Notes: Found a few miles from Ripplebrook Ranger Station.
Growing on rotten wood. Caps hygrophanous.
Odor mildly but distinctly spermatic.
Spores 7-9 × 4.5-5.5 microns.
Cheilocystidia difficult to see; had to prepare four slides to finally find them.

… was white, so it cannot be a Psilocybe. The colors, smell, etc. all match the description of M. maculata.
Was the station nearby a clearcut or logging road by chance? Besides the white gills and strange stem color, the spermatic smell, the habitat difference – they have a vague resemblence to Psilocybe pelliculosa imo.
