I unplugged awhile back so I was unable to view the page, appreciate the info. It would be awesome to see it sequenced or at least thoroughly scoped to confirm.

I linked the post in that last comment. I had speculated that it was a possibility based on the cap shots and Alan Rockafeller was pretty confident in the ID after seeing the underside. He also mentioned a ‘var. nigrescins’ thats been described under the name Psilocybe caerulescens which can appear dark like this. The site has been revisited by Patrick Harris who posted some additional photos in the large forum. He’s also gathing some for prints or to start a culture.

Whats the consensus on FB? I had my concerns due to the distribution and mainly the gills appearing jet black. This seems inconsistent with the descriptions but I have no first hand experience with this species.

I’m really excited about this observation!

If this is really P. caerulescens it’s the first record in Texas. Originally posted on the Texas ID group on fb.
