You're never going to find a blewitt in July on dung.
They are a winter mushroom, for the most part, and are mycorrhizal. They grow in the forest.

The primary lookalikes for blewits are Cortinarius species, which will produce rusty brown spore prints. Although I am unaware of any poisonings from those similar Cortinarius species they should not be eaten.

Happy mushrooming!

They aren't mycorrhizal, you can grow them on leaf litter and grass clippings in your garden.

They can be mycorrhizal. If you find a patch under a tree it is common to find them fruiting there year after year. Many mushrooms can be both mycorrhizal and/or saprobic.

http://bcmushrooms.forrex.org/ntfp/pages/clitocnuda/clitocnuda_syn.html
This mushroom fruits on the ground from August to January depending on the year and is usually more abundant in cooler weather. It can be either saprophytic or mycorrhizal. This mushroom has previously been thought have a saprophytic habit, but is now known to form ectomycorrhizae with trees and is common in many different habitats. Blewits are found in troops or scattered in coniferous and deciduous forests as well as in grasses, meadows, gardens, sawdust, and compost piles. This mushroom probably exists throughout the B.C., but has commonly been collected in the south coast, south interior and Vancouver Island.

Lepista nuda or Clitocybe nuda (whatever you want to call it  :crazy:) grows in leaf litter under every tree in the woods here in the UK, they're common as muck!

A local mycologist friend of mine cloned some from our local woods and now has a nice patch every year in his garden.

Saprophytic or mycorrhizal? Who cares, I'm not keen on them anyway!  :grin:

they can be found in a wide range of habitat, as long as there is ample decaying plant matter. i find them in wood-chip mulch, conifer needle litter, leaf-mould, garden compost, lawn clippings, etc. they readily exploit a vast array of lignin rich substrates.

magicbastard: have you been trying to print them on white paper5?

try printing them on something dark.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
