Mushrooms in Bulgaria
    #4044168 - 04/12/05 05:08 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hi all.
Thank you a lot for all your replys - Zee werp, Arbalest, BiOTeC, Enoone, MjShroomer.
The point is that there is for sure a lot Psylocybe Semilanceata but I have found other spices of psylocybe ( a very potetent ones ).They grow in a different location than the semilanceatas.The problem with the other ones is that they seem to be very toxic ( problems with strong pains in the guts and nervs - legs , teeth etc. ).
They look like P. semilanceata but they are about as twice taller.
It;s a pity that I don't have pictures of them.
That's why I posted message asking about what spicies grow in Bulgaria so I can more easy indentify them.
Thanks a lot!

There will be a backpack revolution

Liberty caps grow 4-6 inches in height. A mushroom twice as tall as a liberty cap does not make sense. That would be a tall shroom of 8 to 16 inches high.


Without a photo it is virtually impossible to tell and again that would be too tall for a shroom of thePsilocybe genera.

MJ, what do you mean libertys are 4-6 inches in height???!!! Perhaps you should take a look at some actual shrooms rather than the 'official stats', cause seriously, 6 inch libertys are rare as fuck most of the ones I find are 2-3 inches with 4 inches being large. It all depends on the length of grass their growing in, and how exposed the location is. If its pretty sheltered with long grass, then they can get to be really massive but in your typical sheep paddoc they're usually a lot smaller.

peko, without a pic its really hard to say, but it sounds like those MIGHT be psilocybe azuresecns...they do have a kind of liberty cap look to them and they are bigger. Not only that but it is common for reports from them to be unpleasant to the guts or to cause muscle cramps. Infact that seems to happen with a lot of wood lovers. You'd probably be better off to stick to libertys and cubensis if you can.

P. azurescens do not grow in Bulgaria. Liberty caps do, and yes they can 6 inches in height.

However, Psilocybe strictipes (originally known as P. callosa) and resembles liberty caps are they're common in Europe and eastern Euroope and a grow fields and lawns alike and can be found in and amongst liberty caps. And are common in lawns in the PNW, especially in fields and golf courses in Oregon and much of the PNW's I-5 corridor. See Stamets (PMOTW): Page 144-115.

Take a look at some of the Panaeolus family, they might point you in the right direction, they oftern cause a bit of a stomach upset.

If you know liberty caps, and have ruled them out, pans might hold the awnser.
