I asked the person who had be nice enough to help me find some Blue Meanies, and I asked her what environment they had found them in. She says bark. I thought Cope Cyans only grew on dung, or do they grow on bark too? I'm in New Zealand by the way. Any thoughts?
Copelandia cyanescens (blue meanies) grow on manure.
Liberty caps grow in manured fields in New Zealand but not from manure but from the roots of wild grasses in cattle fields.
Psilocybe aucklandi, P. eucalypta, P. tasmaniana, P. Australiana, and P. subaeruginosa all grow from decayed wood in man made environments. They macroscopically resemble the US and European species Psilocybe cyanesens.
Thanks for the reply. I checked with the photos of Blue Meanies in erowid.org again, and these definetly aren't cyans. However they are active. My guess is they're not aucklandii or subaeruginosa, and I haven't seen any pics of P. eucalypta, P. tasmaniana, P. Australiana around on the internet. Next time I have a fresh one available, I will try and get a good photo of it.
