    They are growing all over the place around here There are a lot of Douglas firs and I’m assuming these have something to do with the trees. Are they psychoactive 04E1EF22-A50A-4639-BD67-4C00352247DC.jpeg

    From all the research I have done it is not marasmius oreades I just cannot figure out what it is. I find it in grass It is cepitose and alone I need someone who can identify This is frustrating

    I can’t find out because I am having issues with google Tells me I have no internet connection but I do. We have a lot of flooding in southern BC Not where we are but apparently there are internet lines affected Maybe you can do some research I’m telling you these things are over the place.

    Not many - just two in the USA, Inocybe insignis and Inocybe bohemica nom. prov. I. bohemica has been found in Quinault so it probably occurs in your area too.

    Sweet I will have to to some research and I belive I was thinking on conocybe that has quite a few it's so exciting with all the new discoveries. Got any tips on learn the art of microscopy and what things to look for and learn I have a pretty decent scope and so far I just look through it and see things I'd want on my wall but I don't really know what is is I'm looking at. I would just like to learn the art a little better and help the community
