Hey buddy I'm from MD too although I live in Charm City. Anyway, there are panaeolus subbalteatus around right now. As a matter of fact I just found a bunch today....in the middle of Baltimore!!!!!! You can find these little guys in manured gardens (which is where I found mine), in haystacks (which many people from the westcoast say is the best source for these fun-guys), in pastures, and sometimes in lawns (usually lawns that have been manured). They are usually 2-6" tall with fairly stiff, hollow stems that have vertical grooves running vertically up and down the stems. The stems are a reddish-brown color, and towards the bottoms of the stems there is some white hairlike stuff. The caps are 1.25-2" in diameter, fawn in color with a darker band around the outer edge. The spores are black. For pictures go to mj's website (which you can access through the links section of this website) or go to erowid.com (mj's pic's are there too).

Shaman1, Paul Stamets' book Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World (1996) writes of Panaeolus Subbalteatus: "I do not recommend ingesting this mushroom raw. Anecdotal reports from the Pacific Northwest associate the injestion of raw mushrooms with stomach cramps, loss of muscular strength, and/or a feeling of malaise. However, Christian Ratsch found that this species often induces dreamy, aphrodisiacal experiences, and is increasingly popular in the resurgent pagan festivals of middle and northern Europe" (p. 82).

Have your "anectotal reports" of Panaeolus Subbalteatus been consistent, particularly regarding the negative effects?

Also, do you have any reason to suspect that they wouldn't grow down here in DC? I'm guessing that the absolute best place to find these is near horse pastures.

I have had nothing but good experiences with this little guy. Of course I have dried them before consumption every time I have eaten them. Besides, mj has nothing but good reports of this species and I trust him. Do I think that they would grow around DC??? Yeah, I don't see why not, if they grow in MD, then they are sure to grow there. After all it is only a couple of miles difference.

What else grows in DC? I believe that I found 3 stuntzii in Rock Creek Park, but I'm not sure... I didn't have the nuts to eat them.

What should I expect?

Cerridwin,

There are no Psilocybe stunzii where you are.

Sorry.
