Not sure bwhere you got that or those pages of descriptions but I just read therough them and there are many errors in those descriptions, habitats a, seasons and other comments.
Gary lincoff made up the name stuntziis blue legs.
No one in The pacific northwest has ever referred to them as stuntzii's blue legs. They are psilocybe stuntzii and they are n0rmally calll blue-ringers and they comprise at least three species which are macroscopically similar.
Oh yes, Psilocybe caerulipes is not a dung lover. it grows in woodchips and bark mulch.
Weil called them blue veils or washington blue veils but they grow in oregon and washington and all the way to British Coloumbia, canada. His silvatica info is incorrect and so is the info for the baeocystis.
Anyway, there ae some good pictures here at this site in the archives of P. caerupies form Ohio.
It resembles P. cyanescens a little in the fact that the caps become wavy with age. It is a chestnut color when fresh drying to a sandy straw-yellow with age, hygrophanous and the stem, whitesh becomes blue when handled or damaged.
