The uber rare Psilocybe caerulescens, available for the first time right here! This species thrives around loblolly pine and sweet gum trees, found in red clay soils as seen in my third photo. In Georgia this species can be easily found by searching edges of maintained parks, in small microclimates along the edge of the forest. Be sure to sift through the Bermuda grass and fescue as they like to hide. I had three friends searching across northern GA and everyone hit gold but me 🤷🏻♂️. These were mistakenly named “psilocybe weilii” by Stamets, after he thought he discovered a new species in GA. Turns out Paul jumped the gun too quick as it had been previously been identified and used for decades in Mexico.
These samples were collected in Clayton Country, Georgia. Gorgeous!
