Liberty caps do not grow in cow shit. They grow in sedge grasses. This mushroom that you have found is not a psilocybe, in fact it is a grey mycena. All psilocybea have certain characteristics which make them identifiable. I see this mushroom all the time when I look for cyans, and it is nothing important.

cool, what are some of the characteristics that made you know that it was that myceana? Also, it was not growing in shit, it was growing near the base of a tree in my friends old horse pasture, next to shit I'm sure. I also find a bunch that look almost the same except that they're much lighter brown, about same color gills, and a stem that kind of changes from light to dark. Those grow in basically the same area as the others that I have the pics posted.

Bongboy-

Grab a copy of a good mushroom ID book, maybe P. Mushrooms of the World by Stamets or something. It will have both macroscopic and microscopic properties to look for.

Just glad you're asking around - too many people eat everything they find. :wink:

Don't eat every thing you find. By a book if you're going to be a shroom hunter. Otherwise you'll die very soon, and then how can you trip?
