I agree that this waits to be discovered. Hidden and overlooked. There were a great number in just this area. I am happy to report my finding!

I think Psilocybe caerulescens is much more widespread in the South East, USA, it’s just that people don’t search for it in most states because those that target psilocybin mushrooms for spiritual purposes, tend to stick to Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens.

Really cool to see this find.
