Went mushroom hunting today and found a gilled mushroom that bruised extremely blue/green.

was found near a pile of logs and shrubs but was growing directly from the soil near a well trodden footpath.

Cap - 8cm, slighty wavey margin, bruised deep blue/green towards centre. slightly slimey brown skin layer on cap is easily removable revealing pure white underneath.

Gills - chocolate brown and attached.

Stem - 8cm long, hollow. 1.5cm wide. white - bruising deep blue/green.

Smell - like the store mushroom.

also did a taste test - no real taste, texture like moist tuna.


Couldn't spore print cos the cap was broken as separated from stem.

Found in the South East of UK, thx in advance for any help.

Sounds very promising. Matches the description of Psilocybe cyanescens or similar species pretty well, except for the soil habitat rather than woodchips/mulch. You can still do a sporeprint, you have to separate it from the stem anyway. Too bad you don't have a picture.

Cyanescens caps 8cm in diameter?!! Damn that would be a find :wink:

You know, Im almost betting that this is Lactarius deliciosus.

the stem on the above picture looks a lot fatter than the one i picked.

the stem of my mushroom is whitter and "corrigated".

Are there any poisoness blue bruising gilled mushrooms that grow in the UK?

Yikes, didn't even see that. That would be pretty big.

OK well i left it over night on newspaper to dry and found a chocolate brown spore print when i woke up.

I'm sure that it's not the mushroom in the above picture - no milk was secreted when the cap was cut.

Just a brown? Dark / Light / Rusty / Red ? :smile:

Im still wondering how its bruising blue, and having that huge cap.

Does it have gills or pores underneath the cap?

spores are coloured like Quadburrys dairy milk chocolate.

Gills underneath the cap.

question to anyone who has done a taste test on Psilocybe Cyanescens - what is the taste of it?

I'd probably start with Phylloporus rhodoxanthus, the Gilled Bolete.

Happy mushrooming!
