I agree with CC, these comments are useful and asking for hookups is rude.

Also if these were found near but not on cow dung then rain probably washed some of the dung into the soil nearby, I have seen this happen with many dung loving mushrooms.

I don’t think it is necessary to delete these comments, they serve as an example.

I think that asking for psilocybin mushrooms on this site when your obvious intent is to ingest them is completely out of line.

eating psilocybin mushrooms has just as much to do with mycology as everything else involved, im not saying that I eat them, just saying maybe do some more research on the subject.

there is tons of history involving eating mushrooms from this genus and all of it is important to mycology, maybe start with Maria sabina and R. Gordon wasson.

After each species name, additional names are referenced to the mycologists responsible for the particular nomenclature.

Earle refers to Franklin Sumner Earle.

Singer refers to Rolf Singer.

Earle Singer?

Please only post if you are serious about mycology!

Dude! Send me some shrooms!
