T. magnivelare is under “special protection” status in Mexico (Poe 2009). There is no special status in the US, but harvesting of T. magnivelare mushrooms is amount restricted to prevent unsustainable over harvesting (Hosford 1997). Harvest has been restricted in some areas of Washington state (Amaranthus et al. 2000).
