Psilocybe mexicana or P. galindii, and the form
and size of the pleuro- and cheilocystidia, are the

longs to the section Mexicanae Guzman (1983) for

…as well as its citation, are incorrect.
See: Psilocybe antioquiensis Guzmán, Saldarr., Pineda, G. García & L.-F. Velázquez, Mycotaxon 51: 225 (1994) [MB#362240]

The 2006 publication is not the proper citation for the type collection.

Lastly, when quoting a description “word for word”, it’s prudent to include the citation of the publication in the description.
