Psilocybe pintonii Magic Mushrooms
Psilocybe pintonii: Background
Psilocybe pintonii magic mushrooms are closely related to Psilocybe zapotecorum and Psilocybe muliercula. Because of the bluing reaction, this is probably a hallucinogenic species, but there is no information about its use.
Psilocybe pintonii: Habitat
Psilocybe pintonii magic mushrooms grow solitary or gregariously on soil without herbal vegetation in the Andean Moorlands of Columbia, often with frailejones flowers.
