Copelandia Cyanescens in New Zealand?
    #5756234 - 06/16/06 05:46 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

While it is currently right in the middle of the sub season, I've been researching up on where to find Copelandia Cyanescens in NZ. From looking here it seems as though the majority of the mushrooms taken are subs, along with a few Aucklandii.

So, does anyone have much luck finding Copelandia Cyanescens at all? Or is it the wrong season? I read on erowid that they grow in Taranaki on the coast line so am keen to see if they are further north out on the Waikato coast. Anyone found them this far north?

Taranaki coast line is correct, John Allen (Mushroom John) confirmed that Pan. Cyanescens specimens were collected along that area but I am not sure exactly which months to start looking for them. They are a humidity loving mushroom so my guess is when summer is coming to an end and the autumn rains arrive.

At the moment I would expect it is too cold/too dry to find them although someone with more knowledge out there could prove me wrong. :mushroom2:

There are Pans in Nelson aswell (a hippie girl I talked to described them accurately and had tripped on them) - the term bluemeanie is supposed to be just for them.

I think people just arent looking for them - as noone is reporting them. A negative catch 22 I suppose.
There must be loads of Liberty Caps around also - but noone is posting finds of them either.

Do these look like what you would call - "Blue meanies" or "Copelandia cyanescens" - We found them in the Southern North island of New Zealand and its the end of summer (humid warm) and the first rains were over the last two weeks.

We were told they were probably blue meanies but I don't fully trust the source - Sorry no spore print etc but heres the best details I can give.



Habitat: Found growing on & in amongst dead wood etc. in the forest.
Gills: Black (inside the head)
Stem: white, sturdy.
Cap: White
Spore print: unknown
Bruising: Blue all over the cap within about 10 seconds of being picked. Stem appeared to stay mostly white.
Location: Southern, North island, New Zealand

Thanks for your help.

they look like those pouch fucker actives discovered a couple of years back by somebody...fantastic find if they are but get somebody like inski to ID them before you even think about eating them

most certainly not cyanescens though!

I'm sorry but MJ did not confirm anything. He never collected them here himself. That whole article (Magic Mushrooms of Aust & NZ) is a little heavy with erroneous information. For example he states that Ps. cyanescens is present here and was likely introduced on purpose by trippers. Whereas it is actually Ps. subaeruginosa that most likely came here with trees and other plants brought from Australia, or simple accidental spore dispersal. However it got here it is at least known that it's Ps. subaeruginosa, not Ps. cyanescens.

MJ also states that:

"It is likely that persons experienced with the Australian situation recognized C. cyanescens and P. tasmaniana growing in the New Plymouth sand dunes, particularly at [a] beach which is popular with surfers."

Hmm, suspicious suspicious. Given that the only collections of P. tasmaniana in NZ have come with the affixed label 'Identification tentative / uncertain'. But what got me even more curious was this:

"Copelandia cyanescens (`blue meanies') predominates in the New Plymouth region, an area of intensive dairy farming. The mushrooms appear in autumn, most commonly under lupine bushes in coastal paddocks."

Coastal sand dunes under lupine bushes in autumn, describes exactly the habitat of Ps. subaeruginosa in many parts of NZ. Not the habitat of C. cyanescens. Those grow from shit. A cow cannot shit under a lupine bush. It's way too crowded in coastal lupine growths for a cow to hang out.

My tentative theory is that there was a general mixup (by MJ) with the terminology "Blue meanie", which in some parts of the world refers to C. cyanescens, but here in NZ it is used to describe literally any bluing psilocybin mushroom. MJ just published this stuff with no evidence. Unless I'm missing something and there is a herbarium specimen somewhere?

I have talked to many people who are avid shroom collectors and competent at identifying them. I've met them who have been to that area to seek the C. cyanescens, with no luck.

I am not saying that C. cyanescens is not present in NZ...I'm just saying that I'm yet to see any real evidence that it is. I challenge all north island shroomers out there to come up with the goods!

