This is probably a Psilocybe from section Mexicanae, but I don’t think it is P. mexicana. The cap is expanding quite a bit on this collection – P. mexicana stays bell shaped at maturity and doesn’t expand to nearly plane. It would be interesting to see the spores and cystidia. Also run it through the key to Mexicanae in Guzman’s monograph and check for pseudorhiza.

La microspcopía dijo que sí…
