Deconica coprophila, commonly known as the dung-loving Psilocybe, is a species of mushroom in the Strophariaceae family. First described as Agaricus coprophilus by Jean Baptiste François Pierre Bulliard in 1793,[2] it was transferred to the genus Psilocybe by Paul Kummer in 1871.[3] In the late 2000s, several molecular studies showed that the Psilocybe was polyphyletic,[4][5][6] and the non-bluing (non-hallucinogenic) species were transferred to Deconica.[7]