Also feelers, are you sure the chick described the substrate? I've met a hippie chick from Nelson who talked of eating blue meanies. She described what sounded like C. cyanescens, until I quizzed here more and it turned out that a "domed cap" with white / grey colouring and blue bruising actually meant a pouch fungus and it was not growing from dung but from the forest floor.

Zee_werp,

Seeing that you only registered here at the shroomery in March of 2003, I believe you only looked at the Australian and New Zealand paper a few times because all erroneous statements regarding the presence of P. cyanescens in Australia and or New Zealand were removed on August 3rd, of 2003, as dated on the first page of the article at the Erowid site. That means you only may have viewed it between March and August 1st or so of 2003, a period of between five months in 2003. IT has not been in that site since.

Read the following which posted at the shroomery's shroom hunting forum were you posted you comments regarding my publication..

Quote:


Zee-werp,


First to correct you on some information you wrote above about my Magic Mushrooms of Australian and NZ paper being wrought with errors.

The Psilocybe cyanescens was identified and placed into the original paper from a paper published by Margot and Watling (1981), who analysed Psilocybe cyanescens in Australia.

Margot, P. and Roy Watling. 1981. Studies in Australian Agarics and Boletes II. Further studies in Psilocybe. Transactions of the British Mycological Society vol 76(3):485-489. June.

The first published report of the detection of psilocybin in Psilocybe eucalypta from Australia.

They published their analysis of Psilocybe cyanecens with other Australian shrooms, thus mislieading thaat their speciemwsn were from Australia. They did so without noting that the specimens of their P. cyanesens used for comparative analysis were obtained from the U of Washington in Seattle to do comparative analysis of them with Species already known to occur in Australia.

That information was found out by Guzman and me in 1992.

My original article was published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs in 1991 and then appeared in the erowid web site by me on JUNE 13, 1999, 8 years after it was first published in the journal.

The data on Psilocybe cyanescens being in Australia was then removed from all of Erowid's pages at my request when I noticed the discrepancy and wrote to Erowid in August of 2003 and then, at my request, Fire and Earth of Erowid removed all references pertaining to the presence of Psilocybe cyanescens in Australia on August 8 2003. That was exactly 3 years and 9 months ago. To mention it now is not right since it has not been noted on erowid for almost four years since. This shows how far back you do not notice or remember your shroom history.

The Copelandia information in the paper "Magic Mushrooms of Australia and New Zealand" is correct and the New Zealand section in the paper was written by Dr. Karl L. R. Jansen, at that time, of the University of Auckland, a medical Doctor who studied magic mushrooms and their use amongst college students and young adults in Auckland and elsewhere in New Zealand during the middle to later 1980s.

And in 1991, when the paper was published, Jansen had kept records of surveys and polls of kids in NZ who were referring to Copelandia species as blue meanies. Very few pickers in 1991 knew of any other shrooms out side of liberty caps (specimens from a lawn in Auckland of liberty caps are on deposit at the U of Auckland) and of Copelandias. Both of which they learned from pickers from Australia who also brought mushrooms to NZ to their friends in the early 1990s.

Very few pickers in NZ were aware in NZ of P. subaeruginosa at the time, although a few college students knew of its existence. And while I was the first to post the pictures of P. subaeruginosa from Australia, I also noted the presence of P. aucklandii and a few others, but a few other species are also in my notes of the period.

Also the paper was written as an overview and review of the known species and history of the time (1990), "Magic Mushrooms of Australia and New Zealand" and many of todays original NZ shroom pickers of the 1990s used that guide from the original journal publication for finding mushrooms in New Zealand and Australia. And from 1999 to 2003, Many also used it to find their shrooms.

btw, The paper which was somewhat a little updated for its appearance in Erowid website originally was published and appeared in "The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs" in 1991 (16-years ago this past January).

