No. I don't know how many "LBM"s are edible, poisonous or deadly, but there are lots that are no good. If you know exactly what you're looking for, it helps a lot. Definatly need a couple good field guides. Take prints to aid in identification. There are a lot of really smart people here that should be able to help you out more and give you some good pointers.

plus you ought to know that gill color has nothing to do with spore color, one time it took me 2 hours to explain this to some people. they found a mushroom, told me it had a brown sporeprint, i said "how do you know? did you take a sporeprint?" and they said "yes, we looked under the cap and it was brown" now i looked at the stipe and could see where the spores landed on it and they were clearly rusty red. vertical grooves, twisty stipe, clear annualis, orange somewhat wavy cap, vancouver mulched bed after a t-storm. prognosis, probably a galerina.
but anywho, the point is, they got actually hostile when i suggested that the sporeprint could not be taken simply by looking at the gill color. sheesh! no wonder people wind up dead! so i carefully explain about putting the cap gills down on white paper overnight. and one of them says "but its so easy just to look at the gills." totally missing the point. im not kidding, this seriously took hours and im pretty sure they never beleived me, probably just humored me because they diddnt want to beleive it. all i can say is that its a good thing they dont do drugs.

hello againe loren. from what i understand, not every mushroom with dark purple spore prints is psychoactive. i may stand to be corrected by saying that though

yesterday i was combing a open field for cubes. i found one cube in it, then continued finding patches of mushrooms that resembled the cube so much i was amazed! only thing that really set them appart was they didnt stain blue. and the veils were black instead of dark purple! bee careful buddy

heheh, theres mushrooms everywhere in florida right now, couple more weeks things should be REALLY SHroomy out there.

"Or are there other rarer psilocybe analogs that are harmful?" ---damnit Loren, ive told you like ten times now that the only shroom in florida you should be eating are Psilocybe cubensis.
