I would not eat them mate. They are pretty mushies though. I thought you were getting snowed on? For example the Raiders game. Get some pics of those beauties posted. Do they grow only when it is cold. Do you eat them? Take care Your friendly banana bender BB
It's not a problem eating them as long as they are dried first. The Siberians knew all about it. They grow in the autumn in symbiotic relationship with pine trees, and Birch trees I believe but I haven't seen them grow with Birch myself. I must say I prefer psilocybes though. Are they still growing up there?

Have not seen any for a while. We need about three solid days of rain for them to really get into gear. Not much rain up here and record lows. I hope it does not do in the mycellium. Last Saturday I was boogie boarding in 22 degree water now it is 4 degrees air temp! Pretty fresh for Qld. I passed through the ACT several years go. I stayed a few days in Kingston and a few in Queenbeyan. ent to the Raiders game. I saw on this shroom page of oz that there are psilocybe varieties around the ACT right? What is a amanita buzz like? see ya bb

beesly, the snowy mounts (in vic) are bout 3 hours drive, I can get good shrooms in an hour and a bits drive, from a mountain in the North Central region of vic (good spot, not known but many hehehehe). I know they are psilocybe species, um.. slimy brown cab with like a little knob at the top, thin white stemp, and a brown purple spore powder, and they stain blue as well.
I remember as a kid going through the brindabella mountains, short cutting it to tumut, that there was AMANITA MUSCARIA everywhere. I wouldn't eat those things ever.