Allen, John W., Mark D. Merlin and Karl L. R. Jansen. 1991. An ethnomycological review of psychoactive agarics in Australia and New Zealand. Journal of Psychoactive Drugs vol. 23(1)39-69.

If you read the title it is just a review and at the time the only complete history of entheogenic fungi and their use in Australia and New Zealand. Species identification of over 18 varieties of entheogenic fungi from these two countries and 32 case histories of ingestion are presented as is a section on treatment for psilocybian intoxication. Many of those case histories of accidental ingestions and deliberate ones were not included in the article in the journal.

And Jansen had already written 2 articles about magic mushrooms in New Zealand before I even heard of him or met him.

Jansen, Karl L. R. 1982. Teonanácatl, the use and users of psilocybin mushrooms. Thesis. Behavioral Science Department. Dunedin, New Zealand.

And later He wrote this article before I started to Correspond with Karl. He originally contacted me in 1990 (A year before our paper was published) about adding a section to my Australian paper, where I did visit for several weeks a region from Adelaide into Queensland and up to Brisbane and Murwillumba (sp?).

Jansen, Karl L. R.
------. 1988. Magic mushrooms: A fast growing problem. Journal of General Practice vol. 5:7-10. New Zealand.

And as far as correspondence in the study of my paper, I not only visited with several of these people while visiting Australia listed in the acknowledgments but also corresponded with them over a three year period in the mail.

Jansen also wrote the definitive book on Ketamine. He is now a teacher of surgery at Oxford University in England. And as for New Zealand, Jansen knew the shrooms in his country, although the pouch fungi were not known to the pubic at the time of the paper in 1991.




And this is a photo of me on the ground preparing slides for a presntation and with black-beared psychonaut John Leonard of Massachusetts and the tall one in black is Dr. Karl L. R. Jansen and we were lecturing on Australian and New Zealand Shrooms, 1993.


I brought him first to America from New Zealand. as I have other scholars Iincluding Dr. Stijve and Dr. Gartz) to lecture here on shrooms from around the world.

Here is another image taken by anthropologist Jim Jacobs of Karl and I hunting Chanterelles in mountains 80 miles east of Salem, Oregon. I am standing on a log because karl is six foot four.

Well, I can safely reply to my own post now that those shrooms were very much active.

A very smooth trip, no clear hallucinations, but gave everything a very beautiful look after about 3 hours.
Would describe it as a miniture LSD trip.

These mushrooms are Weraroa novazelandiae, a member of the strophariaceae family.

MJ, you just did a nice job of avoiding addressing the true issues of my post, by trying to confuse things with a bunch of vaugely related, or not related at all, information. For example what does when I registered at this site have to do with anything? I have hunted shrooms longer than I've been at this site.

I mean not to disrespect you or anyone else, I have the utmost respect for your many years of doing all things shroomy.

All that I am saying is that there is no concrete evidence that I can find about the presence of C. cyanescens in NZ. If you can give it to me, thats great. I'm just inquiring and you, if you are truly a scientist, should encourage inquiry. I have been to the university today and ordered a copy of the 1991 paper from J. of Psych. Drugs. Perhaps this will clear things up entirely for me.

All I want is a record of an herbarium specimen, or a recorded collection that has been properly ID'd by someone. A photo would be asking too much I guess.

Can you blame me for being sceptical? Your article states that C. cyanescens are found in the sand dunes under lupin bushes in autumn, alongside Ps. tasmaniana (= Ps. subaeruginosa). The substrate in lupin bushes is decaying lupin ground litter (wood, bark, leaves). The temperatures in coastal New Zealand in autumn reach a MAXIMUM of 20 degrees Celsius, reaching lows of 5 degrees Celsius or less. The temperature range for successful C. cyanescens initiation is 26-29 degrees Celsius.

