Xalapa has a great diversity of fungi, only have to wait for the season and walk through patches of cloud forest surrounding the city. You do some work with the genus Psilocybe?

Un saludo! Tengo unas preguntas para ti:
En qué parte de Xalapa encontraste esta especie? Qué camino hacia Pacho Viejo?
Cuál era su hábitat? Qué otras especies encontraste al rededor? Era un ejemplar único o había muchos ejemplares en la zona?

Gracias y ojalá puedas resolver mis dudas.

I’m doing a taxonomic study of the genus Scleroderma, you have some pictures of Scleroderma I wish I could watch.
Thank you.

Yes, I am studying the Psilocybe of Mexico. I’ll be there nearly all summer traveling around Jalisco, Colima, Michoacan and Oaxaca. Hopefully I can make it to Veracruz as well.

P. zapotecorum

Hi, the day I took the photo is from July 31. Veracruz is the state with the greatest diversity of species belonging to the genus Psilocybe. Are you doing any scientific work with Psilocybe?

Nice find. It is P. zapotecorum. Is the date correct or did you find it earlier in the year?
