coming down to central (west of sarasota) area in the beginning of april. if i get a chance to meander past some pastures i might do some photographing. i want to find some mature cubensis growing. my friend has grown before so i know what they can look like. i am not hunting for ingestion right now just identification. what to do... 1) do a spore check...make sure they're purple 2) check for blueing 3) check for veil 4) cap color with just those few guidelines, would you think that i.d.ing a cubensis in a cow pasture of central florida would be that hard? what other types of mushies grow along side with cubensis? i've heard of bad little browns that people mistake as cubensis. *remember i'm not necessarily interested in eating these until i absolutely educate myself* i've think i';ve got some guidebooks to use too.

You didn't mention habitat specifically in your numbered list, but I think you have the right idea. If you've seen the species fresh before you know basically what it looks like. If you find mushrooms that look like that in the corect habitat and the other characteristics (the ones you listed) are correct then you've got them.
