Additionally, the article number is the last part of the updated DOI pattern, e.g., the following DOI is assigned to the article number 1061: 10.5586/am.1061.

Cover Page

On the cover In Poland, Psilocybe serbica M. M. Moser & E. Horak var. bohemica (Šebek) Borovička, Oborník & Noordel. has hitherto been found only in the vicinity of Lubawka village. It is also known from the Czech Republic (locus classicus near Brno) and perhaps also from Austria. Psilocybe serbica var. bohemica is very rare, the total number of known localities in Europe is less than 30. Moreover, many localities of this fungus have been damaged by the “magic mushroom hunters”, because it is known for high concentration of psychotropic tryptamine-like alkaloids.
