I went out on Memorial day and found mushrooms but only one w/ black spores. 
(panaeolus papilionaceus)  Which is said to be an indicator, but thats it. 
Everything turned out to have brown prints.

BTW if anyone has hunting tips I would like to hear them.

Panaeolus subbalteatus in Southern Illinois

Unfortuantly the field I used to shroom in no longer contains
livestock. Electric fences and sneaking around don't exite me so
I've switched to searching rotting haystacks(which has so far yielded
nada). I have found P.Foeniscii in small groups in my backyard about
three feet from a small tree that was well mulched in the grass.
About 3 weeks ago there were numerous specimans, today there were about
two or three mushrooms. I havn't tried using them, I just happened to
notice them. I live in southern Illinois, any advice about when to
search the haystacks for subbalteatus would be appreciated, I havn't
searched for wild shrooms in years until this year and the only time I
found them here I cannot remmeber the time of year(and that group was
small anyways, Id like to find a large fruiting).

Panaeolus subbalteatus in Southwest Virginia

In Southwest Virginia my best luck with subbalteatus
(only psilly shroom I've ever found in wild) has been
the first 2 weeks of June when it has been overcast and
muggy.  I find them in the shady areas that the cows
tend to gather to get out of the sun where they most trample
up the soil.  I boil then to kill dung germs that might
cause mild food poisoning.  I havent found any luck near
the hay stacks, but I guess if the cows similarly disturbed
the soil, they could be there as well.

Abingdon VA is experiencing a major flush of Girdled Panaeolus.
(some are even blueing)

I'm advising preparation in boiling water as a tea to avoid fecal 
bacteria likely from careless collection off dung.

Many come to me to identify their wild mushrooms, and I do what 
I can to keep inexperienced mycophiles from killing themselves
with some of the more deadly LBM's.  I don't have any literature
that estimates the alkaloid content of Panaeolus subbalteatus.

What do you advise on dosage equivilent to 5grams/ 150lbs of 
body weight for Psilocybe cubensis?  i.e., please put maxout 
dosage in commercially grown cubensis equivalents. 

Panaeolus subbalteatus P. campanulatus (and other species) in Maine

To my knowledge there are some known species of entheogenic mushrooms in Maine
- not limited to but including the following: (late summer +, Blue Foot-Ps.
caerulipes)( spring and fall, "Girdled"Panaeolus subbalteatus)( the lesser
Panaeolus foenisecii - lawnmowers mushroom some say it is intermittently
entheogenic innature - may be diminutive subbalteatus) ( fall, Liberty Cap-Ps.
semilanceata) I've heard of some Gymnopilus activity and actually have seen (?)
a type of Gymnopilus while poking around for Oysters on a hike, but that is not
an advisable course as an edible. Also I have seen Ps. atrobrunnea of
exceptional size in southern Maine as to there edibility I cannot advise. I'm
only in it for the science. May Xochipilli bless your search.

I looked for ten years in Maine and found many delicious
specimens. But alas never any magic musherooms.one time I
did find an extremely large bunch of Panaeolus campanulatus
growing around a horse pasture.These are at best mildly
halluciongenic so just the number of them that you would
have to eat would probably make you sick.I did try 1/2/
dozen of them to see and no affect.

 Over the years I also found numerous Amanita muscaria but
never wanted to fool with a mushroom with such a dubious
reputation.

 I'm sure that there are some magic mushrooms that grow in
Maine but I don't think that they are real commom.But don't
stop looking

Psilocybe cubensis in Previously Unreported States

Psilocybe cubensis in:

I assure all that Cubensis DOES grow prolifically north of the US freeze line. 
Have picked grocery sacks full in N. Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee.
What most seem to miss is that mushrooms are alive year round.
They only fruit during certain times of the year. 
Around July 4 and again with a much smaller offering around Halloween
in the areas mentioned above.
Seeing the harvests for twenty years now, I predict the best flushes
ever in the above areas will happen this year.
Long periods of freezing will in general not help shrooms, and I do
agree that it is unlikely to find them in New Jersey.
Cubensis seems to be a Mason-Dixon thing.
Anyone interested should print out all the info they can find,
especially good pictures and get out in the cow pastures before June
15th and be persistent. Six daily walks in the fields and you find
nothing and on the seventh or eighth you can't keep from stepping on em.

Actually, NO you are wrong Mr. Merchant......
Fresh Cubensis mushrooms will be soon popping up all over the
south-east 1/4 of America. Those mushrooms can be used to inoculate
ANY media that would normally be used. 
For years we have kept a steady suppy of grown mushrooms going with
the yearly supply of pasture found Cubensis.
I have found as many as 10 regular paper grocery sacks in a day by
searching only 600 acres of cow pasture.
From Texas to Kansas and East to the East coast, Cubensis will be
popping up in a cow pasture near you soon.
In Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia, it may be right away.
In Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri area the prime time is from June 15 to
July 15.
Using spores and syringes is the LONG HARD way to grow mushrooms.
Starting media with tiny chunks of strong wild Cubensis cuts out the
longest hardest most time consuming part of the process.

Fungi From Sierra Nevada Field Campus Forays
Biology 800; Oct.8-10, 1993; Oct. 13-15, 1995 

 The Sierra Nevada Field Campus of San Francisco State University
 is located on Hwy 49 between Sierra City and Sierraville,
 about 1 mi from Bassett's Station at the foot of the Sierra Buttes.
 Every year in early October we have a mushroom foray to the area.

 Below is a list of the species we typically find each year in early October.
 Comparing this list with the list of taxa from our Spring Fungi of the
 Sierra Nevada course (Biol. 315) you will notice that few
 species occur in the region both during the Spring and Fall.
 For the most part, there are two distinct mycotas represented in the Sierra Nevada...
 a Spring mycota from May through June, and a Fall mycota from late August through November.
