Description

Psilocybe Ovoideocystidiata (Ovoid) Mushroom Spore Swab

Disclaimers

If you want to buy low priced Psilocybe Ovoid spore swabs, be cautious as Psilocybe Ovoideocystidiata spores are “active spores” which are for microscopy or artistic purposes. We will not complete your order if you contact us regarding the cultivation of active spores. Similarly, for legal reasons if you mention cultivating active spores or ask for cultivating advice, you will be subsequently banned from the site.

These spores are from a species that produces psilocybin and psilocin. For legal reasons they can only ship to 47 out of the 50 United States. Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, and Georgia.

Sonoran Spores acquires these spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner.  Further, Sonoran Spores does not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin/psilocin producing or “active” species.  Sonoran Spores also does not have any mycelium or fruiting bodies of psilocybin and psilocin producing species.  We will not sell any products containing this so do not ask.

Spore Visibility Disclaimer: When you buy P.Ovoid spore swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visually. All swabs are unique and may not look identical to each other or the picture above. Despite these visible differences, spore swabs are still viable for microscopy research.

Psilocybe Ovoideocystidiata Spores Information

Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata is a more newly described mushroom species. Because its scientific name is quite the mouthful, many simply refer to it as “Ovoid” as there is no common name for it, yet. This species was first discovered growing in nature in Montgomery Country, PA. In fact, it’s mainly found growing wildly in the eastern and southern US. However it’s been spreading across North America and there’ve been new findings in the western US. They also naturally occur in Germany, Switzerland, and a few other European countries. In nature, they most commonly grow on wood chips or mulch near rivers, streams, or other bodies of water. Furthermore, the Ohio River Valley specifically is known to have a very healthy population of this species. 

Although their seasonality depends on their region, in the US they tend to grow from April to June, although sometimes even as late as November. They’re most abundant during May, especially after consecutive days of rain. A key identifying characteristic of Ovoids is that they grow in large clusters, often over 100 specimens strong. Due to their many look-a-like species, they will make an excellent addition to your spore library especially if you have an interest in mushroom taxonomy.

Microscopic Features

It is important to note that when you buy P.Ovoid spores, they do have look-a-like species that they are also similar to genetically. The look-a-likes include: P. subaeruginosa (originates in Java), P. septentrionalis (originates in Japan), P. wayanadenis (originates in India), and P. caerulipes (originates in N. America). You can distinguish Ovoids from the other species by their seasonality and their spore shape. Their key distinguishing feature is their rhomboid shape spores. 

When you buy P.Ovoid Spores, they are dark purple to dark brown in color. At face view, they have a rhomboid shape and in side view they have a subellipsoid (ellipse) shape. Additionally, the spores are approximately 6 x 6 micrometers in size.  The Caps are convex or umbonate in shape (they become more flat with age) and the edges are commonly wavy. The stipe has a ring which is another key identifier. 

Due to the fact that these spores are from wild specimens, there is a higher chance that you will find contaminations underneath the microscope.
