Psilocybe tampanensis is one of the rarest psilocybin-containing mushrooms. Other mushroom species found within the genus psilocybe include psilocybe cubensis (p. cubensis) and psilocybe mexicana (p. mexicana). First discovered near Tampa, Florida in the late-1970s, the “shroom” vanished from the wild for over 40 years before re-emerging. Mycologists were able to clone and reproduce the hallucinogenic mushroom, thereby spreading it for consumption
