Growing from leaves

I’m pretty sure these tiny delicate Psilocybes are the same as the ones in this observation from 2009:


Both collections were growing from leaf litter and did not appear to be attached to wood, not even a small stick. They bruise a dark blue pretty quickly after being handled, not slowly as is reported for P. caerulipes. These mushrooms also seem to be a bit small for P. caerulipes.

Nine specimens were collected and dried. Hopefully somebody will want to sequence them.
