    With a country as large as China, there must be magic mushrooms growing there. But which?

    I think maz is thinking that since Gymnopilus spectabilis is found in Japan, that it will also be found in China. I wonder if this is a topic that a certain ex-member mycologist/pederast might have some knowledge about?

    AFAIK Hygrocybe conicais (Witch's Hat) not psychoactive.

    That is what you think!

    Have you ever investigated this lil' Mushroom?

    Some claim it to be psychoactive!

    They have cows in China, I'm sure dung-loving Psilocybes of some sort grow there!

      Negative, condescending attitude. This is not what the D-F community is about. You can state your opinions in a better way than this

    Is there any actual evidence that these are psychoactive or just claims?

    I haven't look into that much.

    I just remember that mushroom in connection with China.

    Please provide evidence in this as I know you know a lot about plants and such. I have never heard of this being psychoactive either and am keenly interested in it. From what Red Rock has heard, when ingested, it just causes stomach irritation and has no psychoactive properties to it.

    Hygrocybe Conica (aka hygrophorus conicus) is a common waxy cap
    mushroom. Four deaths were (perhaps mistakenly) connected to this
    shroom in China, in the early 20th century.

    From Mushrooms Demystified, a man Larry Stickney of the Mycological
    Society of San Francisco reported that it "elicited an odd sensation of
    lightheadedness and numbness" upon ingestion. This is the only report of
    any kind regarding any psychoactivity whatsoever with this species that
    I know of, and I have found no evidence to back this claim up.

    This mushroom also will blacken when handled, which could possibly be
    mistaken for the bluing reaction of psilocybin species to many.

    I suspect there are quite a few that grow down in the southwest part of china in the Yunnan province. It is a topical area down there. Hopefully afoaf will be taking a trip there soon in the near future.
