These were found along a creek growing off rotting logs (alder) and out of grassy patches. They have a similiarity to P. Stunzii and P. Cyanescens, however there seems to be differences wich can be seen with the eye. There are no known active Psilocybin sp. in Montana as far as I know. There could possibly be another undocumented species in this area as well. One seems to have a nipple and has the appearance of P. Azurescens but there are obvious differences. There is obvious and rapid bluing with oxidation. These are absolutely active! I will document this one later on.

Curious to see how this one pans out. I feel there’s a lot to be discovered still in those Mountain Time Zone states.

I would expect there to be several species of Psilocybe mushroons in Montana, despite there being no reports.

I think more people should try Montana parks for photography and really see what’s up.
