Habitat & Distribution

Insects of the family Dipterocarpaceae, especially those belonging to the genera Shorea and Dacryodes, are known to form mycorrhizal associations with Ficus species. In Southeast Asia, Shorea spp. are commonly found growing in association with fig trees, while Dacryodes spp. associate with the same host plants as well as bamboo. In China, several species of Shorea and Dacriodeae have been reported to occur naturally associated with fig trees, including Shorea robusta, S. acuminata, S. lancifolia, S. philippinensis, S. yunnanensis, and Dacrydium fabaceum.

The fungus appears to grow best under moist conditions, such as in rainforests, although it is occasionally recorded in drier environments. A recent study showed that the fungus grows better in soils rich in humus, and that the presence of soil fungi enhances the growth of the tree.

This fungus is widely distributed throughout tropical Asia, where it is most common in southern India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Taiwan. It is also present in Australia, South Africa, and Madagascar.

Mushrooms of the genus Pholiota are characterized by having caps covered with large numbers of short erect hairs. They are generally small mushrooms, rarely exceeding 10 cm in diameter, with a fragile stem. Their color ranges from white to yellowish, and they bruise blue when broken. Some specimens become blackish with maturity.

A typical feature of Pholiota is the production of volva-like structures called paraphyses, which emerge from pores on the underside of the cap. These structures contain masses of threadlike elements that radiate outward like spokes on a wheel. The threads are composed of chitinous material secreted by the basidia, which are specialized cells that produce spores.

Pholiota nameko is an edible mushroom native to Japan. It has a very distinctive flavor, similar to that of truffles. This mushroom is considered one of the “three treasures” (三宝) of Japanese cuisine.

P. nameko is a rare mushroom, and only about 100 specimens have ever been collected. Because of its rarity, this mushroom commands high prices among collectors.

P. nameko was first described scientifically in 1883 by Kobayasi Kiyoshi (1853–1925), who named it Agarikon namekou no shi (草木君のし). He noted that the mushroom had a strong smell reminiscent of truffle, but he did not specify whether the odor came from the flesh or the spore mass.

Kobayashi’s description reads: “Cap 6–8 cm in diameter, convex at first, then becoming flat, finally depressed, dark brownish gray, sometimes with a whitish margin.”

He further commented: “Gills free, close, adnexed, white. Stem 1

Legality of Psilocybe cubensis

The term ‘psychedelic’ refers to substances that produce altered states of consciousness. These include psychedelic drugs such as LSD, mescaline, DMT, MDMA, and others. There are many different types of psychedelics, including herbs, fungi, and synthetic chemicals. Some people use the terms ‘hallucinogen’ and ‘psychotomimetic’ synonymously with ‘psychedelic’.

Psychedelics have been used in religious contexts since ancient times, and continue to be used today. They are also sometimes used recreationally, although recreational use is controversial due to concerns about health effects and abuse potential.

In the 1960s, the US government classified several compounds as Schedule I controlled substances, meaning that they had a high risk of abuse and no accepted medical use. This classification includes most psychedelics, except those derived from lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).
