-This is not so much a question but another request for information about the mushroom Psilocybe pseudobullacea?
-What exactly is sugarcane bagasse??
-It says that Psilocybe tampanesis was discovered in Bradon, Florida. --Everywhere else i have read this is spelled Brandon with an 'n' ---I will check on the map to see if it is actually a town near tampa or if that is a misprint..?
-It says in Mexico they use lichens as ecological indicators for climax conditions, --Any more references about this??
!. Although Guzm?n placed an asterisk next to the name P. pseudobullacea in the list, he later, in the paper says that 'the fungus does not show a bluing reaction, and consequently it does not have hallucinogenic properties.
This is evident form the original collections of this pecies found in eastern Africa, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), New Guinea, Ecuador Venezuela and Mexico. All of those specimens collected in those countries also exhibited no bluing when damaged. Also, only one of the Louisiana collections came from sugarcane bagasse. The rest were found on manure haps
2. Sugarcane bagasse is the fibrous residue which remains after the production of cane sugar. It is typically burned at the sugar mill for fuel. It is the same habitat for P. caerulescens along sugar cane fields in Oaxaca.
3. Brandon, Florida. Guzman has an English problem in his papers and books. The Genus Psilocybe has over two hundred or more typos in it from bad English
Have no idea on lichen since i do not study that family.
