May have found some mushrooms containing psylocybin
    #4563897 - 08/21/05 08:41 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I found some mushrooms in my back yard, maybe Psilocybe baeocystis. I searched the internet and all of the information looks relativly similiar to this speicies. But I am not 100% sure, I was wondering if anybody knows if I could check to see if they contain psylocybin.

The information i have gathered consists of: the season of them growing in August through December, they grow in lawns, bark mulch, and pastures, the cap is olive to tan, gills are dark to gray, and stem is white and hollow. They look like the mushrooms in some of the pictures...any help would be apprieciated.

It is almost impossible to identify a mushroom just by looking at it, like a flower, where you can look at the leaves and know what species it is.
Mushrooms of the same species growing close together can look very different macroscopically.
The place to start would be a spore print (very important) this will put you in a genus, you can work from there.
If you want more help, there is a subforum for ID, HINT: read the rules. It will tell you how to list the information necessary for proper ID.
It is not advisable to eat any mushroom you have not positively ID'd.

Psilocybe baeocystis are not found in Illinois at any point of the year. It is a mushroom of the Pacific Northwest,

Please read the sticky at the top of the forum for information on how to properly identify your mushroom.
