I would really appreciate help with this one. Are there any dark purple spored mushrooms saprotrophic to wood that are poisonous? These look very similar to picture of Psilocybe caerulipes that I had seen taken in Maine.

Habitat:
Found on well decomposed beech or birch log in the woods, PA/ NJ border area.

Gills:
Yellowish tan with green tinges, attached adnate to sinuate gills

Stem:
Length 3-5 mil, Thickness 3mil, color, bare, small vertical lines, hollow, thick, etc.

Cap:
Diameter 3 centimeter, viscid when moist then color is yellowish tan with greenish blue tinge, texture initially slightly gelatinous with small white or silver fibers showing, Convex, umbilicate while retaining a slight umbo, many irregular.

Spore print color:
very dark purple brown

Bruising:
bruises dark brownish after 24hours of refrigeration, no bruising without refridgeration.

Other information:
Pleasant mushroom smell, taste slightly bitter similar to a reishi taste, gills browning with age.

Most definitely not Psilocybe. Maybe Hypholoma fasciculare

Perhaps Hypholoma capnoides? The gills on the fasciculare I find are usually darker.
