Not getting posioned?
    #677166 - 06/13/02 07:23 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

ok im new to mushroom hunting and have been looking at many guides online and i was reading about posionous and physchoactive mushrooms in my area ( im in florida) and I was reading a comparison between poisonous and physchoactive shrooms and about the posionous ones it said that they would grow in pastures around cow manure but not directly from it... so does this mean if i pick directly from cow dung i wont have to worry about being posioned? and if so whats the chance they will be posionous? and one more question the guide said about a lot of posinous shrooms that they are toxic but not deadly... but that some poisonous ones are deadly... so whats the likelyhood of me picking a deadly mushroom?
any help is appreciated thanks

I wouldn't advise you to rely only on one factor (grows from dung) to determine mushrooms.
There are several thousand species of mushrooms and even if I have tons of books and study them for a couple of years I find a species that I've never seen all the time. The books that describe about 500 species usually describe only the most common species.
If I picked mushrooms randomly then the likelihood of picking a deadly mushroom would be about 10% - Where I hunt the amanita phalloides is very common and psilocybin mushrooms are very rare.

No shit (rimshot)... the ones that stain blue are always the answer, but always make sure you have a posotive id before hand (if that means posting a pic then do so). But you really shouldnt just rely on one factor like the man above me said... there are many different things you must look at... as many have said before me, have you read a FAQ? have you done a search through the forums? you might find the info your looking for that way. chances are.. wait, its a chance, you never really know do you? mua mua

Here in the state of florida we have at least 10 mushroom specie of which are deadly poisonous, and many others that are poisonous to the degree of causeing major discomfort to the stomach and possibly even permanant damage to the liver - therefore the poisonee could at worse be attached to a dialysis machine for serveral hours a day for the rest of their natural life. So, Yes, there are Plenty of chances for people to pick the wrong mushrooms.

-Every trip to the cow pasture field is another chance to possibly bump into both poisonous and psychoactive mushrooms.. an example being in the summertimes, during peak picking season, the deadly white Amanita mushrooms known as "death caps" come out in big numbers..and grow dangerously close to the psychoactives Copelandia cyanescens and Psilocybe Cubensis.

A main concern amoungst florida shroomers (i would say) is to identify (possibly) the most abundant mushroom cap around, Morgans Green Gilled Lepiota's. Of which are the most commonly ingested poisonous mushroom in the world! Floridians, sometimes well known for being "ready to jump the gun", have on many occassions eaten this mushroom in confusion with the magical cow pie mushroom Psilocybe Cubensis...

Bee careful out there,
