Summary: Moved

25 species(including Deconica coprophila) were moved to Deconica by mycologist Machiel Noordeloos in 2009.

http://www.entoloma.nl/pdf/Noordeloos_Deconica.pdf

“it was proposed in 2005 to conserve the name Psilocybe, with P. semilanceata as the type, leaving the option to use Deconica as the name for the non-hallucinogenic clade.7 The proposal was accepted unanimously by the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi in 2009.8
