I hope they have dried nicely, while not contaminated with mold all this very well.

Thank you very much for everything.

Kind regards,

in the United States and will send samples to you in the next few days. Unfortunately the climate was very humid for a few days after I collected these. I have since dried them beside a fire and then ran them through my dehydrator once I returned home. Hopefully there is still useable material when they reach you.

This is a very interesting collection, could be Psilocybe moseri. I wonder if you agree to send me a sample for identification.
Thank you very much for sharing

Would be really interesting to see the microscopy and ITS/LSU sequences.

I am sure it is in Psilocybe section Zapotecorum, I am not sure if it is that species….The stipe is usually more floccose in P. zapotecorum. Reminds me a little of P. subcaerulipes.

If I were to

potentially have a few herbarium specimens, what would be a good way to get them where they need to go?
