Recognized by sight: I won’t give definite answers without microscopy, because that is sometimes the only way to know for certain. In some cases even that is not enough. In this case the sort of shaggy scaly center on the pileus indicative of Petasatus looks similar to the Petasatus that I have confirmed, though. Petasatus is an edible species. Though it is similar in appearance to Salicinus var. Americanus (Americanus may or may not be identical to Salicinus, but is visually different it seems) Either of those psychedelic species would be recognizable by bluing or graying of the stem and I find the cap to be more striate. (having radiating fibers in the cap skin) Though I don’t endorse hunting mushrooms that are illegal to possess in the US. I would still like for people to be informed for their own safety. There are look-alikes that can make you sick, so be extra careful. Here is a good place to start, but a decent microscope would be good
