? for Mj regarding G.P.Menser's Field Guide
    #548179 - 02/11/02 05:01 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

I have an old hallucinogenic and poisonous mushroom field guide by Gary P.Menser that came out in 1977.I realize that there are some discrepencies in the guide,but considering the minimal amount of info on magic mushrooms in the 70's,it's still an informative book.
Here is some information contained in the book.Are these true or false statements;
" Naematoloma species have a cap that is not hygrophanous" and "Psathyrella,Naematoloma and Agaricus species do not have a removable pellicle".
If these are true,it would definitely help in narrowing down what genera a purple-brown spored mushroom belonged too.

As for Naematoloma, I have pictures of tone species with a hygrophanous cap. So I guess they do change color in dryin, as does Psathyrella. I have not noticed a change in Agaricus except in the gill. THe young oens of some are pink and turn to Chocolate brown with age.

Gary klived in Florence Oregon and was a real estate agent. Last year or so I heard he had passed away. In the early 1990s, Homestead book company bought rights for a few thousand books from Gary and renamed it after Homestead's original book as Magikal Mushroom Handbook. I Now understand it is out again under its original name.
