need an expert ID on some shrooms (with pics)
    #4148009 - 05/07/05 09:10 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)



These mushrooms were found growing solitary on some mulch under a beech or American hornbeam last fall in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The spore prints are purplish black and I didn't notice any bluing on the stem or cap. Any ideas?

If you're in the Triangle area and want to go hunting, drop me a line.

maybe some kind of non-active psilocybe?

That's a neat find. I'd love to know more detais. They really look like psilocybes to me, so that's a bit odd. Why did you wait so long to post?

my best guess, without a proper ID, is Psilocybe caerulipes, but get more info first. Tell us whether the stem stains blue, obviously the most important factor here...
If the stem stains blue (also cut the stem to look at the center, check for a hollow inside with a whitish pith), and the spore print is dark purplish brown, if these factor match, then you likely have Psilocybe caerulipes, psilocybin active.

Those are not Psilocybe caerulipes. They are most likely a Stropharia species.

P. caerulipes has a stem which is white and blues exteremely well.

And the cap slowly becomes upturned in some specimens and the color of the cap is similar to P. cyanescens in their drying stage changing color to a straw-yellow like cubes and other Psilocybes change.

This is a phot of Psilopcybe caerulipes from Cinncinati, Ohio in July.



The shrooms in the beggining of this thread are not psychoactive.

yeah, stropharia or hypholoma were my first guesses, they almost look like old sulfur tufts, Hypholoma fasciculare.

without any info i would say waterlogged cubes thats why its good to take spore prints and have more info.

No harm can come from questioning. "Best" case scenerio: You prove it right without relying on the fact that it is widely accepted. Argument strengthened. "Worst" case scenerio: You realize you might have been wrong. The new answer might or might not be what you want to hear, but it beats defending yourself with bullshit.

thanks for all the posts.
I was gearing up for the coming season and found this print and these pictures I took last Fall and had meant to follow up on but never had. Maybe they'll come back this summer and we can get a better idea or what they are.

I scraped some spores off onto an agar plate and looked at them under a dissecting scope and under the scope they look ellipsoid and brownish but the prints look black. Does this clue help anyone nail it?
