Trash them.

They're definitely not psychoactive and look suspiciously galerina-ish. If so, the spores will be a rusty orange-brown color.

possible suspects include

Galerina mutabilis
Galerina veneata
conocybe falaris
Galerina autumnalis

one is edible (Galerina mutabilis) which your mushrooms happen to most strongly resemble (in my oppinion), the rest deadly, definately not worth the chance. throw away

i agree throw them out not worth the risk

what you want to look for is pann subbs they will be in found in horse stables in the compost pile of horse manure and straw. from what ive heard so cal doesnt have many actives. maybe only pann subbs. anyways read the hunting faq here there are pics and a good descript of pannealous subbalteatus good luck hunting peace

california ha psilocybe stuntzii, subfimetaria, cyanacens, pelliculosa, semilancaeta in the north, as well as several panaeolus varieties. basically all the pacific northwest mushies can be found there, tho later in the fall the farther south you go. probably very poor chances of finding anything n S cal.

I see you've already gotten plenty of good advice. I'll just mention that rusty brown spore prints are something you want to avoid very strongly. They are an indication of mushrooms which are often very difficult to identify to species accurately and include several deadly mushrooms.

The psychoactive species which somewhat resemble the ones you found will have purplish brown or black spore prints. You also will want to watch for blue staining. Those aren't enough to identify accurately, but they are a couple things that will help get you in that direction more quickly.

For edibles, you'll probably do best to focus on a few species that are easy to identify at first. The best way to learn the edibles is to find a local mycological society and hang out with them a bit. Most of those people focus on edibles only, and they can give you lots of first hand tips on how to find and identify edible species.

In general, decide on what you'd like to find, then study about them. Find out the key characteristics for identification, and what habitats and seasons they grow in. Then go out and look. It's also a good idea to learn the deadly mushrooms that you might find so that you can be sure you're not potentially eating one of them. There aren't that many, and it helps if you know that the worst that's likely to happen if you make a mistake is spend all night puking and having diarrhea instead of wondering if you need a liver transplant.

Good luck and happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
