Saps caps are golden-yellow to tawny-yellow with yellowish flesh

Gals caps are yellow-brown or yellowish if it is drying.  If the caps are wet there will be lines (striations).

Comparsion pictures can be found on Google Image or here by using our search engine.

You did the right thing by throwing them away.  If you fuck around with galerinas you'll be dead, no question.  If you just want to study them and the differences between the two species it's cool.  By eating or experimenting on this can get you dead.

Don't do it--seriously.

If you can see my sig line, read it.

There's nothing worse than a lucky fryish whose luck has run out.

I donĀ“t think G. sapineus is active.  There are some sources that say it is though and there are active species that look exactly like it, so its hard to say.  The best features to distinguish gyms from Galerina in the field is the large size, bitter taste, and squamulose cap in Gymnopilus.

In my experiences with Gymnopilus luteoviridis only the aborted or young pins show signs of bruising... Aborts in psilocybe cubensis are also known to be higher potency... Im not sure if Gymnopilus sapineus is the same as Gymnopilus luteoviridis  with the bruising but its a good thing to keep in mind.
