I just did a google search for the entheogenic properties of this fungus and couldn't find any reference, I did find out that P. salicinus contains psilocybin and psilocin which was completely unexpected for me! It should make for some good photos if the stem will turn blue!

Hmm well it was worth a try lol Good luck finding the correct one :) The tricky thing about taxonomy is they all look alike at times hehe :)

Hi celestialprincess101 Thanks for the suggestion. It seems a good genus to check through. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, that species is not known in Australia. Good similarity though so the genus might offer up something.
