When: 2007-10-02

Collection location: Diamond Lake, Douglas Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Also called Psilocybe thrausta. The spores were a light purplish brown, smooth, elliptical and seemed to be about the right size and had a somewhat off-center germ pore. These appeared to be young specimens and the gills were still mostly pale beige. The whitish scales on the stem turned brownish with handling.
They seemed to basically fit the descriptions although perhaps a little more squat than most of the pictures I could find.

It would be even more dramatic once those gills color…
