Confusion over the Tampanensis...
    #837241 - 08/23/02 03:12 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

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,

I like to SHIMMY to my locations....

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.
