The species name of this collection should be “Psilocybe subaeruginascens Höhn.”, particularly since it’s the holotype.

Could you switch the pictures?

Right now, you have a mixed spore collection as the main display photo for this type collection.

Hi – please note that the picture on top is a mixed set of spores – the darker, thick-walled spores are from the holotype of Psilocybe subaeriginascens, but the lighter thinner walled ones are from a collection of Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata and were included to give a direct comparison between the two.
