EGA's Psilocybe subaeruginosa Reference Guide

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Nice work obtuse and EGA team! 


Friend of EGA, fungi educator, and psychedelic mushroom expert Caine Barlow has been generous enough to help us develop this unique resource reviewing the current literature and community knowledge around P. subaeruginosa. The reference guide includes species and habitat descriptions, history, pharmacology, poisonous lookalikes and other safety and legal issues. Caine has also helped us include a fantastic list of related resources, making it easy for the mycologically minded to get up to speed on the current research, and for Australian fungi foragers to choose the guidebook most suited to their needs. The guide is very visual and includes images by EGA community including Tannar Coolhaas, Beau Meister, Konan Farrelly-Horsfall, and EGA's Jonathan Carmichael.
 

Caine is also responsible for this fantastic presentation that gives a much broader overview of Australian Psilocybe species and their lookalikes.
 

If you find this resource helpful, please support EGA so we can make more!


You can download the PDF via this webpage.

Title - A brief overview of Australian Psilocybe and active allied species

 

This short talk, by fungi educator Caine Barlow, briefly describes the four main species of Psilocybe found in Australia and New Zealand, including one main Psilocybe ally. Many fungi have lookalike species that can be easily confused. Knowing the features, expected habitats, and potential lookalikes can help reduce the risks of potentially picking the wrong species.

 

Bio - Caine Barlow

 

Caine Barlow is a Mycologist and Fungi Educator based in Melbourne, Australia. He gives regular talks on mycology, fungi conservation, and teaches gourmet mushroom cultivation. He is a member of the Australian organisations Entheogenesis Australis, MYCOmmunity Applied Mycology, The Australian Psychedelic Society, and the Entheome Foundation.

 

Caine started foraging for mushrooms in the early 1990's, and started cultivating gournet fungi in the mid 2000's. He did his Bachelor of Science at the University of Tasmania, and a Master of Science at the University of Melbourne where his research project was based around Conservation Mycology.

 

In addition to fungi, Caine has had a long term interest in ethnobotany, ethnobotanical literature, and growing medicinal plants - in particular Cacti and Acacias. He writes for DoubleBlind and ThirdWave, is a “Trusted Identifier” on The Shroomery, and a moderator on many Facebook fungi groups. Caine posts regularly on his Instagram, @guerrillamycology, sharing adventures from cultivation, foraging, and ethnomycology, to interesting observations from his home lab.

Great resource. I think I must've walked past dozens of P. alutacea, looking only for subs. Doh!
