Psilocybemakororae1a

Psilocybe makarorae

A yellow-brown species found on fallen wood in beech and mixed podocarp-broadleaf forests. The cap diam. is up to 50 mm and is faintly striate towards the margin.

Psilocybe weraroa

Until recently this was known as Weraroa novaezelandiae

An irregular roundish head which is a pale blue-grey colour and about 10–30 mm diameter.

The fruiting body doesn't open to release the spores (a feature described as secotioid), so perhaps these fungi are dependent on small animals to release and spread the spores.
