Psilocybe West Virginian specimens....

These are bieng tracked all along the Ohio river valley. 4 locations have been documented so far.
Guzman says they may not be Ps. caerulipes, and others have found Ps. cubensis in the state as well. So are we getting more and more fungi migrating north, or is there some type of odd cross breeding/evolution going on?
Have you found or worked with these yet Lazlo?

Nice of the gov to watch out and make sure the pickers don't "OD" on the mushrooms! That was a funny comment...
I guess WVA has no real crime, since they can assign cops the job of watching a pasture, eh?
And the article also points out a blunder to avoid: leave the weed at home if you're gonna tresspass and pick illegal fungi!

He also said he met with an environmentalist and an attorney from Wheeling-Pitt, which owns 160 acres in the area.
"We took them to the scene," Kazienko said, adding that since the meeting, Wheeling-Pitt has contacted the West Virginia University Extension Office and the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources.
"They wanted to see what they could do to eradicate the mushrooms," Kazienko said.
He said there are other options, such as using a bulldozer to clear the area.
Lol, an environmentalist! My ass! I can hear the conversation now: "Well, we don't need those hippy folk wandering around trampling the environment. So lets just bulldoze, poison and eradicate this natural species!" Lol, lol- what a hypocritical jerk.
ANYWAY, any updates on this Lazlo?
