Historical Background[edit]

Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Commonly called "Gold Caps" (or "Golden Teacher" in the Netherlands), it belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis.

In the Shadowreign era there appears a new color variation for the funguar that all have a deep yellow or golden appearance. These are: Coppercap, Brasscap, Electrumcap, and Goldcap. Often when describing mushrooms people will refer to them based on the color of their cap; which can be very deceiving, and sometimes fatal, as to which species of fungus they have.
