when I first heard the term. These are only for the dedicated enthusiast because I hear it takes about a couple hundred shrooms for a good “trip”.

Plenty of people have bio-assayed them… no need for me to try it…

Thanks Christian,

John kept telling Noah that he’d eat one in the name of science if Noah ate one. Noah refused, so progress has been stalled (thankfully).

but did you eat them? ;)

just kidding. they are apparently psychoactive, altho eating a Conocybe sp. gives me the shudders…unless you like trips…to the morgue!

nice find, Christian, and very nice photo.

we look forward to seeing the microscopy on these.

Grass, regularly mowed. No trees around. Lawn one year old or so. PS – this is Christian… not CureCat.

Any other info on the habitat? Under trees? Wood chips, dung or moss under the grass? Were they in a ditch or low lying area? Was the area boggy at all? Thanks.
