:uploads/B1TwoCopesBugCube:
You could almost mistake these caps for cubensis, but they are actually just really big copelandias. Notice the hole in the one cap...thats cause theres bugs inside there getting all shroomy hehehe



:uploads/B2ThreeCubies:
Now this is what it is all about. Three perfectly fresh Large Psilocybes :smile:



:uploads/B3CopesFreshCluster:
A Great copelandia find. All very fresh mushrooms. Notice the nice cluster on the right, all you need to do is grab them all at once and they pull out together smoothly. I pick all the small ones too definately...I prefer the smaller fresh ones to the larger ones with more time for the bugs to get to them before me.



:uploads/B4FakesOnDung:
A picture of some of the fakes that most unexperienced hunters could mistake for copes. They grow right out of dung...dont let that dead log fool you, they grow out of dung. Usually, about half the cow pies producing mushrooms will be fakes, the other half magic (and that estimation is just about right). They do not bruise blue at all.



:uploads/B5ThreeCopesCrackle:
Here is an example of how some copelandias have the crackled effect on their caps. Three really nice medium size shrooms.



:uploads/B5CopesBlueDotCrackle:
Copelandias again. When these things are growing, theyre Really growing...every five feet almost. This picture in particular shows a Blue Dot in the center of a couple of the caps. Notice the crackle effect.

:uploads/C1TwoNiceCubes:
Two Large Cubes. Almost too perfect of timeing to be picked. The gills were still very fresh. The caps have not yet straightened and curved upwards. Very nice.



:uploads/C2CurledCubePlusSmaller:
A mature cubensis. This one has its caps curling up, that is when the gills turn to a very dark brownish purple, and the bugs have started to feast upon the gills. To the right of it is another tiny little cube (matured with veil broken, but just very small).



:uploads/C3FakesDungRedStems:
Fakes. Growing directly from dung. Remember the color of these caps because they are common. Observe the redish brown color of the stems opposed to the copelandias. These do not stain blue.



:uploads/C4CopesLeftRight:
All copelandias here. On the left are the more mature specimens and on the right are few fresh ones with pretty orange caps.



:uploads/C5CopesFakeOnTop:
Nice find of copelandias again! But be careful kiddies,.. the one highest on top this image was a fake.



:uploads/C6CopesCloseupStems:
More and more and more copelandias! This shot gives you a closer view of what they look like. Remember the color of these stems. They arent white, they arent brown, they arent red or green or purple. They are orangish/earthy yellow, and about half the clusters found have noticeable bluing on the stems before you even pick them.

must be nice and easy picking corprophilic mushrooms.you dont have to swim thru tall wet grass to find the treasures!!! :smile: and the cubs are big.seems so easy.i have a couple short grass fields which are nice and easy to locate the shrooms too, but other places are alot harder when the grass is tall and matted.


great pics man!! :biggrin:

Hey GGreatOne234,

I would suggest to you that when you take a picture of the cubies and copes that you lie flat down on the ground and put your camera on the ground and then take a picture of the mushrooms in the cow pie from their point of view.

Get that perspective view.

IT makes for a great photograph.

Remember I will soon post some of the Panaeolus antillarums for you.

Also, look out for Chlorophyllum molybdites, or "Morgan's Lepiota"otherwise referred to as "reen gills."

Very toxic but not deadly, makes you retch and puke and stomach cramps up the ass.

Over 95 percent of all mushroom poisoning cases in Florida are the result of people looking for Psilocybe cubensis and accidntly consuming the former species, which superficially resembles P. cubensis at times.

The Lepiota has scales all over the cap, a white ring, and does not stain blue, However in the penial stage they mimic youn p. cubensis.

Be cool and try not to run into Stephen Peele when you are foraging.

I use to have to paper bags. one had P. cubensis in them and then a second bag was placed inside the first bage evenly and I would pick blackberrys in case anyone came up to me I would pick along the fenced areas, especially where cars might drive by and spot me from the corner of their eyes. Thats where I would find the blackberrys.

have a shroomy day and look out for mary sleezy.

I laughed, I cried... a timeless show, one for the whole family. I'm still shivering with flows of endorphans, my knuckles are white. I... I have to go now and get myself back together.... thank you gg, I'll never forget this moment.

Great Pics!
I live in Mississippi, which doesnt seem to be the best location for picking Cubies right now. I will be going to Destin, FL shortly, and was wondering if any nearby residents have any inside info on whether it is a good picking time, and if any locations are better than others. Hows the weather there right now? Wet I hope.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
-User420

Thank You everyone. This is really only a rough draft of a work in progress.

A few things I have to say in response to all your comments; Psylosymon, if you notice the similarity in backrounds of all these pictures youll see that theres a lot of pine needles and leaves, shady dark pictures opposed to that crazy florida sunshine. This is because the mushrooms are growing best inside the forest...that drought really scared them psilly. Picking shrooms in the open field under the Sun yeilds much better cubies, and a lot less problems with bug infestation...and...no spiderwebs...

User420, have a good time in Destin, I love that place. White sand, bikini babes, sun tans and fruit drinks. Try to go look for some shrooms when your there, because they are out there.

Mj, people picking Morgans Green Gills Frightens me. I need to get some pictures of them. And the reason I was not down to the ground as I normally would have taken these mushroom pics, would be best explained from a post I made in the Advanced Cultivation of Mushrooms forum here at the shroomerre
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
hey everybody, heres the story behind this picture:


:uploads/Fireants:

...so several months ago i had this excellent idea of transplanting some cow patties from a field, to a safer spot that would not involve trespassing. i took a good fifty pounds of dried up cow turds and a few little globs of mycellium where i had found cubies. i put them all in a big circle outside of my field, so i could check on it for shrooms everytime i visited the field.

must have been 4-5 months since then, and a few days ago i finally saw a little cubie popping up! (i put a orange arrow in the picture pointing at it if you cant really see it)

so i kneel down and im focusing in to take the picture... Snap goes the camera and then a split second after that, SNAP goes my right arm.

Fire Ants. attacked the shit out of me. ive got a good 40 welts on my arm still from it.

those things will crawl onto you with out you feeling them, and then they all attack at the same exact time! fuck.

i took that as a sign as to why i should not grow shrooms or mess around with any of that. i just find them, and pick them.

fuck that, why should i mess around with moveing cowshit when i find stuff like this everyday?...

dazzle your eyes upon this one...
:uploads/Dazzle:

and THAT is why I was not gun hoe about getting closeups with these copelandia pictures.