The substrate and temps fit for Ps. subaeruginosa (Ps. tasmanaia). Are you agreeing that you could imagine finding some C. Cyanescens along the washington coast, next to some Ps. azurescens? I suspect not. Hence my scepticsism.

Also, you say that the erroneous information has been removed from your article at Erowid and I have been a naughty boy and not kept up-to-date on my info...actually, it was just yesterday that I looked there, and it still says that Ps. cyanescens is present in New Zealand. No mention of Ps. subaeruginosa though.

I realise that K. Jensen is a prestigious researcher...he knows a lot about ketamine. But did he ever collect, or personally identify, a specimen of C. cyanescens in NZ? Take note he is a neuropharmacologist, not a botanist.

I'm not trying to attack anyone here. I would just like to see some concrete evidence that C. cyanescens is present in NZ. One question though...have you ever picked a magic shroom in New Zealand?

Hey MJ...still waiting for your response on this. I've looked into it a little more, and I have found that while Landcare Research Fungi Database for NZ lists Copelandia cyanescens as 'Present in NZ', the only citation for that is your article.

As far as I can tell, you're article was based on hearsay, and no actual confirmed collections. Landcare research trusted that your article would be scientifically sound. Is the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs not peer reviewed? Perhaps it is from a drugs standpoint but not from a botanical one.

Again...maybe I am missing something. Would love some light to be shed on the issue.

hmm it would have to be a hot wet summer for them to grow here I think...

but I have read somewhere, something about it. Years ago.. can't quite remember... ah well. Something about farmers getting angry at shroomers traipsing around in their paddocks. Which would imply they were probably not subaeruginosa, but copelandia cyanescens or even ps. semilanceata. Can't remember any details about season or anything..

Perhaps we should go on a road trip up there and find out for ourselves when the season's right?!?

Yeah I would like to sometime. One time when it's hot and wet, we should do the mish. It'd be a bit pricey on the petrol though...if we come up empty handed, we'll just have to send MJ the bill!

Hey Zee, I take it have you've seen the report of the pan cyans near New Plymoth, around the airport? I think that was Johns article. The girl from nelson gave a pretty accurate description, tall, pure white, bruise insanely blue. She gave us some goldtops, and she was adamant they were a different from them.
As for verifiable evidence, still nothing. I think we've brought this up before, and never got an answer.

I think MJ was talking about Psilocybe cyanescens, which is why his reply didn't answer your questions. There seems to have been a mix up between them and subs, which is what he is referring to I'm guessing.

SO - anyone have any evidence on Panaeolus cyanescens/Copelandia cyanescens in New Zealand? :crazy2:

I just accidentally deleted the whole text here of what I just wrote so this is not the same as what I originally wrote here

I have been in contact with, seven herbariums in New Zealand since last we talked. So far only one has answered me and they said that had no C. cyanecens in their herbarium. That was from somwehere in Canterbury.

The reason I did not respond was that I am waiting for their responses to me.

I am aware of the Landsearch Fungi Data base and I have a robot reply that the manager of the fungal collections is on vacation and soon will get back to me.

This is a ,list of herbariums in New Zealand I have written to.

and one other one.

I left out the email addies and the names of the contacts there. One letter to me already asked me not to give out their email because they do not want, 'druggies' bothering their daily works as to asking questions about what hallucnogenic species they have in their herbarium.

Kinda like a particular garden in San Francisco which has Coca leaves growing on their premises uncer a different name, or the cacti lab at the UW which has San Pedro growing under a different name because some creep came by one day and cut about 8 cuttings from one of their cacti's.

When I get the data I will post it.

No that wasn't the reason...there was two seperate issues...firstly the issue of the Copelandia... Then there is the fact that MJ's article on erowid still states that Psilocybe cyanescens is in NZ, yet it does not mention Ps. subaeruginosa being here. MJ said that it was removed from the Australia section, but it is clearly still in the NZ section. It is true that for a while people thought that the Ps. subaeruginosa here were Ps. cyanescens, but it is now known to be not the case. Not that thats a big deal - its an understandable mis identification to make. I guess that MJ is just not aware that the article on erowid has not infact been changed. But perhaps that is the root of this whole thread - a confusion of genus names???

