The Description of Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata * 2
    #6807952 - 04/19/07 09:22 AM (17 years, 6 days ago)

This is the paper published from Dr. Guzmán of the same mushroom as Shroomy Dan's alleged P. caerulipes.

The latter is a species separate from P. olivideocystidiata.

I should i like to inform everyone reading this text that one of the authors wrote to me t and asked me to remove the locations provided in the article as to where he found his collections.

New Species of Hallucinogenic Psilocybe (Fr.) P. Kumm.
(Agaricomycetideae) from the Eastern U.S.A.
Gastón Guzmán,1 Richard V. Gaines,2 and Florencia Ramírez-Guillén1

ABSTRACT: Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata is described as a new blueing species from Pennsylvania,
USA. It belongs to section Stuntzii Guzmán of genus Psilocybe for its subrhomboid, thick-walled
spores and its caerulescent basidioma with annulus.

KEY WORDS: hallucinogenic and blueing species, Psilocybe, sect. Stuntzii, USA, ecology, geography
Electronic Data


INTRODUCTION
Through several explorations in a xxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxx
xxxx in the United States since the spring of 2003
made by one of the authors (Gaines), we found a
blueing Psilocybe that is herein described as a new
species. It is interesting to observe that, although the
genus Psilocybe began to be studied in the United
States in 1872 by Peck (1872, 1912), and in 1958 it
came to attention with the discovery of the hallucinogenic
species (Singer and Smith, 1958)—which
Guzmán (1983, 1995, 2000) added to the known
species found in the United States—and recently
Guzmán and Trappe (2005) and Guzmán et al. (1997,
2003) described new species from the United States,
we nevertheless found yet another new species. There
are in the United States around 60 species of Psilocybe,
of which approximately 25 are hallucinogenic, and of
which around 10 are from the eastern United States
(Guzmán et al., 1997, 2003; Guzmán, 2005).

MATERIALS AND METHODS
Microscopic observations were made through handle
sections of dry basidiomata, mounted in 5% KOH or
5% NH4OH solutions or both, mixed with 1% Congo
Red solution, previously treated with 96% alcohol for
rehydrating of the tissues. The size of spores is long
and wide on face view and thick on side view.

Habitat and Distribution
Gregarious, on wood or wood debris, in trails or
places with herbaceous plants, in a deciduous forest.
Known only from the type locality.

Studied Specimens
USA, (all in XAL and Gaines Herb.).

Discussion
This species is close to Psilocybe subaeruginascens
Hohnel from Java, P. septentrionalis (Guzmán)
Guzmán from Japan, and P. wayanadensis K. A.
Thomas, Manim. et Guzmán from India (Guzmán,
1983; Thomas et al., 2002), for the rhomboid or
subrhomboid, thick-walled spores, and the annulus
and the blueing feature of the basidioma. All these
species belong to the section Stuntzii Guzmán,
following the classification of Guzmán (1983,
1995). Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata differs for the
two types of wide pleurocystidia and cheilocystidia.
For the blueing feature, this species probably has
hallucinogenic properties, following Guzmán’s
(1983) criterion.

Thanks for posting this mjshroomer. I thought there would be more in the discussion about its differences from other Psilocybes. Only three other mushroom species are compared, with no mention of caerulipes. Is this because this mushroom is so dissimilar to caerulipes that it doesn't even merit a mention? It seems that this is a new species because Guzman says it is a new species, but then there is very little in the discussion attempting to actually prove that it is a new species.

Guzman has dozens of collections of P. caerulipes in herbariums both at XAL and At the University in Mexico City.

The P. caerulipes, deposited over the years at those herbariums are the same as the ones collected and deposited in the MICH herbarium and include several collections made by the late Dr. Alexander H. Smith. Those are P. caerulipes and they are different from the P. ovoideocystidiata.

Here are the pages of P. caerulipes from Guzman in his 1983 Genus Psilocybe monograph.







I would also like to point out that both Peck, in his original descriptions, and Smith, as well as Singer and Smith, all note that P. caerulipes turns blue or greenish blue and all say it is slow in changing color while the P. ovoideocystidiata turn blue instantly with no green in the color.

Stamets writes
Quote:

The bluing reaction is variable, more evident in drying, and may take several hours before it can be seen.

Thanks a bunch MJ,
the lack of psilo's in my area is pretty serious. This is the first new one I've heard that can be found here besides blue foots or liniformans and a few others. Thanks alot I'm gonna have to do some more research about this little known zoomer. peace

I should note that the name blue-foot in reference to Psilocybe caerulipes referred to bluing a the base of the stem. not the whole stem. And years later, Gary Lincoff, whose P. caerulipes images is in Paul Stamets book, Also named P. stuntzii as Stuntzii's Blue Legs.

I once asked him why he called it that and he said, "for lack of anything better."

Of course, in the PNW, blue Ringers usually refers to P. stuntzii, but two other similar species also get called "blue ringers." Those would be P. fimetaria and P. sierrae.

the former is found rarely in manure in fields. And P. stuntzii is found in pastures the same as liberty caps, but are very rare in pastures.

In man-made environments, P. stuntzii and the other two grow prolifically and abundantly in lawns and gardens in thePNW.

P. caerulipes is ell collected by the later Dr. Alexander h. Smith of the University of michigan.

Although he has passed away almost 20-years ago, other intrepid shroom hunters in Michigan have made deposits at the herbarium there of both P. caerulipes and now P. olivoideocystidiata.

mj

I also believe one species of Conocybe is in Michigan, however, I usually ask pickers to avoid orange to rusty brown spored mushrooms because of their relationship to the deadly Galerinas and deadly conocybe species.

IT was Andy Weil,who, before the P. stuntzii's were named said a student at Evergreen in Olympia referred to them as, "Washington Blue Veils."

