we'll have to wait for a TI but my best guess is Panaeolus sphinctrinus / Panaeolus papilionaceus (var. parvisporus?). not sure. have you taken a spore print?

I think those are Psilocybe semilanceata.  Not completely sure though, the pics aren't very clear.


The caps seem to be splitting properly.

And the blackening of the stems may be bluing.

It would help to know the spore print color.

They look a lot like libs to me as well, however, the lack of a nipple makes me skeptic. Also, they've obviously been sitting in a plastic container for too long. It looks like they've been starting to rot.

That's a tough one. I would guess they are an inactive species, possibly Panaeolus. I'm not sure I've ever seen liberty caps with stipes like that.

yeah that's what made me question them too. i've seen a ton of lib lookalikes, but not many seem to have the lib nipple. i've seen libs without the characteristic nip, but that seems to be the exception and not the rule

Nah, the stems look wrong to me.

I grant you that. But sufficiently hydrated, many species may show this sort of splitting.

Again, possibly, but it may also be just blackening because of age.

True. Although I think it'll come out dark purple brown, which won't help too much. But I'm just guessing here.

The stipes do not look libby at all, that's true.
