Psilocybe subcubensis is an entheogenic species of mushroom in the Hymenogastraceae family.[1] The mushroom contains the medicinal compounds psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe subcubensis was first described by Mexican mycologist Gaston Guzman. It is the pantropical sister species of Psilocybe cubensis. It is macroscopically identical to Psilocybe cubensis but has smaller spores.[2]
