Abstract: The literature on the use of psychotropic fungi in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea has been reviewed. An attempt has been made to evaluate whether the previously reported “mushroom madness” still exists in the Waghi Valley. Interviews with the local population indicated that most of the indigenous knowledge about the psychotropic effects of fungi has been lost.
