This species was categorized by French botanist Roger Heim.It was from this species that Dr. Albert Hofmann, working with specimens grown in his Sandoz laboratory, first isolated and named the active entheogenic compounds psilocybin and psilocin.

This mushroom is in the species Mexicanae. Other mushrooms in the genus include Psilocybe atlantis and Psilocybe samuiensis. Ramirez-Cruz et al. (2013) considered Psilocybe acutipilea from Brazil to be a possible synonym of Psilocybe mexicana, in which case it would be the senior synonym, but the type specimen was too moldy for them to be certain

.There are more similarities than differences between these two types of mushrooms.
The main similarity is of course that they both come from Mexico and that they are both used by the Mazatec indigenous people, a tribe that comes from the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, the region that introduced magic mushrooms to the world.
The Mazatec have a long tradition of using magic mushrooms for spiritual and ritualistic use. They eat the magic mushrooms only at night because they believe that if they eat them in daylight they will go mad.
Usually, many members of the same family eat the mushrooms together; father, mother, children, uncles, and aunts all participate in the transformation of their minds as they elevate consciousness onto a higher state.
Everything changed for the western world when in the 1950’s two Americans were allowed to participate in the Mazatec rituals, it effectively introduced psilocybin and salvia to the rest of the world. This influenced many important players in the psychedelic revolution and changed modern man’s relationship to psychedelics forever.
