Cool mushroom. The gills do look really light brown, but aside from that they definitely look like something in the bluing Psilocybe clade. I saw the purple/brown spore print in the other observation- some species just have surprisingly light gills when fresh, but I can see the gills darkened up and match the print colour well after having dried.
