Psilocybe hispanica

Psilocybe hispanica Guzmán (2000)

The Psilocybe hispanica is a new species discoverd by Ignacio Seral in 98' growing high in the hills of spain. It tends to grow in colder temps, and has even been seen growing in snow. This mushroom was fround growing on horse dung, next to patches of Psilocybe semilanceata's. The discoverer of the Psilocybe hispanica contacted Paul Stamets last October, unfortuanatly Stamets schedule was to full and a European mycologist named Giorgio Samorini from Italy flew to spain and did some research to find this was a whole new mushroom and classified it as the Psilocybe hispanica. Rumor also has it this mushroom will be featured in Paul Stamets next book Psilocybe Mushrooms of the World, Part 2 (cant wait for that one, I'm sure it will be another excellent book by Paul). We do have spore prints of this species currently, and may have some syringes soon. Its potency is said to be a very nice clean high, more potent then cubensis, but less potent then azures, more closely to that of Panaeolus species.
Some more detailed information from Ignacio on this mushrooms growing conditions.
The hispanica appears in horse dung about the 1 of october and finish about the 1 of november.... at 1700- 2000 metres high.... the latitude of spain makes the altitude date more relevant... keep in mind that in those mountains water become ice at night and the hispanicas resist freezing temps very well so there is a very cold temps at night about +5 to -5 at night and +5 to 20 at the daytime always celsius degrees.
New information from a Psilocybe hispanica fruiting in San Francisco, CA, USA Feb, 2000 !!!!
Yes.. the Psilocybe hispanica has been fruited now !!! A big atta boy goes out to Raja from San Francisco for fruiting the Psilocybe hispanica. What amazed me is it only took 3 months from inoculation to fruiting. Most of us were assuming a year long outdoor bed, so this is great news for us to get motivated on this new species.
