blue freedom ringers (many pics)
    #420138 - 10/09/01 10:45 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Some of you may remember my earlier post with 100's of blue ringers (psilocybe stuntzii). These are much better quality pics. Plus there is an unknown species that needs identification.

These are growing at my friends office building in puget sound area. They just keep growing and growing and growing. My friend was just out picking them last night, in the rain, in the dark, so damn many his arm got tired.

These are pictures of the second and third flush crops. There have been five flushes so far, more on the way. Going on five ozs dry. (Thats right dry). And the lawn mower has gone to a fall schedule, not coming every week!

These have been bioassayed and the estimate is right around 1/2 of the strength of a typical cubensis. Maybe a bit more. Not weak, nice and manageable.

Regarding the unknown pic, please help me with an id. Growing in the same sod grass habitat. You can see the slight orange tint to the cap and stem, and the consistently regular margin and umbonate cap. It gives a purple brown spore print. Perhaps some kind of stropharia?

Okay on to the pics:

Beauty Cluster:


Young and old in the sun


Hygrophanous:


LET FREEDOM RING!


Note the blue rings:


Cuties:


Flush 2


More flush 2


Flush 3


More flush 3


And now the unknown. PLEASE ID!

Mwahahahahaha!!!!!!!! They're mine, all mine!!

Er, uh, I mean they're my friend's....

What was the habitat of the unknown? It looks somewhat like a Psilocybe to me. Possibly Psilocybe liniformans or P. inquilina. I'd have to put one under the microscope to do any better.

I have to give you a definite thumbs up on this pick, crispy1 !
Also, you did a nice job on the photography and setup for the pics. Some nice mushrooms there, man!
Like woodsman sorta suggested, I believe the unknown Psilocybe might very well be Ps. inquilina. It's a very nice looking mushroom. Too bad that Ps. inquilina is inactive.
The unknown also looks similar to Ps. azurescens in stature. I'm not suggesting that it is, though, especially due to the coloring! I'm only referring to that tough-ass symmetrical cap.
Ps. liniformans is also a possible candidate here. I've never run into those three species, though. I'm just thumbing through Paul's book here.
Anways, nice ringers and pick some more for us, man!
Stay cool!-Levi7.

    #421132 - 10/10/01 07:54 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

So regarding the unknown:
(Descriptions from Stamets)

I did not check for the separable pellicle, which p. inquilina and p. liniformans have. There may be a few more of these around, I will check for pellicle, but I bet it does not have one. It appears that would be conclusive to eliminate these two as IDs.

I did not notice any striate margins. These were growing in the same sod grass habitat as the ringers. There was no noticeable bluing. Also no noticeable hygrophanous-ness, though I did not watch the whole drying process.

Cap and stem ended up definitely orange upon drying. The stem does not have any silky whiteness.

So I am unconvinced of a psilocybe ID, oh well. Just curious what it could be. The purple brown spore print really threw me, or I probably would not care too much.

Several Hypholoma species resemble those unknown orange ones--H. dispersum & udum come to mind. These have purple-brown spores, & orangish stem as well as cap.

That's just cracker jack woodsman I feel that makes sense. None of my books has a picture of those 2 species but I noticed some pictures of similiar hyphaloma species had the orange color. Purple brown spore prints too. I even have one book that calls a couple hyphaloma species "psilocybe". Naming inconsistences in this complex, right. Eh, mycology...

Speaking of which, the puget sound mycological society wild mushroom exhibition is this weekend. Same place as last year, sandpoint. Bought a shitake block from stamets last year, maybe try a reishi block this year!

Hmmmm, yes. Hypholoma is a very good possibility. A picture in situ would help.
