a few Questions to familize myself more into this Area :-)
    #4685534 - 09/20/05 11:06 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

iam very new to this, so let me ask a few things and if possible give me some answers so i can stop bothering you :-P

active/non active : i guess that means they are hallucinogenic or not?
bruises.. = you mean if i scratch em thats bruising.. to find out if they become "blue" (sign of active in most cases) ?

What you mean by pan foe, pan subs ?
Seems that means something between "active" and "non active" or perhaps male/female? (still no clue)

finding active ones in my near vicinity.. should not ask this. but i searched the FAQ here and came to this

i live in *Germany* (nrw,Duisburg, somewhat "south") ... Means that i "only" can find:
- Psilocybe semilanceata (Liberty Cap? sounds easy to ID :smile: )
- Panaeolus subbalteatus (on Horse dung)
- Copelandia cyanescens  (on Cow Dung)
- Panaeolus subbalteatus (on Cow Dung)
- Psilocybe cubensis    (on Cow Dung) i read that cubensis is a well liked one...
- Psilocybe azurescens    On Mulch, Death wood&debris
- Psilocybe cyanescens    ^got an area where some of the landscape is filled with shredded wood flakes and cut down wood, does that give me a chance to find those?
Cant find a translation for "mulch", what is that? :-)

- Psilocybe semilanceata    on Grass areas, so i guess parks and such
- Panaeolus subbalteatus    things (where not that many ppl are :wink: )

thats "all" i could find in Germany ? i assume that dung fungi one i should find easier if i search cow areas and horse areas? :smile:
that should be all for now :smile:

if i know which one are "highest chance to find on my noobish journeys" then i search for the pictures of these and print em (with deadly look alikes) to be better prepared so i have it easier to identify :smile:

You're doing good by trying to familiarize yourself. We all asked these same questions at one time or another, otherwise we would not know.
Ok, Pan sub and Pan foe are two different closely related mushrooms, Panaeolus subbalteatus and Pan. foenescii the subb being active and the foen being non-active (psychoactive) These are hard to differentiate, but there is many good threads here if you do a search. Gumby wrote a really good page on differentiating, I'll post if I can find the actual url.
Do cubes and copes grow in your area? I don't think so, but I could be wrong.
On the other hand P. cyanscens and stuntzii may, there are deadly look alikes for these, namely Galerina autumnalis
Bruising means it will turn a different color when squeezed or even handled. Some mushrooms take more time to bruise than others.
Blue bruising is an indicator of the presence of psilocybin, the psychoactive
compound. Some psilocybian mushrooms do not bruise blue, as in Pan. subb. , some non-active mushrooms bruise blue, as in Bolete (which could be poisonous).
To familiarize yourself with your surroundings, it is best to first get a field guide (not absolutely necessary b/c you have other resources, but it helps greatly) go out and find some specimens, learn to print and begin id'ing those for yourself. It doesn't matter if you are right or wrong (just don't eat anything without positive id) you will get a feel for what you are looking for and where to find them.
That should give you plenty to do for a while.
O, yeah, do read the FAQ (link located at the top of the page), it will answer a ton of your questions.


GL and Happy Hunting :sun:

As far as I can judge from my net research, you could find Psilocybe Semilanceata and Psilocybe Cyanescens surely in your climatic zone. Some people around told me that P.Semilanceata from warm areas is weaker than one from colder areas. As an example from my country, 20 shrooms picked in my area (St Petersburg) equal to 40 ones picked 500 km southward (Tver, Moscow). It means you should probably have still weaker Semilanceatas. So I would search for Cyanescens or somewhat else if I live in your location.. Just theoretical reasoning, don't mind and try to ask proper people around.


'Mulch' is just humous with some hay and straw.

"A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly fifteen hundred pounds of marijuana within about 15 minutes to induce a lethal response... In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many of the foods we commonly consume. For example, eating ten raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death."

Well it sounds like a good idea to me but still always "bother" us with you're finds because we don't want anyone to die from a poisonous one!
