Psilocybe Cyanofibrillosa was first documented in 1995 and placed into the Stirps Cyanescens.
This species is autumnal and lignicolous, living in soils enriched with deciduous wood debris -
characteristic of riparian woodlands of the coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest of North America.
Strongly bruising bluish to indigo-black, this Psilocybe species features a hazelnut to caramel-colored pileus
and a stipe whose base radiates clusters of white rhizomorphs. This novel species is delineated through a combination of
morphological and microscopic features and possesses unusually high concentrations of psilocybin, psilocin and baeocystin.

It's worth the trip, but go in the Fall so you can hunt for Cyans.
(They're not hard to find) :-)
http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/parkspaces/park list.htm

Cyanescens and Cyanofibrillosa are fairly easy to cultivate just about anywhere,
if the temp drops into the 50's at nite, you can pull off some nice outdoor patches. Here's some good advice by O.T

If you want to see fruits I have found the following to be practical....

Grow the Cyan spawn in PF jars just as you would for cubensis... Once the jars are colonized, grind them and use as inoculant for sterile jars of Alder chips.... I use 1 gallon jars... Soak your chips overnight in a bowl of water, drain and place in jars... Pressure cook the chips for about 45 minutes at 15 psi... When cool place about a tablespoon or so of ground PF cake powder in each jar and shake well.... Leave in a semi-dark area at 60-70 degrees until the chips are fully grown over.
At this point open the jars, dump the inoculated wood chips into a large bowl and place in a flower bed around your abode (preferably one that has landscaping bark in it) cover with a 1 inch layer of soil/bark and leave alone... If you plant a solid bed of spawn you will be sure to see a nice flush once winter temps set in.

Another good technique is to spread hard wood spawn around local parks and Gov't. facilities. You can just show up to water and harvest with little risk.

Strangeland
I have seen many grows you have done and I have noticed that you use coffee with cubensis. Would coffee help any with the outdoor cyan patches? I have already noticed what it does for cubensis on grain I have yet to add coffee to a substrate like poo and straw.

Coffee isn't really needed with Cyanescens.
They require different conditions for fruiting.

Habit & Habitat: Cespitose to gregarious on deciduous wood-chips and/or in sandy soils rich in lignicolous debris. Aspect collyboid, generating an extensive, dense and tenacious mycelial mat, Cyanescens causes the whitening of wood.

Fruitings begin in late September and continue until harsh frost, usually in December. In spring the patches can be extended with fresh
wood-material, and fruitification can continue for several years.

Some suitable tree species:
beech, oak, birch, chestnut, alder, maple, cottonwood, willow, aspen, poplar,
elm , spruce, douglas fir, sweet gum, sycamore ...

as Stamets says - wood chips and other lignious substrates are very selective and RARELY contaminate. Therefore pasteurization can be adequate -
but sterilization can be fine as well.

"You can grow Ps. cyanescens mycellium on normal pftek substrate of brf and verm. It grows slower than cubensis but then you can transfer it onto cardboard which it will take to quite nicely and then move it onto wood chips. Best to have a pile in the spring and let colonize over summer. Alder preferably. Nature will do the rest in the fall."

Cyanofibrillosa are quite common in Oregon, Washington State and California.
The first picture is from the San Francisco Bay area this Fall season...so they are spreading out. Oregon is a very shroomy state, you should also find P Cyanescens and Azurescens in the fall.

As far as I know, no one has successfully fruited Cyanofibrillosa indoors.

However, I've recently met a grower who has isolated a substrain of P. Cyanescens which performs consistently indoors. By following the same strain isolation procedure setup for Cubensis, one can isolate a Cyanescens substrain which is adapted to an indoor enviromenment.

Interestingly...
Under the same indoor conditions which the Cyans fruited, Azurescens would not form a decent pinset. The fruits that did form grew only along the edge of the casing and they were somewhat mutated. Azures are probably the most stubborn of the wood loving psilocybes.

As far as potency goes, Cyanofibs are close to Cyanescens when fresh, but Fibs are known to lose some of their magic once they dry, for this reason most farmers choose to work with P Cyanescens.

These Cyanofibs were collected recently by a California Hunter.

Are there any other mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest that look very similar to Psilocybe Cyanofibrillosa?

Just want to make sure there isn't a poisonous species that might be mistaken for Cyanofibrillosa.

If you're out hunting for Cyans...
Please be aware of the Deadly Galerina.
They both share the same habitat.

As a general rule, when hunting for psilocybes,
always look for a blueing reaction- or bruising,
and a dark purple spore print.

Deadly Galerina:

Spore print: rusty brown.

Habitat: Scattered on well decayed wood.

Edibility: Deadly poisonous!!!
Contains alpha-amanitins in sufficient quantities to cause death.

Comments:
Galerina autumnalis and its close relatives Galerina marginata and Galerina venenata
have been mistaken in the past with representatives of the genus Psilocybe.
This has resulted in several poisonings and at least one death.
