Recognized by sight: Last night I got a DNA sequence from similar material sent to me from the same location. I was surprised that it matched Psilocybe cyanescens rather than Psilocybe azurescens. See discussion and sequence data on https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/66680418

“similar” is not always the same.

multiple species in the same location?

Best to do the DNA on the same example documented here (apparently not available).

Unless you also have photos and microscopy elsewhere for what you did sequence?
