Who: auweia

No specimen available

This is a special observation regarding psilocybe cyanescens and p cyanofriscosa.

This patch in Richmond normally is p cyanescens, however, one part of it during one year had unmistakable p cyanofriscosa characteristics

this type of mixing happens maybe 1% of the time in the wild

also, it’s impossible to prove, but I know of one spot that was all friscosas for around 5 years, then they dumped more chips on it, and now it’s cyanescens as of last December

it’s very difficult to get cyanescens and friscosa in one shot. It’s true they usually like to keep to themselves. But they are closely associated nonetheless, and sometimes grow around the perimeter of each other, just out of range of a single photo

lol – you’re right

I’ll have to go back through my photo archives on disc to find the actual date, but my best guess right now was December of 2007

btw, I have some more examples. I just have to take the time and go through thousands of photos to find it

Please edit this observation and put in the correct date. I know you didn’t find these on 5/24.