It's only the copes that I am really interested in. If the only "evidence" for them being here was MJ's article, and MJ had no evidence for his article, then it's logical to conclude that they may not be here. If the original article was based on a collection then there would be no need for MJ to be emailing every herbarium in NZ right now.

If they were to naturalize here , what climate would suit them best ??

Taranaki gets the general vote because of he "blue meanie" legend and is supported by all the cattle herds , but wouldn't it be more likely to winter over further north e.g. Northland ?

It seems to me and i do find this interesting that The Surviving Winter Aspect would have to dominate the survival prospects of cope's in nz .. can anyone explain to me the method by which copes can winter over ? ? or do they only survive by continuing the spore/shroom growth cycle ?

I'm looking at Ordering some Cope's soon actually to study .. wanting to study the more Weather tolerant variety but from the Aussie/Hawaiian/Cambodian/Vietnam etc versions i am not sure which to select .. Any points of view on this ?

Also can the varieties cross breed ??

It does seem less and less likely that Copes are here in NZ, good on MJ for taking the time to find out though. :thumbup:

It does seem weird that Copes would be in New Plymoth, I don't really know how warm it is over there but I'd have guessed it's pretty cold. As for other places, the far north would be the obvious for them. The girl from Nelson also makes me think, Nelson does have a pretty warm climate but again no proof other than her description, (it's really bugging me!). Does Australia have Copes at all?

Yes Australia does have Copelandias and I have fotos taken there by me and by others.


The term blue meanies came from the use of copes in Australiam, and in ref to the Beatles

Yellow Submarine blue meanies/

Darwin, Northern Territory, New South Wales, Brisbane, Qld; Coffs Harbour and Sydney, New South Wales, Tasmania; This species has a cosmopolitan distribution and occurs in the tropics and neotropics of both hemispheres. This species has 11 binomials (excluding Copelandia anomalus. Common in the dung of cows, water buffalo, Gaur and sometimes horses.

The tropics and neotropics eh? I looked up neotropics and that simply means the "the tropical regions of the Americas". Here is a map showing the tropics highlighted in red. You can see that NZ is about as far from this as your home area MJ the north west coast of the US.



Also, experienced Australian shroomers such as bluemeanie have also said that they do not believe that Copes are in NZ...or many of the regions of Australia that you claim MJ, such as Tasmania. It's highly unlikely that Copes are in Tasmania, apparently. Like New Zealand, the climate is just not right. If the climate is right, then you need to change your description to "copes occur in the tropics, neotropics, and temperate regions of the world"

That would be the tropics and neotropics of both hemispheres. Florida to Texas has them and that is even not in your red zone.

So does southern China and the north of Vietnam and the northern Mediterranean Sea have Copelandia species in their countries, and a few years ago several crops in Bern, Switzerland of Copelandia bisporus appeared on a local Swiss Church lawn. I have pictures of those in Bern.

Copelandia species are also common in France, Italy and Spain and portions of northern Africa which are also not to much included in your red zone and Copelandia sp. have on a few occasions been found in the GB region on one of the islands, (Shefield and/or Hebrides)

I will only for the moment mention that Copelandia cyanescens has also been picked in Tumwater, Washington by both me and Paul Stamets on several different occasions at a local riding stable during the past thirty years.

If the Australian paper disturbs you so much then I suggest that you then take it upon yourself to write a new book on the hallucinogenic mushrooms of Australia and New Zealand. Get Permission from Anzass.

You can write to the:

Acting or Current,
Principal Research Officer,
Narcotics Section,
Central Crime Intelligence Bureau,
Commonwealth Police Force,
Camberra, A.C.T.,
Australia.

