Brief Description:

This fungus is closely related to the hallucinogenic and lignicolous P. yungensis SINGER & SMITH described from Bolivia (SINGES & SMITH, 1958) and reported also from Mexico (HEIM & WASSON, 1958); furthermore it is close to P. mammillata MuRill) SMITH, a native species from Jamaica (MURILL, 1918). P. brunneocystidiata differs from the before mentioned two taxa in the brown pleurocystidia and in the well developed veil remnants forming the distinct subpersistent subannulus. Obvious relationships also can be traced to several species recently described by GUZMAN (1977) from tropical forests in Mexico (P. naematolomiformis, P. singeri, P. uxpanapensis, and P. weldenii). All these Mexicans pecies have brown pleurocystidia but are seperated from P. brunneocystidiata by different cheilocystidia. From the taxonomical point of view brown coloured pleurocystidia as observed in some tropical species are considered as a primitive character in Psilocybe (GUZMAN 1977).
