Observation 119304: Psilocybe allenii Borov., Rockefeller & P.G. Werner

When: 2012-12-07

Collection location: San Ramon, California, USA [Click for map]


Who: FunGuyRod

No specimen available

Small patch of approx. one dozen growing on wood-chips/mulch, in between public walkway and street, partially hidden amidst a short thicket type shrub commonly used in public landscaping in the area. Shade trees in the area include live oak, valley oak and redwood. A classic P.“cyanofriscosa” if I’ve ever seen one. These are quite thick and meaty (compared to P.cyanescens). This “species” seems pretty rare in the East Bay area compared to more western parts of the SF bay area. I think they are most common in the wood-chip landscaping areas around freeway on-ramps, which unfortunately are mostly inaccessible.
