Observation 44739: Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata Guzmán & Gaines

When: 2010-04-24

Collection location: Harford Co., Maryland, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Audubon lists P. caerulipes as a late summer/fall mushroom. I think these may be P. ovoideocystidiata. Found what is likely the same species last May, in PA (posted here). Each time a few of these decayed wood inhabitors showed a ring on the stalk, apparently fleeting. Found this current fruting in a hardwood forest of mainly Tulip Poplar, White Ash, oaks, and a few other deciduous trees. The stalk bases have white mycelial threads attached.
