Psilocybe natarajanii

Psilocybe natarajanii Guzmán


synonyms:
Psilocybe aztecorum var. bonetii (Guzmán) Guzmán sensu Natarajan & Raman.

This species differs from Psilocybe aztecorum var. bonetii known only from Mexico, in the size and form of the pleurocystidia. Psilocybe natarajanii has mucronate pleurocystidia 21-28 x 7-10 µm, instead of the 20-45 x 5-8 µm, lageniform pleurocystidia with a long neck found in the Mexican fungus. Psilocybe natarajanii is known only from the type locality. This species is close to Psilocybe pseudoaztecorum (Natarajan & Raman, 1985) (= Psilocybe aztecorum var. aztecorum sensu Natarajan & Raman, 1983), but differs in the smaller spores, 12.5-17 µm long in Psilocybe pseudoaztecorum vs. 10-12.5(-14) µm in Psilocybe natarajanii. The above description is compiled from Natarajan & Raman (1983), because no herbarium material was studied.
