Shroom ID HELP
    #516049 - 01/10/02 04:32 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I went for a walk in the woods today to find some shrooms, seeing as we've had a very mild winter so far here in the Puget Sound area, and it rained fairly well over the last two days. I gathered about a half pound of varying species and have not been able to identify any of them. This was my first attempt at a mushroom hunt so please dont scrutinize me too badly if these are obviouse finds. I would just like to find out what they are. I would post pics, but I dont have a scanner or any way of doing so. I also could find no pics online that resembled my finds. So Ill try to do my best at describing them.

The first species I found seems to resemble a Psylocybe the most, with the long, thin, brittle stem and conic caps. They are varying between very light silvery, gray, almost white, to dark gray in a few of them. The gills are white and have a white sporeprint. None of them showed blueing when damaged. These were found very aboundantly thoughout the woods growing in decaying matter: pine needles, wood chips, pine cones, just about everywhere on the forest floor.

The other one that I am interested in seemed to me very unusual. It has a light yellowish brown stem and a yellowish brown cap being lightest at the edges and darkening towards the center. The gills are a bright yellowy green being the darkest shade of green at the center and turning yellow at the edges. These gave a light violet spore print. I found these growing out of green moss in grass below pine trees in an open area . These also did not show any blueing, but they did darken to a darker shade of brown after being picked.


that made sence... right?

The first ones are probably mycenas...and not active, the second ones...not sure but also not active, keep searching and do your research, you should be able to find magic in your area.

And that is all the news that's fit to print
