First time hunting..here's what I found. Help!
    #725850 - 07/06/02 05:27 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I found these in a cow field right next door. I'm in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area if that helps...I don't have a digi cam so no pics, sorry...

The first one is orange, found growing in/around cow dung. They are very small, I'd say 1-1.5 CM diameter on the cap. The gills are the same, just a lighter orange. I do not know if they stain blue yet, I picked em less than thirty minutes ago.

The second one I found growing in and around cow dung too. It looks almost *just* like a liberty cap and is about the same size as the above shrooms. But I'm pretty sure liberty caps don't grow around here. Noticed some blueing in the cap, but that could just be wishful thinking hehe.

I'm taking spore prints as we speak...Can anyone tell if I'm on the right track?? And feedback would be greatly appreciated. And NO, I haven't eaten any! I'm not that ignorant...

Thanks
ShroomSkin

If you have a scanner, you can always just scan the mushrooms...

Orange and growing from cow dung, eh? Thats odd, I'd say its not active. It's no Cube or Cope, thats for sure.

Wait a while on that one you found that looks like a Lib Cap, and see if the cap turns into a black goo. If it does, then you've got a Coprinus species mushroom, also not active.

Keep tryin man.

Unfortuantely I don't have a scanner either hehe. Finally got the prints done, the orange bell shaped ones have a light brown kinda cinnamonish print, and the lib. cap looking thing's print is jet black. I have so many different kinds of shrooms in my backyard its pathetic. I know none of em are active , but there's these really cool looking purple ones with caps that are always perfectly circular and a perfect zig-zaggy margin. I got these all over the place! They do stain blue in the cap, but I've never heard of a psilocybin shroom that looks like that, so I don't think they're active. Tell me if I'm wrong! I still haven't looked all over the field yet, I just found those after about 10 minutes, so I'm far from through. I'm hoping to find some cubes, I don't know how common they are wild in central texas.

Cheers
