Psilocybe caerulipes in NY? Pics inside..
    #799702 - 08/06/02 11:08 AM (16 years, 2 months ago)

While picking some Pan. Subbs today in a horse pasture, I noticed some small mushrooms popping out of the ground, that appeared similar to cubies, or caerulipes. I highly doubted they could be cubies, since I?m in NY. I took one home and took a print. The gills were attached to the stem by the way, and I saw no signs of blueing. The spore print, if not clear in the pics, is a purplish black. Here they are. Please help me identify them..thanks!!

P. caeryulipes is a woodchip and beauty bark musrhoom it does not grow from manured soil.

Sorry and the images are to dark to identify.

Close but no cigar

Like MJ said, the habitat doesn't match up. And if it were Psilocybe caerulipes, you'd know it, they blue like mad.

It could possibly be Psilocybe coropholia(sp?), a nonactive species of Psilocybe =\... Not sure about that though, I think NY is way too far north for Ps. coropholia.

Lets see what the other think..

Strange. The cap was sticky, a characteristic I've read about the caerulipes. Also, when I pulled the mushroom from the soil, I noticed it went alot deeper than I thought, almost like a root! I wonder what it could be...??

Upon further inspection and reading up, I'm pretty sure you are right Gumby. I got these characteristics off of www.shroomhunter.netmegs.com for the coropholia:

Stem: thick;whitish, darkening to brown but not bruising blue

Spores: elliptical, smooth, with pore at tip

Spore Print: purplish/brown

Habitat: Single to numerous on horse or cow dung

Range: Widespread throughout north america


The mushroom I found matches all of these. Ah well..:(

We get Psilocybe coprophila here in Colorado up in the subalpine zone of the mountains (up close to timber line) on horse or cow dung. I also know that it has been found in Alaska (!) growing on moose dung.

Happy mushrooming!

My bet also goes to Ps. Coprophila, it also could be Ps. Semiglobata.
