Fresh off the press, P. niveotropicalis from Jupiter, Florida. Scott Ostuni's first major contribution to mycology, the discovery of this species from southeast Florida. Found fruiting in mulched and irrigated landscaping, the wild habitat for this species is currently unknown. Originally this was thought to be P. ovoideocystidata, but Ostuni thought otherwise based on macroscopic features. With the help of DNA barcoding and microscopy this fungus was shown to be a unique species, and is currently awaiting  publication! This is one of the most exciting mushrooms out of the USA currently! Potency analysees suggest these mushrooms can range from 14-20mg/g tryptamine content! Listing spores for microscopy use! Get researching!
