that helps when ID ing mature specimens where gills have turned or spore print is known. How about immature specimens like these?

Psilocybe has grey to dark Gills and black /purple spores. The brown Gills on these are all Wrong for a psilocybe

Having never seen a Psilocybe I thought a recent posting of it might be Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia given its small stature, hygrophanous cap and cortina. Not! Obviously I’m having some difficulty separating the two. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
