Species List: Hongos Psilocibina De Uruguay (Setas, Champiñones) (1801)
When: 2021-09-23
Observations: 0


Psilocybin Fungi Of Uruguay
(Setas, Champiñones)

A Desarrollar (Ingles = To Be Developed).

Uruguay will likely reveal several species in the genus Gymnopilus which produce Psilocybin. Gymnopilus species grow on wood (wood chip trails, fallen logs/branches, tree stumps, clear-cut debris, logging road wood debris, and at the bases of living trees). More photographs are needed to understand the current biodiversity emerging from this country. Please see:

Gymnopilus junonius (=Gymnopilus spectabilis)

Uruguay may have more Panaeolus species waiting to be found in fertilized garden soils, fertilized lawns (especially newly laid lawns with sod), and in fields with animal dung. This includes cow-grazing fields, horse stables and horse racing courses, equestrian trails, and possibly other large animal localities – like sites known for elk, buffalo, sheep, and/or elephants. Please see:

Panaeolus cinctulus

Panaeolus cyanescens

The genus Pluteus requires profoundly more amplified attention by mycologists in Uruguay. It is likely that several Psilocybin-producing species are currently growing on fallen branches, decaying logs, tree stumps, tree bases, logging roads, and on clear-cut debris in the forests. Excellent photography is now needed throughout this nation. Please also see:

Uruguay may possess more species in the genus Psilocybe than what is listed below. This diverse genus exhibits species capable of growing from dung, wood, soil, and intermediate substrates. If you or someone you know locates a collection, please thoroughly photograph the species, dry it out completely, and save it (properly) for microscopy and DNA sequencing.

Psilocybe caeruleoannulata

Psilocybe cubensis

Psilocybe uruguayensis
Host-Substratum/Locality: On dung of Equus caballus: Uruguay
Please see Page 250:

Los No Conocidos (Ingles = The Un-Knowns)
A Desarrollar (Ingles = To Be Developed).
It is absolutely possible that other genera producing Psilocybin are naturally growing in this nation. Strong caution is advised due to potential poisonous species in some of these genera. Panaeolopsis, Pholiotina, Oudemansiella, Inosperma, Mycena, Galerina, e Inocybe.

Literatura Inglesa:

¡Hola! Pregunta importante: ¿Quién puede realizar de manera asequible (o libre) la secuenciación de ADN dentro de Uruguay para las colecciones Gymnopilus, Panaeolus, Panaeolopsis, Pholiotina, Psilocybe, Pluteus, Oudemansiella, Conocybe, Inosperma, Mycena, Galerina, e Inocybe?

Notas: Mushroom Observer necesita una fotografía más excelente de las especies mencionadas anteriormente. Por favor, siempre haga todo lo posible para fotografiar las tapas, branquias, tallos, sustratos y hábitats. Las fotografías en primer plano también deben incluirse siempre que sea posible. ¡Gracias!

Una Mas: Por favor, comparta esta lista de especies con amigos y compañeros exploradores.
