Alan and Curecat seem to get particularly excited by mushrooms with black spores. I concur.

The pileus is not very dark, nor does it have that metallic hue, and the stipe is not as reddish as P. papilionaceus tends to be. Also, I looked at the “veil remnants”, but the margin really does not look toothed, it just looks like it is splitting, like how the rest of the pileus is all cracked.

P. semiovatus var. phalaenarum or P. antillarum is my guess… Can’t decide if they are synonymous or not…

Thanks Alan.

Hey, is that what they talk about mottled gills? and Is that Panaeolus supposed to be psychoactive?
