Beautiful, those are exactly what you wanna pick in central florida. I was just wondering if anyone knows what this strain is called if it is called anything. Also, does anybody know of any other psilocybe containing shrooms in central florida. I know theres more, I'm just a poon about treading untested grounds.

you bet your sweet ass theres more psilys in florida!

Blue meanies -- here are some young ones -->



yeah baby give me more mycoporno.



Okay, now that the fun stuff is out of the way here's the info you've been looking for

The Blue Meanies of southwest Florida.


The photograph pictured above is of several small Blue Meanies in the early stage of growth.
(These small mushrooms are sometimes just as potent, if not more potent than mature ones.)

Copelandia cyanescens also known as Panaeolus cyanescens, and nicknamed "copes" or "Blue Meanies", are one of the most potent psychoactive mushroom species in the world. In weight comparison, their psychoactivity towers 2-to-3 times over that of the Psilocybe cubensis (Golden Teacher).

Pictured above are
Copelandia cyanescens (Blue Meanies).
All blue meanies stain blue.


Distribution:
Grow wild in the states of Florida, Louisiana, Texas and southern portions of Missippii & Alabama.
the islands of Hawaii also.


_+~` Tips for Indentifying Copelandia`~+_

Identification of the Copelandia species can be a trick to learn at first. The number one rule to follow when identifying a "cope" is as follows;


If it stains Blue, then it is True.


Every blue meanie stains a very noticeable blue, hence the name Blue Meanies. The cap and also the stem will show signs of bluing within 1-10 minutes of picking (sometimes longer), or they may have already begun to blue before you got to them. Several hours after picking them, they may (if not handled with extreme care) turn black in color. This is ok, they still contain much of the psychoactive chemicals inside of them, but it is best to be very very gentle when handleing and drying these mushrooms.


The second thing to do when identifying a cope, is to take a spore print. The color of a Copelandia's spore print is Jet Black.


They are almost always found growing directly from solid 1-to-2 month old aged chunks of manure. Rarely are they found growing from just manure enriched soil..


They grow in rather large groupings on each single cow patty. Anywhere from 1 to 50 on a single cow pie is not uncommon. Though, there have been reports of up to 200+ copes fruiting from single piles of manure.


Also please always remember to never eat a mushroom unless you are over 100% positive of its correct identification..

Habitat:
Growing scattered to gregariously in cow pasture/fields. 100-200 mushrooms have been reported to grow off of one clump of manure.

Dosage Recommendations:
These mushrooms are listed as Moderately Potent. Still, do not let their small size fool you, these mushrooms can be Very Potent. Fresh mushroom dosage: 12 (One dozen) fresh mushrooms. Dried mushroom dosage: 1 single gram of dried mushroom.


Caps:
Light brown as baby, becoming almost all white with age, sometimes with a orangish/brown center.
Most caps display a crackled effect with maturity.
Flesh of caps readily stain blue.


Gills:
Grayish/brown when little,
Grayish/black when mature.

Stems:
Pale Yellow overall, becoming light brown towards the base of stem. Readily bruiseing blue. Stems speckled with small white/gray flecks. No veil present.

Notice the blue staining on the caps and stems of each mushroom. Also take note of the color and appearance of the gills. The above are older than the pics at the top.

-- thank ggreatone for all the wonderful information above.

in west central florida cubes are often called "suntops" for the golden brown sunburst on mature caps. i always called blue meanies "cyans" but i kinda like the sound of "copes". when i first started shrooming i would avoid these because they didnt have a purple ring and at the time i thought there was only one type of shroom(the 70's). i must haved kicked hundreds of them in pastures...little did i know...

Thanks Billy, I always thought those were blue foots. Ive also ran into a couple other mushrooms while scouring pasutres.

One looks very much like those cyans in the young state. The stem is always straight. Gills usually white or kinda grey. And the cap is waxy, i guess you'd say, but it's always moist. Theyre very prolific and grow in groups of 4 or more. I think i identified them as Panaeolus Antillarum. Do you have any other information about these biatches?

The other im curious about is even more social. They are brown in color from sprouting(?) into maturity. Their stem is always straight, and very thin compared to the above and cubies. I think their gills are brown. Theyve got an obtusely conic cap. The caps never usually get bigger than a quater. And they like to grow in big groups of about 10 or more. Im sure im wrong, but they kinda look like Psilocybe Pelliculosa. But the stems arent as scaley looking and theyre never bent.

Both of these shrooms like to grow directly out of cow dung. They both seem to grow at anytime the substrate is wet. They arent anywhere as picky as cubies.

Thanks for all your help.

You could also visit east texas and find a nice shady area under some pine trees. They are all over the place.

The panhandle ..for example around Lubbock is a good place to look. West Texas is too dry and hot for the most part.

If I recall the road signs say something like "Don't Mess with Texas" (actually a litter warning)

I'll check it out next time I go down that away.

If you don't get shot by some old lady in Florida then check out Smith and Rusk county in Texas. It's amazing how many people think "Don't mess with Texas" is the state motto.

I'm pretty sure thats "Bull Hockey". "Bull Honkey" is that bailiff on Night Court.

Gulliver --

I grew up in Alacua county, watch out for white herst, he'll bite ya good for walking on his land.

I must add - Blue meanies are all over florida. I found them my first time ever out in a feild in Alachua/Marion/Levy county..

Ovedo and other countys in florida are good to go for cubes/blue meanies..

Sub humid tropical climents seem to be best for these magical fruits.

They're all over the place in Florida basicly.
