Psilocybe Tampanensis shapes psychoactive truffle-like sclerotia that are known and sold under the moniker “scholar’s stones.” Some devour the organic product bodies and sclerotia for recreational or entheogenic purposes. The parasite creates sclerotia as a type of insurance from out of control fires and other catastrophic events.
The top ranges fit as a fiddle from curved or conic with a slight umbo, extending in age to wind up noticeably leveled or with a small focal melancholy; it achieves breadths of 1 cm– 2.4 cm. The surface is smooth, not striate (notched), ochraceous darker to straw dark colored, buff to yellowish-dim when dry, with slight pale blue tones at the edge, hygrophanous, and to some degree sticky when wet. The gills are much adnate (comprehensively appended to the stem marginally over the base of the gill, with the vast majority of the gill melded to the stem) and darker to dim purple darker in shading with lighter edges. The stem is 2 cm– 6 cm long, and 1 mm– 2 mm thick, and equivalent in width all through to somewhat developed close to the base. There are fibrils close to the highest point of the stem. The halfway cover is coordinate, and soon vanishes. The tissue is whitish to yellowish, and wounds blue when harmed. The taste and smell are somewhat farinaceous (like newly ground flour).
Spores may show up to some degree rhombic to ellipsoid fit as a fiddle, contingent on the edge from which they are seen.
The spore print is purple-darker. At the point when seen with a magnifying instrument, the spores of P. Tampanensis are to some degree rhombic in confronting see and circular in side view. Spores seem earthy yellow if mounted in an answer of potassium hydroxide and have a thick, smooth divider, an unmistakable germ pore, and a short extremity.
The spore-bearing cells are four-spored, hyaline (translucent), and measure 14 – 22 by 8– 10 µm. The cheilocystidia (cystidia on the gill confront) weigh 16– 22 by 4– 9 µm, and are lageniform (carafe molded) with flexuous thin necks that are 2.2– 3 µm thick, and occasionally have sporadic branches.
For right around two decades after its revelation, Psilocybe Tampanensis was known just from the sort region, southeast of Brandon in Florida. Guzmán announced discovering it in 1996 in a valley with sandy soil in a deciduous backwoods in Pearl which is in River County, Mississippi, a territory like that of the sort area. Because of its shortage, be that as it may, its territory inclinations are not known with assurance. Just like all Psilocybe species, it can be referred to as being saprobic.
