Yes, they look unusual, stout and robust. Maybe that’s due to the fact that they grow for several years now in a new habitat, 10’000 miles away from their original habitat, different composition of the substrate, other climatic patterns, maybe they have adapted a bit to the new environment. The staining is very strong, dark-blue, almost blackish. Just added two new pics, the average diameter of the caps is too big for Psilocybe cyanescens and the caps are rarely undulated. For comparison a Psilocybe cyanescens patch from Switzerland: http://mushroomobserver.org/81302?q=8j1y
