Some psilocybe species can look awfully similar, but not this one: robust fruit body, convoluted, in-rolled cap edge, dark center to hygrophanous cap, strongly bluing (and not so coincidentally, moderately to strongly active) and white edges to the gills! Nice. I could ID this one from your photo series alone, IF I lived in Georgia! Guess that hurricanes bring blessings as well as devastation!
