A bunch of pictures of nothing special.
    #448924 - 11/06/01 01:33 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)



I'm hoping this one is maybe something? I'm working on a spore print, and it seemed to bruise a bit blue.







I picked these today on a small mountain near Vancouver, I'm hoping sometime soon someon clues me in to where the cyans are growing, or if its too late for them or what.

Peace!

the stem on the third isnt blue, its more a dark brown, the color is actually fairly accurate for a webcam pic.

me and my friend think that the first 2 pictures may be of psilocybe stuntzii, but we collected them Nov 6th, does that seem too late for stuntzii? The spore print also came out as per mjshroomer's description here, as its "Dark purplish grayish brown".

We're goign out tomorrow morning I believe to collect some more specimens, I hope someone here can help us with this identification.

The bottom few are what I believe to be Mycenas..inactive, I got fooled by those a bunch of times in the early stages of my career..thought they were libs...I was wrong.

Sorry dude, I'm no expert, but the shrooms in the last four pics in your first post grow all over the moss in my yard. I live in Seattle. Having nothing much to loose in life I've scarfed down fistfulls of these things to no effect. You might have something with the others, but those little brown watery things are bunk.

I'm actually pretty sure that everything but maybe the first couple pics I might be on to something (stuntzii).

Live in hope though I guess. :)

I would agree that the first two pics are a Stropharai of some sort, but not active.
You are on the right track, though?..Psilocybe are in the same family as Stropharia and usually share the same habitat.
Did you get any spore prints?

Top 2 first picture series, Hypholoma capnoides

Picture 4&5 of second picture series, Hypholoma fasciculare (poison).

They don't bruise blue, do have purple brown spores and are not active. They are very common and easy to find compared to Psilocybes. They are related to Psilocybes and Stropharia. P. stuntzii has a ring on the stem.

The liberty cap look alikes are common mycenas.

None of the pictures are of what you are looking for. From the selection you have it appears you might be looking in a wooded area or forest. You need to stick to cultivated and landscaped areas for best results.
