Confusion over the Tampanensis...
    #837241 - 08/23/02 03:12 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hello,
Me and friends have been having an argument over the psilocybe Tampanensis mushroom. You see, in Amsterdam, psilocybe Tampanensis is the name given to the philosophers stones. But in Paul Stamets book, Psilocybe mushrooms of the world, it identifies the Tampanensis mushroom as something completely different.
So what is Psilocybe Tampanensis????
Please help with this one,
thanks

Psdilocybe tampanensis is a species dnamed and discovered by the late Dr. Steven Hayden Pollock and Dr. Gast?n Guzm?n. It was found, only 1 lone specimens in a sandy soil near Tampa, Florida.

In AMsterdam they sell the sclerotia of Psilocybe tampenensis as the Philosophers stone. ORiginally name as the Cosmic Camote by Pollock inthe late 1970s. Both the Amsterdam shops are correct as is Paul Stamets id of tha actual shroom and not the sclerotia. Other sclerotia producing shroms include P. mexicana (not P. mexicanus,a cubensis sold in Amsterdam) and Concoybe cyanopus. Both prodducers of Sclerotia or philosophers stone as you referred to it here.

It was found with Gary lincoff and its been found twice, in Florida first then in Mississippi.

Take my id's with caution, still learning. Will not trade psilocybe prints in the states of California, Idaho and Georgia.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think only what was called Ps tampanensis at the time was found in Tampa, FL and the Mississippi find was called Ps mexicana.  They are both known to be synonymous these days and Psilocybe mexicana var tampanensis would be more correct.

Note that you're replying in a 15 year old thread, and that neither of the users are active on this site anymore.

Other than that, yes, P. tampanensis is likely just P. mexicana.
