found this in poop storage box
    #840709 - 08/24/02 03:59 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

My friend found this in some horse poop he was storing. He noticed some light purple mycelia on some of the "nuggets" and these showed up a few days later.

the veil was still attached

the gills seemed to be clean and no blueing was noticed.

He?s not sure if this is enough information to positively ID but out of curiousity, it?d be nice to know what they are.

if it's not blueing, how can you tell it's p. cubensis

it looks like just a similarly colored immature shroom to me

Here?s a better pic of the top of the cap. Notice the wrinkles running perpendicular to the edge of the cap.

Eh... If they're not bluing and you're not getting purple veils then I'd lean away from Ps. Cubensis.
They do look like some species of Psilocybe. Perhaps some young Psilocybe coprophilia? Ps. coprophilia is not active, but they're pretty common on horse dung...

Lets see what others have to say... Mr. M, ToxicMan?

Wouldn't there be no bluing in too young cubensis ?

Unity is correct, even the mycelium(fuzzy growth before the mushroom) of Cubensis blues, so of course young fruits would briuse blue.

GumbyDude, does it not make sense that younger cubes would blue more than fully mature ones due to the the higher psilocin concentration per weight? i've never realy noticed exept with aborts but that is probably because i half smash them pulling them off sometimes.
as far as them being imature coprophila, i think they look too big, the caps look to light and the stems look too white. also i've never seen coprophila with enlarged stems like that, and so unevn. i may be wrong but i'm basing this on my bservations of the species.
anyday, does your friend have any idea how these could have gotten in the dung or dose he think they came in with it?

concretefeet: my friend says the poop must have been slightly colonized when he got it. The mycelia was a light purple. It's been stored indoors since he first collected it (from outside an Iowa horse stable). The caps flatten out and get wavy when mature. He says they never did produce visible spores or blueing. He's guessing not but he'd like to know if it would still be ok to use this for his projects if it were cleaned of mushrooms and pasteurized.

They look like weird Cubes to me.
-So what if they do not show any bluing.

I wouldn't eat those though. lol.

They sure do look like Cubes to me though, same with the little pins.

Psilocybe Cubensis mycelium however is thick, ropey and bright white/bruising blue. Not purple, so the purple may just be a contamination.

Horse poop in my opinion is not the greatest of substrate in the wild to support Cubies. Cubes on horse shit don't quite look the same as the ones on cow shit. But not to say that horse shit is useless, because it rocks when used for cultivation of many different varieties of mushrooms.

But this is hunting dude,

You should steralize that shit and use it still.

Keep shroomin,
GG
