When: 2008-06-10
Collection location: Georgia, USA [Click for map]
Who: T.A.K (T.A.K)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Im not sure about this one i think it might be Psilocybe galindii but am unsure. These were found in fescue grass on the edge of the wood line. The habitat had been disturbed within the last 7 years. I was told that this could be one of the unknown psilocybes from GA. Intense oxidation only at the base of the stipe, translucent striated cap margin, hygrophanous caps. Im currently having this specimen looked at by a mycologist. Im unsure if i spelled the name correct so hang with me im sorry as i am unsure about this species. Purple/brown spore-print stipes on these are incredibly long, longest ive seen for a psilocybe.

Summary: Why P. atlantis?

The cheilocystidia doesn’t look like a good match for that species.

Summary: P. galindoi

The mushroom was named in honor of Mr. Carlos Galindo Arias, a family friend of Dr. Gastón Guzmán‎, who collected specimens for him.

Summary: Name?

What would be the correct name for this mushrooms?

Is it Psilocybe galindoi or Psilocybe galindii?

Summary: Georgia boy…

I highly doubt that you found this species, they do not grow in such great numbers as you say.

I agree with CureCat.

Reason for this is that Ps. galindoi do not resemble Pan. foes at all.

Summary: Pics or it didn’t happen

Sounds like you might be finding Panaeolus cinctulus, rather than this species.

Summary: possible locations of suspected P. Galindoi

I’ve found specimens which i strongly think are this species in Augusta, Ga. and N. Augusta S.C. They do show a bluish oxidation of the indole alkaloids which is perceptible against the “tan/gray” background of the mushroom’s flesh.

Summary: have found this species

i have found this species many times. previously i thought it was panaeolus foensici

first i found it growing near the base of shin/knee high clumps of old well (naturally) mulched grass. I thought this amount of thatch/mulch may be an important part of its habitat. but since then i have found it growing in park situations. In fact it grows in pound quantities on the campus of Augusta State University, in the “quadrangle” during spring and summer.

Summary: galindoi/galindii

Summary: Curecat is right

Yes these would be very hard to kick over since the stipes are so flimsy. I think you probably found one of the many lawn dwelling species of mushroom…Pan. subbs, Pan. foes, conocybe lactea, etc.

Summary: .

Chaos, why do you think that what you have been kicking is the same as this mushroom here?

If they were, I can’t imagine you could “kick” them very well. More like step on them perhaps?

Summary: Agreed

They are really familiar to me and I only found it in one place in fescue and I always would look and kick em down. I could most definately be mistaken though, I am no Mycologist. Those are great specimens.

Summary: chaos(choaking victim)

The only way to know for sure if what you were kicking over were these would be microscopy since this is a very rare psilocybe its more possible that it was something else. Im not saying your wrong im just saying these are rare, they have only been collected a by a couple of people in GA.

Summary: Really?

I have been kicking those out of my way for about three years, now, and it is psilocybe? I feel stupid.

Summary: Microscopy

These specimens were sent to a mycologist and have indeed been identified as Psilocybe galindii.
