Looks to me like semi ob. I have found plenty of subs that look ALOT like semis but that looks like the real deal imo. Nice find man :)

Yeah I'd very confident man, I used to pick thousands of em in wales back in the day and they look identical to those, I have some photo's..old school on paper...that i'll try and retake via my canon and put them up for comparison.

what to do now that you found em is the question as they are particularly difficult to cultivate by hand...think.gif

:worship: Now that is impressive, even the field shots look pretty damn 'classic' for ID.

Should print them and get em under the scope to confirm and for fun.

Got any vague idea on altitude found at?

Really cool man, thanks for that.

Wow. That is cool. Never ever seen these before. I agree, you should provide a report for FungiMap. They have an observation record sheet you can download.

this one has quite a brown stem as does one in the first lot of pictures. from what i can see the younger ones have white stems.

these were found on a cattle farm, one of the back grazing paddocks in the shade facing south, about 400 - 450 ft above sea level altitude, lots of dew - like really wet dew.

they have that awesome stickyness on the cap that subs have, and the stems are quite fibrous in the same way, so they certainly feel like psilocybe sp. to hold.

they dry out really quick tho.

I am taking a print for further identification purposes.

Cheers, Ob.

This thread makes me oh-so-happy. :worship:

Love your work.

[edit] Obtuse, can you wrap the stem around your pinkie? Apparently that's another indicator (not that I'm unconvinced).

Absolutely stunning. Textbook specimens. If they are not P. semilanceata, I'll eat my favourite hat. As a matter of fact, I'd eat a stack of hats.

So, did you send away away gill samples for further identification, or make any herbarium deposits? If these are indeed P. semilanceata, which they do appear to be, it's a pretty important find.

Were any bioassayed?

I always felt this thread should have been in the main mycology forum so peeps wouldn't miss it.

Perhaps it can be moved over for greater awareness along with some hint of semi's in the thread title.

As you say "it's a pretty important find" and awesome.

This is a fantastic thread!! The field photo's links and supporting photo's are so good

I feel reasonably confident I could identify this if found on a hike.

But of course I'd post here to be sure.

Thanks Ob
