Wink Considering how meny...

Considering how many different varieties of psilocybe their are in the wild your chances are pretty high;

Conocybe cyanopus • Conocybe smithii • Gymnopilus aeruginosus • Gymnopilus liquiritiae • Gymnopilus luteofolius • Gymnopilus purpuratus • Gymnopilus sapineus • Gymnopilus spectabilis • Inocybe aeruginascens • Inocybe corydalina var. corydalina • Inocybe tricolor • Mycena cyanorrhiza • Panaeolina castaneifolia • Panaeolus africanus • Panaeolus bisporus • Panaeolus cambodginiensis • Panaeolus cyanescens • Panaeolus fimicola • Panaeolus olivaceus • Panaeolus papilionaceus var. papilionaceus • Panaeolus sphinctrinus • Panaeolus subbalteatus • Panaeolus tropicalis • Pluteus salicinus • Psilocybe • Psilocybe atlantis • Psilocybe aucklandii • Psilocybe australiana • Psilocybe azurescens • Psilocybe baeocystis • Psilocybe bohemica • Psilocybe caerulipes • Psilocybe cubensis • Psilocybe cyanescens • Psilocybe fimetaria • Psilocybe galindoi • Psilocybe graveolens • Psilocybe guilartensis • Psilocybe mexicana • Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata • Psilocybe quebecensis • Psilocybe semiinconspicua • Psilocybe semilanceata • Psilocybe strictipes • Psilocybe subaeruginascens • Psilocybe subaeruginosa • Psilocybe tampanensis • Psilocybe villarrealiae• Psilocybe weilii• Psilocybe zapotecorum.

Concentrate on area's with grazing land and cattle.. People say finding them growing on cow shit is a myth, but it's not as much of a urban myth as they would think, I found a whole heap of cubensis growing right out of some cow shit last year and they where HUGE! Obviously well nourished on cow poo.Their where miles of fields and miles of shrooms...

Although not all of them where the magical variety they where growing in close proximity to some Amanita virosa... Nice and Deadly!

Bear that in mind before you go putting anything anywhere near your mouth (specially if its growing out of cow shit!), if your not 100% sure what it is, then leave well alone. Last thing you want is your liver and kidneys dissolving just because you where looking for a good time.

I'm going back that way this year not in the US though but I'll get some photo's and upload em with measurements, going to erm, pick some for further enhanced analysis and some microscopy, who am I kidding I'm going to get high LOL Dry em, powder em and store em and another method I've heard about is putting them into honey! As honey is a natural antiseptic it helps ward off moldy woes later on if your thinking of long term storage!

It's just a little awkward explaining that one to a guest who helps themselves to your honey jar "NOoooo!, that's not normal honey!!"

Also check the laws in your state, pick and cultivating could land you with a fine if caught and putting them in your mouth can be more trouble than its worth! Especially if you make a mistake and spend the next 24 hours having your guts pumped out with salty water... Downer!

the audobon society has a good feild guide, but "mushrooms demystified" by David Aurora is a great dichotomous key, and it reads like a book, not a key.

Well, what is the secret of the many changing mask as used by the Chinese or Taiwanese during their magic trick? I mean, Iíve seen them change the mask many times in super speed without even having to cover their mask. I want to know how they do it. What is the actual secret in this? Can you answer me? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Psilocybin mushrooms possess psychedelic properties. They are commonly known as "magic mushrooms" or "shrooms", and are available in smart shops in many parts of the world, though some countries have outlawed their sale. A number of other mushrooms are eaten for their psychoactive effects, such as fly agaric, which is used for shamanic purposes by tribes in northeast Siberia. They have also been used in the West to potentiate, or increase, religious experiences. Because of their psychoactive properties, some mushrooms have played a role in native medicine, where they have been used to affect mental and physical healing, and to facilitate visionary states. One such ritual is the Velada ceremony. A representative figure of traditional mushroom use is the shaman and curandera (priest-healer) María Sabina. Medicinal mushrooms Currently, many species of mushrooms and fungi utilized as folk medicines for thousands of years are under intense study by ethnobotanists and medical researchers. Maitake, shiitake, and reishi are prominent among those being researched for their potential anti-cancer, anti-viral, and/or immunity-enhancement properties. Psilocybin, originally an extract of certain psychedelic mushrooms, is being studied for its ability to help people suffering from mental disease, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Minute amounts have been reported to stop cluster and migraine headache

Psilocybin mushrooms (also called psilocybian mushrooms) are fungi that contain the psychedelic substances psilocybin and psilocin, and occasionally other psychoactive tryptamines. There are multiple colloquial terms for psilocybin mushrooms, the most common being magic mushrooms or 'shrooms. And Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe cubensis belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. The mushroom's cap is reddish-cinnamon brown to golden brown in color with white to yellowish stipe and will turn bluish/greenish when bruised.
