synonyms:
Psilocybe subcaerulipes Hongo (1958)
Psilocybe taiwanensis E. Horak, Guzmán i Desjardin
Psilocybe thaizapoteca Guzmán, Karunar. i Ram.-Guill

Macroscopic feat.:
  • Cap/Pileus: 2.5-5 (6) cm broad. Conic to conic-campanulate at first, soon expanding to convex, broadly convex, and eventually plane in age, and variably with a sharp umbo. Chestnut brown when wet, hygrophanous, fading in drying from disc to a golden brown, honey yellow or mustard brown or clay toned, and bruising bluish. Margin incurved when young, irregular and often wavy, and adorned with remnants of the partial veil, especially when young. Surface smooth but not viscid when moist.
  • Gills/Lamellae: Attachment adnate or adnexed, soon seceding. Grayish orange at first, eventually purple brown with whitish edges.
  • Stem/Stipe: 60-80 mm long by 2-4 mm thick. Equal, enlarging towards the base from which whitish rhizomorphs radiate. Silky white at first, then yellow toned, soon brownish to reddish brown, and adorned with white fibrillose veil remnants in the lower two thirds of the stem, yellowish brown, and whitish near the apex. Partial veil cortinate, white, and leaving a fragile annular zone on the stem, if at all, and soon disappearing.

Microscopic feat.:
  • Basidio/Spores: Dark violet brown in deposit, subellipsoid, 6.5-7.5 by 9.5 by 3.3-4.5 µm.
  • Basidia: 4-spored.
  • Pleurocistidia: Absent.
  • Cheilocystidia: 13-25 (32) by 5-8 µm.

Habitat: Gregarious to clustered on soil rich in woody debris, along trails, underneath or nearby Cryptomeria japonica, Quercus glauca or Pinus taeda. Known only from Japan

Comment: Active, according to Koike et al. (1981). This species is named for the silvery patches of fibrils adorning the stem. Psilocybe argentipes is likely to be fairly potent - comparable to Psilocybe cyanescens. This Psilocybe may be distributed outside of Japan. See also Psilocybe azurescens, Psilocybe caerulipes, Psilocybe cyanescens, Psilocybe cyanofibrillosa, Psilocybe muliercula, and Psilocybe subaeruginosa.
