Inocybe aeruginascens contains psilocybin, baeocystin, and aeruginascin with a still unknown structure in the caps and the stipes. The content of psilocybin and baeocystin has been investigated. The psilocybin and baeocystin content of mushrooms from the same location and with similar mass varied. No correlation has been found between the mass of the mushrooms and the content of psilocybin and baeocystin. There was an extensive correlation between the content of psilocybin and baeocystin.

No relation between the location and the content of the indole derivatives seems to exist.
