P. Tampanensis short+quick update
    #3049416 - 08/25/04 06:53 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi!! How's everyone doing??? The last we heard on the Tampanensis investigation/shroom busters case, we were trying to find out the exact location of where the lone speciman was found. I got a response from Stephen Peele at FMRC. He said Bradenton was the location (I dont'know how accurate that is??). But Paul Stamets wrote me back and sent a CC of the email to Gary Lincoff who was with Pollock at the find and tells me that Lincoff has a picture of Pollock climbing the fence at the spot. So I'm sure Lincoff may have addtional information.

Will Update You guys soon once I hear back from Lincoff.


peace + love

I see that both of the posters in this thread are still active members so I don't mind bumping this.
I am incredibly interested in this subject. Did you guys ever find anything else out?


One day, God created LSD through the intercession of blessed Albert Hoffman. This powerful sacrament then went on to enlighten mankind, even the president of america. This ushered in an age of spiritual unity and peace. This allowed for mankind to reach it's full potential including immortality and intergalactic exploration and habitation. Thanks, God.

Florida specimen: SE of Brandon, Florida, Sept. 1977.

Guzmán, G. & Pollock, S.H. A new blueing species of Psilocybe from Florida, USA. Mycotaxon 7: 373, 1978

Guzmán, G., 1983 The genus Psilocybe. says SE of Brendon, Florida


Mississippi specimen:

Excerpt from Guzman, G. 1996. Observations on some fungi from Louisiana and Mississippi in comparison with those of Mexico.


Psilocybe tampanensis was known previously only from the type locality: SE of Badon (sic), near Tampa, Florida, and is based on one specimen (Guzman and Pollock, 1978; Guzman, 1983).  The Mississippi material, also one specimen, was collected in a meadow of sandy soil, a habitat similar to that of the type collection.  However, the Mississippi specimen has a conic-subumbonate pileus versus a convex and slightly umbilicate pileus in the type, a feature not considered significant enough to separare the Mississippi specimen into another species.  More specimens are needed from the two localities to properly evaluate this feature.  Spores from the Mississippi material are 9.5-10.5 (-11) x 6.5-7 (-8) x 6-6.5 (-9) um, and are subrhombic and thick-walled.  The pleurocystidia are rare, 12-16 (-17.5) x (5-) 5.5-6.5 (-9) um, vesiculose-acuminate or lageniform, and cheilocystidia are (14.5-) 16-25.5 (-32) x 4-6.5 (-7) um and lageniform.

Locality; Old River Wild Life Management Area, Pearl River County, Mississippi.  Subdeciduous forest with meadows. June 1995.
