My first hopeful find (ID Request)
    #7459204 - 09/27/07 09:20 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I was hoping someone could help identify these mushrooms which i am 90% confident are liberty caps.

Location: I found these around long grass next to a river here in Scotland. This area seemed the perfect spot due to the grass being extremely moist due to the river passing by.

Size: These mushrooms ranged from around 4-7cm in height.

Unfortunately i did not have my digital camera with me and had to take these pictures with my camera phone. It would be great if someone help identify these:









I will take better pictures tonight when i charge my Digital Camera.

looks like a mixed collection to me. none appear to be libs, most look like a Mycena species... spore prints should be whitish, lib spores would be a dark purple-brown...

don't eat them.

I see two species in the mix- Mycena and Panaeolus, but I see no Psilocybe species in those photos. Do not eat those.

Are both Mycena and Panaeolus similar looking to the Psilocybe species? I was almost certain those were liberty caps.

Would a spore print help matters?

not really, once you are familiar with Psilocybes. new hunters often confuse Mycenas and various other species for libs though...

yes, taking/seeing a spore print would quickly convince you those are not liberty caps.

Psilocybe have brown to purple/brown spores, Panaeolus have black spores, and Mycena have white spores.

No, they are Mycena.

I assume you are referring to the second image above.
