Lib caps? (scan)
    #412177 - 10/03/01 08:24 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)



I am pretty certain these are lib caps. They have the nipple, the colour, the gills have the right colour and shape (I think). I'm waiting for some spore prints to drop, but while I wait can anyone confirm my ID from this scan?

They were found in a park in south east england, in small groups of 1-10. The field is lush and damp.

The problem I have with this ID is that the shrooms are very weak. It takes more than 70 to really feel anything off the ones I picked two weeks ago, and I thought perhaps this is a lookalike, less potent species, but I doubt that as I would have seen references to lookalikes that are closer to these shrooms. I know they're not haymakers...

Thanks.

NotaMongoose, those are not Liberty caps, but are probably Mycenas! Actually, the only thing that makes these things similar to Liberty caps is the size.
Ps. semilanceata, as well as all other Psilocybes, has greyish to purple-brown gills. Its stem is whitish, whereas your mushroom is straw yellow. Also, the cap will be very moist, while yours isn't that moist. If you take your fingers and seperate the cap vertically, you should be able to peel off a thin, translucent pellicle(or skin). This mushroom you've picked will not have that pellicle. With Ps. semilanceata, you'll notice that the striate margin(vertical lines) will not be quite as noticeable, as the lines seem to be deeper into the cap and not so close to the surface. Also, the stem should be much tougher and will not break when bent. More meatier, you know!
Good luck, bro and Stay cool!-Levi7.

Thanks for your reply.

A comprehensive picking guide on the web would have helped this ID... so I hope the shroomery one has that when and if it is completed!

Any links to pics or info on Mycenas?
