Dude, buy yourself a pocket mushroom guide. Once you know what your looking for most Psilocybin containing shrooms, especially the Cubie are dead easy to distinguish. Check out the Grow/find section of the shroomery if you don't have enough time left to purchase a guide. As for the purple/red liquid. I've never heard of that one. Cubes flesh does blue noticably if bruised. And if you take a spore print the spores will be a dark purple colour. Nuff waffle, check out Grow/Find section.
I'm located in England so what to find and wether it's the right time to find it in the Virginia Mountains is totally out of my juristiction. Anyone out there assist?
:smile:

A simple spore print technique to aid in the identity process of shroom hunting. Is to cut off the stalk of the shroom and place the cap onto a piece of paper (white, unless of course you think the spores are gonna be white. Then you'd use black). After half a day lift the cap and see what colour spores you've got. For I.D purposes it really is that simple. Only problem is the time factor. Which if your in the field can be inhibeting. In this case, look to see if there are mature/old specimens of the shroom around and see if there is any spore deposit on the stem.
Best of luck with your trip. I'm outta here till Monday.
Peace :wink:

Stamets in his book claims there are 2 ways do determine if a mushroom is a psilocybe. 1. There will be some bluing where the mushroom is handled and/or bruised.
2. The spore print will be brownish/purplish or blackish/purplish.

These two conditions must occur together!! Just one existing doesn't make it a psilocybe.

He says that if any one of these conditions exists without the other, it could still be deadly. That would mean DON'T eat it if it bruises blue, but the spore print doesn't look purplish.

Be smart. Get some pics of the mushrooms you're looking for. Don't eat any mushroom if you're not sure of it's identity.
