Observation 151808: Psilocybe pelliculosa (A.H. Sm.) Singer & A.H. Sm.
When: 2013-11-11
Collection location: Washington, USA [Click for map]

Notes: These caught my attention with surprise.

They look very similar to tiny versions of Psilocybe pelliculosa, and they might just be. The stems are extremely thin though, and a stereoscope would be needed to verify a couple of blue spots that I believe I saw while in the field. Even then, it would probably require chemical analysis and DNA sequencing to be trustworthy towards taxonomy.
