Yes, they are psychoactive. Observation 7382 was eaten and classic psilocybin effects were noted.

Tshirts are available here.

Recent DNA analysis has shown that this species should be reclassified into Psilocybe. Since this was the type species for Weraroa, all Weraroa’s are to be reclassified into the genus they split off from. Turns out that being secotioid is a mutation that can happen in any genus, it isn’t a characteristic that binds them all into a proper genus.

Wow! Spectacular!

Those blue-stained, bulbous, multiple mushroom images would make a great T-shirt…
The best of both worlds: a beautifully bizarre secotiod fungus AND psychoactive (if the color is any indication).

Thanks for posting these images, Allan. When’s our next New Zealand foray?
