help id on possible cubes
    #4294858 - 06/14/05 01:58 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)



Location: Ga/Tn border in cow pasture , i think straight from old cow dung in field that was like dirt.
Gills: attached to stem dark blakish to chocolate color some white on edges.. not tightly packed together
Dimensions: Don't have exact measurements.. but biggest one was about the size of a cd and smaller of two that were together about the size of a baseball. stem about 3 to 4 inches on both
Stem: whitish to off white with blue-green on bottoms .. thick not squishy.. hollow by the looks of it.. don't know if cuz its old or the way it is
Cap: yellow/brown/gold in middle lighter towards outside (besides the blackness on it which i think is from decay or something but was also present on leaves around shrooms)pretty much flat except it bumps up in the middle but not much... did notice gills hang lower than cap edge
Spore print: On the way within 3 hours.. wanted to get the main post in place since its my first one like this.






Thats the bigger one.




This is the smaller of the two. same characteristics as other

I found these together. they have black all over the top and everything but i'm guessing thats from them being old because i've read other posts about ppl finding cubes with black on them.. the goldish color is very pronounced when looking at them not in a picture.. u can tell its just that color in the middle.. gills hang lower than cap.. and the edges of gills are a whitish color compared to rest of gills which seem a chocolate color besides the black which i don't know is natural or from decay. Stem was so stained up that i couldn't tell if any bruising occured from my fingers but at the bottom of them they appeared blue-green slimy like.

Those are the strangest looking cubes i have ever seen, if they even are cubes. I dont see a ring. The bluing says psilocin, but i have no idea...
SPECIES CHECK!!!
anyone else care to take a guess?

I was thinking either wet or old, probably both, but still there is no sign of a veil at all.

Yeah, at first, I thought they were. Upon closer inspection, I think not.
Need more info.
I'm thinkin it's a spored up meadow mushroom, but that sure looks like blue/green at the base :confused:
Need a print.

again, SPECIES CHECK!!!
Does anyone know what these are? Im clueless. Which active species looks like a cube but doesnt have a veil? This wouldnt be the first time that a new Psilocybin active mushroom was discovered around Georgia.
DO NOT eat your specimens! Dry them and take VERY good care of them!

Looks like overly mature cubes the Veil tends to fall off in older age , plus its been raining like made here in georgia so that could also be the cause

While i was in the grass, i picked them..

The black stuff that was around on leaves would be the spores , not the same as them being quit edark

aight my spore print looks to be purple black u guys.. i'm kinda excited even with the black and no remnants of a veil.. these look to be very mature/old mushrooms .. maybe the veil fell off and the black is decay?.. its a very dark purple black print but def purple black.. and btw can't really smell anything cept on the stem and it smells i swear kinda like chicken lol

cube ... has to be , But what intrigues me is this purple BLACK spore print , cubes should have a well defined purple spore print

maybe its the light i'm looking at the sporeprint in .. i mean its mainly purple but at the same time.. that same blackness thats on the top is mixed in.. maybe some decay from the gills is mixing with the spores??

def. cubensis; just old/covered in spores. its often hard to find remenants of a veil on older fruits.

sounds possible , it is as a matter of fact quite old indeed now that i look at pics again , so its possible the gills could be releasing some sort of pigment , or its also possible that maybee there is black mold on the mushrooms , and if thats the case ... DONT EAT , see and you can rub the black stuff of the top of the cap off with a paper towel , if its black mold it should come off VERY easy with the towel and dirty the papertowel up a bit

aight i rubbed it with dry papertowel and i had to scrub to get any to come off and it was just a little bit.. which had a purple tint to it.. i then wet the towel rubbed again and was able to rub the dark off in two spots which left a yellow looking surface behind and all the dark on the towel

Thats spores, not mold. The shroom is obviously very old. But the spores dont usually cover the cap in the manner shown.

I have to honest with you, those are some terrible pics.
The first one there makes it appear as if the cap is iridescent in places...
The over brownness of the cap/gills denotes any type of dung loving psilocybe, but the bluing...
