Initially, this sample was described as Psilocybe atlantis and we assumed that was correct since no similar species were known in Georgia. Samples sent to Psilocybe expert Gaston Guzman cast some doubt on the mushroom's actual identity, but no alternative identification was suggested.

A direct comparison of samples with the published description of P. atlantis confirmed Guzman's findings. The strain ATL#7 is not Psilocybe atlantis but is instead a related species in the Section Mexicanae. This new collection closely resembles Psilocybe galindoi (galindii), a species previously known only from Mexico, and, for lack of a better name, had been identified as such for years.

Genetic testing has revealed this collection to be a variety of Psilocybe tampanensis, a species previously only known to occur in the state of Florida.

Cap: 10-30+ mm in diameter, broadly convex to plane at maturity. Surface dry.

Stem: 100-150 mm in length. Flesh bruising bluish green where injured. Partial veil cortinate.

Gills: Attachment adnate to adnexed.

Spores: 9.8-11.2 microns, subrhomboid to subellipsoid, dark purplish brown

Comments: This species forms sclerotia invitro. See also Ps. mexicana and Ps. tampanensis
