>P.semilanciata is a common contaminant in exhausted agaricus bisporous
Aside from the other misidentifications of LBM's and their
habitats, in your article your reference to P. semilanceata in exhausted
mushroom beds would more likely refer to Panaeolus subbalteatus, a
psilocibin containing, occasional contaminant in commercial mushroom
beds; it is most common on horse manure piles, and horse manure compost
is often used in making compost for A. bisporous production. P.
semilanceata is a pastoral species (not coprophilic) and occurs in
pastures in the Pacific northwest.
