Happiest Day of my Life? (plz help!)
    #997103 - 10/27/02 04:50 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I just about had a heart attack shroom huntin a few minutes ago.. But, now that I have refreshed my mind, Im not so sure :frown: These sure look a lot like gyms, eh? I found them in a big cluster on a long dead piece of wood. Please confirm my ID :smile: This will be my first find if they are gyms... [Email]argh@@!@!@![/Email] They are also doing a sort of greenish/blue bruise on the bottom. They are a little darker than the other pics of these guys tho, thats why im not 100%.
(Those are my girlfriends fingernails btw, so yall dont think im some sort of cross dresser or something ) :smile:

Its too bad there aren't any that have matured yet.  This would aid in identification.  From the pictures, what you have looks like Gymnopilus ventricosus, which is supposedly inactive (which would coincide with the lack of bruising), or weakly active.  These mushrooms are supposedly so bitter as to not be worth ingesting.  I'm not 100% positive on my ID (color of spore print? presence of a well developed veil? size at maturity?), but thought I would share my opinion with you anyway.  :crazy:

OK, you do not have Gallerinas there, so you can rule that out as a deadly look-alike. By bruising, I meant to say "blueing" which would indicate psilocin. I don't see the bruising reaction in your picture as being "blue," which is troubling.

It has been suggested that Gymnopilus spectabilis (my second guess after Gymnopilus ventricosus) contains not psilocybin, but some oligoisoprenoid which acts differently but is still psychoactive. While I'm pretty certain that you don't have a deadly species here, I would advise caution in ingesting these, as they may have chemical constituents that would blur the line between "toxic" and "recreational" (much like Amanita muscaria).

I have little experience in collecting this genus, as the rust colored spore print makes me nervous and because a blackening reaction is not always easy to distinguish from a blueing reaction. Hopefully someone more familiar with this genus will weigh in.

Ive heard they bruise like bluish green tho? i dunno i cant decide, i have never seen blueing b4. My buddy sugggested could be immature honey mushrooms, but the cap isn't sticky. Im taking a spore print right now. Thanks a lot for helping bowling-name!

Just looking at those I thin they're Armillaria mellea, Honey Mushrooms. You should try for a spore print to verify. Honey Mushrooms do not always have a slimy cap. Here in Colorado, unless it's *very* wet, the caps are normally dry. Some of the Armillaria species have viscid caps, but you shouldn't rely on that for ID.

Happy mushrooming!

I think your right, damnit to hell. Man, mushroom huntin in tennessee fuckin sucks. I feel like im just wasting my time. We ate 2 of them, got a placebo effect (i think it was from hoping that they were gyms so bad), but nothing as far as trippin. Im never gonna freakin find anything active! argh! im just gonna freakin start growin shit man....
Oh yeh, thanks for helping me ID these guys (and thanks for destroying all my hopes and dreams) lol, just kiddin on the last part

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
