I am very curious if The Netherlands is represented in this mycocommunity :D

I would love to know if there are any things happening here in the dutch community of mycophiles like 'lessons, courses, get together, swaps and the sorts :)

Love from The Netherlands!!

We used to have a few members from NL.

I once toured your entire country by bicycle in '09. 

Maybe on the next trip..........

Welcome. I had articles on three shroom farms in the Nederlands and lectured at the Psychoactivity 98 Coonference at the Tropen Museum, and at the Kokopelli Smart Shop as well.  I know Arno adelars and also Hans van den Hurk.  Herei is an image of me and Albert Hofmann from a Euro journal on mushrooms, BMS in three languages.


Two images from Tropen Museum of me in 1998.  





Then here are images from Fresh Mushrooms of Tiel which later became Magic Truffles.  I came here in 2005 as the guest of Hans Grootewald and stayed in Tiel in a Chelet as their guest for three days.


Two images posted in these next images were me from different days in 2005.


ME checking out the cubes. Photo of me by a friend.



Another image from a 2nd day of photo shooting. By a friend of me.



A milk container of fesh cubes ready to package.



A close up of some Panaeolus subbalteatus   



Panaeolus subbalteatus.  One of six tiers in this cell which was one of 10 cells in the grow building on their farm in Tiel.



I am experiencing several image viewing due to a mistake I made Saturday. I accidentally copied my Pictures folder from the left side of the Windows screen from the quick access listings to the desktop.  That makes three copies of that folder and the folder containes over 180,000 photos in over 7000 folders.  When I attempted to delete theone on the desk top, a folder page at a time, it also deleted the images in the other two picture folders in My PC and in the Quick Access, So when I open one, it does not open to view the images and I am so stupid I will have to have the computer taken to repair at the UW Lab to get it fixed.  


A real pain so I am not able to post the 2007 visit to Pro-Care in Hazerwoude-Dorp, Nederland.  They are now Truffle Magic and both them and Magic Truffles sell sclerotia, grow kits and spores.  Seems the Dutch Parliament forgot to make those illegal when they passed the Ban in 2 Dexember of 2008.  I also learned that the law law banning the fresh shrooms listof species was taken from my 100 page paper with Guzman and Gartz which listed 186 species of psilocybian fungi. The Dutch Parliament also included 9 edible mushrooms as illegal also by mistake due to their stupidity, they were not mycologist.


So I couldn not see the images from Pro-Care that I wanted to post.

My article on the Dutch Shrooms from the Canadian Magazine, HEADS is posted here somewhere. I am sure a  mod member can find it and  share it with you.

Hey what's up :)


i'm from the NL and an aspiring mycologist of sorts - i did chemistry not biology but i chose fungi to devote my life and work to. A big project hopefully continued after covid, is about gourmet growing in an art institute. Not active in the academic side, I do have some independent research projects of my own here that are about applied mycology but not necessarily about Dutch species. I am pretty interested in Hypomyces.


i spoke with my friend about it and Psilocybes seem like kind of just another LBM that don't garner a lot of attention, and it would be nice to have some excursions in order to look for the species we supposedly have here. I don't really have the time and energy right now to say I wanna do a study on the genus.. but it's something I keep in mind and I do speak with other people about it to see how much interest there is in working together on that.
The point is: maybe we shouldn't be to quick to say what does and does not occur in the NL regarding Psilo species if it is such an understudied topic, it warps observation documenting sites and everything else. There are tons of mushrooms in obscurity like that because unfortunately there are WAY too few mycologists <3

Am currently not (yet) all that active here but if ppl do find suspected Psilocybes in the NL i would like to offer for example doing microscopy on samples if you cannot do it yourself. :)