However, no one I met in the 1970s or 1980s ever called them that. Blue ringers and ringers were common names in Seattle.

Ott found P. stuntzii in two locations in Oregon in 1975-1976. He published a paper listing Oregon City and Milwaukee as two locations in Oregon. No one saw them again in ORegon until Gartz and I found what may have been as much as 50 pounds of them in the mulch of the Valley River Shopping Center's Parking Lot growing in mulch in the parking areas of the Bon Marche along the Willamette river across from Skinners Butte Park in Eugene. Both Blue Ringers and P. cyanescens were also common in Hendricks Park in Eugene at that time.


BTW, that was in the mid 1970s and 1991, so they are not there now. Shrooms that is.

Still WE found them int he 1970s everywhere. While people picked the pastures clean of liberty caps, we found them everywhere in Seattle. Every park lawn, every downtown office building, nursing homes, King County Jail yard, Country courthouse and the 5 1/2 acre Freeway park, home to five varieties of magic shrooms wall to wall in the bed boxes as well as the lawns.

Now their habitat is suburban lawns. As more and more pasture lands keep being replace with one story non-polluting Boeing buildings and office warehouses, the fertilizers which once spread these mushrooms into about 70%of all new lawns in the region, have all but disappeared in the city and are common in suburbs.

Are the gills in this picture "fimbriate"? This " wavy gill" is a common trait of young gills. The reason I ask is the online definitions of the word fimbriate are not descriptive enough for me to be sure if they include this kind of curliness.

Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata can have fimbriate gills and the cap can be green.

Yes and every 1 in 10,000 P. cyanescens can have a green cap also.

see below,



and another point. See this P. cyan and the drop in the caps edges, similar to what you were asking about above.

This is not a normal P. cyanescens, yet it was Identified by microscopic study at the U of Washington and later confirmed by Ewald Gerhaard.


Also, I have not seen a single Brown cap in Dan's photos of in either the in vitro or the outdoor as the cap is noted in both P. caerulipes taxonomic id's.

I really am going to stay away from this thread.

The fimbriate gills and the greening of the caps are common.

Edit: The fimbriate gills are common when tempatures are cool as the mushroom fruits. The greening of the caps is common when the fruits are exposed to dry cool air.

Falcon, perhaps there is something there that I forgot to mention to you.

I am the one who told Mr. Mushrooms that the mushrooms were P. caerulipes several years ago which is why some here believe them to be P. caerulipes.

I suppose that is your source for the identification. I think I may have mentioned that also to Shroomy Dan in a PM or email.

mj

Now I will post Singer and Smith's Monograph pages of their studies of P. caerulipes and the chemical analysis of same by Leung and Paul in 1969 or so.

I Spent a few hours a the University today and had a hard time finding several papers. Had to go to several libraries, situated across campus from each other.

The volume 50 of Mycologia which has the Singer and Smith monograph as well as their covering of the Historical Spanish Shroom era, I found that over 80 pages had been excised from the journal of two articles on shrooms by Rolf Singer and Alexander H. Smith and they had replaced with poor quality xerox copies of single pages meaning it cost me double for 80 pages to copy.

The volume 50 issue of Mycologia, which has the Mexican Species and history by Singer and Smith and then their monograph of the known psychoactive Psilocybes in 1958, had been excised.

I am now posting that articles pages on P. caerulipes, emended here from the Saccardo's revision of Peck's identification of Agaricus caerulipes in 1889 for you and others to read.

Also you can see the word stirps, which Dr. Guzmán refers to now as sections. WHile Singer placed the P. caerulipes in the stirps, Caerulipes, he felt it could be placed into stirps cyanescens. Something Guzman did 20-years after when Guzmán wrote his monograph.

I also have the Panaeolus monograph in German to post a pictorial of the sketches of some of the known species. I will do that later.

The name refers to the ovoid shaped cystidia, so I have been saying.

shroomy dan: Are you sure that all these midwest woodlovers you have been finding are the same species? Like maybe some are P. caerulipes and others are Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata? I have noticed in your pictures that some of the mushrooms caps are brown sorta caramel like p cyanences, while others have pale almost white cap as if another species. Does this vary from time of the year or is this just random?

I am 99.99% sure they are all the same species.

Look at these:



The change in color from brown to whitish tan in the first photo is due to drying of the caps. When a mushroom cap changes to a lighter color as it dries, the mushroom is said to be hygrophanous. In the first photo the brown whet caps are newer than the straw colored dry caps.

In the second photo you can see that one cap is starting to turn blue. The blue is the result of psilocin oxidation. As falcon mentioned somewhere, cold dry air causes the caps to turn blue.

Regarding the paper on the taxonomy and locations of P. ovoideocystidiata, I was asked to remove the m locations of species noted in that paper by one of the authors.
\See below my comments about this,

I would like to inform everyone reading this text that one of the authors wrote to me and asked me to remove the locations provided in the article on page one of this thread as to where he found his collections. While I normally do not do this, I can only say if you want to know where those collections came from then you would have to purchase a reprint of the article from Begell House, publishers for the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms. I will also say that I do not believe that hundreds of people would flock to his listed locations because they are in areas which spread for miles and miles.

I made this Psilocybe ovoideocystiada range map today.

Is it accurate?

SO far today only Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virgina have collections of P. ovoidiocystidiata.

Collections are now deposited in NY, XAL, Mich.Chula, Leipzig, and Nestles.

mj

Not sure about the Michigan collections of the P. ovoideocystidiata.

I will check on those in a while, maybe tomorow.

Beautiful photos.
Do you have an accompanying list of species to go along?


Many thanks,

Here's a link to the article if anyone wants to purchase it and see what the locations are:
