I think Bogbodia uda…

is a reasonable proposal for this observation. One thing to check is habitat. My understanding is that B. uda only occurs in peat bogs, or at least near peat bogs. The following observation comes from a peat bog area obs 79432. Note that the original proposal was “Hypholoma udum”, the old name for this species. There are other similar-looking species that are still placed in Hypholoma. Here’s an example obs 263728. So, I agree with Cody, likely either Bogbodia or Hypholoma. I doubt these represent a species of Psilocybe.

I still think they are bogbodia uda

That being said they could easily be one of the numerous small thin hypholoma.

From my understanding these types of things are difficult to separate from one another just by sight alone, even by professionals. If you really want to get to the bottom of it youll have to get them sequenced or check microscopic details.

As cool as it would be for you to have found an unknown moss inhabiting Psilocybe in our home state it seems incredibly unlikely. The more likely answer by far IMO is Bogbodia uda, they look identical to me and are growing in the right habitat.

Goodluck to you George!
