Psilocybe moseri is a species that I have spent six years looking for, and last week I finally saw it in Pastaza, Ecuador.   It is in Psilocybe section Zapotecroum, and most closely resembles Psilocybe muliercula, differing by preferring a tropical habitat and is slightly smaller in size.   Like P. muliercula, it likes disturbed, muddy soils.   It was described from Chiapas, Mexico in 1995, but is more common in central and south America.

An excellent post by Alan. Kudos on the find Alan.  Wish I could go to Thailand but I would have to go by boat as i am not allowed to fly more than 2-3 hours at a time.  prbably on a steamer or freighter. I do not want to go on a Tourist ship.  I did go to the Uk on the SS. Maasdam in the 1960s  Cost was $160 dollars and 9-10 days from New York,.  Plane fare was about $160 dollars one way but that took ten hours frmo Chicago to London..  10 hours vs ten days.  I took the ten day boat and met some good friends back then
