If you want a very savvy and good person to perform these studies, I encourage you to email Mycologist Alan Rockefeller and ask if he would like to.

I kept it, plan to do more microscopic taxonomy, I’ve never seen anything like it here. I also corrected my vote.

Important Collection.

This collection should be saved and studied with DNA, microscopy, and chemosystematics. I cannot tell you what it is, but it may be one of the reported Psilocybin species in the genus Pholiota. However, and less likely, it may be an undescribed species. You should be encouraged to add more photographs showing the subtleties of this collection.
