The Psychedelic Frontier summarizes new findings from research published late last year in The Bryologist. A lichen sample collected over 30 years ago in South America by ethnobotanist Wade Davis was determined to be a new species. Chemical analysis suggests the presence of both psilocybin and 5-MeO-DMT. 

Read the article from Psychedelic Frontier, or read the original research paper from The Bryologist.

The lead author of the study is Michaela Schmull of Harvard University Herbaria. The corresponding author is James D. Lawrey of George Mason University.
