According to Guzman (1995) and Noordeloos (2001) the form of basidiospores and the thickness of their wall ate important taxonomic features in Psilocybe, and for Guzman (1995) this is the base of the division of the genus in sections.
Even after culling isolates with clamp connections (three out of 25 putative single-basidiospore isolates), genetic evidence strongly indicates that extra-numerary nuclei are clonal, for if they had migrated into basidiospores randomly, a self-cross would show some hemicompatible combinations in which a single isolate mates with more than one mating type.
This mobile copper bound to the untreated surfaces and provided protection against germination of basidiospores, even those of at least one copper-tolerant fungus (Choi et al.
To make matters worse specimens obtained from the field collection are often without their cap and/or stipe intact and left with only the sclerotia (the medicinally useful part) thus making it impossible to make identification based on the pore and basidiospore sizes.
