P. Subaeruginosa in QLD

Recommended Posts

A friend came back from a hike in Tambourine and asked me to ID a group of mushrooms he had picked, all blueing on the stalks.

 

Prints and my own experience identified P. Subaeruginosa which until now, I had only found growing on similar adventures in Oberon and near wollongong in NSW.

 

I did not expect to find them in qld  which is where I have relocated from Bathurst (a close point if reference for subs this time of year).

 

These are easily my favourite Psilocybe, and I am wondering if anyone from South East QLD has discovered these or any other actives during these cooler months as psilocybes are a large part of my personal and spiritual practice and due to the nature of my recent move I have much less available than usual.

 

Thank you

Hey RC, hope you've been well brother.

 

PsillySimon it's great to hear someone talking about south east QLD subs again. I have not been hunting in down that way for at least 4 years now but when I lived there I had found two fairly reliable patches where I could find subs in the colder months. They were up in the mountains where the night time temperature would fall below 10 degrees. I hope you keep finding these treasures, please keeps us updated on your adventures..

 

Ps.. I love photos........

People always want proof of seQLD subs lol..

 

Cheers Jox..

That is interesting Psilly Simon,  to hear maybe all the rain caused them to fruit as it has been relatively mild with the rain about, but that is great to hear

 

Jox, i guess because they are more rare than our cubes

Hey Macca, hope you've been going well. The reason that I asked to see photos is because they are a very rare treasure to find in QLD. Actually the more I've thought about the opening post the more I doubt that they would be subs, for one I don't think that the minimum temperatures would have been getting low enough yet and the other thing is that I spent many winters searching those mountains and never came across true wild (in the bush) patches of subs. Now I can say that I did find and identify a couple of little patches of subs on those mountains but they were in man made parks and gardens. To this day I still question whether you can find endemic subs in QLD or if the handful of subs that have ever been found and positively identified have been introduced. 

 

Cheers Jox..
