Bolbitiaceae
Agrocybe farinacea
Contains psilocybin (Koike et al [1981]).
Conocybe cyanopus, C. kuehneriana, C. siligineoides, C. smithii
C. cyanopus (Benedict et al [1962]) and C. smithii (Benedict et al [1967]) contain psilocybin and psilocin while C. kuehneriana contains psilocin only (Ohenoja et al [1987]). C. siligineoides may also contain these alkaloids (Schultes & Hofmann [1979] p. 40).
Coprinaceae
Copelandia anomala, C. bispora, C. cambodginiensis, C. chlorocystis, C. cyanescens, C. tropicalis
All species contain psilocin and psilocybin, for C. cyanescens (Schultes & Hofmann 1979 p. 40) and for C. cambodginiensis as well as C. tropicalis (Arora [1986]), and for C. anomala as well as C. bispora (Merlin & Allen [1993]).
Panaeolina castaneifolius, P. foenisecii
P. foenisecii contains psilocybin (Robbers et al [1969]).
Panaeolus africanus, P. antillarum, P. ater, P. campanulatus, P. firmicola, P. microsporus, P. olivacens, P. retirugis, P. separatus, P. sphinctrinus, P. subbalteatus
Several Panaeolus species contain psilocybin. For P. antillarum refer to Allen et al [1991], for P. ater refer to Bresinsky et al [1990], for P. papilionaceus (Gurevich et al [1992]), for P. retirugis (Fiussello et al [1971],[1972]), for P. separatus ((Miller Jr [1972]), for P. sphinctrinus (Hein & Wasson [1958] p. 322) and for P. olivacens (Ohenoja et al [1987]). P. subbalteatus contains both psilocin and psilocybin (Ohenoja et al [1987]) but was known to be hallucinogenic since 1959 (Stein [1959]). P. firmicola is also described as hallucinogenic and probably contains the same alkaloids (Schultes [1979]).
Psathyrella candollenana
Contains psilocybin (Koike et al [1981]) and psilocin (Ohenoja et al [1987]).
Cortinariaceae
Galerina steglichii
Contains psilocybin and psilocin (Besl [1993]).
Gymnopilus aeruginosus, G. liquiritiae, G. luteus, G. purpuratus, G. spectabilis, G. validipes, G. viridans
Many Gymnopilus contain psilocybin, for G. aeruginosus, G. luteus, G. spectabilis, G. validipes and G.viridans refer to Hatfield et al [1978]. For G. liquiritiae (Koike [1981]) and for G. purpuratus (Gartz [1991]).
Inocybe aeruginascens, I. calamistrata, I. coelestium, I. corydalna, I. haemacta, I. tricolor
These contain psilocin and psilocybin, for P. aeruginascens refer to Haeselbarth et al [1985] and for the others Stijve et al. [1985].
Lepiotaceae
Lepiota humei Murrill (also known as peele: "Peele's Lepiota")
This mushroom was claimed by Peele of Florida Mycology Research Center (PO Box 8104 Pensacola Florida 32505) to contain a legal tryptamine, which produces a trip with less physical symptoms and better ability of logical thinking than psilocin or psilocybin. Bioassay results didn't find psychoactivity (Akers [1992]).
Pluteaceae
Pluteus atricapillus, P. cyanopus, P. nigroviridis, P. salicinus
P. atricapillus contains psilocybin (Ohenoja et al [1987]) while both P. salicinus (Saupe [1981]) and P. nigroviridis (Christiansen et al [1984]) contain psilocin and psilocybin.
Polyporaceae
Gerronema fibula, G. swartzii
These contain psilocybin.
Hygrocybe psittacina
This contains psilocybin.
[Psilocybe mushroom] Strophariaceae
Psilocybe antioquensis, P. aucklandii, P. beliconiae, P. coprophila, P. crobulus, P. cubensis (pictured), P. guatapensis, P. samuiensis, P. subacutipilea (75 Known hallucinogenic species +)
There are at least 75 mushroom species in this genus that contain psilocin and psilocybin in Guzman [1983], and there are several more recently discovered species such as P. aucklandii (Guzman et al [1993]), P. samuiensis (Guzman et al [1991]) and P. antioquensis, P. beliconiae, P. guatapensis and P. subacutipilea (Guzman et al [1994]). Also P. coprophila, while lacking psilocin (making it a non-blueing psilocybe) is known to contain psilocybin (Arora [1986]). P. crobulus is also known to be hallucinogenic (Phillips [1981]).
