Wereworm, thanks for that info, I have never heard of beta-carboline alkaloids being found in corts, or for that matter, any fungi at all, although beta-carbolines generally aren't very psychedelic per se, but many act as monoamine oxidase inhibitors, inhibiting breakdown of tryptamines, from say, Psilocybe/Gymnopilus/Pluteus etc. or Amanita Citrina, although bufotenine is hardly somethine I would wish to experience in an uncontrollable, oral dose, let alone potentiated by a b-carboline, as its fairly toxic, increasingly so orally, and in my experience with it (as freebase) acted as a fairly potent vasopressor.
Heh, come june-july, I'l be out on the meadows again, as Psilocybe Semilanceata start popping up over in the UK about then, and the fly agarics not long after, although they really are the worst thing in the world to dry, I've had A.muscaria refuse to dry after a weeks storage over P2O5, obstinate little buggers
And yeah, apparently a lot of people have died from mistaking C.Speciosissimus for chanterelles, I don't understand how someone could make some of the mistakes they do, mistaking white amatoxin containing Amanita species like A.Virosa, A.Verna and A.Phalloides var. Alba for edible Calocybe/tricholoma species, it happens, seemingly, then again, some people are born to take themselves out of the gene pool
