Might these be Liberty Caps?
    #769962 - 07/23/02 10:32 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I went mushroom hunting today, and found some subbs. It also rained...which was great since we haven?t had it in weeks! I visited a horse pasture, and found some of these mushrooms growing in close proximity with horse manure. I?ve found them before, but have always had no idea what they were. Could they possibly be Liberty Caps? The base of one of the stems bruised a deep purple. I?m taking a spore print now. Any ideas? I?m hoping for good news!!!!






Thanks!!

Damn! Oh well..it is very early. Any ideas of what it is though? Thanks for the replies. By the way, I just looked at the spore print is jet black.

They are paneaolus...maybe campanulatus group which include sphinctrinus etc. Allthough they don't look like the ones I usually find in the farm fields..someone else?

Thye are Panaeolus sphinctrinus, commoonn in horse dung and in the dung of cattle and rotted hay or composting hay mixed with manure and sweashells.

It is not psychoactive.

Not psychoactive? The dosage calculator says to ingest about 6 dry grams for a level 2 trip...?

Ha! I see. Ah well...even if they were active, there is no where near enough of an abundance of them to gather more than enough for one trip! Thanks guys!! Happy hunting.
