Microscopically confirmed - Wild Georgia collection by phishhead.

Psilocybe atlantis
Substrate: Grass seed

I've been trying to get a viable collection of this species since I discovered that the ATL7 strain was actually a species closer to Psilocybe galindoi.

The sine wave cap, reminiscent of Psilocybe cyanescens is a persistent feature in the mature cultivated specimens. A low annulus was noted on the first flush mushrooms but doesn't appear in later flushes.

Similar growth habits to P. galindoi but a bit faster. It does form sclerotia on agar but not yet confirmed to form on grains. Unlike P. galindoi, this species blues dramatically when bruised.

The wavy cap wasn't what I expected with this species, but the last picture is of a 2001 collection by Lizard King showing a similar cap margin.

A very promising species for addition to the known sclerotia formers.

You would need to either e-mail Sporeworks or call them for a quick response. Workman is not here very often.

What ever happened with this species? I'm very interested in it. You said you wanted to study it some more Workman - did you ever do that or did something else catch your attention? :]

I am also eager to begin work with this one. The wavy cap is a very nice feature. I will keep my fingers crossed for it to be made available soon on Sporeworks.

Not really. I never did the invitro testing to check. But it does form sclerotia on agar so I expect it is at least moderately productive. Maybe its great, but it might suck. Time will tell. At least it fruits well.

I'll be watching too :] Thanks for your speedy reply Workman. Atlantis interests me a lot.

The wavy caps, intense bluing - and the big difference between cultivated specimens and natural ones draws me in.

I like the "stringy" look of the stems too.
