Deconica inquilina is a species of mushroom in the Strophariaceae family. Formerly a member of the genus Psilocybe (well known for its psilocybin containing members), this species belonged to the non-blueing (non-hallucinogenic) clade[1] and was consequently moved to Deconica in 2009.[2]

Habitat and distribution[edit]

Deconica inquilina is found growing on decaying grass. It is very widely distributed, reported from North America, South America and Europe.[3]
