    Fishing out in philadelphia in pennypack park and stumbled upon these. Did some research and they appear to be psilocybe ovoideocystidiata and they are everywhere in this one hardwood chip lathe area. Please some help. Sorry for the noobishness. 20170426_193554.jpg 20170426_193519.jpg 20170426_193509.jpg 20170426_193343.jpg 20170426_193513.jpg 20170426_193412.jpg

    I didn't see any ovoids in your pics, all I saw were Agrocybe species

    Blueing would have been the dead giveaway here. Never jump the gun when it comes to fungi.

    Ok so basically if there's blue on one of the. I the patch then that's a dead giveaway? I'm actually going to go "hunting" today in my fishing time. Lol. New to all this until yesterday. Never knew I could find hallucegenic shrooms in my back yard. I live in philadelphia pa. In front of a wooded area named pennypack park. Any help figuring out if this is really a possibility for me would be much appreciated. Tha ks for all the help also. I checked out that link @nomendubium but most of it is very confusing for me. Also from what I read so far this is prime time to find. We get alot of rain in April. Actually more than normally this year. Where are some common areas of dining these species?

    low lying areas where creeks and rivers flood the banks. Along creeks and rivers. Bluing makes it easier. The gills are Mottled inaequihymeniiferous (technical word for mottled gills) the gills have white edges. They smell a lot like cat piss. mottled gills.jpg

    So it's completely within the realm of possibility. Nice!!! Theres something about finding your shrooms that seems like it would make it a great experience.

    Now I say those ones are ovoids. Am I wrong?

    Give the edge of the cap a pinch, should bruise under a minute. Blueish greenish. Thats a good positive for ovoids but i strongly suggest doing your homework. Joining this forum was a good step in your journey. I'm new to this one but am on others and also just started hunting this year. In the same patch of ovoids a lookalike is often present. Do your homework cause the lookalike can kill you.

    Look like ovid to me, got that ghost of Azurescens vibe and the beautiful variagated gill patterns, i bet they bruise blue to black if handled heavy, plus habitat
