    #9964233 - 03/13/09 01:14 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

okay these were found in the fall in northern michigan my buddy has a spot with tons of these he has been eating them for about  3 years now. he says they are bluefoots but they look much smaller than the bluefoot pictures i have seen here any ideas?












we tore up that log and kept the myc. in a tub and never really took care of it i didnt have the internet so i couldnt ask around about how to get more wood going  but i can always get more myc. in the fall:grin:

Are all the gills whitish or do they become darker in age?

hey nice to see people are excited about these i think the gillsmight look that way because of the picture or something they are a dark purple spore print... i do have more pics but dont have the time to upload them all right now but i will soon.

does look like P. caerulipes,  more than P. Ovoideocystidiata, possibly something new?.

either way a super huge find in my book!

you might consider sending some specimens to a qualified member to review, such as Workman.
a microscope is probably the only thing here that will decide what mushroom that is.

Those mushrooms are pretty cool! Yeah, your probably gonna need some microscopy to figure out just exactly what those are. I'd also like to see more pics and get a better description of the habitat. Nice finds!:thumbup:

Definitely an active Psilocybe, an amazing and rare find in Michigan! 

It looks most like Psilocybe caerulipes to me, but other possibilities are P. silvatica or P. liniformans var. americana.

in the first pic it appears as if there may be universal veil remnants (warts) on the edges of the cap, how odd?


these appear to be immature. pics of the bigger ones would be sweet!

Great shots and find, fetalscab.

Maybe Psilocybe liniformans var. americana.  They are not P. caerulipes.  I found those last year over Labor Day.  Here's a couple of comparision photos.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Psilocybe_Caerulipes.jpg

Both photos are mine and may not be reproduced without written permission.  I gave WarriorSoul permission and he's the only one that asked. 

Notice the umbo on even the smallest specimen.  Plus the season is way off.  They don't come out till late June.

They aren't P. silvatica either.  The caps aren't striate at all.  The striations appear with the cap is sufficiently translucent enough for the gills to show through.

Make as many spore prints as you can and watch for another flush.  Specimens and prints should be sent to Workman.  Also Alan Rockefeller if you have enough.  If there is any left over I would like a copy as well.  If not, it's no big deal.

Congratulations.  :thumbup:

His friend found these in the fall, so the season isn't off for P.caerulipes, but they seem too small to be that species and they arent growing cespitose like caerulipes does.

And like Danny said the habitat is wrong for P.liniformans var. americana.

I vote for Psilocybe silvatica, the cap can be even to striatulate, gregarious but not cespitose, also the dark color and small size points this way. The season for this species doesn't start until the end of September.

Good call, Danny.  I'm not familiar with that species.  I was just going with what Alan said.

WS:  Yeah, I didn't read the post carefully enough to notice he said in the fall.  I was looking at the mushrooms and their features.  What does "even to striatulate"  mean?  Striate means "marked by stripes, grooves, or ridges," striatulate means "marked by small stripes, grooves, or ridges."  What does "even" mean in this context?  I think it is futile to speculate beyond this.  That said, I don't think it is any of those mushrooms.  P. silvatica, as you said, comes closest.

In this context "even" means "without striations" or
the opposite of striate.

According to biology.com "even" is defined as "Without an irregularity, flaw, or blemish".

In mycology, it is also sometimes written this way, "striatulate when moist, even when dry" or "even to striate when moist".

In this fashion, the word "even" is in juxtaposition to "striatulate",  this should make the intent for contrast between the two quite clear.

Thanks for highlighting the need for clarification in this matter, if there are any further details to take into consideration, please contact my office.:blazed:

Yeah, what's up with that? I don't live too far from the Jacques Cartier river system and I've been looking for more info including pics of quebecensis. Hard to find. :smoker: I'm hoping the range is a little broader than currently published.

I'd look in ravines along the river in sandy/woody debris.They probably do go beyond their known range.

Just like alot of other mushrooms.

:crazy2:
I ruled out Psilocybe quebecensis because the stipes are brittle in that species, like all psilocybes in the section Aztecorum..
The stipes on this find appear flexuous, a trait of the section Semilanceatae.

