Psilocybe angustipleurocystidiata is a Mexican species of entheogenic mushroom in the family Hymenogastraceae. It contains the compounds psilocybin and psilocin.

This mushroom was first described by Mexican mycologist Gaston Guzman.[1] Psilocybe angustipleurocystidiata has been found in the state of Mexico, Morelos and Vera Cruz, where it is common in subtropical Pinus and Alnus forests at elevations between 1800 and 2400 meters.

Psilocybe angustipleurocystidiata is in the section Zapotecorum of the genus Psilocybe, other members of this section include Psilocybe muliercula, Psilocybe aucklandii, Psilocybe collybioides, Psilocybe graveolens, Psilocybe kumaenorum, Psilocybe zapotecorum, Psilocybe pintonii, Psilocybe subcaerulipes, Psilocybe moseri, Psilocybe zapotecoantillarum, Psilocybe zapotecocaribaea, and Psilocybe antioquiensis.[2][3]
