I'm in the NW..but canada..and we have the same species pretty much..

Cyans will blue when you touch them..usually big time..and usually pretty quickly. I find them under leaves sometimes, it depends how 'heavy' is heavy?

bark mulch is ok ..just not cedar.

I'm not a real pro at Liberty Caps..but Psylosymon is....
Symon..??

the common p. semilenceata look-alike you're finding is probably myceana. they are many and they are everywhere. Anything reddish should be avoided. wavy caps or not. galerinas will sport a wavy cap like p.cyanescens, but will stop your kidneys and/or liver from working, and thusly will stop you from living.

get a book on the subject -

also- the season is pretty much OVER.

Thanks for the replies.

I have been reading up, I think you are right it is some kinda mycena I am seeing for the semi. I am pretty sure I am not seeing galerinas for the cyan look-alike though. Plus I would not deal with anything that did not blue and give a purplish spore print. Most guide books have one or two photos, and they seem to feature the more dramatic types. Harder to ID these boring common ones.

Season is really over? No frost yet, I thought that was what ended it.

damn,
I found some wavy carmel ones with white stems that dried out identical to Mj's pictures. Left purple spore prints, but looks like they turned black, they didnt turn an obvious blue. Can these be gallerinas? found growing in the grass by the road.

Purple spore print means you're safe. By "turning black" what do you mean? Did you dry them?

Mattso may have been right after all. I found quite a few more of these cyan look alikes this weekend in different places. One mushroom book I just bought has a picture of Galerinas that look just like what I found (with the exception noted below). None of the other pictures I have seen of galerinas look like this though. Most other pictures, including Stamets "Ps. mushrooms of the world" show a reddish galerina without a very wavy margin. The ones I found were tannish orange, some with quite a wavy margin. They have pale orange gills and stems though, no bluing of course. However, there is no annulus, which all books seem to have on galerinas. I cannot help but be fascinated that such a deadly mushroom grows in the same habitat and looks so similar at first glance, if indeed these are galerinas. Also, does it make sense that galerinas would have a later season?

Hey Crispy.So you think they are myceanas? Are the patches huge? You usually have to be in fields for the Libs, but I did discover some a few years ago at a park where we were skipping school.We were smokin one at this little baseball diamond, when I look down to find a dscent sized patch of Semis.This was a wierd place to find them because lots of geese are in the area shitting all over the place which is bad for magic mushrooms.I never found them there again though.
Do your suspected galerinas have a brittle stem?So no blue eh, shitty, keep on lookin.How cold is it there.It is pretty much over here.I can't wait for some spring Stuntzis.
Post pictures of your findings.Knowing the look alikes is just as important as knowing the good ones.
What was the spore print color of your look alikes?
Hey Rob, how did you dry them? Did they just rot?
