Psilocybe cubensis Rusty Whyte Spores
Rusty Whyte is a hybrid of Albino A+ and Columbian Rust spores which gives a double whammy of awesome mutations. Firstly, like Albino A+ it is a leucistic variety (a partial loss of color pigmentation. Not a true albino as the spores do not lack color pigmentation) and like the Columbian Rust Spores, it drops red or rust colored spores! So specimens are a beautiful white color and they leave a rust spore print, making it a must have for any spore collector.
Habitat: Bovine, Equine Dung and Enriched Soils
Strain Origin: Rusty Whyte is a hybrid of Albino A+ and Columbian Rust
Cap: 50-75 mm in diameter, convex to broadly convex to nearly plane at maturity. leucistic variety (a partial loss of color pigmentation. Not a true albino as the spores do not lack color pigmentation). Surface dry with fine persistent remnants of universal veil on cap (spots). Flesh white soon bruising bluish green.
Stem: 125+ mm in length, yellowish. Flesh bruising bluish green where injured. Persistent membranous annulus (ring) from partial veil that becomes dusted with purple brown spores at maturity.
Gills: Attachment adnate to adnexed. Grayish coloration in young fruit bodies becoming nearly black in maturity.
Spores: Rusted red to brownish color and are subellipsoid on 4-spored basidia. The rust pigmentation is extremely rare and it is accompanied by a leucistic mutation proved to not be a true albino by rust pigmentation in the spores.
Form can be quite variable under laboratory conditions.