Also with P. quebecensis, the base should be furnished with long conspicuous rhizomorphs and they will grow cespitose.


Psilocybe quebecensis

I understand your reasoning but I'm sticking with quebecensis on this one.

Me too.

The guilartensis I found didn't show ALL of the characteristics one would expect from it. Not every specimen of every species will conform to the exact description of a species.

Considering how rare and unstudied quebecensis are, they might have traits that haven't been recorded.

Lastly, the smaller specimens in that quebecensis picture DO resemble some of the OP's pics. The OP's mushrooms also resemble the quebecensis pic in PMOTW.

That would rule if they are P.quebecensis. Sucks we'll probably have to wait til fall to see eh? :sad:

Time flies when you're having fun.  I've always respected your ID skilz, Danny.  But sometimes your calls knock me to the ground.  You come out from left field and tag the mushroom on the head when no one else even thinks of it.  It's cool as hell when you do that.

P.quebecensis are nearly hemispheric at first..
should we digress and ignore this feature also?

We should ignore everything until a microscopic examination is done because no one here is familiar enough with this mushroom to give it a positive species ID.

No matter what it is, its a good and rare find.

Ignorance is bliss eh?
No one is doubting this is a rare and important find, its  been said several times.
We can however, debate the macroscopic features and learn something (hopefully) in the process.
Its easy to say you think this mushroom is this or that, but without saying why you think so, your just guessing.
Intelligent debate involves backing up thoughts with evidence.

I hadnt seen that pic before. nice!
caerulipes does seem the best match so far, but why are they all so small?

1-3.5 cm broad(Stamets). They seem to fall within that range.

Unless the macromorphology has wide variations those mushrooms are not P. caerulipes.  Roy's photo and yours have both been identified as P. caerulipes here.  Where did you find your photo identified as P. quebecensis?

As far as I'm concerned, being the only other person who has found this from the Shroomery, the only thing this mushroom has going for it is the location, habitat and the season.  Where's the umbo?  There isn't one.  Alexander Smith found lots of P. caerulipes in Michigan.

There certainly is an umbo in that last photo, also lack of an umbo alone wouldnt rule out caerulipes.
It is at least in the same section and most likely caerulipes, it is known to have a large variation according to the description.

search flickr for caerulipes and you'll get an idea of the mess involved.
Some of the mycologists on there dont know as much as they think they do.
I could go into more detail, but at this point, it feels redundant.

Barely an umbo.  However, as you say, it might be the variations that need to be taken into account.  Yes, I'm more than aware of the flicker mess; I've seen it far too many times.  Also notice the pubescent stipe in those last photos.  That, more than anything, leans towards P. caerulipes.  Nevertheless, I'm holding out for P. quebecensis.  Aside from having reasons I can't post publicly, I'm stubborn that way. :tongue2:

Microscopy of specimen provided by fetalscab

Spores length: 7.7-9.8 microns, pale yellowish brown.
Cheilocystidia length: (15.5)18.5-30.3 microns, rarely bifurcate.
Pleurocystidia  very scarce and scattered, easy to miss or discount as anomolous.
Basidia, both 2 and 4 spored observed.
Clamps present.



Despite what appears to be the occasional pleurocystidium, all other features match well with Psilocybe caerulipes

It is not unusual for scarce pleurocystidia to be lacking from species descriptions, as previously seen with Psilocybe cyanescens, bohemica and serbica.

Now that I have looked at a few other collections of actual Psilocybe caerulipes, fetalscab's collection is more obviously something different.  It is actually a much better match for Psilocybe quebecensis which has pleurocystidia, wider spores and non-forking cheilocystidia.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11193005

It was bugging me that there were obvious pleurocystidia, but at the time I didn't have other specimens to compare.

Update:  This is Psilocybe caerulipes.  It was collected in Michigan, where the holotype of P. caerulipes was collected, and they are much smaller than P. aztecorum, which is synonymous with P. quebecensis.  The cap also looks a lot different.
