I know from years of experience in Oregon with both psilocybe cyanescens, and another species of psilocybe I believe is azurescens, they both are viscous when fresh and moist.

Stropharia aeruginosa vs. Psilocybe sp.

Stropharia aeruginosa should have a vivid blue-green cap, very slimy, fading to yellow-ochre as it matures and the blue-green is lost completely. Does not stain blue. It has a brown-black ring. Below the ring the stipe is covered in fine white scales. The gills are white at first and turn clay brown, sometimes with a white edge. Spores print is purple-brown.
Most psilocybe species have a brown, hygrophanous cap that matures to tan-ochre. The cap and stipe will usually shows blue staining when it ages, or is damaged or bruised. They also have a purple-brown spore print.
If your mushroom has a hygrophanous cap, stains blue when damaged, has a purple-brown spore print, and was growing on rotting wood/wood chips/dune grasses…. You have a psilocybe mushroom. Pics show obvious blue staining on cap and stem. Observers description translated by Google "Immediately discolored green-blue, no remains of velum, no dandruff, no mycelium.
