“The Occurrence, Recreational Use, Cultivation, and Chemistry of Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata, a new Bluing Species (Agaricales) from Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia”. 
Ethnomycological Journals: Sacred Mushroom Studies. 2009 Winter;VIII.
Cultivation and analysis of Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata, a new bluing species from Ohio and Bethany West Virginia is presented. Cultivation of this species was demonstrated on hardwood substrate. Analysis of both caps and stems revealed the presence of psilocybin, in most cases psilocin and always low concentrations of baeocystin. Psilocybin, psilocin and baeocystin levels varied in the bluing caps and stems of this new species. The highest concentrations of these alkaloids were found in both naturally grown and cultivated fruiting bodies of Psilocybe ovideocystidiata which, at the present moment is an indigenous species found in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.. The relative alkaloidal content of psilocybin, psilocin and baeocystin found in Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata from Ohio was similar to that measured in Psilocybe caerulipes by Leung et al. Recent comparative chemical analysis of both species was unable to be performed due to a denial of specimens through the University of Michiganís herbarium.
