Theres more than just laughing Gyms in Maine, mycomountain. Panaeolus subbalteatus and Psilocybe caerulipes can also be found, and are much preffered over the bitter Gymnopilus. Not all Gymnopilus spp. contain psilocin. In fact I'm pretty sure only one spp. of gymnopilus contains psilocin.
The Panaeolus subbalteatus can be found in rotted hay, and sometimes in manure. Its season is late spring, and again in early to mid-fall. Psilocybe caerulipes grows on deciduous wood and wood mulch. Especially on Birch and Maple. At least thats what the book says. I'm not speaking from experiance. I've only ever hunted and picked warm weather species. But I'm pretty sure you can find both of these species in Maine. The subbs are only probable to occur in Maine. The caerulipes however, are documented to occur in Maine. So theres at least one "psilo" mushie in your neck of the woods. I'd get my ass out there and find it

The blue footed Psilocybe is P. stuntzii and does not grow in maine.
And Lizard King, there are now 14 species of Gymnopilus which have been analysed and found to contain Psilocine and or psilocybine.
Qui Gon, Psilocybe subfimetaria has been renamed as Psilocybe sierrae. It grows from manure not the roots of grass and The liberty cap was collected in New York and In New Foundaland so it could be in Maine.
And Maine Lobster Fishermen have been reported to have a shroom festival every year and consume Panaeolus mushrooms.