[thats a real address]
Maybe they can help you out with some data.

I just spent two hours diggin up articles with images and this is by Dr. Southcott on shroom poisoning in Australian and NZ from a 1974 printed article in booklet from a respected Australian Journal, although I have a few papers a few years before identifying Copelandia as in both Northern and Southern Australia. However, I am at a point in my life where I am tired of digging up articles for everyone around here. It takes away my time and I have other shit to take care of more important work than answering to articles 15 years or older. I really hate to seem like an ass but i am really tired after 8 years of answering many of the same questions over and over and over ewvery two or three months because no one here is doing any research except may a few people in Holland, Workman, Roak Kill, xmush, Shroomy dan, Shirley Knight, Falcon, Xmush, Anno, roger rabbit and excuse me for the many other serious names I cannot remember right now because of the time I spent to put this together.

have a shroomy day and start goggling.

Shit, you live there so then you have more resources than I do. Go to the libraries and research everything you want to know. Go to the schools go to the coklleges and universites and their herbariums. I listed six already for you, and then see if you can get a permit to study and then you can rewrite what I first wrote and correct any mistakes you feel are made in that publication. I do not have time to do it for you.

And one more thing, Erowid was informed about the Australia New Zealand corrections. I do not work for them so it is up to whenever they want to fix it or not.

There are dozens of papers and books there by others and they have been informed of errors yet have not fixed them.

The F. C. Ghouled's cube guide book for Texas to South Carolina is wrought with bad data. He lists the
Quote:

Amanita muscaria as the famed psilocybin mushroom of Mexico


and also shows two penis shaped young cubes and lists them as Panaeolus subbalteatus. That was in 1973.

That error led to a Dr. from Mississippi saying Panaeolus subbalteatus was the second most used mushroom in America.

Actually at the time of that book, The liberty cap was the most used species.



Here are three pages from Dr. Southcott;s
and the Drug Enforcement Authorities of ACT to possess and study such species.'

Here are three parts of three pages form Dr. Soputhcott;s paper in 1974. One of a photo of Copelandia cyanescens taken in 1974 by the Commonwealth Police.

I will not spend another hour in a storage bin diggin up old files anymore. Thats for sure.








mj

The reviewers who reviewed prior to submission of paper to journal. I also believe Andy Weil was one of the Journals peer reviewers for the paper before publication in 1991 and some police i worked with on my paper.

Quote:

Dr. Peter Buchanan and Dr. Peter Johnson of the Auckland D.S.I.R.; Detective Sergeant John Dearing of the Auckland Drug Squad. A special note of appreciation to Chris King of the University of Auckland for the use of his photographs of Psilocybe aucklandii, Psilocybe australiana and one unidentified species from New Zealand. The author also expresses his gratitude to Dr. Gaston Guzmán of the Instituto De Ecologia, A.C., Mexico, D.﷓F., and A. M. Young of Australia for their valuable assistance in reviewing the identification of species section; Dr. Mark D. Merlin of the University of Hawaii for his time and help in reviewing and editing this booklet for publication; Dr. Karl L. R. Jansen for editing and providing the section on New Zealand, who along with Dr. Rick Strassman of the University of New Mexico, Dr. Stanley Krippner of the Saybrook Institute and Dr. William Emboden of the California State University at Northridge reviewed the final manuscript; and a special note of gratitude to Dr. Roy Watling of the Royal Botanic Society of Edinburgh, Scotland, for his time and consideration in reviewing this manuscript prior to publication.




This is from the actual journal.

One more jopurnal note for you. This is form Persoonina journal of analysis of Copelandia cyanescens from Australia Tony Young collections, Hawaii and Thailand, from john Allen Collections) published in 1992),











And a closer look at the analysis of the Australian, Thai and Hawaiian copes.

