Panaeolus cambodginiensis is a potent hallucinogenic mushroom which contains psilocybin.


The cap is less than 23 mm across, with a convex shape and an incurved margin when young, expanding to broadly convex. The cap surface is smooth, often cracking with irregular fissures. The gills are gray to black. The stem is 5 to 10 cm tall, 4 mm thick, and slightly swollen at the base. The spores are blackish brown, shaped like lemons, smooth, measuring 11 x 8 micrometres. The entire mushroom quickly bruises blue where it is handled.

It can be differentiated from Panaeolus cyanescens by microscopic characteristics.
