i was out today huntin and i came across a patch of shrooms but im not sure what they are. any help would be appreciated. i found about 20 or so shrooms growin under a big log in a mulchy deer shit enriched mud. they were generously spaced out. the shrooms themselves vary in size. the smallest being a 1/2 " in length to over 2" in length. i believe there might be two diff. species here because some of the caps are disc shaped, whereas some are frisbee shaped. the frisbee shaped capped shrooms have a fuzzy root at the bottoms and the stems are generally straight as a post. the disc shaped shrooms tend to be a little bigger and have a little more of a curve to the stem. both are the same in color, the color being a very white stem and a tannish almost light brown color encompassing the entire cap. i havent seen any bruising on any of the shrooms. the frisbee shaped shrooms have larger caps than the other type, with the biggest cap being 1 1/2 times the size of a half dollar piece. i picked these in west virginia(the upper south) its been very humid and rainy lately, and has been very warm up until a few weeks ago. anybody that knows anything about these shrooms please write back as soon as possible. thanks for the help in advance.
also the disc shaped caps are flat as a board and the stems on both are a little thicker than a pencil the whole length of the stem. both species i found look very similiar to Psilocybe caerulipes but do not bruise, and the gills on the species i found are the same color as the stem- almost pure white.
