The best I can do is link you to Workman’s journal at the shroomery, you’ll have to download his PDF which shows all of the described species belonging in section Semilanceatae and sect. Aztecorum.

My main reasons for suggesting this species was the very pale colour of the pileus drying to almost white which is an identifying characteristic of species belonging in sect. Aztecorum, there are two blue staining species described from India that belong in sect. Aztecorum, P. natarajanii and P. pseudoaztecorum, the macroscopic characteristics shown in these images look to be a good match for the latter.

Any reference (online or otherwise) to Psilocybe pseudoaztecorum and what draws you to the ID for this observation?

a bit light for a Psilocybe – also I’m not quite seeing the bruising described by CC.
