Need Liberty Cap info
    #946790 - 10/09/02 08:43 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Just wondering if any of you hardcore shroomers know of a website, or have a URL of a webpage that I can use as a reference in identifying Liberty Caps ( Psilocybe semilanceata)
.......Lots of pictures, and habitat preferences for the pacific northwest would be great ( Live near Vancouver Bc)............

Would really apreciate it:)

Heres a really rough overview, but just do a search on google and you'll find something...

Description Slimy, narrowly conical, brown to tan cap with brownish gills and smooth, off-white stalk; in pastures and manured areas.

Cap 3/8" - 1" (1-2.5 cm) wide; sharply conical, often peaked, and not expanding; sticky, smooth; brownish, fading to tan, bruising blue on margin.

Gills attached, close, broad; grayish, becoming dark brown.

Stalk 2" - 4" (5-10 cm) high, 1/16" (1.5 mm) thick; very thin, whitish.

Veil partial veil evanescent.

Spores 11-14 X 7-8 microns; elliptical, smooth, with pore at tip. Spore print purple-brown.

Edibility Hallucinogenic.

Season Late August-November.

Habitat Scattered to numerous, in tall grass and grassy hummocks in cow pastures.

Range Widely distributed; common in Pacific NW.; also reported in Quebec.

Look-alikes The hallucinogenic P. pelliculosa and P. silvatica grow in wood chips or mulch, and have conical caps.

Comments This species is one of the most familiar of the Oregon coast.

There have also been at least 10 postings here in the hunting forum this past few days...nice pics and I think they will describe the habitat. I believe its found in tall grassy areas, not in or on dung. Found North of Californa, west of the cascades and into British Columbia...so says my guide.
