosa but are a lot lighter in colour. Does anyone know what the exact species is? I have seen reference to a Psilocybe Tasmaniana but there are no pictures for this.
Thanx
Steve

Id say cubensis or *maybe* pan cyan. But cubes are the mushroom most described as gold tops. Definatly not cyanofibrillosa. Iv got like a dry half oz. right now :tongue:

edit: the mushys in my avatar are ps. Cyanofibrillosa

Sounds like you have found some Blue Meanies not Goldtops.

Here are some Goldtops

Here are some Blue Meanies

Here is a pile of Blue Meanies
I have alot of data on these mushrooms from many collections. If you would like to know some more send me a PM.

In Australia, as well as Florida, Louisianna and Texas, Gold tops and golden tops refer to Psilocybe cubensis.

Some Gold Top Cubes:


In Australia, Blue Neanies refer to Copelandia species.

In Hawaii, Copelandia cambodgeniensis are often called Gold Tops.

Here is a picture of Gold Top Copes from Hawaii:


In your iamges of the copes there a appears to be no gold color. Or copper color.

"they are similar to Psilocybe cyanofibrillosa but are a lot lighter in colour." sounds like cyanescens...

There are no P. cyanofibrillosa in Tasmania or Australia and there are no Psilocybe cyanescens in Austrlia or Tasmania.

P. subaerugfinosa macroscopically resemble Psilocybe cyanescens but that is a s far as it goes.

Wavy caps are a common characteristic in the genus Psilocyeb. Even Cubensis can have wavy caps

See image below.
These are South Aftrican Transkei cubensis grown in vitro.
And I even have photos of Mexican cubes with wavy caps.



And Shroomie of Doomie, P. cyanofibrillosa are not macroscopically similar to P. cyanescens and do not get wavy caps and the color of the caps of p. cyanofibrillosa do not resemble the caps of P. cyanescens.

when i lived down there, near melbourne we used to pick pounds of golden tops, just look for the "golden top" and pinch them and if they turn blue within seconds, you got your self some mushies!

It was definately the blue meanies. Although they are slightly darker than that pic. Man, where I have collected them from I have picked them as big as 45rpm record - no sh*t. Only problem is by then they are old, dry and full of worms.

Thanks for the feedback.

There are no blue meanies with caps the size of a 45 RPM. That would be 7" inches in diameter.

I see even urban legends are down under as well as in the rest of the world.

No Copelandia mushrooms have ever been found with a cap "7" inches in diameter.

not always. some unexperienced hunters may take other blue-bruising mushrooms to follow that rule. i've seen a bolete that would follow that description, and it definately wasn't fit for consumption.

Yss but Boletus species have a porous bottom under the cap and no gills and Psilocybe and Copelandia mushrooms have gills. A very big difference used in ideintifying what shrooms you have.

Only a complete idiot would misstake a Boletus for a cubensis. Even their texture is different and there are no rings on the boletus as on the cubensis.

And cubensis grows from manure and boletus does not.

notice i said -unexperienced- hunters.

the only things mentioned in his description were the color of the cap and the blue bruising...

so put that together and my point is made.

Yes they are in Florida but they are not growing out of manure.

lol.. there alot of idiots in florida looking for shrooms that don't know what pores or gills mean.. color of bruising alone is not a rule to follow...the areas that the boletes i see growing are sometimes leaf covered, and so are the cow patties.  :smirk:

Hi BM,
Have you been hunting lately?



Won't be long until these start popping up again.
