Name: Psilocybe aucklandiae
Author: Guzmán, C.C. King & Bandala
Citation: [as ‘aucklandii’], in Guzmán, G.; Bandala, V.M.; King, C., Mycological Research 95(4): 507 (1991).
Misspellings: Psilocybe aucklandii Guzmán, C.C. King & Band.-Muñoz
NOTES: This species has been found only in the Auckland region, where it appears to be quite common on soil and litter in native forest and in pine plantations. As noted by Guzman et al. (1991), P. aucklandii is very similar to P. zapotecorum R. Heim emend. Guzman, which is common in Mexico and known from South America. The two species are barely distinguishable microscopically, although comparison with published descriptions (Guzman 1983) show that P. aucklandii may have slightly narrower pleurocystidia and slightly wider spores. Published illustrations of P. zapotecorum (Guzman 1983) appear to show that P. aucklandii is a less robust species.
