Do you know about Costa Rican shrooms?
    #685192 - 06/18/02 06:54 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I am living in a virtual paradise of mushrooms. Every day I see new ones, tiny purple ones with stalks the thickness of a hair, virtual gardens of tiny white ones like flowers, translucent orange ones, it is magical.
Even better, I am living on a farm. Unfortunately, no cattle, but lots of horses. And there are lots of mushrooms of one particular type that grow out of the horse shit.
As well as I can, I will describe it according to the following guide.

Does it have gills, pores, spines?
No pores or spines, but has gills.
- Spore print color?
- Habitat (dung, soil, wood, what kind of trees and plants are in proximity)
Grows directly out of horse shit. A mixed forest is nearby but these grow out of shit on bare earth.
- Gills color?
whitish brown
- Attachment of gills to stem (adnexed, free, decurrent) ?
Don't know
- Stem color?
- Bluing reaction?
None that I could see after twenty minutes
- Ring on stem?
- Volva at stem base?
Don't think so if a volva is a bulge at the bottom. The shape of the head is classic conical and the stem is straight.
the mushroom grows about 3-4 inches high and the cap is 1 to 1.5 inches wide.

Thanks for any advice on Costa Rican mushrooms.

What you describe sounds like some kind of copelandia mushroom. The fact that you say it doesnt blue is what throws me off. Get a few mushrooms and bruise them and let them sit for 2 hours and see if bruised blue. I suggest you get a cow, or go looking in cowfields. I have heard or both copes and cubensis in Costa Rica.

Drugs are good, and you do em when you know you not should.
