No specimen available

One of four hallucinogenic Inocybe species occurring in Europe.
I found the mushrooms under hazel bushes (Corylus avellana.)
In Europe, hazel ist the preferred host of Inocybe haemacta.
An important characteristic is the smell.
The mushrooms smell exactly like horse urine.

That red color is particular must have an interesting chemical process instigating it.

Sound pretty wild!

From what I have heard most mushrooms that contain psilocybin/psilocin have sexual heightening effects.

Anyways this is an interesting mushroom.

God Bless

There is a guy where I live who eats Inocybe haemacta and Inocybe corydalina.
He claims, that they have not only a hallucinogenic effect, but also have
an aphrodisiacal effect. But I don’t know if that is true. :)

Beautiful, I have not seen these before. I am interested in the fungi that contain psilocybin/psilocin but are not in the genus Psilocybe.
