Yes there were Fagus grandifolia around the riverbank.

I have been searching for interesting fungi around riverbanks (blue staining Mycena sp., Morchella sp., Gymnopilus sp., and others) and have been seeing very interesting things.

I forgot to mention, these were found last year. I had posted them on another fungi site but nobody knew what they were. If I remember correctly I found them in either May-July, it was not to warm out but humid.

I was rummaging through my herbarium in the “unidentified section” and found these.

Were there a lot of beech trees nearby? Birch?

Yes the older cap was covered with purple brown spores, I took a piece of tissue and lightly moistened it then dabbed it on the cap to see the color.

Psilocybe probably

It looks like the one is covered in purple-brown spores, so probably a psilocybe.