My red zone? That's your red zone MJ. You are the one that said that they occur in the tropics and neotropics. The picture shows the tropics and neotropics. (Neotropics = the section of the tropics that is located on the American continent). Maybe you meant the tropics and the subtropics? Or maybe you just meant that they occur anywhere? France or NZ are not in the subtropics either.

Myself and some friends from local botanical scenes are considering this...only for NZ though. We wouldn't want to go publishing stuff about countries we aren't experienced in.

I have been to the libraries and universities and searched for everything I want to know. That's the whole reason why I am having this discussion with you. Because I cannot find any documented evidence of Copelandia cyanescens being in NZ, other than your article which was based on no collections that you can name.

Quote:

This may be in the works. Obviously I would not go to the effort of doing this, without checking with you, the author, first. If you could provide for me evidence of C. cyanescens being collected in NZ, being the only person who has ever published it's existence here, then I would find that satisfactory. Since you cannot, I have had chats with some friends and lecturers in the fields of mycology who feel that either a collection should be found, or that this should be corrected in the literature.

So can you clear this up please MJ...you haven't answered this directly yet. Was the publication in your article of the presence of C. cyanescens being in NZ based on an actual collection or citation of a specimen / herbarium sample, or not?

I really didn't want to have a lengthy debate over this, I am more just genuinely interested in whether or not it is present here. If it is true that it can occur in some of the locations you listed, then maybe it is possible for it to be in NZ. It's just that things seem a little sloppy. You must admit that the dots do not connect if you know what I mean, with the habitat, substrate, season, etc. for that species.

Dr. Karl L. R. Jansen provided the New Zealand Section in that paper. He works at Oxford, I am sure you can find the Oxford Faculty listed on the google. I have had no personnal communications with him in several years and I have no forwarding address. I am sure you can find that from one of his published books or papers on the google. You might have to buy one of his papers since most journal publications are only being offered online and not for printed reprints. I have to buy a lot of new ones and sometimes I post one or two but I am not going to do it for every paper I have on shrooms in my library.

Grill him about New Zealand because thats where he is from.

Contact Chris King of Auckland. He also wrote on the mushrooms of New Zealand.

Gavin Ninsky wrote Blue meanine and the She Devils about copes in New Zealand.

Find his book and contact him.

I really am not going to dig around in thousands of mailings to find two letters. They are are storage in about forty boxes of articles, letters to and from me and stored ever sice I came from Hawaii to Seattle in 1997. I have not gone trough most of them since and as I said it took me a few hours to dig up the cd and the actual printed Australian New Zealand paper by Dr. Southcott.

I do not have time for your personal project questions.

You will need to find that information on your own or with help of your friends in New Zealand.

Man is it a strange world, when I first started up learning about magic mushrooms, I did a search and the only NZ thing that would pop up was his website. I read through his page and he listed his msn address, so I added him and asked my questions about magic mushrooms directly! :crazy2:

From my discussions with him I'm pretty sure he was referring to Subaeruginosa. He stated that he used to go though the pine forest and look for mushrooms that went blue, and that tripping out in the forest was they way to do things. I think he used the term blue meanies because that what his Australian mates called them. I brought up the fact that blue meanies were supposed to be in cow fields and he didn't  know what I was talking about, so at the time I thought I had it wrong.

Given that he was in the Auckland area and that he described to me where he found his mushrooms I'm pretty sure that he wasn't referring to copes, but subs, with his book.

The coincidence of his name popping up here was pretty damn weird!  :eek:

MJ, thanks for your reply.

That is fair enough that you don't want to dig up stuff that takes you hours to find in your boxes. I just thought that the answer (re: Cope collection) might have been more clear cut.

So thanks for taking the time to dig up resources you have mentioned in this thread, it gives me some great leads to follow up on.

I'll post it if I find any interesting bits of info.

Your mushrooms are probably in the Mycenaceae family. More info needed.

Other than that, this thread is 8 years old. You should start your own thread
for identification requests.
